I may be the only one posting here from the Mid-West. Most of the E30 M3 posts are from the west coast.

I took my car to E30Fest in Columbus last weekend and won 2nd place. Even have a trophy!
not the only one from the midwest there are at least 3 of us around the Chicago area. We mostly post on s14.net

I know 3 other E30 M3s here in Columbus, but I there are others I have yet to see.

I have not posted on that board much since I don't have an S14.

No, it has an E36 M3 transmission and 3.25 LSD. From what I understand, it will bolt up to the stock transmission, but it's not ideal.

There are some sites out there with good info. http://www.terrysaytherauto.com/E30-S52Conversion.htm

Good luck!

does anyone know how much an s14 engine weighs?

I guess it all depends on what you call an "engine." My understanding is that the s52 weighs 100lbs more than the s14. I saw one web-site had s14 at 350lbs. I also saw on another web-site that an n52 engine weighs 354lbs. I don't know if these numbers on an apples/apples basis. If these numbers are correct, n52 could be a nice swap w/ little weight distribution penalty (although two more cylinders over the front axle). Anyone have these numbers? I'm obsessed with car/parts weight.

Yes, the S52 does weigh more. I need to get my car on corner scales, but it should be around 2,900 lbs. With a motor putting out around 275 hp, I think the 80 - 100 lbs increase is worth it.

It's an infrared picture. I bought a Hoya IR filter to capture the effect. B&H Photo sells the filters. (Less expensive than converting a camera to IR). You get some really interesting results, they vary by camera, exposure, settings, etc.

Beat you to it. The market in the mid-west is soft in December. Especially people who are broke after the holidays.

I am in the middle of negotiations on a red 91 as we speak. I am surprised how dead this area is. I look forward to bringing some life to it.
