Ok before i start this is not just another post requesting they want to turbo there 318i or engine swap that ends up going no-where.
Proof - I converted my car from Auto to Manual "not a cheap operation but if im willing to do that, then an engine swap or turbo isnt really that much"
So with that in mind, and knowing to well alot of the costs i am ready to go ahead with a major performance upgrade.
Currently i am running a BMW 318i 95 m43 "Aussie and Jap Engine"
Which is a SOHC Slow Piece of crap, even with my 4.1 ratio dif "makes it kill any other 318i" Cold air intake, Performance ECU, and so on, its still slow and well is sad to call a bmw engine.
I have spoken to this company that is selling a complete turbo kit for the
and it will fit, but am i better off buying a 325i engine, 3.0m3 engine "dont like the newer vanos engine"
I do know what is involved with the turbo system and insurance wise, but what is involved with the engine..
I need to create a parts list that will be required to work out a good estimate of the price... Also a time frame that you believe would be realistic with this job.
AND PLEASE DO NOT SAY BUY A 325i or something like that, i am aussie and there isnt many people that understand the price of bmws here
Example of Redbooks Pricing
National average price - private sale* $9,000 - $11,800
National average price - private sale* $18,900 - $22,300
And i like my car to much to sell, trying to find another metallic black scawz is to hard especially with a market the size of Australia
So can anyone or everyone put in there sugestion
