    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


    Shopping list:
    ARP & RaceWare - Performance Head Stud Kit M30 - CHECK
    VAC - M30 MLS Gasket .080 Cylinder Bore up to 93mm - CHECK
    Siemens Deka IV 80lb/hr 830cc injectors -CHECK
    TiAL Sport Q Blow Off Valve -CHECK
    TiAL Sport 46mm Wastegate -CHECK
    Wasted Spark Coil from Opel Vectra V6 - CHECK
    Holset HX35 A/R 1.20 - CHECK
    Custom Exhaust Manifold - CHECK
    VEMS standalone - 1000$
    VAC - M10 / M30 High Performance Valve Guide - 10$
    VAC - 8mm Hardened Valve Locks / Keepers - 6$
    CP Pistons - M30 Custom bore 8.5:1 (For Turbo) - 1100$


    Wish to buy (and probably will later):
    VAC - M30 High Performance Valve Springs - 335$
    VAC - M30 Titanium Valve Retainers (8mm) - 220$
    VAC - M30 Billet Rocker Arms, Set of 12 - 1800$
    Racing Dynamics - E34 Anti-Roll Sway Bar Kit - 510$


    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 itClick here to enlarge
