Default m30 e30

So this is a bit of a cross post, but I will update more around the new m30 build

there is a little monster who sleeps in my grage through the week just waiting for the covers to be removed come the weekend. I could ramble for years about my e30 but I'll keep it short & sweet, started life as a 1990 318i auto & now the list below reads:

Engine:
m30b35 from e34
rebuilt head
284 shrick cam
Miller Maf conversion
custom exhaust(which is going to a revamp shortly)

Gearbox:
Close ratio getrag 265 from an e28 m-sport
3.15 LSD

Suspension & brake:
Hypercoil spring 450lb fronts 600lb rear
GE coilover sleeve conversion
custom valved GAZ gold rear dampers
Koni sport short front dampers
AKG bushes lower control arm, trailing arms, rear subframe, & diff mount
custom rear strut brace & whiteline front
Massive brakes 2 piece rotor hats wilwood rotors
Massive brakes caliper mounts
Wilwood Dynapro 4pot calipers
custom braided lines to meet ADR standards
e46 clubsport steering rack
Ireland engineering 24mm front swaybar
Whiteline 19mm rear swaybar with Ireland engineering reinforcing mounts
Ireland engineering aurora endlinks for front & rear swaybars

wheels:
Simmons f90 rebuilt by me(worse job to do ever)
16x7.5 with re002
16x8 & sportmax rears

Interior:
Evo 5 recaros with massive brakes adaptors to fit oem rails
Renown motorsports steering wheel


















This was one of those I'll buy a daily cars & then it becomes an impractical daily. But I love it

So I've been working on the next stage for the e30 over the past few months,

the overall plan is a high comp m30b35 running e34 m5 ITB's

Head:
ported to accept PPM +1mm valves & cleaned up for better flow
Shot peened rockers and rocker locks to replace the original locating springs
New valve springs
294/294 Cat cam
46mm s38b36 ITB's with adapters to fit the m30

Bottom end:
Custom pistons running 11.0:1comp
Rods - tossing up between h beam Honda h22 rods which fit with an over length of 143mm, or s38 m5 rods at 144mm but weigh more. In comparison the m30 rods are 135mm
Block is being honed, all bearings being replaced new seals & timing chain
ARP stud kit

ECU Master - EMU with a new loom being wired up

I'm down to ordering/fabbing the final pieces:
Biting the bullet on rods
Once rods are ordered custom pistons can be measured up
Headers being fabricated once the new motor is in
Ecu/wiring
Tune














As the e30 sits





while we where at WTAC rocking the girlfriends panasports g7's that are going on her e30, my simmons are currently at Barrel Bros getting fresh paint & new lips polished



& I did some wheel stuff


Split my Simmons f90's over the weekend picked up new lips to bring them to 16x8.5 square, or stagger them at 8's & 8.5's. Just a matter of finding tyres looking like a slight stretch on 225/45/16 is going to happen as no one makes a 235/45/16



3" lips
Stainless bolts
& fresh paint





Arranging picking up of another m30 so I can build up the motor & swap it into the car when ready, lets me still enjoy the e30 for now

Got to love the flat four, surprised by the peak from standard only real performance parts that went with it along with the tune where; Processwest tmic, Cobb short intake, invidia dump, & hyperflow catback

after seeing some low low Forester decided I need to invest in coilovers, but e30 stuff first.

Wow what? 260bhp and you managed to pull 600 lb-ft from that? Modified gearing or what how is that even possible?

Joys of the flat four motor the ej25 is good for low end nothing special gearing wise, being an s-edition its a 5sp auto. In factory guise it makes 197kw at the flywheel & 350nm.

my old e82 135i made 258rwkw & a scratch over 700nm of torque, i love the flat 4 & the inline six for their inherit torque producing ability.
