Nice that will help with weight distribution as well if you plan on throwing a V8 up front.

I'll have to get with him about that, I'm sure they serve some purpose.

I have big plans for that logo bro, lots and lots of advertisement is all I'll say. Can I make it black though?

Yea that's one thing i've been worrying about, the car will literally be a tin can with a huge front end load. I wonder what kind of spring rates i'm going to have to run up front to keep the rake minimal..

There was an e30 at Hallett with an LS1 in it, freaking crazy. I'll see if I can dig up any info on it, may help.

That's amaaaaaaaaaazing. That's a bit much for a shell IMO though. Anywho, i'm looking for a 2 door.

What about drive shaft, differential, and rear tires? LSD would be nice and a a huge luxury if you want to auto x or just do a quick launch IMO, takes your car to the next level. Gonna want to run the widest rear tires possible too.

Tremec TKO ftw

Those will probably have to be custom made, depends on how much previous info I can find about it. The engine swap will be last on the list, depending on what condition the car is in when I buy it.

LSD is a must for a car that will be putting down that kind of raw torque, I wouldn't have anything less.

I can't get too ahead of myself though, Have to find the right car first.

That torque and such little weight, thats a big factor considering friction / traction / grip is so closely related to weight.

318is comes from the factory with 4.10lsd rear end. Try to find a non sunroof shell if you can manage!

Wow, i will add that to the list. So far i've been looking at the 325i/e simply for the fact that i'll have an i-6 till I swap it.

Not too worried about sunroof or not, that can be hacked out easily.

If you find the right car then just worry about the diff later. I bet an E30 318 diff would go into an e30 with a bigger engine

That's why I say I don't want to get ahead of myself, the power/drivetrain mods will be coming last so I don't want to get all clouded up thinking about it now.

Like I said, first will be extreme interior stripping, then some GC coils, and probably a rattle can paint job or something.
