What are those engines out of? I'm not good on the engine codes yet LOL My friend has a wrecked 528 with a 3.5L (i think), will that bolt in? or will I have to do lots of mods?
I do use this car as a daily driver too. So I don't want to make it a FULL racer .... YET lol
However, I was thinking about a turbo or an electric supercharger just for a little extra when I need it. http://www.electricsupercharger.com/
This looks kind of cool and not too expensive.
I am planning on doing some more bolt on's like a flywheel and a chip. I was waiting until I need a clutch before I do the flywheel (and the way I drive that wont be too long).
On the Full racer... I have a 85 e30 318. I have everything to build it. I am going to do up the block, knife edge & balance the crank, polish the rods, extrude hone the head and intake and put a while cam in it. I AM going to turbo charge that one. I want some serious rev's out of it. Due to the size of the engine, even with the turbo it will still put me in a class where I can be competitive. But I haven't started on that project yet. So it may become a 87 325e LOL
Also.. On the Dinan chips. I haven't read much on them. I know the BMP one give's 24hp and 18ft of torque. On their test on a 87 325e automatic, the 0-80mph time was reduced by 4 seconds. With my gear changes and being a stick... I think it would spank more lightly modified 325i's....? Not sure though.
Please let me know any thoughts you have on that..
