Project Escargogogo

Hey y'all


Sometimes in life you just want to try stuff you have never done before. So, I decided to try out some forced induction! Decided to try for more juice in the m54b30.

I was going to swap an S54 in after sourcing one from a write off for 1500$ with all accessories and cluster and whatever was needed! But buddy ended up not buying the car back from insurance. As a result, and coincidently, an opportunity came up I could not refuse.


Picked up a Vortech blower!

Everything I do to my car has a project name lol. Since the blower looks like a snail, and makes the car faster...it was named Project Escargogogo!

Right now its installed and the engine turns over. Idles smooth too, for now. It seems pretty straight forward but running into a few snags. E36 Dinan SC 30# injectors will be going in.

I cannot wait til the kinks are kinked out and I can drive my car again
