Default Alpine white e36 m3 S54 swap with N/A goodness

After selling my e46 m3 last summer I picked up a very clean 4 door bare bones 330 sport package with the intention of using it as a family hauler/HPDE car.

After chatting with a long time friend Dcvee(aka E30 M3 hoarder) he said he might be interested in selling his 3/94 95 m3 that he was prepping for a turbo track car.

Here is a picture of my past e46 m3 IR/IR that now is owned by Aavi.



What a great car.

Well now on to the Alpine 95 m3. When I first thought about purchasing this car I was going to swap in some schrick 272/270 cams with many other odds and ends to try and get most of the very healthy s50. I then was chatting with Mike R of Max Psi, and he mentioned that he had several s54's laying around the shop.

Some pics of the car.







Some pics of caliper/brake rebuilding.

Check out the condition of these pistons compared to a new set.



Testing new rebuilt caliper



Now a fresh coat of high paint.



Also adding some UUC stainless steel lines.

ISC coilovers from BimmerWorld.



As for the S54 stuff.

WPC treated bearings have landed.



Here is 1 of the schrick 280/272 cams



I'll have more updates in the coming weeks.

Hi 5

I ran over to this journal once I received your text Jon, I can see this being one hell of a build! Best of luck!

Do you still have the 300, cant remember if it was a ZHP, please refresh my memory!

Looking forward to more updates in here!

Keep a tally of the build cost.

I never did this when i built my car and it was the biggest mistake i ever made.
