    ED: those turbos though

    that looks awesome!.. still a little small, but really really really cool!

    why not keep the factory vac actuated wastegate setup? the DME would be happier, and it's been proven to work nice and bolt-on by vargas?

    that intercooler + oil cooler looks pretty freakin awesome too!
    those brakes are ridiculous

    and

    yep, this has been incredibly inspirational for me tbh. amazing stuff

    Those block guards are machined between the cylinder and engine wall, they are sitting tight.

    At this moment we keep the factory boost control logic with vacuum operated actuators. If the car works fine after rebuilting, than we may change the boost logic to boost operated actuators. But we are far away from this, need to do many-many modification.

    Regarding the turbos: they are larger than the factory turbos and I assume that they are smaller than Tony's stage3 turbos, but i do not know the exatc specification of Tony's stage3 turbos, so this is just a speculation.

    awesome work. please keep posting pictures.

    Im also interested in your boost control scheme (if you have one already)
    Boost scheme: first we rebuilt the engine with vacuum operated actuators, then maybe we change it to boost operated actuators. It depends on many things. Top priority to finish the car...

    Thanks bro! I will contact you regarding a few part. I have collected and purchased (almost) every bits, but i am a little bit hesitant in few things regarding different covers under the engine at the FRONT.

    I have also made a documentation, where all of the M3 suspension and M3 body conversation part are mentioned.

    And if you will be cut the rear fenders and weld the m3 rear fenders, don't forget orders parts

    ahh fair enough - i just don't know what they look like uninstalled haha. Any chance you got them from somewhere someone could order more sets made? Click here to enlarge

    Why would you want to move to boost actuated? More difficult, no real benefit (other than cutting out the annoying solenoids), harder to tune..

    would only be a good idea if you wanted to go external gated (singles or something?)

    Vargas stage 3 turbos are gtx28, most have ordered in 2867 size

    there are smaller options no one has purchased (gt25 etc) though

    still awesome going bigger twins of any sort Click here to enlarge

    Full M3 body conversation

    Thanks to ncat10, now i have every bits.

    If you would like to convert your e92 335i into M3 body, on the FRONT the job is "simple", just pick up the right stuff, unscrew, screw, fitting, etc. The hardest job to fit the REAR fender/side panel, which means cutting, welding, etc.

    I saw some building pictures regading the REAR side panel, and few of those people cut the original side panel at the C pillar, B pillar and at under the side skirt.

    My engineer suggest to cut the original side panel at the C pillar, B pillar and a specific line on the side panel.

    On my pictures, you can see the white line, where we will cut off the side panel (+/-).

    Wastgate arms/levers/what have you are on the block side of his turbos in the installed images. External wastegates would be soooo much better than the stock setup if for no other reason then you will NEVER have to deal with that god*(%$ed rattle ever again. And those small cylinders "should" brace the top of the cylinders and keep them from moving down the road. The top of the cylinder is the most likely place for cracking to start(due to open deck design) and will be where the movement occurs. You stop the movement there and the rest will be fine.

    I would looooove to do a m3 body conversion, I just love the wide fenders. But you can't have the ///M logo in the grill....

    Keep posting pics of the m3 body conversion!

    ahhhh fair enough. that makes sense Click here to enlarge


    yeah i figure that's why you'd put the block guards up the top, but i hae no idea how they're shaped/slot in... capped top so it sits there where the rest is thinner and wedged in?

    What a job, Las.

    Do you mind commenting a bit about the wear and tear of your old engine internals?

    Seriously, are the pistons forged? I haven't followed up this part too.

    Thx

    There were no any sign of wear and tear of my old engine, however I have lost 4.5L oil from 6.5L, when my oil line blow up. I realy beleive, that Motul 300V Power 5W40 oil saved my engine's life. My old engine was super clean inside, and has 68.000 km in the clock.

    The factory pistons and rods are not forged, my new JE pistons are forged and my new Carillo rods are forged as well.

    The cylinder braces are either an interference fit, or machined and then incorporate an interference fit.

    Thanks I have forwarded your pictures to my engineers. Today we test fit the front of the M3 stuff into the 335i wit M3 carbon bracket. We try to custom fit the intercooler via this conditions.
    Also we would like to have M3 style oil cooler under the front panel.

    M3 style oil cooler

    As my 335i will have a complete M3 body conversation, today we start to test build the front of the car, of course with M3 stuff. We have fitted the engine hood and other front panels.


    What we are hesitating or other words we are prefering to have an M3 styte oil cooling system like the real M3 has under the front bumper.


    We will figure this out together with the intercooler and hope they will not interfere to fit.


    If the M3 style oil cooler will fit together with the intercooler, than we custom made an M3 style upgraded oil cooler, like Motorsport24 developed an upgraded M3 oil cooler.

    Ceramic coated exhaust manifolds and turbine houses

    Finally my exhaust manifolds and turbine houses are back and have ceramic coated (inside, outside). This technology was developed by two of my friends.
