    ok so i finally got it on some scales. This is the "Start" weight. Full interior, and drivable condition.

    Click here to enlarge

    not too shabby.


    Stripped the interior out, and had to attack the roofing tar sheet stuff the previous owner put on the floor with dry ice. what a pain in the ass!

    dropped the total weight down to 2070.

    Still has the ghetto cage in it and factory steering column, and also has the sheet metal cassette welded to the roof for the sunroof. tomorrow I hope to have that stuff cut out (the sunroof and cage) but I doubt ill break sub 2000...... but I also havent started putting the cage in, aluminum, seats and safety stuff....

    Need to take out the door panels and make them with aluminum or entertain the idea of carbon fiber....




    This is all ya'lls fault. IF you woulda bought my M3 and I bought a E9x Xi, I would be ripping that apart lol

    Wow is that freaking light!

    You throw just about any bigger BMW motor and it will be fun with or without boost. An S38 would be glorious.

    This M10 should be entertaining as well. I'm hoping for 250+ at the wheels with the turbo

    I was disappointed in the night crew's work progress. While the beginning of the shift they got a ton of work done, they eventually were caught drinking beer and eating pizza with customers instead of working. I guess I can let it slide this time Click here to enlarge

    Trying to figure out how to get this tar substance off the body.... MEK? Acetone? Brake klean? WD40? sigh Click here to enlarge

    Got it down to 1950lbs.

    Cage got yanked, all sheetmetal that wasnt needed was hacked out. cut out the sunroof frame/pulled the sheetmetal from the roof. welded in the sunroof, got the body guy doing some love on the roof- since i should be banned from touching bondo Click here to enlarge


    while I was working on this thing, I got to thinking. WTF?

    Why don't I put a N54 into it?

    Welp, mainly because I have a running/driving turbo M10 that I want to see how much power it can make.


    when it blows up, ill start transitioning into N54 retardedness with this car. that will also let me play with auto trans that need to figured out with this car.

    my biggest project is the suspension for now. A) i need to put the M roadster rear suspension in to get disc and 5 lug. I'm still thinking of selling it to the E30 knurds and buying an entire rear E90 subframe, and graft in the subframe mounts into the cage.


    The front suspension will also be an ass kicker- I bought a flaming river mustang II steering rack.


    Need to buy/looking for an M10 oil pan so i can cut off the sump and move it to the back.
    Then, transfer the steering rack from the rear to the front of the subframe.
    THEN, get the the E90 knuckles/struts to fit and make control arms.


    Yes, this is ambitious, and yes this will be epic when it's done

    The M10 can provide more than ample power for this chassis.

    OK, so I'll be switching gears here. The M10 and megasquirt (along with that sweet ass dash) isn't staying in the car.


    I just paid for an entire front suspension/N54/6 speed, should be here by the end of the month.


    I was wishing I could use that megasquirt setup for the N54, but I don't think its gonna work- So ill be using the factory DME with a backflash/JB4 on it more than likely.


    Trying to figure out what to do for gauges now..... Stock instrument cluster? how am i gonna get speedometer to work? hmm....


    decisions.


    still trying to get these guys in france to give me a shipping quote on the group 5 widebody.....


    still looking for an E9x rear complete subframe.

    Brakes? Did we say anything about brakes?

    These are in development at the shop right now.....


    We will have a major update on that for the E90 kids later on in the year..... (335's and M3's.... branch out to later ones Click here to enlarge)

    but so far, this is the first picture of something that perhaps could be pretty neat Click here to enlarge
