Very nice build. Ive always been a fan of E30's.
On a side note you have to remember not everyone uses or cares about forums. Just because its not posted online doesnt mean they havent been done.

for the money you;d spend on modyifing that differential you could spend a few hundred buck more and get a 9: inch kit that you could cut down to lenght. get the same custom axles needed use whatever rear brake system you'd like even a stock disk kit if you can weld the ends on tot he 9" kit. from there you could get a custom 4 link kit you cut down and weld to spec and relocate whatever stock or aftermarket suspension set up you might want to do. plus the ring and pinions for the 9" diff are a dime a dozen. swaping the final drive aside from the ring and pinions would only be the cruch collar to set contact pattern for them and a pinion bearing that would need to be pressed on to each pinion you;d change with the ring.

personally i think its not as much power you have but how good you can put it down. so if it was me i'd spend more time and effort in that part of the drivetrain and suspension.

keep us posted.





take this time to realize you are better off ignoring this fucking retrard that has nothing to contribute ever!



yea clock that compressor differently and try to lessen that bend or see if you cant ut into the wheel well and sweep it around better.

wow man thanks for the info, i havent put much thought to the drivetrain and suspension. I do know that brakes will be upgraded, and on these cars i can use a ton of different BMW difs which some are known to hold the power. But yea man my main concern is actually putting the power down. Still have long ways to have the car running the way it should run specially at high HP.

Hey i have to say thanks for the props everyone. Not everyone approves my swap, specially BMW die hard fans. There is alot of different engine you can fit in these cars and many people rather keep it BMW with an S50 or S52 engines. I will continue to post as it comes out of the shop and i get her in the streets.

i'd be the type to try to shove a sbc or bbc under the hood just to piss off those beamer heads. who gives a shit its your car, your project, your time and effort. if you want to put a gerbil under the hood on a hamster wheel everyone else can just go pound sand.
