Turbo is in with 4" exhaust. Photos.

Here are the photos of my turbo install and suspension.

Yes, that is a 4" exhaust. I have yet to install the SMT6 and additional injector. Currently the car is runing 12psi and really pushes you into the seat, but 15psi is where it will be tuned to. :evil:

Let me know what you think.

The wheels are 19". Love them or hate them, it's all good. lol

19" wheels are too big for an E30! Now why do you need a 4" exhaust? I'm shure a 4" down pipe and a 3" exhaust would have been enough.

That is a matter of opinion. I had 18's and I felt they were too small for an e30. lol

Why not 4"? Turbos love big exhausts.

It is loud.. but not anywhere near as loud as the open downpipe i ran.

It's about as loud as my old B&B Triflow at idle and even quieter at cruise. But when you floor it.. it is VERY loud, especially with the open dump tube.

Do you have any more pics of the car so I can see the 19s better? I saw an e30 M3 with 19s and it looked really good but they have the wide body.

It is not an e. There are two rad designs for the m20. One for the 84-87, and one for 88+

If we ran 12psi on an E I think we would be picking up pieces of the bottom end. lol

Thanks everyone! I'll post more pictures later.

It not a e felix, you are talking out of your ass.

By your logic, every 87 and older 325i is actually a e. Don't be a dumbass. All early m20 e30's use the same radiator. 88+ use a different one for the redesigned cooling system.
