Choice 1: S54
Choice 2: rebuild S52 and put some goodies on it like cam/hfm/software
Choice 3: use the money for track days

Money for track days. Did you ever end up getting a roll bar and race seats installed?

dcramer 03-30-2012 09:52 AM


Well the seats, yes. The roll bar was a bit of a SNAFU. Ended up ordering a bolt in from bimmerworld. Local guy wanted way too much for it

How much track experience do you have? If very little or not much, i'd say do that first before more modding.

If you think your driving is not the one holding the car back, then I'd do Cams/3.5 Maf/software assuming your suspension is all setup.

Save your money, just enjoy it, do maintenance and wait till something breaks...

I doubt he will sell you it to you for $250.

cormier 03-30-2012 01:27 PM

If you get it for 250, I'll buy it off you for like.... 275 :p

What do you want out of your car? You need more power? Want another project? Want more track / instruction time? Suspension? Maintainance?

Track days and performance driving schools.........More Mods come after you can drive the wheels off of the car!

Choice 3.

Choice 3, but rent a track for the day and invite all of us!

dcramer 03-31-2012 06:57 AM

R-Comps and go to track, your car is quicker than you think.

dcramer 03-31-2012 04:44 PM

I think winter is just too long around here. Sitting around waiting for track days reading about other people swapping engines is too enticing

I've decided to go to the track with it.
