    Putting my turbo e36 up to see what's out there as a swap or px before spending any more money on it.
    My plan for this car was to have something that can be comfortable and daily friendly, but also be a competent drift / track car. Its a good balance between the two currently.

    Running 380bhp / 410ft lbs @1bar on an unknown turbo; not sure what the turbo can handle so have not upped the boost (have had it checked over and everything is solid, zero play). Rest of the setup is easily good for 500+hp reliably.



    Spec list:-

    AC Shnitzer s3 engine (3.0 litre) - Arp Head Bolts - MLS Head gasket - Timing chain, tensioner etc refreshed last year
    Bottom mount turbo with monster sized scavenge pump for safety (ran fine without it previously)

    e36 323 originally, in Boston Green (had really tired paint) so its now vinyl wrapped gloss white

    JR racing 17" wheels

    HSD Monopro coilovers (need setup properly, recently installed)
    eccentric lollipop bushes for an m3
    Poly-bushed rear, subframe, diff etc
    rear strut brace
    custom built 2.5" exhaust, which is really quiet. Its a properly done system, sits nice and follows the standard exhaust routing tucked up nice and high
    Big intercooler
    Stewart EMP uprated waterpump
    Racing thermostat (opens earlier)
    Coolerworx Pro shifter
    830cc injectors
    Link G4 ecu (anti-lag, launch control etc etc)
    Welded diff, steeper ratio (forget what it was, but its not OTT)
    Vertex dished steering wheel
    Aem wideband, cheapo boost gauge and water gauge
    Adjustable rear camber arms (DW)
    M sport interior / exterior from factory
    Ali radiator (thicker, black, think its Mishimoto, dont recall)
    Mocal oil cooler, Mocal oil filter housing & pipework
    Front lower x brace
    Alpine stereo bluetooth etc, rear 6x9 focal speakers, front focal 5.25", sound deadening around the speakers, looks stock, sounds great
    Competition clutch, quite heavy, rated for 800ish hp / slightly less torques
    DW lightweight flywheel
    Benchmark coilpacks
    NGK BKR7 spark plugs
    Wakbro fuel pump and malpassi fpr

    Probably a load of other stuff that I have forgotten. When building the car, it went through iterations of testing to make sure there were no leaks, knocks, weak points etc. In labour alone - a small fortune has been spent to make sure its done right, so its solid and reliable. - not a bodged timebomb.

    Not really looking to sell, as I would rather keep the car and enjoy it (rather than take the hit on what it owes in parts and labour) - would need £8750 firm to let it go.

    As mentioned earlier - seeing whats out there (swaps / px's) potentially; if nothing pops up, will convert to a larger top mount turbo and aim for 500 hp 20190407_010237. 20190713_115618. 20190713_115834. 20190713_115805.

    Bump.

    Turbo has been relocated to top mount and a 3" downpipe put on. Might have increased the power, it feels more aggressive than before.

    Have you still got old manifold(bottom mount) and downpipe? If you do, would you be interested to sell it?

    I will get some pics of the new setup as requested.
    No old parts available (previous parts either cannibalised or thrown away already)

    Bump

    Now has angel eye headlights (depo) and heat wrap over the parts near the turbo

    Also now makes 430bhp / 465ftlbs (- the bigger downpipe increased boost naturally to 1.2 or 1.3 bar, actuator not adjusted)
