    Turbo E36 round 3 V2

    guess ill make a build thread again for my car.

    Stock M52 with cutring head gasket and ARP head studs s52 cams.
    RK Tunes e85 115# tune.
    S366 with a 3.5" downpipe to 4" after manifold out back to Aero Turbine muffler.
    Car made 663WHP and 623ftq at 24psi, but boost controller is a bleed style so at 5500RPMs it dropped to 21psi or would have made over 700whp.

    Car worked for almost 2 years as is, but ive gotten into way more drag racing. Car now has 210mm Diff with Butter's built axles. I sold the euro 6 speed and got Perrys GM trans adapter plate and picked up a th400 as well as some spray. I also got rid of the stock DME and picked up a ms3pro and getting an obd2 jumper harness made.

    Now some pics of my junk.

    this is a before when i got it and how it sits today, besides the front RTS.

    then just a random bunch of pics.

    I only got one decent run in on wastegate which was 600 wheel. I ran a 7.2 @ 102mph with a 1.8 60 and no 2 step. I cut a low 1.6 60 but car shut off due to low fuel and starved the pump lol

    Why can't you keep the interior and have a cage? My car has a full interior minus the carpet. I ditched the carpet because it was heavy but there is no reason I couldn't put that back too. Only other thing I lost was the map pockets because they hit the door bars and I was too lazy to go around them.

    The bulkhead in the rear is right behind the arms on the seats. Was told that's where the cage needs to tie into the rear to be "safe"

    Running Otis's Rapid spool mani.

    Perry, this is the bulkhead on the e36. Granted, per NHRA I can bend the down bar and point it down the rear decklid and run it to the rear frame rail but was told it's nowhere near as strong as tieing it into the rear bulkhead.

    My biggest regret with my car was not going full retard. I should have stripped it, and shaved as much weight as possible. It easily could have gone 5.50s with just some weight out of it.

    And lets be honest, the nicest E36 interior is still garbage.

    Send them over to me for safe keeping, or trade for a skateboard.

    It's not graphed. Made 600 at 20psi made the 663 at 24psi. This is all on an untouched rk tunes base maps.

    I always create build threads and never follow through lol. Here is an update.

    I pulled all the interior out to fix a horrible wiring issue.

    20180204_162506_preview_zpsy4m1hzlw.jpeg

    After that I decided to go ahead and install a 10 point chromoly cage since everything was already out.

    20180304_142859_zps6jybxklw.jpg

    I ordered the gen x billet/bolted torque converter from ProTorque ( great guys).

    received_10160195507085314_zpsypkcn7ko.jpeg

    I ordered 4 of these fancy vanjen clamps to run as well as a tr1245 1000hp treadstone intercooler.

    received_2041088162801474_zpsd1glnztp.jpeg

    I also ordered a BMW 6 bolt CV to 1350 adapter and a chromoly th400 to 1350 slip yoke both made by sonnax.

    I received my obd2 pnp adapter for my ms3pro, I will be running 1600cc injectors on the car as well.

    I also ordered the cx racing t56 trans mount for the e36. Derek ran the same with his th400 and it has adjustment slots for alignment so we are thinking it'll work fine.
