thats a proven set up....on some of the highest hp cars.
feel free to tell us why its bad....

using a thicker gasket to lower compression on stock pistons is a bandaid. Run the limit of the stock compression or pony up to throw in some forged slugs.

ur "generalized" statement of "oem hg, copper rings (what copper rings?), and arp studs" leaves WAYYYY too much to be thought about

what kind of boost (s/c or turbo?)
how much boost?
any other motor build plans?
etc, etc, etc

All these parameters can change your choice on HG for boost....

your complete lack of thought and rather lame "advice" continues to be down right horrible. Carry on

exactly.....

from under the car....not from the engine bay.... Th crank position sensor on the M52/S52/M54 can be done without removing ANYTHING........it s tight indeed and it may take a few minutes but all in all, it's honestly a 10mn job minimum with a max of say 30mn start-finish

when I knew where it was, it took me 15mn to do the job from under the car


it can t be seen but you can feel it out.....My big black hands must be littl girly hands then
