    M3AN E36 M3 PLOG (Project Log)

    i think the lip is quite cool to have from a collectors point of view but it looks a little over the top for a street car... but if you're making copies i'd definately be interested! i much prefer the lip + splitters look you have in your signature

    well my order arrived super quick, very happy 😜😉 pretty slick for 90usd shipped. took 5 days to get here So im guessing 'cause they are from 'murica the passenger side goes on the drivers side? or do the slots actually point backwards?

    Oh wow i hope this stuff actually ships out! So i jumped on the brake rotor bandwagon and snapped up a set of these: Power Stop EBR419XPR Front Evolution Drilled & Slotted Rotor Pair But when i went to find the matching rear rotor set they wouldnt ship to nz 😢. So i found these for the rears: ACDelco 18A1579 Specialty Performance Rear Passenger Side Disc Brake Rotor Assembly ACDelco 18A1578 Specialty Performance Rear Driver Side Disc Brake Rotor Assembly Not exactly a big brake kit but they should be all i need for a brake upgrade... Ill source new pads and lines locally.

    Help Please - E36 328i with 325i motor

    if installing an older non-ews motor into an ews car it will only fire the cylinders if one of the wires is cut on the round 25 pin connector (you also need the dme from the older engine) From an old post of mine:

    My new car - yet another e36 328i

    Im not worried about the torque loss at this stage, a supercharger will fix that 😜. Need more airflow for my boosting intentions, thats why im putting the m50 manifold on. I have fully prepared myself for the change in torque / hp, read a lot of forum posts, bought a couple of books which detail the mod. I do agree it will be less drivable in the city, sticking to speed limits etc; but i really want to build it to see what it can do on track and passing lanes 😉
  9. estima sc14 superchargers can be fitted quite neatly on the intake side of the engine, theres a local (nz) guy that does a full bolt on kit good for 5-6 pound. Thats the route im looking at going. You could probably use an oil distribution block for oil feed, i bought one from rally road to run pressure and temp gauges. I think the rally road oil distribution block is curretly on sale, its a good quality part.

    My new car - yet another e36 328i

    Pretty sure all i need is manifold, but ive seen tutorials using the mounting bars and other wee bits for the swap. From what i've read and have been told, the adaptive fuel mapping in the dme will adjust itself to minor modifications like this. You just need to reset the dme's current memory by shorting the battery leads with battery removed for 30+ mins, after that it will readapt over the next few days to get the mixture right.

    My new car - yet another e36 328i

    Some packages arrived today, its like christmas 😄 Kassel performance m50 manifold kit and parts to delete asc from pelican, Also pictured is new metal impeller water pump and thermostat housing. My next order will be from beisansystems, i promise 😋. Im trying to replace as much as i can before the car hits 200,000km, its sitting at 199,6XX right now.
  12. Need door handle assembly with lock removed or with lock & key (from what i've read i need the key to remove the lock barrel and swap in my lock barrel.) Part is required for compact, sedan will work, unsure about other models but from what ive seen they are the same.

    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    Looks about the same size as the one i patched. First drain oil, i used an air compressor to blow all the oil out of the sump. Then i hit the area with a dremel to score the surface and give the epoxy something to adhere to, i grooved the crack line very slightly so it would fill and hold. Mix and apply epoxy; then to be extra sure it would hold i repeated the dremel step around and over the dry epoxy and put another layer of epoxy over it. Mine has held out for over 6 years now, no oil drips.

    How bad? i've had moderate success using permatex cold weld epoxy to temporarily patch a small sump crack (overtightened sump plug cracked along the bottom of the sump)

    We did it for the laughs but its seriously a part of her car now. (makes me cringe a little inside, its my old car 😩)
