    Ok so as above I came across a cheep e60 with a full a/c schnitzer kit on it,, I had a 1jz lying around.. I decided to buy a 350z gearbox as the bmw gearboxes are too noisy for the road and a r154 are crap and feel like the selector is a spoon in a bowel of soup,,ive been at this a while now and have had to change some things along the way due to faulty parts or not being satisfied with the quality but ill update in the pictures as I go..

    next were the injectors,, I got denso 860cc but further down the line on start up these would prove to be chinese crap so were replaced by ford mustang 770cc injectors

    Probably the best combo I could think of can't wait to see this finished, will you be trying to keep everything inside the car functioning as normal? whereabouts in Kildare are you? I'm near Kilcock myself

    Nice work

    What back end / diff are you going to use?

    What kinda power you going for?

    Does the e60 weigh something similar to a jzx100 or jzx90?

    Thanks. I'm going for around 500hp. It's set up to use antilag .. for the rear end I'm probably going m5 ad it's the only e60 with an l.s.d ...I don't know about weight but most of the e60 is aluminium including chassie legs. Shock turrets... subframes and arms front and rear so I'd say the e60 is lighter

    so I was worried about the bmw rad set up not keeping the 1j cool and there was a lot of pipes attached to the expansion bottle so I fitted an s14 driftworks super cool alloy rad
