    86 Delphin m30 Turbo - Now with more turbo!














    So here's what i started with, an ugly Bronzit , Auto, 90' 325i. Only good thing about it was the b25. But meh, i needed something to drive to school and back.





    But after removal of the carpet about a month after i bought it, of course i find that the entire floor pan was rusted out, aswell as the framerail. This is where i lost all hope and just decided to do away with it.

    That's when i picked up this, an 87' 325 Delphin shell with a little rust on the fender rocker and that was about it.







    Immediately I got to pulling the b25 from the bronzit, nicknamed "The ThunderWagon" and swapping as much over to the new shell as i could. In the midst of all this, a full Houndstooth sport interior made its way into the garage, aswell as some "cheap mans staggered" 15x7 Euroweaves and 15x7 BBS RZ for that extra lip! I know it sounds stupid but i like the look;D.



    Got some 205/50 Yokohama s.drives mounted



    Then of course did some test fitting!




    Finally the b25 was in but not starting, turns out i had the plug wires backwards...




    Tidied up the engine bay a little



    Started wiring up my digital voltemeter, Oil pressure, Oil Temp, and Coolant Temp gauges from VDO.



    I caved in and got a great deal on these for black friday



    Unfortunately i started my build thread halfway into the build, but here's a list of what I've got so far.

    -z3 1.9 short shifter

      Ordered AKG e36 rack and steering knuckle spacers and picking up a z3 rack sometime this week. Coils are getting welded this week as well. Excited to finally finish this up and get some better pictures of the finished product.

            Bunch of parts came in today.

            Morimoto mini h1 projectors
            4300k HID's
            35w Ballast
            lc2 wideband





            These came in...


            These mounts cost me about $1k,



            oh he also threw this in





            This m30 was well taken care of and has been prepped for some induction!

            M5 lightweight flywheel and spec clutch rated for 500hp. It has coolant and oil temp/pressure gauges mounted and an oil drain for a turbo welded in the pan.

            As unbelievable as it is for me to say, turbo may be in my future!

                      Have IE headers......

                      Probably have some stock manis somewhere.

                      IIRC Paul has that 328i...but it's an auto and IDK the condition of the shaft.

                      No e28 535i rads.

                      Cable bracket? Throttle?

                            Yes pls.

                            They are used, so the coating has worn off...but they still work just fine.

                            ...but I thought you were going tarbo?
