Yes that is the Ravaglias.
This one is a Europameister so 148 were produced!
They Ravaglia you are talking about are based on the Evo 2 E30.
This one is more or less a normal M3 signed by him and with some extra leather thrown in.
Still pretty rare though i think. In fact i think they are the second rarest.

Ah. Yes, the second rarest-- but really just an M3 with a plaque. Not that there's anything wrong with that, heh. The repaint makes more sense now. (I was thinking-- "Why would you repaint a Ltd. edition car that only came in one colour a different colour!?")

Turner Motorsport seems to have the engine parts you are looking for, including a full 2.5 Stroker kit .

Good luck with your project

But i was hoping in tracing an Evo Sport interior for reasonable money.

if you don't go ahead with the engine rebuild of the S14, can I recommend doing a S50B32 swap instead of the S52 swap, it's something I wanted to do years ago but decided to put money in real estate instead, E30 M3 with S50B32 Mmmmmmmm

Same here after driving a friends E30 m3 with S52 and supercharged.
But i think this one is too rare not to keep it stock(or almost stock)

Car had its roadtest today by the previous owner so is 100% legal.
I will pick it up on Wednesday as i wont be home till then.
Ordered some parts (tensioner, shift and handbrake gaiters). Looking for options on the interior as i either need to reupholster or replace.
I am more inclined to Recaro SR´s.

FWIW, I DD my Recaro Speeds and am quite happy with them. They may be on the small side for anybody 200lbs+.

That would be me then.....lol
But it should be ok! I am not planning any long trips!
How much did they cost you and do you know any reasonably priced place to get them?
Are replicas any good?

Ebay seems to be cheapest - lots of JDM Integra Type R Recaro SRDs. I got mine on craigslist Vancouver. Note that shipping from Van to Saskatoon on Greyhound was $136 with $900 insurance, which I feel is decent.

Expect $1k for 2 for good condition.

Watch out for reps that claim to be authentic. Get a pic of the serial number on the bottom of the seats. Generally, reps are OK but not near as durable or high quality. Corbeaus would be worth looking at for a guy with a budget.

I don't remember any good vendors off the top of my head.

I thought about Corbeaus too. Shipping though isnt an issue for me as i get them shipped from my work with 50% discount.
It may be better to get some grey leather Corbeaus at the end of the day as they come with the subframes and i dont want to cut up the original ones as i intent to keep the car close to stock or at least be able to easily make it close to stock when i need to, dur to its collectability.
Will see!
I am also debating what wheels to get.
BBS LM, RC, RS........
should i go for the real deal or replicas?
So many things to decide on....lol
