RMP's E90 Race Car Testing Session - Videos

Went over to RMP Motors over the weekend to take delivery of my new motor and saw the built E90 track cars in action. Here are the videos which I managed to take with my crappy iPhone:

Drule**** The sound is unbelievable! That car looks untouchable!

On a side note Kevin... Taking delivery on your new motor? What happened to your other S54? Not running well? What did you do with it?

My oil cooler hit a patch of light snow last year and broke off - oil escaped before I noticed the red oil light to pull over . Around 6-8 months later my engine started ticking and here we are now replacing the motor (rebuild cost was pretty much the same thing if not more so I decided to get a fresh motor from 04 M3 with 62,xxx KMs and sell my motor to someone who wants to do a engine build project.

Ahhh beautiful! good idea! at least you got a clean motor now!

What should I expect to pay for a clean S54 motor similar to yours and install on an E46 ZHP if you don't mind me asking?

From what I saw, a clean low mileage S54 goes for $4000-$4500 with warranty and all the documents. If you are looking to get one, PM me and I can help you out. And as for the install, it really depends on what you need done so i would contact Rocco on that directly.

Nice, just the person I was looking for. I need a low mileage ( like less than 80k) S54 with the recall done.
