needs plastic bumpers. the dbs just dont kick it with the intercooler just out there.

but year is about right due to the dbs, as of the 2.7 stroker thats alittle iffy due to the 2.7 eta was the stock motor. but he could of done a seta with a turbo (due to the 2.7l head). all that m3 jibberish, just normal bosch components, he was just trying to make it seem more special.

what do you mean by M block all of the "M" E30's had a four cylindar engine not the 2.5L and if i am not mistaken the 2.7L head is not as good as the 2.5 head

Well this is a L6 6 cylinder he said its got a m3 block and he said thats a 2.7 head ? by taking valve cover of i can c everything is like new, and eh said je pistons ? im not sure idk what is it stock engine re built ? or what engine/block is it ? he said m3 block and 2.7 head ?

and i think i will put front lip on and pint the intercooelr black.

but so how to verity what engine ? and block ? and does anything make sense ?

also what ecu or computer ?

right before the fuel pres theirs a valve manual ??

what management can i use ? and tips or things i should check ?

if its an i6, its not an m. most likely its a 2.5l block with the 2.7 seta head

do not paint the intercooler black. you will insulate the fins, which hold in more heat, loss of power and bad juju for engine components

no nothing makes sense. we will wait for steve to make the final burn

ecu is most likely stock with a chip added

huh?

fuel management- stand alone. it tends to keep the af ratio the closest.

4800 well spent......NOT. car looks horrible. retarded ///M badge, and you are just as much of a fool as the previous owner was. ask questions before you jump on ****, i've learned that the hard way. ifyou would have come on here, stated what the car was and what the previous owner told you, everyone here would have said no don't buy it. like one said, e30 m3 is a 4 cyl, no way in hell a 4 cyl head is going on a 6 cyl block.

EDIT: did i say get rid of the ///M badge? can't stress that enough, easiest thing to get rid of on that car...besides driving it to a junkyard.
