Havent thrown it on a dyno yet. Im running a stock 8psi off the 745i system so I would say with intercooler, brand new engine and turbo, a few custom other parts, I would be running around 270hp. Mind you this is all on stock electronics (533i ones). Here are some of the engine bay shots.

3.5L M30 motor with 745i turbo kit
gauges are fuel pressure and vacuum in the first pic. i have gauges both in the bay for ease of reading when in the bay.
2nd pic is the new head and valvetrain, the oil sprayer is old :lol:
3rd pic is of carbon fiber gauges on the front and rear. i have a blacked out one in the steering wheel too.custom vented hood also.
4th pic is the new white face gauges I just got. working on making a custom plate for that hole for the boost gauge. shifter is shortened like 1". all interior is not black except for the carpet....red needle gauges....looking to buy a cd player!!!!
5th pic is another garage queen shot

Interior is getting worked on. Ive got to finish installing the gauges and button her back together. Exam week starts tomorrow so no working in the garage till I have sat through all 5 of them. Then its finish build time !!

Here is a snap of the car and how it sits at ~95mm for the oilpan.

FYI, 95mm is about the size of a medium curb or speedbump. Those bumps in some shopping centers will NOT be fun.
