My 79 323i

Post by JJGBMW323 » Mon Sep 29, 2008 12:22 am

Hi Everyone.

I have had this car since 1990 and it has undergone and extensive renovation. All major body panels including the roof have been replaced.
I am currently building a 2.9 m20 stroker engine for this car, with s50 rods and s50 crank and custom weisco pistons.

Here are some pics: I also have a set of BBS RM rims that I am going to rebuild for the car.

I have a 1990 325i m20 engine. It was a 2.8 m20 but it had problems with piston slapage.
Image
I am making a 2.9 m20 with S50 rods, S50 crank, arp bolts, custom weisco pistons, IE crank scraper, 524td oil pump, ported and polished 885 head, 288 shrick cam, 11 pound flywheel, Ferrara plus 1 valves, and 19 lb mustang injectors. The rocker arms are stronger ones as well.
Image
I also have a set of BBS rm rims, I am going to build them 15 x7 front, 15 x 7.5 rears with custom lips.
Image

I want them to look like this:

Image
If you look at one of the pics it still has the decal from the dealer who sold my car to the former owner.
Image
I also have a dogleg tranny, ZF Sport Steering Rack, DINAN adjustable rear subframe and momo Champion Steering wheel. I have not finished the stereo system yet or the new engine

I have been working on this car for many years.

Hi, I got the tshirts from the guys on Bimmerforums, who made them for a large BMW show in California called BIMMEFEST.

If the remake them I will let you know.

As for the rims, the silver ones will be restored along with the braking and suspension this year. Then I am going to step up to a set of BBS RS.

I think they are the original Mahle BMW ones? I chased a set on ebay but they went to more than I was prepared to pay.
