Bmw E30 - 8sek hunt - Daily driver

Hi All.. iam at other bimmer forums with my build thread.

so why not here to !



A bit of info on the car then for those that havent had the time to see the green "hulk" before.

The car then.

BMW E30 2door
plastic hood and trunk, and plastic windows in the back.

Engine.
M20b25 Drill ø stroked to 2.7L
Ross Pistons
Custom rods
The head is an standard 2.5 with crmo retainers, stainless steel valves, and heavyduty rockers
and PPF camshaft

Its making 646whp and 832wnm at the moment
With this power it made 9,6 and 235kmh at the 1/4 mile

And this is with split rear end and a zf gearbox

Now the target for 2011
The powertrain will remain the same, the clutch setup will be changed if necessary.

The goal is to hit the 8sec on the 1/4mile, to this then will need more than 646wheel horses.









These components will be changed

Fuel system, Turbo, cam, injectors and then new pistons

the fuel system for this year will be completely from Weldon racing pump who is also a new sponsor for 2011


fuel system
Weldon 2345


Regulator
Weldon 2047


Filters also from Weldon.


And for the daily driver setup will need an Weldon Fuel pump controller
(this will make the fuel much colder and also so the pump wont run att 100% all the time)


injectors will be bosch 1600cc
Turbo and cam is not clear yet, but its between a PT71 or BorgWarner 375 or 475


More to come

/ Karel


Its standing still in the garage.. still waiting for some parts. such as Pistons and The turbo.

Here are some pics of the car.

and some parts.

Waiting for new parts


This is an mess.. but soon there will be complete weldon stuff


Needs a bit cleaning up in here i think











Finally got the stuff from weldon.. and others



Have been talking to ross pistons.. and got an super good deal from them.. Spoke to CP as well but they havent had the time to offer me anything.. so Looks like im be running ross pistons.. feels good.. they have been working good for 3 years.

Still some small updates.

The Turbo has arrived..

and some stuff for the exhaust and the intake.







New sponsor is CatCams Uk

they will supply me with an custom cam.

The Manifold has arrived..

a good friend of mine took his time to make this.









starting to feel the heat.. so i went to the garage and installed the old engine.

This one is gonna work as a dummy for the intake,turbo pipes and downpipe fabrication
















Iv got some more speed parts in the mailbox.

This time i got.

The custom made camshaft that Catcams made, with matching valve springs and retainers

PPF here i sweden got me an good price on oversize valves and runners for the intake im gonna build



CUSTOM CUSTOM !!

Now there is SPEED !!

Yesterday we spent 4 hours on mounting the injector sockets THAT SUCKED !!!!

But today we had more speed

I went by My motorguy to help him out, i changed the bushings in the rods to a much harder and better ones.







We made an rigg for the injector sockets


Johnny keept on welding up the intake




Johnny then moved on to the turbo pipes, dident say a thing during the evening and the it was finished





I did start with the wg pipes






one of the pipes to the wg


Then i did the downpipe


johnny finished up the turbo pipes





when Johnny was finished with the turbo pipes we took some time to admire it


2 happy guys












MORE TO COME

update Time.

Its been quite for som time.. and that have sucked..

All of the stand still has been due to the motor guy has to much to handle on 1 person.
But now it seems that the speed is upp again.

The new bearing is sanded




the engine block is flattened





Drilling the engine block







Milling for the steal thread





Hening the last of the block







When the head got welded it got a bit twisted






A friend of mine wanted to try a new foil he got home.. so i voluntared









Jocke started to lay down the foil


A bunch of friends got over to se the final product

















Hopefully im putting togheter the engine block tomorow and this weekend its going in.

The Head is almost done, ready to be installed

Stefan at engson motor made the track for the steel ring to be seated.


The head is leveled at both sides










1mm oversize valves from PPF


2 friends of mine came over and helped out with the wg piping


starting to look good


i welded up the dp with my friends TIG








Helgen då va jag på kjula o hjälpte grabbarna att skruva.. fernis kardan experten.. spelar ingen roll
att stödlagret är borta man kör ändå


Blocket är så gott som klart. allt är moment draget och på plats.. små grejer kvar.




waiting for the head !






if it goes to plan the car should be ready for startup this weekend.
