The BMW S65 is a naturally aspirated V8 petrol engine which replaced the S54 straight-six engine and was produced from 2007–2013.

Derived from the S85 V10 engine first used in the E60 M5, the S65 shares the same basic architecture and aluminium construction. Unlike most other BMW M engines (which use the "S" model code), the S65 is not related to a regular production ("M" or "N") BMW engine.[1]

The S65 was introduced in the E92 M3 and was chosen as International Engine of the Year for the 3.0 to 4.0 L category in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.[2]

Design[edit]

S65 engine with the top plastic air plenum removed to reveal the 8 individual throttle bodies.

The S65 shares the same 92 mm (3.6 in) bore and 75.2 mm (3.0 in) stroke cylinder dimensions with the S85 V10. Other common features include individual throttle bodies,[3] ionic current knock sensing,[4] variable valve timing ("double-VANOS") and the 12.0:1 compression ratio.[5] The length of the S65 is 734 mm (28.9 in).[citation needed] The redline is 8400 rpm.

To reduce weight, a wet-sump lubrication system with two electrically operated scavenging pumps and a main oil pump replaces the three-pump wet-sump system used on the V10.[6][7][8]

The alternator disconnects from the engine during acceleration to maximise power, only charging the battery during braking and decelerating whenever possible, in a system BMW calls Brake Energy Regeneration.[6]

The engine control unit (ECU/DME) is a Siemens MSS60,[9][10] which is based on the Siemens MSS65 ECU used in the S85 engine[11] and is capable of more than 200 million calculations per second.[citation needed]

The S65 weighs 202 kg (445 lb), which is 15 kg (33 lb) less than its S54 straight-6 engine predecessor.[12]

The firing order for the S65 engine is 1-5-4-8-7-2-6-3, which is different from the typical BMW V8 firing order of 1-5-4-8-6-3-7-2.[13]

S65B40[edit]

The S65B40 has a bore of 92 mm (3.6 in) and a stroke of 75.2 mm (3.0 in).

Applications:

S65B44[edit]

The S65B44 is an enlarged version of the S65, due to a larger stroke of 82 mm (3.2 in).[14] It also uses a lightweight titanium exhaust.[15]
