are you running ITB's? also, is that an oil cooler in front of the radiator? looks amazing; waiting on the dyno crushing runs :D

Those are the runners for an intake manifold...not ITB's...the oil cooler is between the radiator and intercooler.

Thanks Brent...I'm planning on running 15-18 psi for daily driving and about 20-25 for the track...hopfully the motor doesn't blow before the end of this summer...:D

how wide are your rims/tires man waleed? will you be able to hookup at all...lol beacaus i forsee alot of spinning!

i think 20-25 psi will make a around 400-425 whp, right? :eek:

14 inch slicks on bottle caps..*rockout*
For daily driving I'll be running 17 inch tires with a softer side wall, that way I have a less chance of breaking drivshafts.

Looking like a gorgeous rebuild - I love it when people take the time to make the parts look as good as they work, internals included.

What size turbo is that? Did you fabricate the turbo header? Looks good...

Yeah those are just IM runners not ITB's... how are you going to setup the plenum, I see you have the stacks in there or at least that's how it looks...

The IC looks a little, beat, one or two bent fins. :) How is the inlet/outlet config setup I can see it's probably facing the engine - you gonna run the pipes under the rad support?

I love seeing the progress of a car - any car - being assembled and created. Good work. :D

Turbo is a WH1C with an 18cm2 housing from an HX35. Manifold was made by buddy.
The plenum is gonna be a round 4 inch tube, I'm keeping the design simple for the first mani.
I'll post some pics of the IC when its done...and for 120 bucks I can't complaint about a few bent fins.:)

great work keep it up...by the way thnx 4 the advice....

They will take boost. With the ETA bottom end, it lowers the compression. Low compression + Turbo = happy engine.

The reliability and durability of the setup will depend on proper tunning. As long as the motor is tunned right this setup should be very reliable for about 15-18 psi. That much boost with proper setup will give you about 350-400 wheel horse power, which is really good considering that its only a single cam 12 valve motor and all the parts are OEM.

The only downside to that is, it is more likely to suffer from engine failure in a mishap.

true a good tune is 60% of engines preformance & longitivity...
as i read the e30 stock rods of M20b25 r forged...also the pistons r pretty
tough made... by next month i wont to rebuild my motor(stock rebuild,MLS hg, and head bolts...mainly)...
so anxiuosly waiting to see how ur setup goes....
what clutch ur using?

hey -90E30i-would u refer me to some one around TO area for Msquirt installation.i live in windsor but its worth the drive ...sorry if iam out of the main topic here...and where did u buy all engine internals from for the rebuild...

Can you post your impressions of the clutch when you drive it. I think Im gonna go with a clutchnet 6 puck (e36 though) for my build when this m5 clutch takes a dump.

The E30 and E36 disc is the same, I mean same size, part # and all.

I made the manifold I had on my twinturbo setup. The one I have right now was made by a friend who is a really good fabricator and does manifolds for Hondas mostly. but he has made a jig for the M20 manifold, so if you are interested let me know, I'll pass you his info.
The runners are 1.25 inch 304ss pipe.

Of course the M50 is a better motor for making power. The reason I turboed the M20 is because I didn't want to do a swap.

Alot of people are having a hard time with the oil feed system. I'll post in detail as to what I did. here goes..

first off you need a Metric to Pipe fitting to go on to the block where the oil pressure switch is.

http://img522.imageshack.us/img522/9424/imageimgqg7.jpg (http://imageshack.us)

secondly you'll need a tee to for the feed line and oil pressure switch and like you said, there is not alot of room for a fitting so what I did is I grinded off part of the fitting and tapped it with a metric tap for the oil pressure switch.

Tee in orignal form.

http://img513.imageshack.us/img513/5972/28245np4.jpg (http://imageshack.us)

Where you need to grind.

http://img513.imageshack.us/img513/5179/modly6.jpg (http://imageshack.us)

Next you'll need a straight Pipe to AN fitting, the pipe end will thread onto the tee and the AN side will be used for the feed line itself.

http://img522.imageshack.us/img522/1778/1111ow9.jpg (http://imageshack.us)

All of these fitting should be available thro a hydrolic shop in brass or steel, I used steel fittings for my setup. best thing to is take the info to the shop with the oil pressure switch and they will be able to help you out...once you get all the fittings figured out, you'll need to measure the length of the feed line and get them to custom make you a feed line from high pressure oil line.

http://img513.imageshack.us/img513/9982/picture20011qd4.jpg (http://imageshack.us)

This is the only picture I have of the oil lines...you can't really see the oil feed setup but I'll give you an idea

won't the oil pressure switch bottom out in the tee now? you must only have like 2 threads after tapping it?

actually there more then enough thread on the fitting, and the switch ends up right in the middle of the fitting, doesn't bottom out.

90E30i
10-21-2007, 12:48 PM
I would love to do a full Mtec2 but the problem is that I'd have to hack up the front to get some air to the intercooler. On any car, the stance and the wheels make or break the car, and with the Mtec2 you need that slammed look with deep dish wheels to get it right, which looks great but my car is meant to be beaten on and I'm not sure about the functionality of a car that is scraping the ground with wheels sticking out of the fenders.

But it sure as hell is sexy...*love*

Well after a 20 hour day of working on the car, finished everything up and tried to start the
car but with no luck.

First there was no signal going to the main relay so the MS was not getting powered. I think the signal wire from the ignition switch to the main relay goes throu the stock ECU, but I could be wrong, have to check the wiring diagram for that.

Anyways I bypassed the main relay and powerd the MS and I got power the fuel pump and I got spark but there's no injector paulse.

I have to resolve that issue and hopfully it will get going. BTW I had the MS tested in a friend's car just to make sure if works and it was good, drove the car with my MS for a day and there were no issues.

Any help would be great. thanks in advance.
