    Thumbs up Fire Orange HPF STG 2 Build in Bahrain (HPFNAWAF's M3 from KUWAIT)

    Hello Guys n Gals

    In this thread we will be detailing the build of BB member HPFNAWAF’s M3 E46. I would like to thank Sticky for allowing me to post up some of the work we do here in Bahrain. I hope this thread will help BB members out somehow, any questions please feel free to ask and I'll try my best to answer them J

    Nawaf contacted me about 3 years ago when he first purchased his second E46 M3 (the EB VF STG 2) from and American customer of mine living in Kuwait. The car had a poorly installed VF STG 2 by a shop in KWT and that is why Nawaf called me as the previous owner recommended us. Nawaf decided to send the car to Bahrain in order for me to work on it. We removed and reinstalled the SC kit and eliminated all leaks, the car was a big mess wiring wise and leaks all over the place and exposed wires etc. Nawaf was so happy when he saw the car and we have been brothers since then J

    After a few months Nawaf came across a chance to buy an HPF STG 2 kit and sent his Estoril Blue M3 to me to install the kit. It was our first experience with HPF and will never be the last as it was a great one! After the car was up and running good someone in KWT messed up a clutch install on Nawaf’s car and him being busy he couldn’t send the car to Bahrain. The car lay dormant for a few months after this. Well he came across a chance to buy a clean 02 US spec 6MT M3 and that’s where this new story/project starts.
    We discussed the newly acquired 6MT M3 and as Nawafs Brother wanted to buy his Estoril Blue ZCP M3 off of him we were asked to return the EB M3 to stock and to remove the HPF kit and store it for the M3 6MT. We also decided we will upgrade some components on the kit as this was a good time. So we placed an order with HPF to add some service parts and upgrades to the current STG 2 kit.

    Here is the list:
    Auveco Fasteners - M10x1.25, 42mm zinc stud (Min qty=10)
    BMW (01-06) M3 OEM Axles - (E46) Rear Rubber Mounts (subframe bushings)
    BMW (01-05) M3 Manifold to Head Exhaust Gaskets - order 6 for a set
    BMW (01-06) M3 Exhaust Gaskets - Midpipe Gasket 3-bolt
    BMW (02-05) M3 Head Studs - 42mm - Fully Threaded
    Denso (01-06) M3 Iridium Spark Plugs - IXU27
    Generic T-Bolt Hose Clamps - 3.5 inch ID
    Generic Nuts - M10x1.25 Hex flange nut, zinc plated (Turbo Mounting Nut)
    HPF (01-06) M3 E46 M3 Carbon Fiber Engine Covers - clear coating - glossy finish
    HPF (01-06) M3 DME Engine Covers - Assembled DME Cover
    HPF (01-06) M3 Steed Speed Manifold Gaskets Exhaust Gaskets - Exhaust Port Gasket, copper, 6 per kit (.048" thickness, 1.770" OD)
    HPF (01-06) M3 E46 M3 Titanium Exhaust Systems
    HPF (01-06) M3 E46 M3 Walbro In Tank Fuel Pump Install Kit
    HPF Couplers with HPF Logo Intercooler Hoses - 90deg - 3" to 2.5" – Black
    HPF (01-06) M3 Intercooler Piping - Turbo Outlet to I/C, 3" aluminum (Black Wrinkle)
    HPF (01-06) M3 E46 Oil Catch Tanks - HPF Stg 1-2.5 Turbo
    HPF (01-06) M3 E46 M3 Oil Coolers - Supercharged and Turbocharged
    HPF Wastegate Gaskets - Wastegate Port Flange at Manifold, .060" Hytex, 21/64" holes
    McMaster Bolts - Metric Class 12.9 Socket Head Cap Screw Znc-Coated Alloy Stl, M8 Thrd, 16mm L, 1.25mm Pitch (Min Qty=25)
    Precision Turbo Turbo Gaskets - T4 4 Bolt Inlet
    Turbonetics Turbine Turbo Gaskets - T3/T4 Oil Drain Gasket
    Powerflex RTABs
    TMS Subframe Reinforcement kit
    Dice Media Bridge with DCR-300 holder
    Spal Electric Fan conversion kit

    Coming soon before the HPF install:
    HPF (01-06) M3 Solid M3 Upper Motor Mounts - E46 Motor and Transmission (Gunmetal)
    K Sport (98-06) M3 Rear Camber Kits - E46
    K Sport (01-06) M3 Kontrol Pro Coilovers - INCL. FRONT PILLOW BALL MOUNT & REAR TOP MOUNT
    HPF New vented CF Engine Cover
    HPF Intake Snorkel (The one that fits behind the kidney Grills)
    As you all know the first part will be changing the color of the car. Nawaf has decided to go for FIRE ORANGE from the new M3 GTS. We will be using GLASURIT as used on my personal car with the Anti Scratch clear from the same company. Man that paint (Glasurit) is strong! LOL The car has an Imola red Interior and we are planning some sport seats for the interior with a re-trim. That will be done once the car goes back to KWT. I will post updates as they happen, Pics coming tonight.

    Soon Bro, Work is coming along fast, the driver side was already being sanded down today and should be done in another 2 days, then the passenger side and then after that hood and trunk. After everything is prepped on the bisy we'll prep the engine bay and spray that first. Then we'll do the body and then the hood trunk and bumpers etc.... More pics to come tomorrow.
