I hadn't planned on doing another build thread....
but after thinking about it for a while, i thought it might help keep me motivated.
this build will probably be a bit of a slow burner, as i have other commitments this year....for time and money :roll:

as seen in another thread a few weeks ago...when i found it...

Image

getting delivered......

Image

Image

Image

at its new home.....

Image

another road trip today, up to rochdale this time.....
put down a deposit on this s63b44, from a f10 m5.
only has 6600 miles on it.
i'll be collecting it in a couple of weeks.
not the best pics...as were taken on my phone...

It will take a week just to clean it up :D
I wonder what the difference will be compared to the V10 performance wise. Have any idea on what transmission, and diff you will use?

Great project


Your old e30 m3 engine seemed to sell fast!

Has a E90 m3 turbo engine been fitted in a e30 before?

This is going to be an amazing build !

For some inspiration, this is how the S63TT builds speed on an autobahn, when sat in my boat of an M6 Gran Coupe :

Its literally going to be unbeatable in your E30 M3 !!

Muchos Kudos to you !

Looking forward to this one, plenty of grinder action ahead! Is that an ekp module? I still have your e60 pumps if you need them to graft in to the tank.

due to a personal reason,
i've decided to 'hang up my grinder'

i'm not going to continue with this, or any other car/project...
i've spent too many hours and weekends with projects....

so over the next couple of weeks, everything project related i have here will be on the bay...

sorry.
