is it bad to turbo a e36 m3 engine before building it...say i have a 99 m3 with 90k miles and i wanna put a garrett gt 35 R turbo on it .....would it be better to build the engine first...cams pistons gears rods exaust chips......how much do you think it would cost me to get my e 36 m3 up to 380 hp?

You will need internal work to get that kind of hp so your question about re-building it is moot.

Bad? What is "bad"? Gears in the motor?

Very unwise with the stock compression to run that turbo setup. The N/A M motors have high compression and love to rev out.

The valvetrain, bottom end, and electronics are not setup for a 50% increase in power.


When turbo charging motors that are non rebuilt high mileage stock motors it's safe to say you shouldn't run too much boost. A garret 35 R is a great turbo but its overkill for stock applications.

My suggestions, save up your hard earned money and do it right the first time ; ).

Answer 2 your question BIG NO

And with that turbo hmm a lill bit overkill! U ll stop at 0,5 in boost!

Well i dont wanna kill all u guys! But the answer is BIG NO


What u need is a

Prices in dollar New/used

Head gasket MLS 3,5mm 300
Turbo 800/400
IC 500/100
Mainfold 1400/600
400cc ingectors 100/10 each When u are looking for used once BIG engine volyme few cylinders. At least 3.0 Inlet 6cyl turbo like the supra! Can find old once from the older model. good tips junk yard Asian kids cant drive hehe
And turn up your fule pressure! screwdriver 10/1
wastegate
Oil in let out let 2 the turbo. 100/20
You ll not need a chip or map the unit it ll work mechanical if you turn up the fule pressure! up till 3 bar if u have 400 cc ingectors. around 0,8 bar at the turbo. When u install the bigger uingectors u need 2 dissconnect the battery and then when u start the engine let it map itself on idel and repeat that moment 5 times!
Turbo boost u need a boost meter start at 0,4bar and increas till you reach a good power!


Megasquirt is a after market EMS. 1000/400

around 4000/1800

Rubin is correct with the compression a thick MLS gasket sault that problem.

Stock is 10.2:1 New comp 8.756:1

( 3.5-1.8 )*(84/2)^2*pi = 9421mm^3
465509 + 9421 +50599 / ( 9421 + 50599) = 8.756:1

Also Need new Bolts ARP From the us hehe good things!

With this settings u can go up to 1-1.2 Bar 0,8 daily driving! we were driving 80000Km with my old engine on 0,8bar boost!

If you need some help dont forget 2 ask!:angel:
