The finished product..

I'm not going to post the future plans, as the member is on the board so if he feels like it..he'll let you know. The car may be "ruined" as some people may see it, but i'd hold that thought until you see the end result (most likely lots of burned rubber :D )



Next in line is another beast, hopefully a nice 250rwhp when we're done :)

How much does bimmersport charge to do a tranny swap, from tiptronic to a 5 or 6spd? I wanna do that sometime. I know Dbk4World Did his @ bimmersport.

Nice work on those engine swaps.

As for the Hartge, if in fact that was an authentic Hartge H26, IMO it's a real shame what was done. Hartge Tuner cars in North America are rare as it is.

The hartge Motor was getting tired and I thought it was time for a change. After you drive a car for a while the "fun" factor starts to deminish. Besides at a point one has to realize the limitations of the motor. A full rebuild and boosting it would also of caused the car to loose it rarety anyways.

Agreed. A car like that, if it was all original is a shame to ruin with an engine swap cause cars like that you can't replace as easily!

this oil drain is probably gonna give you some trouble, you might want to consider a pump.

Cool projects guys, the mcoupe is wicked! Unfortunatly I ave to agree about the hartge, it was quite a bit more unique before, if i were the owner I would have definilty tried to find a differnt e30 to put the s52 in. Either way, very cool.

sorry keeping it.

that's not cool... you've just increased your bhp and your immediate profit potential, however, you've F'ed yourself and your car in the long run....

IMO... you should have kept it stock if it was an original Hartge

This car has been in the family from day 1 and I don't have any thought s of ever selling it, so resale value isn't part of the decision. The hartge motor is basically cam, head port & polish computer and hedders. After 280k or driving hard the motor gets tired and doesn't perform like it use to. So it was either a full rebuit including aftermarket cam, which no longer makes it "genuine" anymore or do a transplant and look towards the future for forced induction.

I was on the fence for a long time before I made the decision and I think I fell on the right side of the fence.

Screw these queers, you did what you wanted too.
If you don't like it, then keep to yourselves.

Nice car!
Good work Charlie.
