Default another one??? E30 time

well i basically just fell into this car, picked it up from a ex boss. it was his daughters car and was quite neglected basically. had a burnt exhaust valve on cylinder #5 and was a automagic. few things have changed but many more will in the future.


1990 BMW 325i
m20 2.5litre inline 6

the day i got it home, kinda ugly isn't it?



Drivetrain:
5spd swap with G260
Custom dual exhaust to a Magnaflow muffler

Exterior:
iS front lip
Smoked front turn signals
Antenna delete

H&R Sport Springs

Interior:
Mtech 1 steering wheel
Factory Sport Seats
Dual IPod/Bluetooth stereo

Honestly, when was the last time you did a diesel swap versus all the other stuff you tend to do.

Several powerplants are available that would drop right in. Sleep on it.

very true, i have thought about it since they did offer a diesel for this year. but then i would have to slap a GT35R on it and go full retard with it.

i was thinking of a SR20 swap or since i have a complete chevy 350 and trans sitting in my garage i could use that and build a track car with it but as it sits now im going to pull the head next weekend to fix the burnt valve then i will also port the head and install a cam with adjustable cam gear.
