It can be stressful but then I hear other story’s about builds that take 2-3 years and it gives me hope. June 19 was when the photo above was taken so I say I’ve made some pretty good progress in a short span of time!

        Yeah, at first I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Halfway through I was thinking that there will never be an end. I just kept doing stuff and eventually it all added up to a "finished" car.

        I should probably take the time and sit down with a six pack and post my own build thread, "I have no idea what I'm doing - a 24V swap."

        In all honesty, you seem to have a fairly solid base so you should be in good shape. Mine took two and a half years because while I had all the free time of a college student, I also had/have the budget of a college student(who didn't spend all their money on booze/weed). I had to balance buying parts and installing them with doing the cheap/free stuff when I was broke. People think that buying baller parts will build their car for them. Post a build thread! It'll be easier to keep track of what you're doing.

            You sound like a small business owner.

              Something like that.


              My e30 hasn't been touched since April 2016. Only reason I know is the "to do" list is still stapled to the drywall behind the first floor lift, yet the s54 swap is long done and about to get a supercharger :(

                  Complicated question. Actual power numbers are a roll of the dice, but based on experience, 270-290whp with stock cams. Build includes dual valve springs, titanium retainers, +1mm intake SS, stock size exh valves, 280cfm intake flow, 11.5:1 2618 offset pistons, mid-length headers, true dual 2" exhaust with tuned x-pipe, m50 manifold etc. Wishing for 300+ after cams. The car is intended for ST 2 or 3 NASA ruleset.

                    That's true, sounds awesome! Given the specs, 270-290whp definitely sounds possible. Being a workaholic looks to have it's benefits at least.

                      Hell yes that is awesome! I tried to make a build thread but I’m still new to this so I’m like posting pics with Brief descriptions/captions like it’s instagram. Turns out that a build thread should be a little more elegantly presented. I got one guy asking what I’m trying to achieve by posting random pics lol. So yes got a little self conscious about the whole thing. I’m heading to LA to pick up my g260 tonight I got the dude to go down to $550 it’s all tested and ready to go!! I will be broke for a week but am going to be one step closer to bringing this lil beast back to life!! I’ll post some pics when I get it! But yes as far as threads I think for now I belong here In the non sense.
