  • Fattie's 98 328is bimmer build

    Going to take a while to build the thing and will be moderate to start with and wild if I get fucking loaded. But for now, the plans include most all bolt ons and ecu programming. Only internal work is possible VANOS delete. Probably will just replace it so my programmer doesn't fuck up. I don't know exactly everything I will be doing right away, so I will just update with new things.

    the week before i got it



    now some shots from two nights ago


    old plugs i pulled. original bmw ngk plugs


    found part of my misfire issue. gauge showed 1/4 tank, but i was empty


    some shots from last night (mouse house anyone?)




    things on order to be installed in next week............

    a cheap cat back (basically sound the same and stainless)-had to replace due gas tank removal and old one was hacked
    VAC motorsports differential bushing kit
    racing seat mount for driver side- driver seat doesnt have full range of motion.

    things to come possibly within the month..........

    VAC motorsports full aluminum engine mounts
    VAC motorsports full aluminum transmission mounts
    Conforti flash programmer
    some kind of short throw (OMG NEEDED SO BAD!)

    Nice bimmer man, I hope you enjoy it. Those M52's are sweet engines, huge potential there. Good luck with the build up.

      I like it. I love BMWs, particularly this style. How in the hell did they rape the fuel tank like that? Does it look like they tried to jack the car up by it or what?

      Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
      Torque dictates how far you take the wall with you!

      Be careful where you go. Remember where you've been. Thats the way I see it. I'm a simple man.

        Ahh E36 nice, love the color too and the black wheels. Looks like it just needs some TLC inside and out and it will be a sharp looking car. I thought you were picking up one of those chopped rear hatchback ones (318 I think it was) at first lol.

        Have fun with it!

              i was, but cobalt wasnt selling and i thought i would miss the chance to get this one. so i traded it in on that. the other dealer wont take such a car on trade, lol. they only dealt with bmw.

              gas tank, i have no idea how it happened. the car sits extremely low, maybe drove over something that scrapped the front and nailed the gas tank? car was airborn and hit the gas tank? someone tried to jack the car? the tank strap wasnt damaged, so it makes me wonder. oh well, cat back is here..........



              oh and here are the seats that are going in. i am only putting the driver seat in for now since the recline power sucks.

                diff bushings have arrived.




                now just need my axles and so all can be installed. and have to remove that annoying cdv so my clutch actually engages when shifting!

                    Clutch Delay Valve
                    German over engineering at its finest. It literally delays the clutch engagement to "smooth out" the shifts but it really just causes more issues than its worth and takes a degree of fun out of it.

                        well diff bushings are pressed and gas tank wouldnt come out. some lines would not come off the tank without being cut. have no idea how they are like this. fuel cell anyone?

                          nice car. the color makes it look like a 95 civic. im not a fan of the spoiler. looks like it will be fun once you get everything sorted out with it.
