e36 M3 3.2 evolution
« on: 12 August 2013, 23:27 »
Got the car and had a leak. Done a bit of research and knew what it was before I bought it. (Solenoid seals) So I knocked him down for repair cost, then got it home and fixed the leak for free  :grin:

car is very clean with no rust. About to hit 62.000 miles. Lots of history, etc, etc.

yesterday I noticed it has a snapped coil spring on the front driver side. Its on the end so didnt stand out as it still sits level.

So after searching on forums ive gone for a set of HSD coilovers. They are preload adjustable and camber rollerball top mounts. Kit also comes with adjustable drop links.

Will upload more pics when im home on weekend.

Cheers guys.

Taken it off the road to do some work on it

part list
simota carbon induction kit (dyno proven 5/9 gain) standarx box gets very hot apparently.
HSD mono pro coilovers
reinforcement plates
input diff seal and two output diff seals
oil filter
vanos filter
parts I still need to get
exhaust solenoids
poly bush kit
once jobs are done and car is on the road, ill take it to a dyno to see bhp. The airflow meter and throttle postion sensor can loose some power if they are tiered. They are expensive so im not just going to replace them if they are fine.

it also needs tracking doing  and front disc's feel warped when hot, but this is pad deposits left on the disc. Im going to take them off and machine them flat.

I got a race this weekend but will upload a pic of the coilovers.  Pure awesome.

I want to get some motorsport wheels and polish


Untitled by tweedub, on Flickr

Also mid 2014 I plan on getting a carbon fibre airbox and a alpha N map

engine hp is 321 but most make 310/315. After the box and map I should get somewhere between 335/340bhp.
Cost about £1500

 

That has to wait because I need new helmet thats gonna cost a lot with a custom paint job. Also I need to build a cnc barreled engine for my kart.

Racing comes first lol


oh just need to get the powerflex bushes and im ready to start fitting everything. I go on holiday this friday so wont update for few weeks.

I just spent £600 on another engine for my kart as I was in airport for holiday.
Im now abusing the free wifi and found this. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/121179689932?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 as you can imagine I haven't really got the money. But I can afford it  :grin: ill sneak a bid in on the last 10 secs. Hopefully I win it.
Then all I need is a alpha N map from evolve and should see about 340/350bhp from a N/A 3.2  :laugh:

lets hope I win it.
