This is Sofie- Now w/ 5 lug and MT-2!

Anyone remember my old cabby? The E30 I finally bought after 600+ on E30tech without having an E30?

Well if not, take a look at my old thread: http://www.e30tech.com/forum/showthread.php?t=95987

This is Sofie, a 10/90 M42 vert that's traveled 132k in her life.



I bought her as a shell and have since put her back together for the most part.

This is Mr. M3, he was so kind to donate a 70k S50. (The big thing Sofie craves)








Unfortunately sitting around awhile with no hood in South Texas weather does take some toll.





The S50 was pulled and loaded up for its trip home.



Thanks to Mr. M3 again!



And what's this? Some weird numbers on a box in a different language. Wonder what this could be....









Oh a brand spanking new early model E28 520i flywheel, 13.6 #'s BTW and no shaving required. :)

Matching shorter flywheel bolts too





Ireland Engineering BBK



That's a 14' BBS RA for comparison.

The S50 home safe and sound, let the fun begin. :o

Valve cover off for inspection!

No gunk to speak of, chain is nice and tight, no wear on the sprockets, and no oil leaking past into the spark plug hole.












And this is the muffler I also got for free.

It's off of an e39 540i that was sporting ACS everything. Worst case if we can't get it to fit, we can sell it. It was $1200 new. :S

I'm ordering new EVERYTHING, here's some of the part numbers needed to do so. This is about 20% of the part numbers I need so far. x-x




I'm post this list up later for others to use once I'm done with it.

Well that was expensive,




A grand total of 97 part numbers ordered. The largest single order my dealership has ever had. Previously held by a Porsche owner with 95.

12 Pages of refreshing goodness.



The transmission, oil pan + etc, E36 M3 brake master cylinder, IX booster, and driveshaft will be on a palette on their way from California by Monday.

The 413 DME should be here Monday and the 1991 325i cabrio body wiring harness should get here from Canada in a few weeks. As for what I'm doing with that will be a secret for now.

And I'll be ordering the actual swap materials sometime tonight.

There's more than one.

The yard threw them in as well as the muffler since they didn't have the ecu that they promised, so this was their compensation. That muffler came off of an E39 with ACS everything, including the aero kit.

Parts have started rolling in...



Started tearing down the engine tonight.

Took off the intake to get the harness out to ship to Eric to work his magic.







Harness and hoses off:





Figured out how the hell to bolt up the manifold supports on my M50 while I was here:



Took off the thermostat and water pump out to find a nice discovery.







Thermo and water pump has been replaced!
