Turbo Build Begins

Want someplace to tell about all the plastic parts you broke doing your interior swap? Or what about the pics of your foot after you dropped your transmission on it? Post up the epic project threads here from all the days you've spent working on your E36.

Yeah....right now, I'm just going to enjoy the car. I'm debating whether to go OBD I and get it customed tuned down at TRM or go back to OBD II and just wait for a possible tune through ICS....not sure what I want to do.

ohh. myyy. gawwd! STill on TRM base tune and the car is a beast. Everything is pretty much sorted out hardware wise. Now I just need exhaust and some dyno time and I can get this thing retuned FINALLy and maybe 20lbs? Bret says it would take it with the giant T4 and low cylinder pressures. Hmm Is there such a thing as too much power? I'm almost content with what it does now (can't believe I said that)

LOL no pics till the bumper is back on. Thats like asking for topless pics. I will definitely post HD vid of dyno. It will be awhile though. The M3 gets attention in bursts with month between each!

Well I added some Ground control rear camber arms to help with the tire wear, then took the car to 4ngiefest and tail of the dragon afterward. The car is just touching 16lbs of boost and I am still on the same TRM tune. I actually met Bret in person at 4ngiefest, cool guy and heard about what he and his new shop are getting into. He was amused and impressed with my jerry rigged blow through Porsche MAF job.
I got a bad boost leak on the way to pick up Alex (bmwmaniac) car at TRM. Got to check out TRM shop and talk to the guys there, super cool dudes. They even helped me track my boost leak to my damn goose neck nipple under the intake manifold for free! I told them to go ream on their creation and they obliged. It ran like a top on the tail of the dragon and I was pleasantly surprised with power delivery on such tight cornering!
Other than suspension the only thing that I should really do is have the car dyno tuned, and throw some larger injectors on. Otherwise it's the perfect street warrior.
The E30 has been zapping my resources lately so the M3 will have to wait a little bit and share.

Well I have officially UN-Turbo'd the M3 lol It was fun but my Spec E30 build made me realize it was time to take it back to stock. I also purchased an 86 190d 5 speed for racking up miles. So Back to stock it goes, with maybe some billies and bigger sways.



Here is the E30 build thread if your interested..
