    My M3 Turbo.

    Havent been on for a while but he's the update on the car so far.
    Rebuilding my blown 2.3 litre engine into a turbo 2.5 litre. Spun a bearing some time ago and decided, after some deliberation, to rebuild it and introduce FI, for some real fun. Will be running about 1.4 bar boost.

    2.5 Litre 87mm Crank

    Cometic MLS Head Gasket
    EVO III Oil Pump
    Head Ported and Polished
    EVO III Valve Springs
    Re-seated Valves
    248/248 Cams (These will change to some 264/276 later)
    ARP Head Studs
    Custom Made Ceramic Coated Turbo Manifold and Dump Pipe
    Custom Made Stainless Steel Exhaust
    Garrett GT3076R .82 A/R Turbocharger - 1.4 bar boost

          uh wow, nice engine build! just curious, what is the red stuff on the inside of your engine block? I'm assuming it's not just paint.
