My E30 project
 
I am in the process of modifying an E30 316i. So far it has a 3ltr straight 6 engine and an m- tech 2 kit.

I have a lot more to do to it including a full respray in black, lowering, 17" alpina alloys, race recliner seats, custom powerflow exhaust and much more. At the moment I don't have any pics but I'll load some up sometime when I can and when I have done something new.

By the way does anyone know what colour black is best for an E30, iam thinking black from the new Nissans ?

I got some pics for ya. Recently I found out that the engine might be a 2.8 but I ain't positive. The bodywork looks shabby but is actually in really good condition. I will keep updating the pics as I do stuff to it. Could anybody tell me what the pipes are coming out of the side of the inlet manifold. I've never seen them on other engines before.

The body kit is not properly fitted and the back bumper has just been hung on for the photo.

I thought the 3l was the M3 motor? And I'm quite sure it doesn't look like that (M50)...

hammoj28 03-21-2004 11:28 PM

Yeah when I got the car I was told that it was a 3.0 but then someone told me it was a 2.8. I don't really know what to think. Did you notice the pipes coming out of the side of the inlet manifold?? Do you know what they are?? I think it is possible that the guy who put the engine in changed the inlet manifold but i'm not sure.

That's an M20 intake manifold I think (I don't know much about bmw engines, hahaha)

Which would suggest it's a factory M20 325...
