Yea, wholly cow dude!

I too must admit, I didn't think this was going to be real. When I saw your picture with a front clip in your basement I thought you'd gone mad, so I chuckled to myself and steered clear. As I do with all the looneys/mad scientists I come across.


now though...I've seen it and seems I cannot discern reality from hoax

.....unless this is moon landing....just as rare.

Love it. How does it feel when driving? Ya those 245s aren't going to cut it. Depending on wheel type you run a 285 with a small roll. Thank you for making this!

Its squirrelly. But tracks pretty straight, i have the rear toe camber kit in it but i could of instaalled it better. Thats why I'm working on a new subframe and just got the rest of the m roadster rear end parts. So those other trailing arms that i welded up will be going on Nikki (my silver ti) and t I got another brace kit from srs and will be bracing up the M arms. Even though it already has the factory bracing I'm going to double it up and try to create better/ more efficient sway bar mounts to the arms. Wheel hop broke the ones off the current arms and they had the garagistic brace on the. Its a good brace kit but I'm pushing the limits of the entire car, so it's not their kit, its my abuse. I also have garagistic derlin bushing kit for the car to try out. Really looking forward to the new shifter bushings and a zf tranny. The gettrag-ity is about to blow 2nd like Nikki did. Although I'm pretty impressed its lasted this long. I'm betting as soon as the ground warms up 1 or 2 good launches and its done, or i blow out another stock diff.

2nd round of reinforcement of control arms. Finally located all the m roadster parts i need to swap out the rear end. I just have the camber/ toe kit to weld in and send out for powder coat.

A costly(but effective) solution is to "knife edge" the crank. It requires precision machining, but, it really cut down on windage and slapping of oil in the crankcase. A team I was with did this to their Integra R motors with good results.

Just realized my suggestion was about a year to late.
Awesome engineering sir!

Well, this is a prototype and their is a good chance I'll blow it up. Im curious how some of the parts hold up and how much power is possible. On a side note i was cleaning up some things in my basement and decided to pull the head on my peugeot engine that i blew on the drift track 8+ years ago. It had pushed the fire ring out and into one of the coolant jackets. But as i was taking it apart which i have had them apart before but years earlier, something looked very familiar to the bmw m30 engine i was doing a head gasket on at work. Head design, block design, bellhousing pattern, and even the intakes were similar. So i did some research and found that Lagos Talbot Sport designed both engines. So I've been thinking of looking for an e28 to put the other peugeot engine i built into, that is if i can confirm that the 535is 5 speed will bolt up to the 2.2 turbo peugeot engine. My other thought was to just get the tranny and fab it into a 2002 or e21 or e30

Couple pictures of that peugeot head gasket. I think that was about 25psi boost. That's why on high boost applications you want a multi layer head gasket instead of fiber. But i didn't build this one, it was the original engine that was in my 505
