    E30 M3 S54 Swap Complete! Lots of details..

    Here's an updated mod list and specs on everything... I'm sure I forgot some mods and details but you get the idea... many more photos of progress on the build are here:

          I would cringe at every hole on the roads around here with those control arms. Must say your brave running a race control arm on public roads. I might consider running them in some areas of Germany but even there the roads are not perfect.

          How are you liking the added HP and Tq from the 2.5L? Is that pickeled in the corner of your shop so some day down the road you can reinstall it if needed?
