Good stuff.wish I knew how to fabricate. I would put a 5.3 in my e46 since they are so cheap and easy to work on. Good on gas too

Oh, I thought you were being a douche and suggesting he not "ruin" an E30 with a American engine. My bad, sorry. I read WAY too much into that.

Beaded up the pan







Got the correct headers



Ordered steering shaft solution


Got my wiring and relay/fuse setup

Starting the cam swap. I decided to go with a Texas Speed & Performance 228r cam, beehive springs and chromoly pushrods. Good for a 50hp gain.






This engine is so clean inside it's Crazy!

I must honestly say I was never a fan of the E30, but dam, yours is bad ass man. Love the wheels and tires on it. Goes perfect with the car. Not to mention the turbo, too dope.
