    E30 M3 S14 Turbo @ Castro's, No. Hollywood



    Ok so I'm feeling like it's time to introduce my project on R3V, first I gotta give credit to Anders for creating this masterpiece, Morris, Ted B., Jake, and last but not least the conscientious work of Chris @ Castro's Auto Repair :thumbs: There aren't many individuals let alone shops doing this level of custom work and Chris' attention to detail was a perfect match to Anders craftsmanship.

    I'm excited to report that March looks like the month she will rise again! Thanks to Castro's... It took awhile due to a lot of little knick knack repairs that he came across upon inspection and installation of new parts. Sorry for the picture quality but I'll let them speak for themselves...

    Aside from replacing the cracked rear subframe which I reinforced...

    ...powder coated grey for contrast, to detect future damage early.

    Chris found, cleaned, repaired, and reinforced every possible weak link that he found in preparation for the turbo, custom 3" exhaust.

        Anders is making more of his turbo gear? OMGOMGOMGOGMOGMGOMGOGMGMGOGMGFDMG where can I purchase said items? I don't even have an S14 and I want.

        His turbo build was the most attention-to-detail focused I've seen since that guy with the low milage black M3.

            Ok Chris @ Castro's has been my right hand since I can't wrench post back surgery and this month he's been on it with his new Miller 350!

            So here's the latest from this weekend, after taking Anders' advice Chris & I decided to improve ground clearance by tucking a V-band above the 90* bend... downpipe mods are completed!

            Dumptube & WG --> Downpipe


            V-band tucked up & fitted


            Exhaust pipe clearance ;)


            This week, wrap the pipes in the engine bay, fab the (M6) cat-back exhaust, try to figure out COP, Low-Z injectors & Methanol injection with MegaSquirt v3.57. Those damn Vorshlag motor mounts better hold up! Gotta get Group-N Trans mounts...

                  Your car looks great. I've seen it at Chris's shop a few times and it was up on the lift Friday when I stopped by.

                          I love everything but the lay z boy recliner. But i understand since you just had surgery.

                            dude - this is the stuff I dream of! it doesn't make my lust for an E30 M3 any easier..

                            what did that manifold cost, $1500-$2k? definitely a work of art. I'm so sick of looking at $100 ebay crap. :(
