Post subject: S54 in my E30 M3..... its started

Well after alot of thought I have started to get the parts needed to put an S54 into my 89 M3. Since the car has spent the last two years being restored it was time for a motor. I had taken the stock S14 out when the car was taked down to a bare shell for paint, and taken it apart to rebuild. While the motor was in good shape the rebuild would have run around 10k so the S14 was sold off and now I'm going with a S54. Just sent the front subframe to be modified, and the new Steering link, Booster less MC, and other parts have been ordered. I hope to have the car completly done for BMW CCA Octoberfest next Aug. in Cali. SO pics info will come as parts come in....

Ya I had thought about an S52 but the price difference vs the HP made it a no brainer

I was surprised that it wasn't a bigger difference but the rev range is just sexy. Custom exhaust with no rasp.....grrrr

Did you send the cross member to Tiny T (Arc Asylum)?

Ys Tiny T is great, he's doing the subframe, tranny mount, oil pan, and the headers if he gets the prototype done. Castro Motorsport will do the tunning and intake

Having worked for Castro in the past and seeing several projects he's turned out, I can assure you that you are in good hands. Chris is a wizard with cars. Smile

Here are some photos of the suspension parts I ordered from Ireland Engneering and my fully rebuilt trailing arms. Here are a few photos of the car as she sits right now and the S54 beast waiting to go in. TinyT just sent my Subframe, Oilpan, and 6 speed tranny mount today so I'll have photos up soon.
