    Here is my 89 M3, a heavily prepared race car with around 275 hp out of it's 2.5L 4-banger.

    Complete engine rebuild, Ross pistons, Evo crank, Schrick cams, etc etc etc
    Turner Motorsports JStock suspension system
    225/40ZR18 Toyo RA-1s on M Parallels
    carbon fiber body components
    roll cage, race seats and harnesses
    soon to be gutted JL/Alumapro stereo and interior for maximum lightness :big grin:

    Too much to list, let's just say I have fun beating up on 911 Porsches at the track days

    Heavily prepped Race car? I don't see to many race cars with Game systems and tv's in them. Looks good tho. I'd take it in a heart beat.

    Thanks for all the compliments guys!

    You're right about that for sure. The system is from my Hot Import Nights days when you lost a ton of points for not having a damn TV lol.

    At one point I was going to install a system to display different sensor-based readouts on the TV, like oil pressure, fuel level, engine temp etc. It turned out to be too pricey so I shelved it.

    I just stripped the entire stereo out of it the other day, next comes the carpet and everything else that adds unnecessary weight.

    I am taking it to the next level now that I rarely drive it on the street, if I don't need it during a lap of Road America then it won't be on the car!

    17k e30 M3 engine, you don't want to know how much is in the rest of it!

    Havent got any newer pics, havent done anything to the car in a bit. Going to strip my interior this week to get ready for the new seats, carpet plus the roof antenna, also going to put the battery in the boot. Turbo install comes next, most of it is sitting patiently in the corner :)
