My Other Toy: S52 Swapped E30

If this is totally out of place I'll appologize now. That said I thought some of you might enjoy seeing the other money pit competing for my dollars and attention.

It's a 1988 325is(limited slip diff, sport suspension etc) with an S52(3.2L e36 M3 motor) swapped in among other mods. It's quite a riot to drive, and what it lacks in grip and outright grunt it makes up for with raw feel.

Hell Yeah! I love the E30. It must be a lot of fun with an S52.

Good stuff. I plan on dropping an S50/52 in mine at point. Did you do the swap yourself?

Yeah, I built the car back when I was working as a tech for a local aftermarket Euro repair shop(Rolf's Import Auto Service). Having a hoist, air tools, Autologic scan tool, and a few other goodies made things a breeze compared to flat backing it in the garage with jackstands. I'm currently in the process of buying a house that just so happens to have a decent sized 4 car shop attached so who knows what I'll build next...









I need to upload some engine shots, I can't find any at the moment, you can sorta see something in this one but not much...
