It's around 380 hp output from the engine and 550Nm++ torque
I will remove the Motronic box an replace it with a modern ECU.

Of course I will keep the Motronic box and save all original parts. I don't like the idea of having a ECU that's isn't "intelligent" and I like the idea of having more contol over the engine.

I also found that the turbo is changed to the B7S one =) .. and that the cylinder head is the later 745i Turbo head that have better cooling channels.

Sorry for not selling it but this car is amazing! Small wook R cars that starts to mess with me seems to be standing still when I put the pedal to the floor and leave them behind ;-).

0-100km/h (0-62 mph) has been recorded by a Swedish car magazine to ~4.8s. Mine has more hp than that car had though. Remember this is a car from 1984. I'm in love
