Default Mclunk track car build

Hey guys,

I've owned this car for 5 years. I kept it stock for a little while so I wont bore you with stock looking pictures.

Here is how I got my car ready for this summer.

I knew my whole back end needed a lot of love so I rebuilt it entirely. Every single bolt,and bushing where replaced.I went with AKG 75d for everything that used to be rubber.




























I also upgraded my motor, and transmission mounts which were both shot.




Steering coupler was also upgraded




Did my valves, and cam gears bolts.
Both exhaust tabs were intact. Not one valve needed adjustment , and all 12 cam gear bolts were tight. The car has about 130 000km with lots of track time. Very pleased






While I was in the I refreshed my cooling system with a new pump, Mortorsport thermostat, flushed the fuild, and filled it with water/water wetter.







I also got a vibration damper from ATI



And a AKG shifter




AiM Solo


AKG subframe plates.



Some paint corrections...




RS3s


Nice and clean

Incredible work!!

How do you like the AKG Steering Coupler, more specifically, on the street?
What suspension are you running?

Thanks !

I like it a lot. I like my steering as direct as possible, and this is great. My race steering wheel also helps for that. On the street , you feel the bumps and vibrations a little more.

I'm running Tein SSP coilovers

Amazing work bud! I like the preventative maintenance and upgrades to the rear subframe. That takes dedication not cutting corners. She's definitely track ready

Awesome project. It seems like everyone who has an M eventually decides to build the car for track. Side comment: That's one clean garage as well. Be sure to keep everyone posted on the progress both on and off the track.

Thanks.
The E46 is such a fun track car. It's no surprise to see more of them being built !

Had some fun at the track yesterday. I'm very happy with the changes I made to the car over the winter. I beat my best lap time of 2012 by 0.300 on my first session

Here's a lap

I don't know why the quality is that bad. I need to work on my editing skills ...
