Sincere........ PM me or email me................. and we can talk.


Mike, email me and I'll fill you in................


No.......... not a V12. That would kill the car. Eventually someone is goin gto guess, but I'm not going to admit to anything. Actually, after this afternoons discussions, this thing may actually get back on track.



First thing that is going to happen is my spare S14 motor is now up for sale with all the junk, except for the AC and the tranny.......... although the bell housing will be included. Will include the wiring harness and whatever AC parts I do have left....... intake, throttle bodies, stock exhaust, etc, etc.

I think I may almost have all the bits sorted out. I just need to figure out the fuel needs and what will be needed to modify the E30 M3 system....... figure out the oil temp gauge issues and a few other things............ put some pricing to it all............ getting closer. It may be a go.......... hmmmmmmmm.

Going rate from the online forums for an S14 bell housing is $125. Make me an offer.

Hey man, I see a S14 on the 'bay with some good interest and already generating some bidding. Perhaps that an avenue you can take with this one if you really want it gone.

And lawl at the guy who send the guy criticism for "destroying a running car", check that out at the bottom.

Yeah, there's always a purist out there that has something to say. I kinda felt that way once, but not anymore. The S14 is more of a racing motor then anything.......... not good for old slow guys like me. IF you like to drive full out, it's a very rewarding powerplant. But that's not my thing............... but I still luv the lines of the car and what it looks like.

............ no turbos. That's all I'm saying for now. It will really make sense........ if/when it happens. It's nothing that's going to be ground breaking............. as it has been done............ well sort of. My way may be a bit different for my car.

Doh !!!

Nope. I'm sticking to a Beemer motor......... M10 twin turbo.




The spare S14 I have should be up for sale this weekend with pictures and explanations. One way or another, it's going......... even if this *new* project never sees the light. Worst case, I can use the money to buy my wife some jewellery and the kids some new toys....................... NOT !!!

In looking around on the internet and talking to a pile of people, they're going for $3500 USD on average. I'm going to be asking for $3000 CAN or best offer (within reason).
