My E30 S54 Turbo + E30 S38 Turbo Cabrio + E28 2JZ-GTE

Greetings from Finland! Here's couple of my project E30's and E28.

E30 S54 Turbo (painted it + did do all the mods by myself, I will make all the M3 chassis mods in winter time):






Race wheels:







Holset Hx50 mfs
Vems ecu (using double vanos)
2200cc injectors + E85
8,5" + 10 x 18" OZ Hartge rims
D2 coils with also coils in rear
E30 M3 axles
E34 M5 brakes
Stainless steel airbox
etc...
Now car is suffering valve damage at sixth cylinder but new parts are coming for that disease

E30 Cabrio S38 Turbo (needs little paint job ):






Some ugly engine bay. Must do it all over again. Made in such big hurry.




First proper testing day so it's basically only burnouts and not fast driving. Also ****ty shifter and streering wheel pump were bothering all day
Some new **** on the last link at the bottom of the post.





Holset Hx55
D2 coils
E30 M3 axles
Vems ecu
Carbon airbox
1000cc injectors + E98 fuel (must upgrade to E85 after I finish my E28 project)
11" + 13" x 18" Work Rezax II rims with golden spike bolts and 6" wide rear lips.
etc...

And last but not least. First car was running with M52B28 engine but I needed something different so that's why 2jz.
BMW E28 535 stuffed with 3.0l 2jz engine + R154 gearbox. Stock twins + stock ecu with basic mods at this time but maybe single turbo conversion with Vems ecu in winter time Also must paint the whole car in one color because previous owner did make quite interesting paint job Or I will leave shark on the sides and paint hoods and roof. K-sport coils, E34 M5 brakes etc.













[/quote]

New rims to, Work Meister 19" with some wider lips


And some basic maintenance what is going on at the moment.

Incredible work here. I'm definitely interested in doing some sort of motor swap in the future for my 316, and this is tempting me even further!

How much time did it take to do the 2JZ-GTE swap?

Thank you
I did make it while doing S54 swap (I did those in same summer) and it took about a month. Most of the time I was waiting for the parts Hardest part with the E28 was gearbox because R154 is much more bigger than normal bmw getrac, but some welding and magic happens I think E36 is easier to fit if you look for back sump oil pan model.

S38 is ~650hp (handles more but cab chassis don't ) and pink TT is ~350hp because of the little turbos. S38 is dissassembled from the cab and waits new chassis. Never had time to dyno S54 but hopefully with the new engine and RE85 fuel we go near ~850hp.

Today was time to check some pistons + rods.

New block painted.


And here's some parts to fill it:


X-Beam Pauter








All new bearings.


All in right places.




After this is good time to think what to do with new rim parts.


Couple pics of the friends V8 I just painted.




Now just waiting for the cylinder head and it may take still couple of weeks to finish

While waiting for cylinder head to S54 some painting for E28. I used gunmetal color and it looks quite nice (better than red/silver cubes ).

Something from the weekend. Finland biggest BMW event Bimmerparty, about 1350 cars and 4500 spectators this year. This clip is from burnout competition. Car is working nicely although belt for water pump + alternator did snap in several pieces while driving the cooling round

Question Red tyre smoke

Please excuse this ignorant question, but how do you generate the red smoke during the burnout
