Sweet set-up. Why header wrap and not ceramic coating on the exhaust pieces? Header wrap tends to promote rust. It is cheaper than getting stuff coated but I don't like it makes stuff rust out.

There is actually a ceramic coating under the wrap. I used the wrap to keep under hood temps down as much as possible. Turbos are HOT. Also since I have placed those pic's on car domain I have added a cold air intake that collects air from behind the right headlight rather than collecting hot air from the turbine.

Holy snap. What's the total tab on a project like that?

LOL. When i worked at the rice shop we dumped around 18K into a Prelude motor, but we outsorced a lot of the rebuild and bore and stroke job.

Well we havenít done any runs on the dyno but we are trying to make it soon. I had a set of e30 m3 injectors (I think are 24lb) and I had them at 94% duty cycle: I have just put a set of 37lb's on and I have a m3 clutch that starts to slip after a hard run or two. This is some sort of indication of the power Iím making.

The M10 is a very stout motor and responds to mods very well.

Ditto! Sprayed the shit out of an '84 for 2yrs. and it had 200k. on it when I started! Couldn't kill the little sucker! It was a grey market car... stripped down light as hell. Scared the crap out of everbody who thought they were somebody. My little sis ended up rolling it befor I got around to the S52 swap.

i'm lookin at buying an E21 this weekend that has a blown m10 in it after 275k miles. dont know much about the motor or how it died. any advice on what are weak points or what things to do to the motor first for a little power?

the block out of the M10 was used to make race cars that made upwards of 1000hp, its a good boost engine as this guy stated above ^ theres something you can do for power
