How long did this build take? That engine looks killer and probably scares most people because the car looks stock. Gotta love a sleeper! Pull up to a punk in a honda and just leave him some tread marks lol.

I'd say it probably took about a year from start to finish. However, I was only working on this a few weekends a month. It wasn't a full-time project.

I've just installed a 3.25:1 LSD and I finally have traction! It's a thing of beauty...

Very nice. Also that time frame doesn't seem to long if you only did some weekend jobs to her. Amazing custom fab. work though.

That Hofset turbo is for a cummins engine? I was looking it up on ebay ect.. and it always says cummins. I might get some parts gathered but the turbo I don't want to mess it up.

Also, did you end up getting some new paint and tires and make her look all pretty? If so it would be nice to see the "final" result!

Yes, Holset turbos are used on Cummins diesels. There's a lot more discussion and implementation available at e30tech.com.

I've got some new tires to replace the balding ones, but I'm still looking for something a little better. And new paint is over-rated

Correct, the diff is from something like this... Not sure exactly what it came off, though.

I just got some Dunlop Direzza Z1 Stars in 215/45R17. They're not horribly expensive (they're not cheap though) and took them to the local track yesterday. They are phenomenal.

I got a turbo out of a Mazdaspeed 3 i'm thinking about doin something similar, the turbo was designed to run 1 Bar... The work you put in is awesome! are you using 1 bar of boost? Did you have any problems with the MegaSquirt? Was it easy enough to configure?

If you want tires buy em off Tire Rack and get them installed in Buffalo their dirt cheap! 114 ea for Direzza Z1 Star Spec... bring a girl along and say she went shopping, usually works at the boarder..

I think that turbo will be too small for an M20. I'm no expert, but that's my gut feeling.
Yes, I'm running about 1 bar. Megasquirt takes a bit to set up and configure, but it's fairly straight forward once you're running. Just need to be careful while tuning so you don't damage the engine. Pay attention to your gauges!

I actually get quite a bit of stuff shipped to the boarder. I'm well versed with that technique

Hi Could you tell me if the LSD was a direct bolt on or you had to modify

Thanks
Paul

I bought an entire differential out of an E28, so it was more or less a direct bolt on. You will want to have an E30 differential handy so that you can swap the back cover and also the stub shafts into the new one.
