Low Compression BMW S65 4-liter V8
For applications requiring 750 to 1000 hp, VF-Engineering recommends the VFE90RE Race Engine.
The S65 motor is stripped to bare block and blueprinted. The crank is squared to the bores and head surfaces in a 5-axis CNC machine before final assembly that includes balanced and blueprinted BMW Motorsport parts.
A modest 9.8:1 compression ratio allows for 1.2 to 1.4 bar and maximum 1000 hp.
Undersize bore with forged CP Pistons
Forged H-beam Carrillo Connecting Rods
CAR bolts and fasteners
Custom gapped Total Seal ring set
Dyno-tested and driven by VF-Engineering
