Frankenmotor Install Prep Time!!!

Didn't get parts today, so I prepped the chassis!!! Hooray for me and Joe!!


Here are a few shots of the cleaned up engine bay.




Here's a shot of the freshly installed IX brake booster and master cylinder.


Here's the shot that shows the mounting bolts and nuts for the IX booster. Pain in the motherfucking ass to get to. Joe had to contort and fold himself into Samus' Ball form to get them undone and redone.


Here's some shots of some of the new leather ///M stitched goodies I got...




One more shot with some foreshadowing. I hear that makes the story more interesting.

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

woot, bout time and i have changed like 2 E30 brake boosters, and 3-4 clutch master cylinders now, also last week just did the pedal cluster...its not that hard you little girl

the upper right brake booster bolt is the worst to get to but theres a hole right in the gas pedal to stick the socket though, piece of cake

Old Wrench is on a distinguished road
I had a 78 euro 323i/6, balanced and port matched. I could take the early
E-30 325i getting on to the autobahn, and kill them in the corners.

I had studied what AC Schnitzer had done with the E-30 when they built the 210 coupe. The took the engine block from the 325e, which was actually a low compression 2.7 and put it under a 325i head, and in a 325i sport coupe. They added a wild cam, put the
324td ehaust manifold and turbo, an Audi fuel injection system and made Alpina cry.

So being the brave sort that I am, I copied them and built my own. The advantage to this build is how it tears up the corners, no one can touch me between Fulda and Hanau. Because having too much weight at one end of the vehicle desrtoys the art of driving.
