    Story behind the car: started life as an auto that lost its life to a timing belt that was 2 weeks away from the crusher, I bought it as a $800 shell an a m52b28 w/s52 cams and a zf320 found its way between its fenders. 1.5 year and constant annoyance with bad tuning forced me on the quest to find more reliable power. 7 weeks later the v8 was driving and on the way to the dyno. I would Like to thank all the guys over at brads custom auto in Seattle for all the help over the years will all my crazy projects

      he needs an i lip, i can understand if having an is lip is too low. but having the clips out there looks half assed in a car that so much effort has been spent on.

      it looks amazing though, really nice powerplant.

        What did you use for a driveshaft, Greg? I've got one from an auto e32 but its a single piece. Thinking about having a shop splice the front flange of it onto my existing one, but if you did something easier I'm all ears.


          Congrats greg! Your car looks great as always.

          One stop shopping for NEW, USED and EURO PARTS!


            holy fuck!

            that is a lot of motor in such a small place


              Pretty clean, but I agree with Kershaw

                  whoa that is sweet! I wish I could do that to my ix. The exterior looks great, I like the wheels and frenched lights. Who cares about the lip?


                    Great looking car, and a wonderful engine swap, wish it was mine.


                      Damn that's a big motor! Love the car, but it does really need an is lip!


                        how much was dropped on this swap?
