Hi guys, I've always loved e30's and had always planned to get one. Recently I bought myself an 84 318i with very minimal rust as a project car. A few weeks and a bunch of research later I picked up a 1jz gte motor, tranny, ecu, and harness to be swapped in over the winter.
Here is a list of everything that will be going in over the winter:
-1jz gte stock tt motor
-r154 5 speed transmission
-3.73 lsd differential
-28x12x3 front mount intercooler
-Greddy rs BOV and turbo timer
-custom 3" downpipe and exhaust
-16gal. fuel cell
-e34 brake booster
After all that is done I plan to tackle the suspension and brakes.
Anyways, enough with me talking. on to the pictures
This is the way it looked when I bought it:
Then we moved it out to the shop and the work began:
