  • E30 M3 Sport Evolution from Finland

    Almost 10 years in the forum, time to introduce my car. It was 2006 when the dream of my own E30 M3 came true. Nearly 15 years I was planning this thing. Now that I have owned the car for 10 years, it is time to tell those years. The first three years I enjoy just driving. However kilometers did not come to very much, about 1000 km in a year. Every time when I wash the car , my eyes found those hundreds of stone chips, a couple of parking dents etc. Altough, the car was good. As good as 140tkm driven can be. Everything works perfectly. But something just weighed in my mind. However, the decision was easy. I wanted a car like-new condition. In the end, it takes seven long years.

    At the same time, when the body was painting. It was time to get some new parts.
    New block, crankshaft, camshafts, valves, springs, cylinder head, conrods, pistons, clutch, gearbox, differential, drive shafts, fuel tank, hood, doors, bumbers, spoilers, brakes, exhaust system and many more. Almost everything is new. Body, interior and little else are old.

              LOL,,, I agree 1005.
              I had to re-read the original post, I thought the first pic "was" the finished product, if thats what he started with I can't wait to see the final result.

                  At the same time, when the body was painting, started the engine assembly. First, of course, careful washing and cleaning.





                  So got to install the first parts. Long way to go before the engine is running

                        Yikes, the squirters alone are over $325USD each.

                        I really pays off taking pictures of everything especially when you wake up in the middle of the night wondering if the rod cap is installed in the right location. Keep up the flow of pictures.

                          Cover with gasket, eye bearing, feltring, covering plate and cap. Also flywheel and new bolts.






                          Conrods and pistons.





                          Checking the clearance before final assembly.

                              The next step was a head. Thorough cleaning.



                              Looks good.
