My Ride: M54B30 E36 ;)
Hellrot E36 with M54 on e85 + Stlye 93

Picked this up a few months ago



Had different plans for it but after an lsd install and shenanigans into my coupe led to this.





snapped the halfshaft at the hub and then the rest of the axle destroyed itself



tried everything to get it to work and the part of the shaft was stuck in the trailing arm and not coming out at all. (also destroyed the rental tool to pull the halfshaft out, and destroyed the bearing as well)

I had enough with the car so the next day I got to work.



dropped the exhaust



yes Im doing my engine + trans swap in the street



pulled the engine and trans on the 325i and cleared the engine bay. This is it drying



degreased the engine and tried to tuck most of the wires.



fitted an m50 intake manifold to the m54b30



got my muffler in the mail!



I liked the way my old exhaust sounded on the white car but I didnt want to go with the quad's again.

So I ordered the 3inch in and dual 3inch tips vibrant muffler and got it welded to the old midpipe I had with the stock obd2 resonators (with the cats cut out) painted It black with the high temp paint



painted the lowers black and got her registered










then I put on the ds2's and dropped it a little









rode around on the ds2 for a while and then I decided to go out of the ordinary and try something new.

18x8 et 24 with no fender roll

Can you go into more detail on the m50 intake manifold and how that mated with the m54 both mechanically and tuning wise

I needed to make a block off plate for the holes on the head but other than that it was straight forwad, pulls much better up top and the e85 regained my lost low end tq

Looks great! I liked it best on the DSII's, but that's just me. Did you tuck the engine bay? Any pics of that?

It looks great! I'd raise it a bit. The DS2s looked really nice, but so do the new wheels, just in a different way.

For some reason the coupe pulled off the zhp wheels but the sedan just didn't.
