thanks for all the compliments and words of encouragement. Just spent 9 hours on the car.....wow i'm tired....2:30am and i'm just getting home.

headlights and HID installed, head unit installed w preamps ran to the trunk for future amps and sub plus sirius, bluetooth and USB port wired into the car (what a bitch!!!), all 4 new wheels installed and coilovers adjusted to allow fitment.

also helped another e36er rework his Eisanmann race exhuast and remove DTM tips.

ugh.....so much fun but so so tired.

Will post pics in the next few days when I have time.

oh...seat brackets turned out to be wrong and actually fit an e30 M3 so I'm having new brackets expressed to me for Friday so I'll have them in for this weekend festivities.

Sniz, what turbo are you running? what boost will you be running at once the meth kit is in? will you have separate tunes/boost levels for pump gas and race gas?

if you think this is gonna be a crazy build, you gotta get over to the forced induction section of bimmerforums.com...not to take away from Sniz's build, but there are crazier e36 builds going on right now...

oh 100% there are crazier builds, but this is basically my DD now so its only going to get so crazy.

the turbo is a PT61, boost is 14-15psi on pump and on meth it will probably be 18psi on pump.

I think a gt35r HSA will find it way into this car sometime in the next year or so.
I am running on a custom tuned stock ECU, so it wont have the ability to change maps, only a standalone will do that really.

exactly my point...at a goal of ~500whp, this isn't exactly a crazy "uncharted territory" e36 build. nevertheless, that kind of power in a ~3200-lb. car will be TONS more fun than your last ride.

very nice...my brother is in the process of a similar build. he is putting a PT67 (or a 6262, or some hybrid thereof) on his S52B32 M Coupe. he is also going to run meth, and is shooting for ~500whp on pump gas (i'm not sure what he's aiming for on race gas). he is also planning on tuning with the stock ECU and Nick G.

yup its Nick G tune, working on getting him to custom tune for Meth. I will only run meth if he is tuning it .

Beautiful, man! Makes me want to get my poor e36 out of the garage, it's been sitting there for two years waiting for me to get around to it!

Simply amazing Sniz! I never really come through this area of the forum, but it looks like I'm gonna have to just to follow the progress of your beautiful e36! I hope my e30 can compete one day soon!

from today's BMW CCA spring tour for the national chapter. I will post up a bunch of photos from today, some awesome cars, great weather and beautiful locations and fun roads, cant ask for more!

tweaked the suspension a little more last night AND got my new seats installed...love them. There is a little more room to bring it down in the front, but I want to be careful with it...have to keep in mind there is a downpipe hanging low....dont want to tear that off!







no room for lowering here!



Corbeau CR1's are in...love these seats. Honestly, they are more comfortable to me than the Vaders, put almost 6 hours and 300 miles into these seats today and my back feels great! Could not say that w the Vaders. Important to get the optional adjustable lumbar supports if you buy these seats...big help.

Corbeau has aluminum insert rings for the harness holes...you guys think those would look good?

I'll get better interior shots sometime soon
