    So, finally fixed my clutch. Basically it was really low engagement. Learned about the pivot bolt on the pedal where the master attaches. It's cammed so you can adjust the pedal height. Went to adjust it and noticed that one of the master cylinder bolts was loose. The other was missing. SO the master was pivoting around when you pushed the pedal in. It's been that way for two years since I first built the car. SOO nice to find that. It's so perfect now. Goddamn car will break the tires loose now.

    Anywho, car is going on the dyno tomorrow. Any guesses for some whp/wtq numbers?


    Its almost like you were in a hurry to get it together or something.

      Yeah it was called the red shark or something but it had m3 flares. Looks nice. It would fit the character so well

        If the M70 is basically two M20 mated together (oversimplification) can you use the same M20 cam x2 in the car?


        There was a guy that made m70 intake fit his m20. Finished results. No videos. Random but thought i would add onto that

          E34 550iT....The Gristle Hammer

          Alright, I'll get pics later....and we got some good vids but those are being processed.

          Final Numbers were:

          ..WHP/WTQ
          1. 265.84/296.76
          2. 265.56/295.97
          3. 265.46/294.75

          I build a fucking tight engine. Dyno operator was impressed at the consistency. I'm pretty happy. Figure 20% loss and were around 330hp or so at the crank. BMW rated these at 300hp at the crank, so....I'll take it.

                  You're making it really hard to stick to my new plan of using my M70 for a Hot rod build...

                    Yeah, Kevin (dyno owner) seemed impressed. Of course the engine has about 2000 miles on it, maybe. I'm happy. I know it's fresh for future upgrades.

                          Hahah, yeah, that's my friend Walt who takes cred for the vids. He's got a couple others on Youtube with the car when he details it for me once a year before Vintage, lol.
