    S85 into an E30 M3

    Well... got this small shipment the other day, a bag that could not
    be checked in on a flight from Denmark to Iceland. So it was
    delivered by freight instead Click here to enlarge

    I don't care what others say...I absolutely LOVE the S85 and would love to build one and drop it into something some day. Awesome motor.

    That's gonna be sick, but I wouldn't think the car would handle that great with all that weight up front. Seems almost too light for that much weight up front no? Maybe I have a misconception of how heavy the S85 is?

    Not any heavier than the S50B32 Supercharged setup I have now Click here to enlarge

    Done a sub 8 BTG lap at the Nurburgring with the S50, handles just fine.

    The Ring is pure automotive nirvana, best place on earth for car guys!!!!

    Here is the 7:55 lap:
    www.rngtoy.com/thordur/almennt/Eurotour2008_5_september/2008-09-21_03_0755.wmv

    Went slow until I was through Hatzenbach, then realized the track was pretty
    empty and started pushing (approx. 1:15).

    If you ever get the chance to go there, donīt miss it!

    That should be easy if there is no traffic in the way.

    Well, not quite Click here to enlarge The times I quote are so called BTG, or Bridge to Gantry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...idge_to_gantry)

    To try to compare that to full laps then you can add approx. 20 seconds, so that
    would be 8:15 in my case.

    No kidding. It will be a tight fit and I probably have to be brutal with the transmission tunnel "redesign".

    Sure will be. Was a bit afraid of the software side but that has been solved.

    Iīm also going to use either the E60 M5 cluster or the E90X one, some work
    will be needed to get everything to work, some analog value -> CAN message conversions.
