    Jordan Will you ever dyno this thing? I’m very curious what a 2.1 M42 would make

      The engine (car) whatever has about 134 miles on it, so its not really at the point it needs to be dyno'd yet. I'm also still waiting on software for the engine as its still running on the stock chip until the break in is completed to my satisfaction. As it stands I haven't seen the car for at least 2 months, I left it in Jon's care while I plug away at other projects.

        Saturday the E30 got to stretch its legs a bit. I didn't realize but really its been just shy of 3 months since I've seen the car, much less driven it so it was long overdue! A friend of mine was putting on a Vintage BMW car show not far from where the car is stored (Jon's place) so I went over and Jon and I caravanned over to the show. Needless to say the car drove superbly, and man it is just such a pleasurable car to cruise in. The odometer ticked up to 173 miles by the end of the day. We got quite a few looks on our way to the show rolling out 2x2 in cars you don't see 1 on 1. These photos were all snapped with the new iPhone 12 Pro Max, which I have to say really takes some beautiful pictures. The HDR video is also breathtaking, shame Youtube doesn't support Apples new codec for that yet, but I bet it will soon.

            Crazy to think that this car one day was a flood victim. The depth and level of detail in this build is amazing.

              It's certainly a stunning result and it makes me happy that this build is completed, but I really do miss those detailed build posts where you'd fully disassemble something and put it back together. :-)

                  Beautiful car!

                  The blanking plate you are using instead of the check control panel - is that an OEM piece?

                    This build is amazing. This really shows how good an OEM build can look great without a ton of crazy mods. Its inspiration for sure.

                    What are your thoughts on the M42 engine? Clearly you have had a lot of different engines in various E30s so Id be curious of your impression.

                      Thank you, I believe it is standard on all 318iS, which did not come with check control as a factory equipment.

                      The factory does in most cases get it right, and on these cars as I've got older that becomes more and more clear.

                      I love the M42 for what it is. Relatively light, cheap, reliable and makes good power for its size. Of course its still god awful slow, but I also putt around in an 800hp daily driver so just about everything is. More power in a E30 is certainly welcome, but the car as is is a joy to drive. It doesn't feel underpowered and delivery is nice and smooth. Jon and I managed to line em up off a red light and even me still with the stock chip (no tune in place for the engine yet) I managed to get a solid 1.5-2 cars on him to 60 or so in his stock ~75k mile 318iS.

                        That is a great description of the M42! Its lightweight and fun, but don't expect to be blown away by the power.

                        Im sure the stroker crank in yours is not hurting anything either!

                          How many miles until it gets the chip? Would be interested to see dyno numbers once done
