Posting just for posting's sake now. LOL. I have a friend who dropped a 7 series turbo onto his 535. It was just stupid fast. I assume this could also be done on a 3. Anyone done it? what about superchargers?

i think you mean he put in an aftermarket turbo kit that was MEANT for a 7 series, because if he says it was a turbo FROM a 7 series, then he is just lying. im not too sure if there are even turbo kits for the 7s, it depends on which engine, but it would have to be custom made... a turbo charged V12, hmmm

Originally posted by e30fanm3@Jan 4 2005, 05:44 PM he was right, it was a factory turbo out of a european 745i, which has a turbo 3.5. but the 745 came with a low compression turbo head. i dont know if he put that on though
saw one of those (turbo 745) at the last BMW meet.....mmmmi was in :
I'b be so careful with that since the factory engine was not built for the loads and compression of forced induction, plus the fuel input should be changed. But I'd hesitate to use is with stock bearings
