Bought my first BMW in early 2015, it was a fairly standard 320i that was converted to manual and was put on HR springs and KYB shocks with a set of replica volk wheels

Used this car as my daily for about a year and did a few things to it, had plans for it but at the time i was driving it every day and it served its purpose well

Put some TD144s on it had a problem with the tyres on them changed them down a sidewall thickness and put a bit of stretch and they worked well

also put on a Grip Royal steering wheel on to replace the factory wheel it had 

and that was about the extent of the "mods" i had done to the car until the front cross member gave out on me and broke the small tab that bolts the sway bar bracket on. So at that point i decided to it was time for a M20B25 upgrade "might as well change the engine while i'm fixing this front cross member" I said and from there things spiralled out of control and what started as a 2.5 swap has now turned into a M20B25 stroker turbo build 

so the motor was pulled

stripped everything out of the engine bay and shaved off unnecessary brackets for a nice clean look

Braided clutch, fuel and brake lines being installed (some shown)
Brand new Fenix radiator

E36 steering rack and custom shaft

wanted to go Z3 but best option at the time was e36 so went with that

 

 

During all of that i picked up a used M20B25 from Auckland 

came from a 89 vert with 180000 ks on it but engine ran fine so guess it made sense to rebuild it lol
In went a 2.7 Stroker kit

2.7 crank 

135mm rods 

M50???? pistons can't remember what they came from now

engine was sent to Cambridge Engine Services for cleaning and checking 
all was good so in it all went using OEM bearings, rings and gaskets down the bottom

Head was ported and polished by Jim at same shop

Bolted together with an Elring HG (2mm) and cap screws

head fitted with brand new valve springs and retainers, a reground 272 cam, HD rockers and oversized eccentrics

Just currently needing a timing belt and tensioner which i'll pick up this week

couldn't resist test fitting the manifolds and turbo when it was all torqued down lol

 

won't be running it with the turbo straight away as it will be easier to run the motor in on the factory ECU that way i'll have the cam run in and the rings will seal really well before boost is added which will be courtesy of a Sinco manifold, front facing plenum and Master Power MPR-494

shipped for $700 from Evan at SpeedFactor will definitely be able to handle the power I'm expecting to make

will be updating this build very soon 

for now peace

Awesome build! Definitely following. Good stuff putting AN lines throughout. Curious to hear your thoughts on that clutch once it's in there. I've got the same one sitting here. Also, that manifold - does the oil filter need to be relocated?

Thanks man, it's probably gonna be a bit of a pain to use in traffic but I'm sure I'll get used to it. Manifold clears the filter but I'll relocate it anyway to tee in oil pressure gauge and also make it easier to change the filter come service times

Got fuel pump in today using AEM 320lph in tank I've heard they're fairly new on the market but they seem capable and well priced 

 

IMG_3971.thumb.JPG.79c07ed82914ba0fcc18f8a417eb515c.JPG

 

Install is pretty straight forward comes with strainer thing, small adapter hose, wires and all the clips needed to put it in minus the cable ties I used to hold it tight 

 

IMG_3972.thumb.JPG.f4e1c0bdc7540294a528f8b3ebfa22ca.JPG

 

Chucked in a new pump o ring too because old one was a tad cracked

 

IMG_3973.thumb.JPG.2270cae2f236a18390695d917db16a7d.JPG

 

Hooked up the main hose has a swivel on the end with a hose clamp hidden 

 

IMG_3977.thumb.JPG.d566cd6c76199db956b693596913d887.JPG

 

Also got fuel lab filter hooked up, used a small bracket to bolt the filter to the where the tank bolts to the rest of the car. 

 

Had to use a 120 degree fitting to get the hose to line up down the rest of the car so I could use the factory clips to tuck the fuel hoses up in the channels 

looks a bit spaghetti under there at the moment and it may need attention when I go for cert but it's pretty sturdy for now 

 

IMG_3984.thumb.JPG.cf1fbb30cbb6f47eeb073f2536bb9c82.JPG

 

with the factory fuel filter panel it looks real tidy 

 

IMG_3981.thumb.JPG.ec697ed9449d8f4f272fe132ed675120.JPG

 

using all the factory clip points for the fuel and brake hoses with cable ties to keep them spaced 

I had Chase Bays make me up a copy of all the hoses he is using on his m54 swapped e30 cost about $900 shipped for all fuel lines and fittings up to the firewall, a fuel lab filter and rear brake lines all the way from the firewall to the Flexi lines at the rear calipers. May have been able to do it cheaper locally but don't get a lot of time off work during business hours so was easier to go with something a little more "kit set" for this

Isn't that steering rack adapter gonna be a prick to get the downpipe around?

I would be concerned over using cable ties to hold the fuel pump in place. Cable ties will deteriorate in a petrol environment . I would have used 2 stainless steel hose clips (Wurth variety)

I think it should be okay if not i can always take it out and chuck it in a lathe and turn some of it down

to be honest i think the fuel pump would need replacing before the cable ties do

Got some work done on the motor today in preparation for it going back in the car tomorrow, just stuff that would be easier doing whilst it's out 

 

IMG_4028.thumb.JPG.fc7b0b41c3482c868a7f021272b09dfe.JPG

 

first was was the timing belt and tensioner

im running a gates belt and brand new tensioner, spring and pin seemed to be perfectly fine so was just re used as the tensioner doesn't actually come with them

 

Then was torquing up the front crank bolt, for this I made a tool to bolt to the back of the crank and jam on the floor to keep the rotating assembly from.. well.. rotating..

