E30 M3 Turbo??
hey FI boys.....& girls of coarse,
I would like to put an idea across and would appreciate your opion,
First of all I have recently purchased a e30 m3 2.3l (86) which is currently being right hand drive converted, now before this was being done I had the privlege of driveing it around, hit some fast speeds, one night....shortly before i got $800 dollers of fines from the local copper,but thats another story,I came to the conclusion even though it is an old car and it is probably one of the quickest cars of its era,its just a lil lack luster for me,now my quistion is,is ts ethically correct to turbo my m3?? personally I think if its ur car then I think you can do what you like, however i brought the car to love and cherrish as a bmw fanatic does,and to me turboin a e30 m3 sounds like somethin a butcher would do??,but gettin around that 300-350hp is just to insanely expensive naturally aspirated!, I was under the impresion that every 14.6p of thrust doubles the hp is this true?? so running 10-12p through or even 9p would have huge increase's for relitve small cost,"i mean FI wise"
I understand that the heads from these are simply the same as the M635 with 2cy chopped off and the old cast iron block dat debued in 1961, so as far as I can see its indistructable!!,although lowering the copression from 10.5:1 to something resonable for FI could be tricky....or would you simply use big ass gaskets haha, hey any help would so appreciated
thanks guys pete
