V8's are the way forward

Hello,

I'm from the UK and as my user name suggests I own a 1998 340i, which I finished building about a year ago...

It has the 4.4ltr from a 1997 740i and the gearbox from a E34 530i V8....

Sounds cool, goes very well and has now covered 10000 miles since completed...

Here are a couple of vid's, first start up and then a few months later on the dyno...

Hello,

I live in a little place just out side woodbridge in suffolk. Thanks for the compliment, I am very pleased with car, I have recently had it mapped and she makes 341bhp@6200rpm and 330lb/ft@4800....... Just have to decide whats next for her, I think she could handle around 400ish so could fit E39 M5 S62 engine or supercharge the one I have.......... Hmmm.

Steve.

Hi,

No real drone at all, in fact between 80 and 100 mph on light throttle you can hardly hear her at all, but my mate reckons it sounds like a super car when I over take him....!!!!

It has 4-2-1 mild steel manifolds, in to twin 2.5" stainless exhaust with an X-pipe and finally into a scorpion M3 rear box..........
