    "Dublin" Delpin grey 2.8 24v M52 Swap NEW

    Hey everybody my names Devon , I bought this car for 300$ with a blown motor , it has a rough interior tan leather seats that were died black , I didnt have much mechanical experience before this, its my first build thread , and it kinda was thrown together sloppy with not as much detail of what i exactly did to my e30 . car has absolutely no rust , i redid the interior myself by sourcing parts locally. I have no history on the car other than that I'm the third or fourth owner.
    The last owner didn't change the oil for 20000 miles , there was a bottom end were the passenger seat is and all the interior was just thrown in the car . This car has been a lot of work .
    Thanks for looking

                              Unbolt the connecting rod caps then push the rod and piston out of the block. Keep everything in order. Nice find for 300.
