i love this forum already... i might even post a thread about my E34 here 8)
So... i got a near-MINT E34... very clean on the outside, NO RUST !
Some genius tried to paint the chrome, satin black without sanding down, so all the paint has started to chip on it...
I just pressure washed that off and am going to have a shop paint it satin black for me...
I already have H&R/Bilstein/AC-Schnitzer suspension..
While the M30 is being built, the car has a M20B20 in it, and the only good thing about that is that it gets good mileage :')
I'm was speculating on the turbo options, i had three turbos in stock...
These were a Holset HX35 from a 5.9 Cummins 6BT, a Holset HX52 from a FL12 VOLVO and a Holset H1C that came from a 14L SCANIA truck...
I decided on the HX35, since it has a 16cm2 exaust housing, A/R being 1.20

The head has been stripped off the M30B35....
Unfortunately it has High Compression pistons..
First plans were to use other pistons, i called a friend and he had some dished pistons for me...
Piston rings cost about 900$, so i might aswell put in an extra 200$ and buy CP forged pistons with rings...
I've decided to paint it in Yellow (Ferrari Giallo 102) but paint the top and hood Black (Schwarz II)
*decided to post my draft here so i can copy this text and add pictures to it tomorrow when i post a thread about it
