    Those Mpars are pretty incredible in person.

    Haven't visited in a while given that my 01 was totaled on 19th and Wedgewood about 2 weeks ago, details if you guys care

    Anyways, I have been on the lookout for another Bimmer, preferably e46 and ran across this ZHP.

    Any thoughts, I have already seen it once and am seriously considering it. If anyone has any recommendations where to get a PPI in Murfreesboro, I would REALLY appreciate it.

    Looks pretty nice. Not many pics or details about it. 6 speeds are very nice. I'd say go drive it.

    Euro fix might be a good place to call and see what they can do for an inspection

    Go for it! Always room for more e36 5.0s. Mine isn't finished yet though....building the engine right now and I keep adding to the project as well as taking on an old1 s52 swap project. I'm overwhelmed for the time being. Haha

    I don't have an E36, mine is an E38. A 5.0 still sounds interesting because of the reliability and ease of getting a lot of power out of. I've put 5.0s in Miatas and 350s in a lot of foreign cars, but never messed with a Bimmer and making everything (stock gauges and such) get along together. For. As long as many cars as I've worked on, I'm fairly inexperienced on BMWs. I've been trying to find different cam profiles and Supercharger setups for the 4.4, but have yet to come up with anything. If it retains the 4.4, I at least want to do the 6speed conversion whenever the tranny decides to go south.

    Also, if I can find the right tranny bell housing for my houseboat, the motor might be going there, though I doubt I could find the right marine exhaust manifold for the GT40 heads.

    Also I see your right down the road in Hartsville, do you ever come out to Shady Cove?

    That should contain more information. Drove it today. High mileage but it's a fun car.

    Also took it to Ray's Automotive in Murfreesboro for PPI. It certainly needs some love.

    Interested in a swap for some BBS RS GT's. Black Chrome centers with a shiny lip. Staggered - 18x8 and 18x9. Not sure of the offset but they have 10mm spacers.
    representative photo...

    I've also got some Breyton Magics I would be consider trading....17" all 4....will need adapter rings.

    Just buy an e36 for your 302. Haha.......I have heard of shady cove but not been there. I used to go to Dale Hollow quite a bit though.

    Hmm...Yea I wouldn't mind trading for the RS GT's.

    Here's a quick link to mine with pics of each wheel. http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum...-17x8-amp-17x9

    Do you happen to have any pics of yours?

    If the trade between you guys does not work out, I might possibly be interested in buying the 17s. I've got a possible line on some 19" mpars in trade for my wheels and a little cash, but I really really don't want wheels that big on my car.

    OK, we can see how this works out. I'd rather sell but I'm open to whatever. I'll see what 91e34m5 thinks.

    I was away from the house all day today. I'll try and send you some shots and description tomorrow if weather permits. They are on the 8 right now. Do your wheels have tires?

    Well I bought some Style 19's for $400, and have spent a lot of time refinishing the lips. Definitely worth my time. What do you guys think?


    I did my valve covers too. I had them powder coated. They came out pretty good also.

    Some Places remain unknown because no one has ventured forth. Others remain so because no one has ever come back...............
