VEHICLE STORY

I bought this car in April 2016 and it was completely trashed. I recently finished swapping in an M20b27 running on a megasquirt II and it's currently boosted to 8 psi with all stock internals. It hasn't yet been dyno tuned but my guess on power would be in the 275 to 300 hp range. It will always be a work in progress so there are many updates to come!

[]Jeff Bowman

Looks like a well built machine!

[]Jeff Bouvier

Thanks!

If your wheels are a 10 offset, would a 32 sit more in inward?

[]Jeff Bouvier

Yes, a +32 offset will set the wheel further inward. Just be careful when going positive offset. Depending on your wheel width, the inner edge of the rim could hit the strut tube. I'm running 8" wide wheels with a +10 offset and if I can remember correctly, there is only about a 3/4" gap (possibly smaller) between the rim and the strut.

[]Beverton McGill

I have a 8.5 inch 41 offset OEM BMW wheel. When I get back to the garage I will install it and see what type of space I have. And adjust from there. Offset, has made me second guess having a math based degree.

[]Jeff Bouvier

Haha, I could be completely wrong. Maybe I have -10 offset? I can't completely remember.

[]Beverton McGill

When I get back to working on the car, I will let you know what I discovered. It might help someone else. We both could be wrong. On Wednesday I will let you know the verdict!

[]Jeff Bouvier

Sounds good!

[]Jessica Pomerleau

Wow that's a mean machine, always been a huge fan of vintage BM's 😍

[]Kyle Addington

Did you have to roll your fenders for that fitment ?

[]Jeff Bouvier

I only had to roll the inner lip, not the entire fender. I just barely makes it past.

[]Tom Armstrong

Dope

[]MR2 Turbo

Still the coolest bmw chassis ever... great car

[]Tom Armstrong

unknown power huh...interesting

[]Jeff Bouvier

At the moment yes lol. Still in the works :) I'm shooting for around 300 though.

[]Chris Dirkschneider

Very Nice BMW! I love this body design... maybe the next car I decide to build will be something along this style!

[]Jeff Bouvier

Thanks! Btw, love your RS coupe. Don't see those around anymore.

[]Chris Dirkschneider
