It is a 97 M3 engine with 120km

perfect running condition..
Tuner shorty headers
Turner HFM
Turner software
Turner UDP
AA track pipe with O2 sims
Dinan cat back exhaust

just dynoed at 230 hp 241 tq on a dynojet in 4th gear...

would perfer to sell as a package...

any interest out there guys????

I can help with install, engine can be heard running in the car..

price would be dependent on goodies (exhaust etc.)

**bump for a great seller - bought a few items from him over the years **

11-14-2006, 09:07 PM
thanks Sanj!!

the euro deal is a go!! so this engine will become available in the near future!!

any interest out there???

11-14-2006, 09:13 PM
What would it take for this to go into an E30?

11-14-2006, 09:18 PM
dont have the answer for that...

but I'm sure someone does.... I think RMP motors is familiar with that swap...

I know it can be done I just dont know what is needed to complete the swap...

11-14-2006, 09:21 PM
how hard would it be to get it in e36, and rougly how much do you want for it?

11-14-2006, 09:50 PM
Are you willing to part with the Dinan cat-back? and how much would you want for it? very interested.

11-14-2006, 09:53 PM
interested.... would it go in 93 E36 320i..... and i would need everything which is needed to do the swap..... and how much does it take to swap.??? i would offer.. $3000..... does it make any sense??? let me know

11-15-2006, 02:01 AM
pm me with the price for everything please..


11-15-2006, 07:23 AM
I'm interested in everything.

Hit me up with a price. If you wanna chop the AA Trackpipe + Dinan exhaust i'm down for that as well.

11-15-2006, 09:27 AM
ok guys looks like there is some interest so I will provide some more info here...

All of the upgrades except the AA track pipe and Dinan cat back were jsut performed in Sept 06, the AA track pipe was installed in May 06, the Dinan was installed early 05...

the cost for these items was over 4900 cdn not including taxes and shipping or labour...

I also need to say that the car is a dedicated track car so these components have seen very limited miles....

I am asking 6500.00 obo for ...

wiring harness (engine)
ECU with Turner Shark reflash
HFM, injectors, UDP
Cold Air intake
Turner headers
AA track pipe with O2 simulators
Dinan cat back
M3 rad

I would like to sell this as a complete package rather than part it out at this time..

I am open to offers! I also have receipts for the parts (except the Dinan)

Feel free to contact me at


11-15-2006, 09:43 AM
Turner headers
AA track pipe with O2 simulators
Dinan cat back

How much for those 3 :)

11-15-2006, 09:48 AM
at this point I would like to try and sell the package complete... if this doesn't happen then I will part out the bits and pieces....

11-15-2006, 09:50 AM
i take it you are not interesting in everything anymore??

is my asking price out of line???

I am open to reasonable offers....

11-15-2006, 10:48 AM
I'm interested in the Dinan cat-back(as i mentioned earlier) if you decide to part :)

got torque?

Hey Kirk

I'm taking a guess here, but-
Is it safe to say that Ashley M. will be going MUCH faster in the CASC Regionals next year? GT-A maybe?

Just curious....I ran against her this year.

11-15-2006, 12:18 PM
right now the plan is for Ashley to run in TGTC... and possibly some sprints and yes this new powerplant will bump her up to GTA!!!

what car were you running??

got torque?
11-15-2006, 12:36 PM
I ran the red E30, #255.

Had some great battles with Ashley this season.

Too bad she had a bad end to her first season. I followed her into T1 at Mosport after that shitbox Pontiac oiled the entire track- I'm surprised I didn't end up in the gravel trap with her. I missed her by inches.

I guess I better get some more horsepower if I want to run with Ashley next year....a Euro E36 is a weapon....

Turner headers

Dinan cat back

How much for those 3 :)

Joe! The Dinan sounds alot better on the e36 than e46 imo! I love that exhaust running in the e36! Get it.. no rasp like the e46 when running high flow cats or no cats.

thanks jason.... not parting out at this time...

11-16-2006, 05:15 PM
If you do part, keep my # handy Im currently building a 3.2L
Thanks. Jason

11-16-2006, 05:30 PM
building a 3.2L .... as in head work , valves, compression bump, cams, etc.??

I would be curious to see your results... I was debating building this engine (bigger valves, cams, comp. bump and some head work) but decided to go the Euro route.... not sure if it is the right choice or not???

time will tell along with the dyno results....

good to know, thanks! I'll probably be catless :D If it isnt this one then i'll be getting the AA, price is also a factor.

spencerk: You might be better off parting it out. I dont think as many people would be interested in the package deal for the kind of $ you're asking (not saying it isnt worth it).

11-17-2006, 09:39 AM
thanks notjoe...

price reduction $5500.00 obo

I was just hoping to find someone to take everything, I will give it a week or so and see what happens....

another reason I was trying to sell together is that the CAI, injectors, HFM all work together with the Shark ECU reflash which will only work with the ECU that will be provided with this engine...

the parts will still work if I sell separately but the buyer will need to get a Shark from Turner Motorsports or a custom tune....(think there might be a member on here that can do it... MarkD??)

I can also help with install as we have a fully equiped shop....

Check your pm.

11-17-2006, 04:42 PM
engine is sold...

the extras will be available soon...

I will post up prices when the motor is out of the car and the parts are on the floor ready to go!!!

this should happen early next week...

please be patient... :)
