That said I just want a 'little' bit more out of the 4.8is... It's always lovely to give it the heavy right and squirt out of a corner/overtake and surprise the hell out of others...

Speaking of which.... does anyone know anything about a Dinan 'stroker' kit supposedly around some time ago?
I have been a Dinan fan since 2002. I don't recall a stroker kit. I do recall that 10 or more years ago you could purchase a S65 stroker motor but I don't remember anything for an X5. If I remember correctly it had to be installed at the factory or by a qualified Dinan shop. The cost of just the S65 engine was around $25,000.
