So... any chance you'll track it once it's done? I'd love to have a little E30 street car battle on track Even though I know I'd lose LOL

Haha, I definitely want to take it on the track at some point. Mainly just out of curiosity to see how it feels compared to the racecar. Would be fun to have an e30 streetcar showdown!

Ontario 1500 is street legal, licensed and insured cars unfortunately. You can't even have a support truck, even if you don't tow the car.

This car is very street legal. It was my DD last summer and will be this summer again! If I were to do 1500 with this car, I'd throw a hitch on it and build a trailer to lug everything around. Would be one hell of a fun week.

LOL serious? That's awesome dude! I guess mine is technically still plated, but my cop buddy told me to take the plates off since even if it's on a trailer, having plates on it is your declaration of intent to drive it on the road.

Been really slacking with this car. Just too busy with the new chumpcar build, but I was able to get a few things done this week.

I ended up modifying 2 e46 steering shafts to make 1 slim shaft that will help free up some space. The stock steering shaft is too bulky and doesn't leave much room to run the headers down.

The e46 shafts are 3 pieces that fit one inside the other, so I chopped them up and fit them to work with the e30. (Thanks to JohnnyD for the writeup!!)





Then welded, and threw a few bolts through it for good measure



With that, the engine bay was ready for the final fitment

Haven't updated this in a while, but the car is finally on the road.


Motor in, working on wiring



Had Ottawa driveshaft build me a custom piece by shortening the stock driveshaft and cutting the flange off the 540 shaft and welding it on to mine.



Picked up a bunch of exhaust stuff from Mike at No Limits last week.



I went with a dual 2.5 straight back to the muffler. Considered adding an X but figured i'd give it a shot without it. It wouldn't be too hard to add it after if need be. On the stock system, the X is pretty much right behind the muffler, and I figured since the magnaflow is a 'true X' design, it should be fine.





Painted with some high temp stuff

Dropped her down and started buttoning up the rest of it











I have over 350km on it now. The power is awesome, but the clutch slips a bit. Something I suspect since the donor had no 1st or 2nd gear, so he was slipping it in 3rd to get around. It looked good though when i pulled it out, So I wanted to see if I could get away with it. Going to leave it for now though, still very driveable. A few other small kinks to work out, and mostly need to clean it up, but I'm going to take a break from it for a bit, enjoy it, and come back to it later.

Small update on this. ended up buying a JB Racing lightweight flywheel (about 15lbs lighter than stock) and a Clutchmaster stage 3 clutch. Got it installed a few weeks ago and have been breaking it in, as well as working out a few glitches with the car. Everything seems to be working well now. Pulls hard.





Got a decent sound clip. I'd like to get one under load though, that's when it sounds best.
