    Excellent stuff on this, great to see swapping out of drive train taking place on today's cars with all their complicated electronic trickery. Some great fabrication and you are so fortunate to have such a talented welder close to hand!

    After just over a month i got the car back last saturday. Went back over to track and road and got trailered back

    [​IMG]

    Wiring all completed

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ECU mounted

    [​IMG]

    Have a problem with my race technology dash. Seems to have a firmware issue. Been sent away so hopefully will get it back next week

    [​IMG]

    Picked up a 1M exhaust from birmingham last sunday and trial fitted it. I had to cut off the end's that attach to the downpipes and use the E46 Flanges. All lines up ok so will fit it proper over the next week or so

    Drop me a line and I can chase up the DASH2 issue for you if needed. If you ever need any other help on it let me know. If you can send me some photos when it is done I would love to get it in the Race Technology newsletter. Fantastic job.

    Where do i start with this thing!!!


    I got to the point where i was a days work from starting it and then remembered from when i took it out the M3 that it had a misfire so decided to check everything before start up.

    Its then i realised why it had misfire


    [​IMG]

    Decided to stick a camera down the bores and although the crowns didn't look too bad they weren't great either so i done a compression test. Cylinders 2+3 come back low

    [​IMG]


    At that point i decided to strip the engine down before deciding what way to go with it

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I've decided i will probably fit JE piston's, standard rods, race bearings, and all ARP bolts. Just getting the funds together for the build at the moment though.


    Managed to get hold of a 1M bumper for cheap so i can run 265 section up front eventually.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Made a start on the rear's. already running 10j ET23 on the rear but now have spacers

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    Got hold of an 60l ATL fuel cell. I was going to mount it up where the boot was but decided against having the weight high up so chopped the rear bench away and got started on mounting it lower to help with handling.

    [​IMG]

    In-between all that i took the daily out to the ring for a few laps while i was out in Belguim :D

    [​IMG]


    Updates as and when, not looking to get it up and running until feb next year now though

    Unfortunately my friend offered me a track E46 M3 which i bought. This sat doing nothing as i lost all motivation once i had that. I then broke the M3 up to go travelling round SE Asia for a few months and got a M135i which i'm looking to track next year. Looking back at the pic's of this is making wish i finished it!!
