Now that BMW is truly embracing the technology behind their twin turbo applications, it’s no surprise that there will be an entirely new generation of M-powered vehicles that will no longer sport large displacement, naturally aspirated V8 and V10 engines. Nowack Motors, who we checked out before with their Mini Coopers, is known for tuning BMW M engines, and their newest product is impressive.
Named the N635S 5.8 Hans Nowack Edition, the 5.0L V10 pushes out 718-hp over the factory 507-hp and revs up to 9000 rpm. This engine conversion is available for all the M5s and M6s sporting the 5.0L V10, and Nowack offers a 12 month warranty with no mileage constraint for those opting to have the work done. So while BMW is pushing ahead with their twin turbo setups and abandoning the joy of torque-heavy V10s, Nowack motors continues to embrace and give current owners a new option to compete with the new technology.
There is unfortunately not a ton of details on what goes on with the conversion other than a remapped ECU and a pair of intake air collectors that are match painted to the car. But we’re going to guess that there’s tons of bottom end work and head work. Then again, it can’t be that difficult to find a whole lot of horsepower once you crack open a V10 can it?
The official press release available after the break.

A farewell celebration for the naturally aspirated V10 masterpieces of the BMW M GmbH: NOWACK MOTORS created a world unique state-of-the-art masterpiece to celebrate the end of the era of high revving naturally aspirated BMW M engines, the N635S 5.8 “Hans Nowack Edition”, offering an unmatchable maximum power output of 718hp at 9.000rpm.
NOWACK MOTORS, the world’s no. 1 specialist company for engineering and manufacturing unique high performance engines on basis of all BMW M engines (4-, 6-, 8- and 10-cylinder) unveils a world unique naturally aspirated masterpiece, the N635S 5.8 “Hans Nowack Edition”.
The N635S 5.8 is a tribute from Oliver Nowack to his father Hans, creator of world famed race and road engines and one of the inventors of what is nowadays called ECU-Tuning. Hans Nowack was an overall technical genius who always had his own approach when engineering and building high performance engines, resulting in numerous glorious victories of his cars in international motorsports, like e.g. the victory of the European Touring Car championship with a BMW 635CSi with driver Helmut Kelleners. He never stopped to invent world-class high performance engines, and after his active career, he continued to be a mentor for his son Oliver, who followed him in his footsteps most successfully. Hans Nowack died in 2005, and Oliver created this engine to pay tribute to the lifework of his father.
It definitely is the pinnacle of all high performance engines ever built on basis of the M GmbH’s 5.0ltrs. V10 offering a standard maximum power output of 507hp.
Classic mechanical tuning techniques, the usage of the latest, most advanced coating materials and techniques combined with a most sophisticated, individual remap of the ECU were always NOWACK MOTORS’ no. 1 choice when increasing power and torque of naturally aspirated engines, further enhancing the thrill that only a naturally aspirated high performance engine provides. Forced induction, neither by supercharging nor turbo charging, never was an option to increase the performance of the 5.0ltrs. V10 engine as it does not suit the engine’s overall technical layout and characteristics. Furthermore, a forced induction engine based on a NA engine never offers the refinement and reliability of a perfectly engineered and manufactured naturally aspirated high performance engine. Thus, it is the ultimate challenge for every high performance engine manufacturer.
Each NOWACK MOTORS N635S 5.8 ?Hans Nowack Edition” is equipped with two NOWACK MOTORS bespoke intake air collectors with a higher air volume in order to provide the engine with sufficient intake air quantity.
The colour of the paintwork for the air collectors is being determined by the exterior colour of the car.
Only this time, the name differs from all other NOWACK MOTORS creations. The name does not reveal the actual maximum power output of the engine, clearly separating this unique showcase of highly sophisticated manufacture of internal combustion engines from the N700 4.8 with 715hp, the latest high performance engine creation based on the new 4.4ltrs. BMW M Biturbo V8 engine of the new era being used in the X5M and X6M. As we all know, this engine will be used to propel the upcoming new M5 of the F10 series by next year.
All internal parts of the engine are being replaced by NOWACK MOTORS’ high performance parts, thus every M5/M6 (also cars with a higher mileage), can be converted to a NOWACK MOTORS N635S 5.8 “Hans Nowack Edition”.
As every engine is brand new after the conversion, NOWACK MOTORS provides an engine warranty of 12 months without kilometer limitation.
