Building a 800whp 330xi, stay tuned for tips and tricks!

Hi guys!

Im building a new racecar/streetrace car based on a e36 330xi.

The drivelinge was recently sitting in this car:


That now looks like this after an accident:



Driveline is 330xi transfer case and M54b30, cp pistons, ppf rods, all new and balanced.

Boosted to 2.2 bar on e85 with an pt 6766.


Im gonna need ur help with suspension tips (ive read the sticky), wider fenderflares (similair to the ones avaible for e36) and im sure alot of other questions.

Stay tuned for awesomness.

MVH Erik

I'll first say good luck to you, should be a fun build !


One basic question: I wasn't aware that the M54B30 aluminum block could handle the pressure of anywhere near 800 WHP. What are you doing to solve any of these issues ?

Hi, thanks.

Nothing is done to the block. It's steel lined from factory and the actual cast of the block is extremely rigid compared to a m52b28 for example.

We have a few 800+ plus m54s here in Sweden and it seems to work just fine.

Mvh Erik

Who, or what company does the tuning for a project like this in Sweden ? And is it using the stock computer, or something aftermarket like a Motec ?

You have www.pure-pf.com and maxxtuning.se, psimotor is also very good!

I use VEMS ECU but there are several that can do the job, maxxecu for example, a new Swedish developed engine management system that's grown popular recently.

Vipec, link, aem infinity.

At first, I expected this to be one of those "Hey I'm gonna do a 1 billion HP build on my E46" thread that never gets updated, but wow... you've actually started lol. Subbed for more

The stock right side engine mount will not cut it in this application. I get less than a year out of mine with 200hp- you will need to upgrade or plan on replacing it monthly.
