    777- Kamotors E23 Turbo Build + E38 content and a hint of e32

    Welp I decided to build up another BMW, I wandered out of the BMW game for a bit and essentially wasted a lot of money modifying my S60R and a bunch of Subarus.

    I picked the E23 because its easy to work on, M30B34 takes boost very well, and I love 7 series.

    My family has had an E32 for close to 10years and its been passed around from my aunt, to cousins then to my younger brother. We did H&R sport springs, Turner Motorsport chip, 3.15LSD and custom exhaust, I ended up liking it a lot more than I thought.



    I picked up a 2001 740i M sport for my new Daily and fell in love with the way it drives and looks. Its got its quirks but its still a huge improvement over my s60r. Its on B&G lowering springs, quad tip muffler delete, and supposed 20" staggered custom STR wheels. Not sure exact width but its on 285 rear and they are stretched! Much more to come on the E38 as I'm tearing into the motor little by little everyday.


    And what the majority of this Build thread will be focused on doing an extreme budget Build 1985 E23 735i Turbo setup and seeing how fast I can make it for as little as possible. If the motor holds up I will go all out on it.... heck, even if it blows up I'll go all out. First will do a Budget build find the weakness's and go from there. I plan to film and photo the whole process. Currently only mods are B&G springs and custom exhaust. I paid $800 fo the car with an oil leak, stuck thermostat and a few cosmetic issues but it does drive great.



    possible end goal

              The E38 is by far one of the best BMWs ever made.

              Nothing that came after that on the 7 series matches that mix of elegance and aggressiveness.

              Plus its always nice to be able to drive it from your cell phone ...

                  Also mailed out the e38 ecu, getting it tuned by dudmd.
                  Stuck thermostat in the e23, boiled both only one opened

                    Sub'd for 7 series awesomeness. My next car will either be a e46 AWD touring or a e38. I want a e38, but the e46 sounds to practical.

                        What do you intend to do with the HVAC system? I assume it isn't working 100%.
