Ryan Castro's Avus Blue LS1 M3 Project *With Vids*

Hey guys,

Its been a while since I've posted up on here so I am re-introducing myself

1995 Avus Blue BMW M3 with a great running LS1 and T56 tranny from a 02 Camaro SS. I have raced BMWs all my life and will be road racing this one too!

Haven't done much to the motor yet but this is what has been done so far:

-Long tube headers becuase of the lack of space on the sides of the motor
-dual 3in pipe from the headers, to two 3in high flow cats to a single 4in outlet
-low temp thermostat
-4in intake
-MSD APS starter
-40% lock up 3.46 rear differential

Right now its at about 308whp / 313 tq

I hope to do some cam/head work soon.

here are some pics:

Totally awesome car. I'm pretty sure I'm going to do an LS swap in my car eventually.
