However, I hate how they look so now I'm just going to put something else on with huge sidewalls.

Probably do a little fixing up of the small stuff, get it just right and sell it.... because I have a problem.

Hey that's my old car, I built it and it's been sold a couple times since - I hear it wasn't very well taken care of.

It's an E30 lsd, I forgot the ratio, maybe 3.91?

No way!! Thats so cool! The last owner seemed to care for it fairly well fixing up little bits here and there, even doing the engine mounts etc...

I'm really enjoying it, even if little things have been failing here and there since the purchase, but I'm planning on getting her back up to glory.

The short ratio makes the car much more fun, however, on the highway it can be a bit draining.. I applaud your build, really enjoying it.

Time to clean and dry her up real good for the big freeze! My buddy who owns Glossworks came to hangout and help me winter clean properly with my own bucket, mitt, soap, and waffle dry cloth.

Just came back from the storm from Aldergrove to up the hill in Coquitlam. The roads are bad! At least I cleaned my car last night. LMAO

I know I should post this in a different thread, but because you askedÖ

Itís a 2nd owner 91 M5 that Iíve owned for the past 14 years. Itís a high mileage car but was well looked after by the previous owner.

Hereís a picture of it before I made any major updates to it.



Started the upgrades back in 2009 when the engine went kaput.

Ouch!


The engine rebuild (thanks to Farrell and Miller Performance for the rebuild!):

JE Pistons and IE H-beam rods:




Ceramic coated the stock headers:


Schrick cams (280ís):


Bored and stroked to just under 4.0 litres.

Hereís the engine after the rebuild:



Results with factory exhaust comparing stock vs rebuild:


Custom SS Magnaflows with Vibrant high flow cats installed shortly after:



Results with new exhaust (check out the torque 321 vs 264):



Most recent additions:

Front:


Rear:


With Summer shoes:


And most recent picture:



More to follow in 2017Ö
