Very interesting....but there's no tuning included Hate to sound like a big plug but If someone bought this for a e36 + my turbo chip tune I have FS you would have a running, proper turbo kit for peanuts...hmmm

forwarding this to some friends!

You and me both


...kind of

I saw it last night, wonder what shape the turbo itself is in.

FYI it sells BNIB from the manufacture for $900.

It's a Godspeed turbo.. So Ebay...

Everything else looks alright. if you put a quality wastegate and a quality turbo on it, you'd be set.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-E36-E46-...83e11a&vxp=mtr

But realistically, it's cheaper new.

I'm gonna say it's still worth it....that manifold is not the godspeed but the SPA cast manifold...$500-$600 alone on ebay...and I think it includes an complete 3" exhaust...getting one made is 500-1000 alone, so there's already mad savings there...

Yeah, I guess if you factor in shipping. But I would swap out the turbo.. Or the wastegate at the very least.

your typical 3" mandrel bent turbo exhaust complete with muffler/res, cat, o2 bungs, flanges, wastegate tie-in can easily top 1k, the biggest factor is if it being done in SS versus mild steel, then the cost goes down....

Here's a 2.5" SS exhaust system I got done for $600 recently. It wouldn't have costed much more to do a 3" but I don't need anything more than 2.5" for this car. The picture is a shitty cell pic, but the shop did a really nice job with the fit and finish...

$600 including all the materials I see in that pic? or just the labor?

also that's not mandrel bent piping from what I can see... just saying.
