Looks like a laugh. Saw a pbmw mag a while back with a e46 coupe with a big chevy engine in it. A blue one in england somewhere. Looked epic. Must try and dig out the magazine.

My Ride: ///M
Definitely saw this car fly down 121st yesterday around 5ish....



My buddy lives on that block with an e60 m5.

Car sounds great.
Looks like a fun ride...curious if the car runs out of steam up top when you're pulling gears?

Harness took a week, there wasn't really any custom fabrication. Except for the intercooler piping and mounting which took a few days.

Yea I was on my way to 121 deli, pick up a pack of cigs. I see that e60 m5 all the time, used to see a Phoenix yellow e46 m3 there way back.

Thanks, I need to put a second resonator. It's a bit too loud cops always be on my ass.

Up top the car runs amazing. After 3000 rpm and boost kicks in, its no joke for a set of stock twins.

Will convert to single next year maybe a T88? ;] maybe some cams, and fuel.

What kind of exhaust setup are you currently running on that and what was the total amount it would run another fanatic to complete a swap like that?

Nice Vick!

When can I come by and hear that thing in person? I'm doing the S54 swap next month. I wish I would have seen this first.

Oh well... I could always add some boost later.

Thanks man, I'll be at the meet on January 6th at Flushing Meadows Park if you wanna see it in person.

Can't wait to see the s54 swap. Yup boost will make the s54 a monster.