 

IMG_4031.thumb.JPG.f5762737f51836bdac7cc2bf811355ad.JPG 

 

IMG_4033.thumb.JPG.c81655faf291e5d8e2898976344bc97f.JPG

 

the tool was made from a spare flywheel plate washer and a long bit of steel welded together 

pretty simple but makes it very easy 

 

IMG_4030.thumb.JPG.1f4d3baa2be8c381df4caaa2af43e2bb.JPG

 

then i greased the front bolt and washer for an accurate reading and put a very big torque wrench on the front IMG_4034.thumb.JPG.75977c38773794d8eb2a6084f92b03da.JPG

 

easy peasy 

 

motor goes in tomorrow so will have have lots of photos of that to come will hopefully post that tomorrow night

Managed to get quite a bit done today 

first went and picked up engine crane from a mate (thanks Josh), which somehow fit in the back of the my daily E30 
then engine off the stand to do the flywheel clutch and gearbox 

20273432_10211220364957276_737310493_o.thumb.jpg.c5819f25ca6779807ff46c515d3e90f9.jpg

 

I had the flywheel resurfaced at Waikato clutch and Brake and then lightened at Cambridge Engine Services, not a huge fan of ridiculously light flywheels so not a lot was taken off the flywheel rear side 

 

20273025_10211220364237258_1831494354_o.thumb.jpg.85fab837f5e9d7828aecf44dc3c806d6.jpg

Brand new pilot bearing that came with the spec clutch kit punched in with a socket

Spec 6 puk clutch and pressure plate were bolted up with thanks to Kerry at Mosen Euro Parts for the spare pressure plate bolts late friday afternoon , probably would of had to put off working on the car for a week or two waiting for brand new ones from germany 

20314699_10211220362677219_327004661_o.thumb.jpg.8f1f661c7be895f0db7392a43648d7bb.jpg

then gearbox was bolted up with brand new thrust bearing included in spec clutch kit and slave cylinder from Gavin at Euro Italian along with pretty much every nut bolt gasket and o ring on the car big thanks to him

After a few swear words we got it in (not too difficult being the stock motor really) 
thanks to my lovely girlfriend for her help operating the crane whilst i wrestled with the motor 


heaps more updates to come now as there's plenty to be done on the car now that the motor and gearbox are in for now though time for beers

Have just been tinkering with a few odds and ends for now (starter in, intake manifold on, timing covers, thermostat housing and cleaning the interior carpet) and was wondering if anyone knew what the best way would be to blank off the turbo drain plug in the sump temporarily while a run in the motor n/a? I have tried googling a few things but nothing really comes up I might have to get someone to make something up 

 

anyway here's some pics

Also needed a motor rebuild fix so am starting on my new 2.7 m20 build for my daily 

image.thumb.jpg.7c84a78f5f5b2e28d7575370848209a5.jpg

so have this 2.7 bottom end to use with another 885 head am wondering if I should make another thread for that build however progress might be a little slow on it as I really need to get my turbo build running 

pics of the daily

standard 320i auto (fairly) soon to be 2.7 manual 

 

also have my 2.0l table build, I have a stripped m20b20 block which I'm converting to a coffee table for the man cave, just need to get it acid dipped and then have some glass made up for it $60 it cost me from mosen with a few extra spare parts attached to it

For the oil feed, could you just use a fitting with the end welded closed?

Decided it's time to get cracking with some of the light rust on the car seeing as I'm waiting for parts so don't have a too much to do on it right now, I've known about the rust for a while but have been too busy to get round to it.

 

the plan is to also straighten the rails(?) underneath the car where previous owners/mechanics etc have used it as a jacking point which has crumpled it in 

 

IMG_4102.thumb.JPG.8323644a3e2526b4fa116fcf4bd0f058.JPG

 

The guard also have the same problem and some small amounts of rust developing 

 

IMG_4104.thumb.JPG.b48f263371f52e03647430c4d2dd32e9.JPG

 

im most likely gonna be cleaning out and repainting/sealing  the whole inside of the guard area in the next week and also straightening, painting and sealing the rail(?) on the both sides. Then I can work on the rust cause by the leaky tail light lol :D lots of fun ahead of me

Used this car as my daily for about a year and did a few things to it, had plans for it but at the time i was driving it every day and it served its purpose well

Put some TD144s on it had a problem with the tyres on them changed them down a sidewall thickness and put a bit of stretch and they worked well

also put on a Grip Royal steering wheel on to replace the factory wheel it had 

and that was about the extent of the "mods" i had done to the car until the front cross member gave out on me and broke the small tab that bolts the sway bar bracket on. So at that point i decided to it was time for a M20B25 upgrade "might as well change the engine while i'm fixing this front cross member" I said and from there things spiralled out of control and what started as a 2.5 swap has now turned into a M20B25 stroker turbo build 

so the motor was pulled

stripped everything out of the engine bay and shaved off unnecessary brackets for a nice clean look

During all of that i picked up a used M20B25 from Auckland 

came from a 89 vert with 180000 ks on it but engine ran fine so guess it made sense to rebuild it lol
In went a 2.7 Stroker kit

Just currently needing a timing belt and tensioner which i'll pick up this week

couldn't resist test fitting the manifolds and turbo when it was all torqued down lol

 

won't be running it with the turbo straight away as it will be easier to run the motor in on the factory ECU that way i'll have the cam run in and the rings will seal really well before boost is added which will be courtesy of a Sinco manifold, front facing plenum and Master Power MPR-494

they're alpina sport seats, the sport seats that came in e30s were apparently the only real recaro seats they came with and were quite rare and the alpina trim even rarer. i bought them off an old guy from Auckland, he said they were out of his e21 which i think also came with the sport seats
