    "ALPINA" Sedan Heart transplant....More power!!!

    So after running the m20 for awhile, it decided to die on me on the dyno...
    So after getting a sweet deal I couldn't pass up I did a 24v swap.
    Went with a basic OBD1 M52 with S52 cams, Headers, M50 Intake Manifold, etc.

    Car still needs a tune/chip so I can take full advantage of the cams. Still have the stock ECU so redline is 6,700 :( and with my 4.10lsd its not fun haha.

    Lowering the diff next week and hope to have the new tune done this week.
    Car is a blast to drive...

    Still have some little details to do to make the engine bay cleaner, got to install my m3 firewall covers, and a few more things to finish her up this week.

    On to some pics:

    A little teaser video of how she sounds! More coming soon...

        So clean & looks great. I'm sure it's a hoot to drive.

        Given the Alpina theme of your car I'm a bit sad not to see an M30B35 lurking under the hood though!

          Nice! :up:

          I think i would have rebuilt the alpina engine personally because its rare..but each to their own! You will get more power out of your current set up anyway!

                          Nicely done! I don't personally think a "basic" swap consist of OBD1 conversions and cam swaps though, lol. I bet it's a blast. I feel your pain on the low redline and 4:10 diff. I run out of r3v's pretty quickly.
