Yup, going to be a while though, probably winter, thanks!

Looking at GT37s or Precision 6466s. Need a turbo, and tuning package, BOV, Wastgate, and intercooler.


Then I'll start putting things together. Then obviously will need a shop for the exhaust and intercooler piping. Going to do meth injection as well.

Nice find.

Couldn't help but notice scrolling through your pictures on the last page.

Is that an M badge?

It depends on the turbo, more like 450 at 15psi and 650 on higher boost.

Yes, I haz M badge. PO put it on there and when I went to take it off the paint looked terrible underneath.

*Note, Matt has an ///M badge, NOT an ///M3 badge.

Far as I'm concerned, having a ful ///M bodykit, plus an engine that'll spank an ///M3 qualifies him handily for the badge.

90%, I may keep a coupler or two for my car, and I'll probably keep my current oil feed line and such.

You'd basically need oil feed and drain, throttle body elbow (mine is welded on) couple of couplers, couple of T clamps, and a few vacuum lines. Plus whatever gauges you would want to run and a good clutch. Actually I'd sell the clutch setup.

Not to be disrespectful towards Matt or anything, but I completely disagree. Not going to spark a debate about this but an M badge belongs on an M car and that's it. I understand the car may be faster than mine, but it should only be on a car that rolled off the line as an M.

But either way, car is looking good Matt. I'm really jealous of those wheels.

No disrespect taken at all, I simply base my opinion on this criteria:

Quote:
BMW M GmbH (previously: BMW Motorsport GmbH) is a subsidiary of German car manufacturer BMW AG.
BMW M, also known as M-Technik or just "M" (for Motorsport) was initially created to facilitate BMWís racing program, which was very successful in the 1960s and 1970s. As time passed, BMW M began to supplement BMW's vehicles portfolio with specially modified higher trim models, for which they are now most known by the general public. These M-badged cars traditionally include modified engines, transmissions, suspensions, interior trims, aerodynamics, and exterior modifications to set them apart from their counterparts. All M models are tested and tuned at BMW's private facility at the NŁrburgring racing circuit in Germany.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_M


Others are completely welcome to view this otherwise, as I see it, it is the ///M3, ///M5, ///M6 etc that should remain pure.

The ///M you could get on a 318 M-Technic. The only thing 'performance' on those cars was an additional 500 RPM to the redline.

Thanks!

Like I said, it was on there when I bought it. I took it off and the paint was not salvageable underneath.
