Starting the build with a low mileage 3.0l M54 from an 05' 330. Here's some pictures pre-machine shop of the motor broken down. Block was bored/honed for pistons, line honed for Raceware main studs, timeserts added, and decked. Head was broken down, valves and seats cleaned, recut, lapped, reinstalled with new valve seals, and decked

The transmission has been built and already in the car for about 5k miles. The car was previosuly turbo'd by another shop, or an attempt at being turbo'd, which failed horribly. The customer came to us to remove all the old parts and motor, and replace it with what should be there, done exactly the right way. As I said, I've used Level 10 a few times and had no issues, nor does this particular tranny in the car now

Indeed! Just what the customer is looking for!

Tuned on the stock DME by someone you and I spoke about recently

Or it could be tuned on the stock DME like I said ... I wouldn't list something if it wasn't what was happening. This car WILL NOT be seeing any type of aftermarket ECU.



Thanks for all the comments so far, should be starting assembly of the motor next week!

And for those curious about power, the customer asked for 400whp, we're shooting for near 500whp with the touch of a button

My Ride: slower than yours
Can I just get the level 9 tranny? Not sure I'm ready for double digit trannies yet.

Sweet build.
