RHD M54 B30 build

some of you may already know but i have been posting over on the bimmerboost forum for the past year now (if any of you want to catch up with what iv done so far heres the link; (http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthrea...30-turbo-build ).
i wont be posting all the pictures i have now as there is a collection of 250 pictures.

I have now decided to post in both this forum and the Bimmerboost, hopefully it may help people out with the way i decided to mount my turbo, especially if there car is right hand drive.

The turbo is a GT3076R (refurbished)
i have decided to remove the air con pump, this is because in the UK we dont get many 'hot' days.

here are some pictures and if any of you have any questions, please ask away._a_

Looking good! Whats the car going to be used for track or daily? Looking at the turbo height will you still need to use an oil scavenge pump?Will you be using standard management?

Cheers,Rick

The car will be used on the weekend or odd commute to work and I will be going to the odd track day with it.
Yes I am planning on using a scavenge pump.
And yes I will be using the stock dme. Alex (hobbit) has very kindly agreed to help me when I get closer to completion. Iv never worked on the software side of things in the past so I'm really keen on learning this.

Cheers
Tom

I am surprised that you are not just going top mount, the size turbo you are using has been used top mount on RHD cars, woud save you the hassle of making an exhaust manifold. Also wondering why you would need a scavenge pump, I have mounted my turbo in the same location and the oil drain is much higher than the oil level in the sump.

I was always going to fabricate my own manifold anyway as I'm using some exhaust flanges I have designed and are in the process of being manufactured by myself iv attached a photo of this.
I personally choose to mount it here to keep things neat and tidy.
If I'm honest I'm 50/50 with the scavenge pump. Yes it high enough, but as you know, the m54 oil pan at the front is very shallow, and I'm not sure I can get a fitting to fit here. I know one will fit to the rear of the oil pan but I believe the return pipe may not have a steep enough angle to exhaust the oil fast enough. Even if I could get a fitting into the shallow part if the oil pan, would I be right in thinking the windage from the crank could cause flow problems with it being so close? As I say, I'm not sure. I could probably put some baffles around the oil return to prevent any wind causing a problem. Maybe?

Thanks, it's always good to get feedback

Iv recently been rebuilding the m3 rear calipers I got with the axle I bought recently. 3 hrs work per caliper.... I need to find access to a sand blaster I think!

I'm also cleaning down the power steering rack and fitting some AN adapters ready for the electric power steering pump.

And hopefully this weekend I might be doing some welding to the cracked rear subframe and making up a support unit for it in the boot. I'll see how that goes through

i dont have much of an update really, iv been working on a few little bits as i've been really busy.
but here's a quick run down of what iv been doing...

I've fitted an oil catch can.
the power steering rack has been cleaned up and new lines fitted.
i've undersealed the majority of the car.

i have also now received all the material i need to make some reinforcement plates and also construct a subframe support unit in the boot.

once i have welded in the plates and support unit, i will post all the pictures.

UPDATE!:

its not quite as much as I would have liked to of covered, but here's what iv been upto...

The power steering rack has been cleaned up with some AN adapters fitted for the electric power steering pump.


The oil catch can has been fitted to the car, for anyone wanting to connect to the cam cover like i have, all you need to do it clean the inside of the port on the cover.. ALOT. rough it up with a dremel then using an epoxy resin, glue in an 5/8" NPT to AN-10 (can be smaller) adapter to it. use tape to hold it central until the epoxy sets.
the catch can can easily be drained by simply removing the front of the passengers side mudguard.


The rear subframe support unit/brace has now been finished, I just need to fabricate the mounts the will attach to the top of the rear dampers and also to the brace.
the support brace will bolt through the subframe of the car, to do this I've ordered x2 high tensile (grade 12.9) M12 x 1.5mm threaded bar that are 230mm in length.


you can see on one of the pictures where I have drilled through the mounting holes of the car, this is where the stud will come through. you can also see where work the work has been done to the car, previously to my ownership.

Sweet. Any more pics of how you mounts your fuel pressure regulator and vacuum block/hoses?

Thanks

Hope these help! all I did was make a bracket that fixes to the side of the intake manifold, there are tapped holes here you can use, as for the vacuum manifold I still haven't got around to fixing it to anything yet, but I'm hoping, where it is now is should be where it will be.

Nice job fabbing up that mount, looks great! I currently have my aftermarket regulator mounted under the car in the driveshaft tunnel but eventually want to move it under the hood. Thanks

Thanks! yeah I would move it to under the hood, if it fails it will make it much easier to sort out or if it it is an adjustable regulator like mine, the ingress of dirt/mud/water from it being in the driveshaft tunnel might make it difficult to adjust in the future. Your build is coming along nicely too

Quick update;

iv just bought the majority of the components for the fuelling system, the last parts that I ordered will arrive today.

Iv ordered the following;
2 litre swirl pot
5 metre of AN-6 hose (probably need more)
3 90 deg AN-6 bulkhead fittings with nuts
4 AN-6 straight fittings
2 180 Deg AN-6 fittings
4 90 deg AN-6 fittings
and a bunch of 3/8"npt to AN-6 adapters for the swirl pot.

im going to be fitting the swirl pot, fuel filter and high flow fuel pump in the wheel well. the stock fuel pump will supply to the swirl pot with a overflow on the swirl pot going directly back into the fuel tank.
the high flow pump will supply the engine.

i will post once its all fitted.

I have now received the swirl pot for the car and have started to position it in the car along with the fuel filter and eventually the fuel pump. The swirl pot may one day be used as part of a twin pump setup.... But we will see.

On the fuel tank iv also connected the output to a an6 fitting.

Iv also started machining the exhaust flanges for my tubular system I will be fabricating. Coming along nicely!
