I'm new here so pardon my ignorance on BMW's, I'm a Nissan and Mazda guy. Anyhow, has anyone turboed an E34? Did search and saw the Alpina. That is too mild for me. Me want more juice.
A custom exhaust manifold and Garrett GT40R would suffice my power needs.
So I have a few questions about the E34 as I believe this is great platform to build on but I'm debating either the E34 or a 190E 16V Benz.
3.5Liter SOHC (torque monster)
5 Speed Getrag tranny (bulletproof)
limited slip differential (what ratio again?)
Safe (dual front and side air bags)
any electrical problems? German cars are notorious for these
1. What is compression ratio of engine
2. Are there any piggy backs to bolt on to ECU? or do I have go stand alone?
(I aint paying no big bucks for a generic performance chip) I'd go Microtech, Haltech, or other stand alone and have the flexibilty when upgrading performance equipment.
Thanks in advance
