Forged pistons with high compression rings are cheaper than OEM. Finding out what exactly blew is still the best route. Could be a relatively simple fix.

Ok so all the parts have arrived there has been many extra purchases since I last updated such as Stoptech BBK 4 piston on the front with stoptech race pads on the rears with goodrich hoses for the rear also. All the parts including ECU have arrived so it is just a matter of getting the Engine out, the subframe dropped and all the new shiny pieces to be put back together..
Now this time im letting my mechanic do the work as I dont have time with Final Year Mechanical Engineering Exams to concentrate on. (Im using my cheesy wedding band to fund all these parts!!! Dont judge it pays the bills haha!)

He hasnt got the engine out as between the two of us we spent the last month getting my e30 road legal and through the NCT (This is the Irish National Car Test which is the equivalent of the UK MOT or SMOG tests in America). Its working like a charm at the moment, got my new LSD in there and all!!

Anyway any one have torque specs for the new pulley on the supercharger?
Also I cant remember the supercharger oil, Its something like 10W60 Castrol is it? Any particular Brand of Castrol or is there a specific one?
As for selling my old injectors from the ESS TS2 b25 is there a market for this? What cc are they etc?
I also have the belt and pulley but I doubt these would sell..

Ill try keep the rest of this thread pic heavy as it'll look good having engine out and swapping all the parts I need along with subframe reinforcement and BBK!!

I also just rang insurance company to declare all my modifications and it has been escalated to some high up management guys.
In Ireland there is NO and I mean NO insurance company that will touch a turbo or supercharger modification. So I am just waiting to hear back from them to see what ridiculous quote they throw at me or just plain out refusal.
If it is a refusal I can contact the Irish Insurance Federation and they are required to get me a quote no matter how high.. The standard for some *** Imports is roughly 3500 euro a year. Thats not including my road tax of 1100 euro a year on the 325... Now the m3 sounds like 'as is said in Ireland' " cheap as chips"..

For Twinscrew oil, you can use the Castrol GTX 10W60, same as the S54 uses. I bought a litre from dealership, which is way too much, as the s/c needs around 130ml if I remember correct.

Ok so its been quite awhile since the engine actually went but the new engine is now in, just needs exhaust manifolds to be attached and it is ready to fire up so hopefully in the next few days. The mechanic is a self employed owner of the business and is the only mechanic which is the reason for the slow pace for updates but I am hoping to have the 330 engine with the ESS TS2 up and running in the next 2-3 days!

Then I am just waiting for him to do the turner motorsport subframe reinforcement and the stoptech BBK.. Anyone have an estimated time for these two installations?

Thats good to know, So I can set aside roughly a week for the mechanic to do this as he has other cars too.. Is a BBK installation as complicated? I would imagine its a straightforward swap with draining brake fluid and filling it up again and bleeding etc? If he takes too long with the subframe I may do this myself..
Is it much harder than an ESS TS2 installation?

Don't know about the brakes. I didn't install the reinforcement kit myself because I can't weld.
Aside from welding it's pretty easy to do.
