    Built this 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. Only quality parts have been used and anything that's a possible weak point has been addressed.

    • Runs 380bhp / 410ft lbs @1bar (getting close to 480/500 at 2 bar)
    • AC Shnitzer s3 engine (3.0 litre) - Arp Head Bolts - MLS Head gasket - Timing chain, tensioner etc refreshed
    Turbo converted with monster sized scavenge pump for safety (keeps oil flow from turbo to sump)

    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 dialled in properly, recently installed)
    eccentric lollipop bushes (m3)
    Poly-bushed everything on the rear, subframe, diff etc
    rear strut brace
    custom built 3" downpipe to 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 (note, will need a 3" full exhaust if aiming to run more power)
    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 is, but its not OTT)
    Vertex dished steering wheel
    Aem wideband, cheapo boost gauge (ecu gives a more accurate reading)
    Adjustable rear camber arms (DW)
    M sport interior / exterior from factory (full interior - not stripped out)
    Ali radiator (thicker, Mishimoto)
    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
    Walbro fuel pump and malpassi fpr
    Custom Depo angel eye headlights with turbo intake (turbo sits directly behind the headlight)
    New discs pads and handbrake shoes Jan 2020
    Rear arches rolled to accommodate wider tyres or wheels as needed
    Fresh gearbox and diff oil Jan 2020

    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 (eg all the fittings & hoses were from Think Automotive and specced correctly).

    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)

    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)

    Bump

    Managed to get more power out on the dyno, but the gearbox lunched itself when near 500ftlbs.

    Now has a new gearbox (standard getrag), fresh gbox oil and diff oil.

    Will be pulling the boost back to be safe for the time being. A stronger gearbox is the only limiting factor now (and maybe a metal inlet manifold)

    Update

    Felt like the top end of the rev range was a little weak so made some changes:-

    Hybrid Turbo by Turbo Developments (365 bearing, larger compressor housing)
    Mamba actuator
    Full 3" turbo back exhaust (was 2.5" from the downpipe before) - one less silencer so no longer sounds completely stock, has a nice volume with no drone

    Turbo is good to run at 2 bar all day long, but I have it set at 1bar for now.

    Just had a message pointing out I forgot to put a price!

    £7500 is the lowest I will take for a straight sale.
