The car runs great with the new 94 mm bore.

Timing chain guides and chains was also replaced.

The head gaskets are 93.5 mm so the pistons needed a little extra work to make room for the head gaskets.

So now I have a B10 V8 4.7 liter :)

It pulls much harder in the low revs.

"you are right, your car has no Vanos - but the part number for the head gasket is correct - it is the same for all B10 V8.

Axel Rimpler from Alpina informed about these X5 4.6 IS part numbers.

Zyl. 1-4 BMW 11 12 7 519 406
Zyl. 5-8 BMW 11 12 7 519 410

Before the X5 4.6 IS you had to use reworked M5 head gaskets.

The X5 4.6 IS head gaskets fits the single vanos and the older B10 V8
