    The black one is a new chassis and rebuilt motor

    My setup is very very basic ill take some pics tonight and post them up

    but the motor was built ( the bottom end ) by Korman autowerks ,its a 2.7eta block that has forged 8.5:1 pistons with total seal rings , forged rods , forged wrist pins , 524td crank . the head is a ported "e" head with "is" valve springs . The "e" head is port matched to the "is" intake manifold . korman also supplied the metal headgasket . The turbo manifold is a custom one that i built in my shop here at home , its a log style due to space in the engine bay . I am running a T3 .63 ar 58trim @ 14 psi . The fuel is controlled by a mega squirit fuel computer I built at home ( i love it soooo much ) the injectors are 46lb turbo ford injectors one of my friends gave to me and they are being fed by a walbro 255 fuel pump ... I think thats about it.. if i left anything out due tell ... havent been on a dyno with the mega squirt yet but that will come later .. maybe this weekend

    Pic of mine....It's my daily driver and I was starting to mod it, but now I have an old Porsche that I'm going to focus my attention on:big grin:
    Eibach Prokit springs and Bilstien Sport shock and struts made a huge difference on this one though:bigthumb:

    Are you near Mt. Snow? If you are I have a buddy there with a nicely modified e30 and I'm sure he'd give you a ride.

    You can spend anywhere from $750-$5000 depending on what e30 and the condition it's in. I recomend a clean 325i from 89-91 with the plastic bumpers. You can get a decent one for 3.5k.
