E21 M20 thanks to bimmersport
My car is alive again! No more more m10, that barely turned on, thanks to Charlie at bimmersport. He just finshed installing an m20 in my e21, the car runs and sounds incredible!! He did a bunch of custom work to make everything fit, and didn't miss a single detail. Im just waiting for my turbo kit to come in right now *uzi* ...

I cant be more thankful for everything you've done Charlie! I really appreciate it. I just have to say Bimmersport is the only place to bring your bmw.. exceptional and fast work. Thanks again. As for pictures i will post them up during this week.

it'll actually be called a 325i...cause it was a 320i and it has an engine from a 325is...:cool:

paul christians 01-23-2007 10:11 PM

^^^yes but they had 323 aswell...It was a euro trim..

^^ curious.. did bimmersport box up or beef up the front end framings prior to the swap to compensate for the addition hp/torque to prevent frame warpage?

Rommel, BMW installed M20's in E21's from the factory without additional reinforcements, it will be just fine. Sure there is going to be some body flex, but every older car has flex, nothing can be done except boxing in the towers and frame rails, basically a full cage for it.

D, glad you like the car, sounds awesome, must pull like hell!! Now all you need is a LSD :D

^^ thanks Tomek for the insight. Have fun with the E21!
