Finally our monster is let loose! The turbo E36 M3 some of you saw in our shop is rolling on the streets. I have only one word for this car...WOW! The kit totally transformed the car into something out of this world, but maintains the stock BMW feel when driving normally. We also added H&R suspension with Turner Motorsport and UUC drivetrain components to help put the power down, and sustain the rigorous amount of force being put through the driveline. We totally recommend this kit to anyone looking for some serious power, and I'm sure the owner himself would tell you the same thing.

Heres some pics I snapped through the build..

The beginning:

Getting ready for the new .140" MLS headgasket:

The turbo mounted in place (note: oil AND water cooled)

UUC 16.9LB Steel LTW flywheel and Multipuck ceramic clutch:

Intercooler mounted (kit includes new aux fan - PnP!, new remounted washerfluid tank, best part of all perfect fitment all around):

Wastegate pipe and downpipe mounted (those can mount to stock exhaust):

The best part but saddest (for me), she's ready to go back home:

Dyno sheets will come soon guys....the owner is enjoying himself on 'the ring' probably right about now...lucky SOB.

Nice work Tripod, now how much will it cost me for one of those kit (& installation)? What's the estimated power? Lets see some numbers to back that baby up!

was software provided for it already with the kit ?

what turbo and manifold is it running? by the looks of things that waste gate re-circ is going to creep because of the 90 degree angle, when recirculated back into the exhaust.

other than that nice work.

The kit uses a Garret T3/T4 60-1 turbo, although some people upgrade to a GT35R. Also the manifold is a cast manifold.


The kit costs around ~$8g USD + customs/duty/taxes...as far as install goes come by and we can work something out. The e46 kit is even more impressive! *rockout*


The wastegate has a 8.5lb spring right now, but he's using the AEM Tru Boost controller so he can run different settings (depending on your spring). The software is provided with the kit as well. I think we should swap it out for a 13.5lb spring :D
