    S38 / M-Tech II Swap

    Bought this car about two years ago, had a blown timing belt, mashed valves.... but otherwise in great condition, with only 35K Miles..

    J-Spec E30




    Over the past two years, been looking for a S38.... and well, thanks to r3V's help, you guys found one a couple weeks back. Ironed out the details, and I picked it up yesterday....

    Phil (previous owner) & Josh (Volvo driver).... we hooked up in a small town (Thunder Bay, ON), not quite halfway between us... about 650miles for them, and 500miles for me.

    Route:



    V70 Tow Vehicle:



    Home




    Money Shot:




    Stack of receipts / maintenance:

    One of which, is 11111316702.... Phil spent over 10K on this engine in the past year.




    Hope to have it done soon!


    BIG THANKS TO PHIL & JOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! REALLY APPRECIATE IT!!!

    Nice to see some Canadian e30's following in Scandinavia's footsteps :)

            Thanks guys! I'm looking forward to it.... need to get the balance of the parts/hardware in.. will try to order all of it next week.

            Edit: Phil & Josh pulled the exhaust off, when they pulled the driveshaft (so it could be towed). Gives me a semi listening to it with open headers.... is that bad?

                definitely not the common 24v swap over here.

                can't wait to see where you take this!

                  Lucky bastard! Wish I could afford an s38b38 for my car! :hitler:

                  Keep us posted on the surgery. And of course post some footage of the monster in action when she comes alive! :twisted:

                          That's a S38B36, no coil on plug ignition.

                          If all goes well I will have mine done for the 2010 E30 Picnic. Nice to see others looking at this swap again over the S50 equiv.

                          Also awesome on the OEM BMW block replacement. Mine had a brand new head put on it about 50K ago (only ~100k on the lower end). Awesome motors.
