Forged 8.5:1 pistons
ARP everything (head, mains, rods)
aline honed mains/rods
honed/decked block
super lightweight lifters
115lb (open) valve springs
3 angle valve job
Late model retainers/keepers
Fidenza 3pc 13lb flywheel
ACT HD pressure plate/6 puck sprung disk
Gapless top rings
Napier second rings
Total seal oil control rings
(all rings filed within .001")
Good & Tight manifold
72mm Precision Power turbo
Starting with 42lb/hr injectors
24x12x3" BPMC intercooler
Condor Speed Shop solid mounts
ZF gearbox
2.93LSD

We will be hacking the Motronic (have been writing chips for a decade) to start out, but have MS2 waiting for after break in and for larger injectors.

Beginning goal is a smooth pulling 400whp with the Motronic.

I think the bigger worry is axles and/or driveshaft.

....best part is, this is going in a Pink e30

Because race car. The guy who posted in the pics thread a while back with the green wide body turbo'd 24v was making 700hp with his. M52, with a ton of work. Car has since been parted, cut up and sold.
