Hey all, Wanting to purchase an E36 M42B18 Engine Package, preferably with all electrics and ancillaries, I could also be interested in an M44B19 engine package also but would prefer a complete M42B18. Ideally wanting to spend no more than $450 on a low mileage engine (with proof) although I'm not overly concerned on mileage. I'm not interested in any engines with a blown head gasket, previous overheating or other associated issues. Located in Napier, Hawkes Bay. Happy to pay for shipping although anywhere within 3 hour travel would be highly convenient. Contact number: 0212034089, I'm not overly active on the forums. Thanks Richard
I've put super low springs in my E30 which has brought it down to a reasonable height....however, my sump now sits unprotected in a horribly vulnerable spot. The U.S sites I've seen suggest using washers/bushes of some kind or other to raise the engine which sounds like a terrible idea to me. Has anyone come across any sort of custom sump or solution to get these things higher?
Recently became the proud new owner of a particular brilliantrot e30 e318is (+turbo). When I bought it, the diff was making noise, the clutch was (and still is) slipping due to a cheap replacement, the short shift lever was grinding on the driveshaft and it failed a warrant due to the missing highbeam. I've since fixed (or had fixed) all but the clutch and just on the hunt for a decent road clutch that'll take the power it's putting out. I believe the motor was done by Kayne Barrie (or one of his apprentices) in '03 and has been through a few owners in and around Auckland. Here for the knowledge and the know-how that graces these forums and hopefully attend a few meets. Sorry for the shitty quality I-phone photos.
