    few teaser pics of my new upcoming winter project, e30 FTW !

    I wanted to wait until it's all done and completed but I am just 2 excited to hold the news any longer ! The project has finally started and should be completed by the end of March. I am not going to bore you with what it looked like before (plane Jane e30 cabrio), here is how it looks now

    excuse the quality, most of the pics taken with cell phone camera

    old m20 motor out



    engine bay shaved and prepped







    car partially disassembled



    engine Bay painted Ferrari Red (the car will be painted the same color)







    Rear conversion to 5 lug completed (waiting for new cross drilled rotors)



    WAITING on few more parts for the front 5 lug conversion and big Brembo brakes

    Bilstein's own version of 'racing suspension'



    next step is Engine swap (waiting for few more parts)



    then the body work, enterior work, etc...

    it's going to be a long way from how it looked before to what I want it to look like...

    this is how it's all started -

    yeah, thanks, the color will be awesome on this car ! As I was on my way to the shop to take the above pics, this same color passed me on the highway, a true sign that I was correct in choosing what I chose !

I might actually do a jdm b16 swap(keep laughing when I'm putting down more HP/TQ than you) with triple ESC( electric supercharger newbs) megasqurit independent fuel management, GReddy boost controller and BOV. This setup is good for atleast 300WHP. My friends civic had the same setup.

    You can't see the firewall in an e30, it's covered by the plastic covers which cover the wiring. Even if I painted it, it would be invisible to the eye.
    Here is the pic of my e30 m3, this is what it looks like with the motor present

    You got some nice taste man. How about making a thread on that bike you have or get a bike to mod.
