E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

Corvette C5 Z06 engine in a E30 M3

This is for the old timers but back in 2006, I knew this guy that was putting a 5.7L LS6 V8 into an E30 M3. I'm guessing he is one of an extreme few (or possibly the only one) to ever have done so. The car screamed. As horrible as it was to see an M3 cannibalized, it was the fastest car I have ever been in. It felt like the engine could tear the car apart if it wanted to.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? His name is Bob. I know he was active on various forums back then I just cant find any posts and lost contact with him a while ago.

There has been more than one LSX series engines put into E30 and E30 M3. More details would help. Car was being built where? Maybe a color of the car?

What forum did you read about the build? Google Search?

Being built in Gig Harbor, Washington. The car was grey, im not sure the specific color. I think it was a 1991 M3 but possibly a 1990. Im not sure when he started the project but it was likely finished in 2007/2008.

I didnt read about the build, I saw it in person. Family friends and lost touch when I moved out to the east coast.
