LS3-Powered BMW E30 M3 is Sacrilegious and Stunning: 2011 SEMA Show

Is it a crime or just a really good idea? One thing is for sure, this SEMA Show car is an excellently executed project.

On display at the Heatshield Products booth and built by Kevin Byrd, this E30 BMW M3 has its hood off for a reason. Rather than the 2.3-liter 4-cylinder that it came with from the factory, filling up ever inch of the engine bay is a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 from General Motors. With custom headers and a Magnaflow exhaust it delivers a claimed dyno number of 480-hp.

As a complete project the car features a 2-inch widebody and plenty of added bracing. And let's not forget a lowered suspension and some perfectly suitable 18-inch BBS CH wheels. The total curb weight is pegged at 2900 lbs.
