Ok ladies and gents,
Now that the beastie is up and running, I need to get working on her again. My goal is to make a car that can be used in a drift competition but also a daily driver. So. Here's what i wanna do, yeah i know, I need suspension. I'm workin on it. What I need from you fine, upstanding people, is either a website with possible engine swaps for the 318Is. I need torque, and lots of it. I'm honestly pretty new to the engine swap idea so, if any one could point me in the right direction of the process of things I'd appreciate it. I know that with any engine swap, you're generally gonna need a new cluster, ecu, exhaust, and possibly a new tranny. If I'm missing anything, lemme know.
Now to the first thing every one is probably gonna ask... Price range. Throw it to the wind. Give me everything from the cheapest power boost, to the newest, most high tech engine set up out there, AS LONG AS YOU THINK some one with a moderate ammount of mechanical experience could do it. I have access to lifts, any tool known to man, and as a judge of my mechanical skills, I work on helocopters for the USMC.
If you guys need anything else, please, by all means, let me know. I check this forum SEVERAL times a day.
So hook it up. I have faith that this community will help me spawn a true monster.
