    How the hell does he get an M54 to stay together at 800 HP?

    Going to race him with my ix later :D

    Turbo S54 POWA?

    I've been thinking for a while that I'd like to take an E46 M3 shell, swap in E46 xi front suspension and drop an LS engine with Trailblazer SS oil pan and front drive hardware into it. If I use an iron block engine and turbo it, 1200 HP is available on a production shortblock.

    I'd love to build an M73 (or maybe M70B54 frankenmotor) E34 with Getrag 265 manual trans. A Metric Mechanic rebuild for that, especially with the billet internal shift linkage components, would be great, but that costs as much as the 560G six speed for the V12... :-?
    Yeah well, that's the paradox right? I used to have unlimited time and no money. Now, money isn't necessarily unlimited, but i don't have free time.

    I'dlike to aactually accomplish something this year though. I've been working on it for 4 years and all i have so far is a bunch of parts! I'm thinking I'd like to get the mk60 dsc system retrofitted this year.

    The transfercase is new, the trans was rebuilt by drivegear.com a year ago.

    no.. none. not even one hole. also, the N52 block is a little deeper, by about 1/2". I put the E34 pan on it for the heck of it. So even that wouldn't fit.

    but yeah, that's the idea. Need to find a fabricator who can work some magic, as there are some issues. Need to find a front diff first so I can have a full mock up.

    Here's the rest of the pics I took yesterday. E30 pan placed approximately in line with the driveshaft (it's at the wrong angle, obviously):




    here's the E70 pan. The rear bolt mounting bosses for the pan interfere with the driveshaft and where the flex disc would go. obviously, on the later cars the diff is further to the drivers side, while the E30 is much closer to the center. So much of this rear area will need cut apart. Fortunately I think I can still bolt it down, there's a second flange where it actually seals that could be used. the driveshaft also touches the rear of the sump, it's actually pushed a bit further into the transfercase than it would normally be:

    Or do...? :p that would be fun.

    Do any of the bolt holes line up? Going to get an E70 X5 oil pan to hack up and weld in the E30 diff mount?

    I'm pretty sure it's magnesium. I scuffed a corner of it and it looked a lot different from fresh aluminum.

    don't catch it on fire, huh? :p
