Newbie with a tiny turbo

Since apparently i forgot to make a welcome thread i guess ill start now since pwrofturbo flamed me for an opinion just because his post counts are getting a little heavy. I originally joined evom to get injectors for my e30, that's why i don't post much. but since pwrofturbo got all upset since i don't have any thread/pics/ and what not i guess ill introduce my self.

I have been building and tuning an 87 325e.

I personally painted the car my self, and did all the body work.



built the motor and went with the hybrid stroker of the 2.7 with the 885 head






after many many hours of fighting the ecu, got it up and running and have been tuning as much as i can


i made too much boost and blew a hole in my intake elbow







and when i went to hotrod weekend at Ocean City MD.





this was on 7psi, currently set at 10.5 but am troubleshooting a misfire when boosting above 9.5psi

Tiny turbo or tiny dick.

Read The Back Room rules. And by your post of street racing...its clearly a tiny dick syndrome.

885 head is the the one from the IS right? We usually just call them M25. I have seen a few hybrids motors but never actually played with one. And the turbo cars I have seen never held together. Are you planning on anything for the suspension? Mine is almost as high but only because it is built for a spec class. It is an 88 325 IS with 89 bumpers and 90% built into a NASA spec racer. And so is this a drag car or just going to be a fun DD?

I really want an E30 M3, but can't justify the price since every single one I have seen at the track has blown the motor.

I decided a long time ago that if I were ever to buy an older BMW, I would remove the motor and move on to something else almost instantly.

I know, cool story. I'm really just posting in here for the hell of it. I couldn't give two craps about the OP's BMW. It appears to not be very well cared for. Clean your car for the love of all that is holy.
