1991 318iS M20 Swap
Haven't done anything with this car in the past 3 years, I think it's time to move on. Pictures will come soon, but here is the basic run down:


-M20B25 with 200k on it (head rebuilt at 140k, all new valves, guides, springs, rockers, etc, due to snapped timing belt)
-Lightened flywheel and fresh clutch (flywheel lightened by Randy - EMPOWERD)
-4.10 LSD
-Sparco strut brace
-black sport interior


-cracked dash (will include uncracked dash if I get asking price)
-minor rust - depends on your definintion but it's not horrible, would make a good project car. No perforation, just bubbles here and there. Definitely not showroom finish but it's a good 10 ft car.
-sunroof is screwed, the tracks jammed and broke, currently taped to keep moisture out
-has a some weird electrical gremlins, probably tied to wiring the M20 into it. Should be an easy fix (I've been told it's simply the overloader relay)
-motor runs great 90% of the time, but once in a while falls on it's face. I suspect it's the fuel pump, and purchased a replacement but parked the car before I could fix it

Would make a great track car base, and that's the only reason I've hung onto it for so long, was intending it to be a project with my brother but I don't think he's interested enough and I don't have the time anymore.

More info will be posted as I remember it. Also have a bunch of parts (Koni SA's, IE Camber plates, all new OEM rear bushings, parking brake cables, SS lines) that I can sweaten the deal with, but at this point I might just part it because I doubt I'll get anything near what I want. But if you shoot a reasonable offer and can haul it away soon, I'm all ears.

Hey tomek. I know a guy that might be interested. I'll forward this thread to him.

Pix? Your parts alone should be worth this much... GLWS I'll spread the word

In for pics. I'm about to start a project with a 4 door shell but would prefer a coupe...
