700HP Club (N54)
Platinum Vendor
Oct 19, 2016
Whats going on guys, I know this is a little abstract comparing to all the other "builds" in this forum but i thought you guys would like this anyways. Before I started messing with N54's back in 2015 I have been in the E36 before that for a while. I had built a turbo e36 while i was in college going into owning a N54 powered car that you guys know as "40 Roll". Im just going to skip all the mumbo jumbo and go straight to the juicy e36 stuff.

So the goal is to reach 1000whp , how i get there i had no real game plan but to throw money into and see what happens lol

Do you have any photos/information on mating the trans to the M52? I had no idea that was compatible.

K Sport front coilovers!!! Love me some K sport! Why everyone does not run 8 pot k sport big brake kits is beyond me.

Seriously this build needs some pictures!
