Turbo E36 M3 -- It's under the knife!!.....I EXCITE!

Finally felt good enough this evening to tear into the M3. Its been sitting on Adam's lift all week without oil and the mid pipe removed in prep for this.

I tore into it, this is all new territory for me on an e36 and I'm loving it


Front bumper is off







new Fujita air filter


time to clean its teeth...yuck bugs everywhere



Hello



2 quick interior shots.....needs some conditioner on the vinyl, been sitting w/ the windows open baking in his garage during the day





The M3's stabelmate for the few weeks it will be under the knife, Adam's beautiful M5. Its going up on the lift Saturday to get a new clutch





Intercooler is off



Skipping WAY ahead the downpipe and wastegate are already off, turbo has been unbolted, coolant drained and the turbo is FREEEEEE to go to anther car



BUT holy crap, I had no idea this was going on



I'm guessing the turbo was like this since I've owned it. The car has only run better and better since I've got it since i'm giving seriously needed maintenance and love. Sooooo i'm actually really pumped since I cant wait to feel the difference of a well running gt35r!!!! If this little guy w/ these shredded ass blades was running as fast and smooth as it was, god I cant wait for 35r and meth w a custome tune.

I EXCITE

the 60-1 will receive a new compressor wheel and is going to be sold along with a lot of other turbo parts. I already have a buyer lined up guys so no need to PM me.

In comparison

gt35r .82 vs the TT stg II 60-1 turbo



Back down for a few more things under the hood like removing all intake piping



obviously havent touched it yet. I'm going to take this oppurtunity to clean up the wiring in the engine bay. Hide the HID ballasts, etc.



Cleaned up for the evening and will be back for more tomorrow







MORE TO COME!!!


UPDATE 8/30


Got a little more time....30 minutes or so and opened up the 35r to "reclock" it and rotate the compressor housing to match the old turbo. Also took the time to degrease and clean the compressor housing.

Nothing crazy, more coming tomorrow night....god willing it will be mounted.

Got it apart



Compressor



Housing (no gasket)



Rotated to match the 60-1



Random parts laying around the garage, will have these organized and cleaned tomorrow too





Downpipe and Wastegate pipe







mid pipe and charge pipe

the car on the previous turbo should have been making roughly 400whp w/ that setup.

new setup should be easily around 500whp

thanks! I'll get video's when its done for sure.

I ran this car w the old setup against a car i'm sure was a 119-121mph trapping car and stayed neck and neck with it on the highway even w that f'd up turbo. Cant wait to see what happens now

Sick buildup Sniz, looks like a lot of fun.

GT35r on 500whp will still have plenty of room for more power down the line...
