    Just got E30 M30B35 Twin Turbo setup, need help...

    short story, original owner of the car had lots of debt and left the car as a payment... the seller had absolutely no idea about the car or setup... neither do i... LOL so i bought it for cheap now i want to see if i can learn more about M30b35's and E30's.. and have a fun track or drift car... it was originally an e30 325is btw..

    some issues with the car..
    1. one side of the exhaust blows white greyish smoke only upon deceleration after a hard pull (two exhaust setup, 1 for each turbo) what could this mean?
    2. im not sure how it is tuned..
    3. im sure there is more but i've only driven the car once and now its back on stands since i had the wheels refinished...

    im thinking of doing a single turbo instead of 2... the reason for this is almost all m30b35 setups i see on the net are all single turbo... and i get my info from the internet.

    what do i need to get this to at least 300rwhp?

    much thanks!

    I can't get over how sick your E30 is.

    Anyway, let's see if we can get you some help.

    A single turbo should easily get you well over 300 whp.

    Let us see some more pictures from the setup(turbo brand, manifold, etc....

    With this information you can do nothing
    Who build the setup?there is almost no information.

    Please dont drive it hard because you do not know if it is tuned the right way way,your engine will blow up very fast.

    i apologize @daytonaM3, i didnt get any info from the seller as he doesnt know crap about the car either. it was transferred to him as debt payment... here's what i found out on my own...the turbos are stock nissan rb turbos, manifold is custom, chip-tuned (chip has turner sticker on it), 36lb injectors bosch (white giant)...

    so now i'm going single turbo top mount... bought GT3582r and mspnp2 already awaiting arrival... manifold will be custom again since shipping one from overseas is such a hassle... i dont really know what to do next when its all put together as far as tuning, im just gonna ask for help in the forums lol

    A M30 turbo setup will do 550hp on stock internals easily....

    Go with a PTE 6266 with a T3 .83 exhaust housing !!!

    If you go the route of getting pistons, rods and studs... you can make 700hp with that turbo...

    proper injectors and a good tune will also be needed !!!

    Gospel! Fitting the parts won't be much of a headache, but you want to be sure to get a solid tune and enough fuel for sure! Not sure who you guys have locally in PI, but here are two great tuners in the States:

    Doesn't look like a stock ECU car. Could be a stock ecu with a Millar WAR chip. This is a give away due to the hot-wire MAF instead of the AFM, along with the stock ignition system. M30's are known to hold 400whp on stock internals, with just headstuds.
