• A spectacular E30 M3 turbo S14 build by member DCR

      If you are a BMW enthusiast, even in the slightest, you will appreciate a quality build like this. DCR's E30 M3 is simply one of the cleanest and best built custom turbo examples we have ever seen. The compression of the 2.5 liter motor was dropped to 8.1:1 and at just 9 psi it put down 265 whp. Impressive? Oh yes, and just take a look at that engine bay. Click read more to see the mod list and make sure you scroll down for the entire build history!

        Also curious to see how she's moving these days. What's the power band like with the extra boost?
