current production engine, Newest technology, dme is mounted on the engine, valvetronic, one downpipe, improved overall design.

Actually less than what it would cost me to turbo the stock M52.

Yes. Someone who does not know BMW saw it and tought all those parts are original E36, LOL.

Dyno vids when done. I'd love to see vargas stage 2 turbo on this n55. Beast of a car, it would be.
I would never buy "vergas" hack job kits. I rather keep it all stock, I automatically upgraded the engine by simply going with lighter chassis.

All that trouble and you kept it automatic?
Yes, this thing will rip at the dragstrip, 6HP21 is state of the art automatic transmission

That is serious work, simply amazing. I would get her protuned on E85 when you get her running. It will be a serious car with that lighter chassis.

Awesome work! If you really want to lighten it Frankenstein, remove the unneeded interior - back seats, passenger seat, side panels, roof liner, excess wiring, etc. I'm sure you knew that though. Just sayin... I wish I had the know-how, gumption, and time to do such a project myself. Major props to you. True street cred.
