Official Declaration of insanity

Here's my new shiny E30 at the home of it's old owner.





As you can see here, it has alot of goodies, including the Mtech 1 steering wheel.



This is what the engine bay looks like now:


This is what it'll look like when I'm done:


and that won't be just any M52 either. It'll be a super cool stroker 3.0L M52 running a full S50 cylinder head and OBD I. I figure it'll make somewhere in the vicinity of 225whp or about 261bhp. Aside from that, I'm going to tuck and paint the bumpers (flat black for that old school M look) add smiley ellipsoids, shadow chrome the window trim and kidneys, and add 16" SSR Competition rims. Should be pretty hot when all is said and done.

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.

Dude, nice E30. Welcome to the dark side. You want to use my garage for your swap? I'll even put you up, and feed you. That way I can document it and make sure I have everything set for when I do it.
Hey, how come your front valence has 4 holes on the bottom and mine only has two?

Hey, Victorville, no way! My grandfather lives up in Eureka, used to live just north of Redway. I know exactly where you are. I'll be in your vicinity with the car hopefully finished this christmas for my grandfather's 93rd birthday. If you see some old dude cut you off in a silver Jaguar Vandenplas, that's him. Don't fuck with him, he's crazy.

The IS cars have two extra openings in the bottom to route air to the oil cooler. The ES cars have no oil cooler thus no need to route air to it.
