ARP S54 Head Stud Kit (E46M3 / MZ3 / MZ4) Virtually every top professional BMW engine builder relies on ARP Pro Series head studs, particularly on the S54 3.2 liter engine. ARP uses a premium grade 8740 alloy that is rated far superior to "aircraft" quality. Each stud is heat-treated to 200,000 psi, ensuring complete heat penetration. ARP studs are threaded after heat-treat, which gives them 1000% (that's ten times!) better fatigue strength than studs threaded prior to heat-treat. Threading the studs after heat-treating is more difficult and costly (as it's harder on tooling) but the results are well worth the effort. These simply are the best S54 head studs we've found for the E46 M3 6 cylinder engines, and we highly recommend them in both the racing and forced induction arena. (Due to the additional clamping force between the head and block, these are IDEAL for turbo charging and supercharging!)

Converting from the factory BMW head bolts to head studs makes it much easier to assemble an engine, especially a racing powerplant which must be serviced frequently (and quickly!), and also ensures proper alignment of the head and gasket. Head studs also provide more accurate and consistent torque loading. Here's why: When you use bolts to secure the head, the fastener is actually being "twisted" while it's being torqued to the proper reading. Accordingly, the bolt is reacting to two different forces simultaneously. A head stud should be installed in a "relaxed" mode -- never crank it in tightly using a jammed nut. If everything is right, the stud should be installed finger tight. Then, when applying torque to the nut, the stud will stretch only on the vertical axis. An information sheet is provided with each set. Kit includes everything pictured -- 14 head bolts, washers, bolts and assembly lubricant.

ARP is a company that prides itself on performance and durability, no matter the application. Offering the finest engine hardware money can buy is the driving initiative at ARP and this is evidenced by the staggering amount of satisfied customers and race teams the world over.​

Air Pump/EGR Block-Off Plate with Gasket Deleting the secondary air pump from your exhaust? This plate is the perfect touch! The air pump (also known as EGR system) has proven to be a headache for many BMW owners and it's one of the first things to go when building a racecar. The air pump is not required in many racing classes and deleting it saves some weight, complexity, and won't interfere with the rest of the exhaust or engine management system (deleting the air pump will require special programming in the ECU, a simulator, or a stand-alone engine management system). When removing the air pump valve from the head the port is left open that needs to be blocked off. That's where this little plate comes in. This is actually a factory BMW part and includes a new steel gasket to the head. It will slide over the existing studs and secure with the existing nuts.

E36 325, 328 M3 Ferrea Competition Big Valves

Featuring a +1mm oversize, these Ferrea Competition PlusTM valves are some of the best available. Intake head diameter is 33.95mm, Exhaust is 31.5 mm. To manufacture the valves Ferrea uses special aerospace quality alloys, including EV8-Z18, which provides high tensile strength. An exclusive two-step slow forging process ensures proper grain flow and virtually eliminated any damage to the material structure. The valves are then heat treated and stress-relieved over a 48-hour period, which is the crucial base of the molecular integrity. These valves feature avionics-quality hard chrome along with a specially applied hard tip. The engineering staff at Ferrea spends countless hours conducting flow bench tests to achieve an optimum balance of flow, velocity and efficiency in the design of this valve. As a result, these valves incorporate smoother radiuses and unique undercuts. Price includes 12 intake and 12 exhaust valves.

The goal at Ferrea is to create the finest valves and bearings money can buy. With a staggering array of applications for virtually every production engine in existence both gas and diesel Ferrea has the parts you need to finish your next engine project with confidence.

This replacement gasket from Elring is perfect to prevent any further oil leaks.

Includes everything needed to re-seal your engine's head.

Elring is one of the biggest OEM names in the manufacturing of high quality gaskets that are available for very affordable prices.

Elring Cylinder Head Gasket - M52 2.5L 2.8L, M54 2.5L 3.0L

The head gasket is exposed to high pressure and heat for extremely long periods of time. Over a long period of time, these may develop a slight oil leak and must be replaced ASAP to prevent damage to the engine. It should also be replaced any time that the engine head is removed to ensure the best seal possible.
