    '86 325e M20 build up

    I have decided to take a jog down Forced induction lane with my 325e. I picked up a new td40 turbo w/ported WG openng, from a friend for cheap, and it started from there.


    I ordered a shit-ton of parts from bavauto (about $270.00 worth of parts), Making an exhaust manifold(testing my welding ability), ebay intercooler pipeing (on order), already had an intercooler, turbo oil lines from fast-turbo.com($110.00) Greddy Emanage Blue(no one i know has tried this. my guess is it's wiring hell. $127.00-used) trying to ge my friend to sell me his bosh yellow top injectors (hopefully some beer and 30 will do it-used), greddy type RS BOV (60.00-used)

    * This will be an ongoing thread with pics of the whole process.

    Note: A Nos Wet kit fell into my lap. do i try to use this along with the turbo? a 10 and 20 lb bottle, wot kit and purge kit.


    any help and comments would be great.
    Thanks

    *Update*

    I got the 325 on the lift last friday. found alot of things that need to be replaced. fuel lines, half shaft boots, swaybar bushings, 3 holes in the floor board (size of quarters), rear brake pads, control arms, and the front swaybar mount was broken.

    i ordered a used swaybar from a 325is,




    and a laser cut gauge panel.

    The fuel lines are going to be steel braided(need to find), and I'm ordering some 22lb injectors.

    *This week i am replacing the tie rods, inner and outer, oil pan gasket and taping the oil pan for turbo oil return line, and removing P/S pump and components.
