    Hi all new to drifting but not to beemers just in the process of putting my e36 drifter together, here's how it was when I picked it up.

    Then coilovers

    Then 3" japspeed straight through exhaust

    [​IMG]

    Always hated the colour green

    My plan is a single turbo 2jz implant job, it's seems the easiest job to turbo an e36. I've got my own shop and tools.
    My other cars are an 340 bhp m3 evo

    [​IMG]

    And a 365bhp m3 e46

    [​IMG]

    And soon a practice 220 bhp e36 325.

    Finished the hydro and it works a treat

    [​IMG]

    Going to fit some braided lines to tidy it up looks a bit rough.

    Next up e46 arms, 20mm mod on the hubs, rack spacers fitted and wheel spacers. And fully weld the hydro as I broke the tacs testing its position.

    [​IMG]

    Fitted some tow straps as door pulls

    [​IMG]

    Will be fitting new door skins next week.

    Also got a few pics of my beemers together.

    Finaly fitted some new wiper blades today, no more squeaking wipers.

    [​IMG]

    Then fitted my baffle for the exhaust ill take pics in the morning, a lot quieter when driving normal which is good but is down on power and miss the sound on full chat.

    [​IMG]
    Just got home and noticed that a grill had decided it wanted nothing more to do with the car haha

    [​IMG]

    Also I heard some knocking, turns out its the rack it was on my list to do anyway, so in a week or so few more bits to go and ill pull the front off.

    - e46 steering rack
    - e46 lower arms
    - rack spacers
    - evo top mounts reversed
    - wheel spacers
    - mod the hubs (20mm cut out)
    - x6 braided brake lines

    [​IMG]

    And more to be added most importantly a drivers seat belt as the harness is a pain when I'm using it as a daily.
    The harness will be staying tho.

    Decat, filter and a remap should see them figures.ive had the e36 m3 on the rollers and that 338bhp and the e46 is a lot quicker so I'm confident in my estimation.
