Hi Everyone

Just wanted to share a wonderful experience i had recently...completely restoring an e30 was a dream from day 1...my first car was an 87 325 from 06 and i'm on my 5th so far and plan on keeping this 1 much longer. A fellow member from the forum gave me the idea and following it was the best thing so far on car scene...working on fixing the pics sizes should be on later

Good stuff. You only showed a picture of the motor with the head off, was the whole motor rebuilt or just the head? Did you put a different cam in it? Any plans for software? Also what muffler is that? It looks like two separate mufflers placed side by side.

God that spoiler and muffler(s) look silly. Do people really think things like that are good?

few more upgrades

Had a chance and some time off to do few things on car last weekend...just 1 thing left so far(lil bodywork on rear bumper before before putting M-Tech I bumper). Pair of Fog lights and the couple pieces to protect them is on sale
$70 for fog lights and $30 for protectors and i believe they fit the late 80's model...don't fit mine.
So for the work done on engine here what i got:
lEngine specs:
M20 Super ETA/2.5L combination
Completely rebuilt
oversize piston rings/filed to specific bore with piston
Fully ported/polished cylinder/shaved head
Valve job/3 angle recessed/shimmed valve springs/oversize accentrics
port matched intake manifold/ported throttle body
19lbs injectors
DINAN Performance chip
stainless steel headers/custom 1 piece 2.5" free flowing exhaust/no catalytic conv.
4.10:1 LSD rear diff.
for suspension nothing crazy..bilstein in the back pretty good stock for the front(will upgrade the front soon and rims as well).
Sorry guyz about the pics sizes just not good at it like others on here.
