Give my N55 what it deserves, a 3000 pound chassis

My N55 just broke up with a fat bitch called E90 and asked me to find him a new girlfriend but he said tired of banging fat bitches and want something tight and slim, so I hooked it up with a lady called E36

What is my goal? Turbocharge my E36 sedan and do it cheaply as possible but also make it reliable, hip, cool, new, unique, fun...etc.





This is all that is left of e90







Video of it running:


Update 2/22/2014

Got the radiator fan sorted out to fit just right. Using Bosch pulsewith controlled fan.





Got the intercooler mounted, got the E36 transmission cooler to work.





Got the 2.5" piping working, won't be using the car during hot days, do there is no point in spending money on getting the A/C to work.



Update 2/28/2014

Finished it enough to be able to drive it. All I can say this thing is very fast. You feel the torq right away and engine pulls hard all the way to the redline. Feels faster than E36 with S54.



















Update May 2014.
Sold the seats, audio/navigation system, steering wheel, two rims, plus other parts. This brought the cost of my project N55 engine down to $3k area. I could not be more happy, guys here spend that on cheap ebay crap turbo that they put on their M50. I put the stock E36 steering wheel back on, and bought some cheap E46 lightweight mechanical seats.
