bought the car about 2 & 1/2 years ago, relatively stock 3.0l with a few aesthetic accessories, like Hamann blacked out grill surounds, pedals, rear spoiler and aviation style (functional) fuel filler (since removed as it looked like a stick on one) also A.C. Schnitzer short shift kit, and BMW motorsport front coilovers and full set of King Springs, later found out coilovers and springs were from an original M3R.
drove it around quite happily for a few months, then saw a BMW club motorkhana was coming up in december 04, so decided to enter, had a ball and did most events looking out side window, not fast, but fun, then started going to some circuits for some more fun, then found some deficiencies in the handling, it had far too much understeer for my liking, so new rear bisteins were fitted, front billsteins were sent away and rebuilt and revalved to suit intended track use, I also fitted noltec adjustable solid camber/caster plates at same time, next was motorsport chassis brace and ebay front strut brace, this improved handling a great deal. then I saw a cutaway of the inside of a muffler, they are very restrictive and heavy, so decided comercial ones were a ripoff, so set about making a muffler, I aquired some 304 polished stainless, and perforated 2.5" stainless tube, made what is basically 2 muffler internals, each with 2 X 2.5" straight through perforated tubes, sat them about 50mm apart, end to end on stainless sheet, and wrapped it around and welded, then took it to exhaust place and they bent up cat back pipes and fitted, next was replacing 27Lb duel mass flywheel with 8.5Lb alloy flywheel and M5 clutch. the muffler and flywheel lifted power from 170.1rwkw to 191.1rwkw, so it was quite an improvement, during this time, I also bought second set of wheels for R compound tyres, they are single bigggest improvement in lap times you can get in my opinion (and still be road legal) next on list was enclosed pod style filter, and different E Prom chip that raised rev limiter from 7600rpm, to 8000rpm, this further lifted power output to 199.6rwkw
in amongst all that was several track days, skidpan days, hillclimbs and drags, the net result was a lot of worn out tyres, and stripped splines on LSD plates, so a replacement open 3.64 diff was purchased to replace the 3.15 with non functional LSD, a couple of steel plates and an hour later, I had CIG locker 3.64 diff. then after being happy with the way it was going, had almost dialled the understeer out, I spotted a group buy on suspension components, so I purchased some powerflex rear trailing arm bushes, and an H&R adjustable rear sway bar, these have done the trick nicely, and car is very nearly totally neutral now. then by sheer chance, I spotted an ad for a carbon fiber plenum for about 1/4 the price they usually go for, so I snapped it up, and went searching for Alpha N (maffless) chips to match, ended up finding some copies of now defunct, but highly respected H&H racing chips in Holland, a few emails later, they were on their way. I had a few fitment issues with plenum, and gained over 2 mph at drags (best of 106.48mph), so is definately making more power, but haven't been back to dyno with it as yet, heavy front seats were replaced with some lighter ones, and with only 1 seat in car, and all door trims, boot lining etc removed for a trip to drags, still weighs 1440kg, so circuit race weight is around 1550kg

more update pics?

I've been looking at these and the slightly later version with the 3.2 (if I decide to rent for the next 5 years instead of buying a place lol). Good ones seem to be in the $25-30k price range. Blokes at work are all like "It is a 10 year old european car, shit falls apart blah blah"

What do people in the club rec to newbies?

HAMMER
09-07-09, 10:06 AM
Look for full service history if possible
Check to see whether Vanos has been replaced, it can get expensive.
Dont get SMG as they had a lot of drama's with them.......I mean a lot.
Other than that the engines are pretty much bullet proof. Engine designation is S50B32. US model is S52B32. US M3 and Aust M3 are 2 different kettle of fish. They didnt get ITB's due to emmision controls etc.
Parts are cheap if you look overseas.
They will still embarress a lot of later model so called 'sports' cars.
Throw on some good coilovers and some sticky rubber and you will be having fun all day long on a track.
Browse the various BMW Club websites as you would benifit from buying a club members car

Sounds good, wouldnt mind having a go at the winter cup next year- but i think i need to join the SCCSA to score points (so it depends on how hard they rape you for membership). I'll be up there hopefully pretty regularly running a 50hp mini (yeah baby) or my marginally faster nissan. Bro and Dad should have a few drives next year aswell.

Always been afraid to own one and figured the cheap entry price was a reflection of the suicide you are going to want to commit in running costs.

The cheap entry price comes down to how shit E36 interiors are.

That said, I just picked up a 5spd 325i coupe that has rego 'til May next year for $2500. It's a lot of RWD fun for the coin :)

3 litre wouldn't change signifigantly unless you blew an engine, gearbox and diff are same as 328i, suspension and brake parts, clutches etc are all shared with US models, so are plentiful and cheap. 3.2s have many more unique parts, like 6 speed gearbox which is expensive if something goes wrong, and were not in any US models

Cal
28-06-12, 10:21 AM
So your advice would be to stick to 3L ones? My old man had a Dakar yellow 3.2 for many years. He hated it, as it was a SMG 1. Reckon it put him off BMW's for life.

Yep. And a whole lot fewer shitfull body electronics to do your head in too.

TK
03-07-12, 09:09 AM
I've actually dragged the head for this off the shelf & dusted it off.
Got some bigger supertech intake valves on their way, we'll use the stock exhausts.
With any luck I'll have at least 1 intake reworked for the bigger valves in the next few days so we can figure out where we're going with cams.
Ex flow is almost too good with the stock valves, hoping to crank up the intake flow a bit more so we don't have to use a large backsplit on the cams, backsplit cams are a band aid, for the best power curve you want more ex duration or at worst the same as intake - but you can't do that if the ex is too good, you'll blow down the exhaust too fast & loose out on using the departing ex gas to drag in the intake charge & get things moving.

TK
03-07-12, 05:27 PM
Bam! - out of the ball park!

.65mm larger on the intake valves doesn't sound like much, but jesus it opens up the options on the seats & short turn shape, head picked up everywhere & not by a small amount!
I reworked the short turn, changed the approach angle on the long turn & widened the window a little.
Also stripped the TB's, 1/2 shafted them & ported them to match the head - flow loss with TB's attatched is minimal, whoever says these things need bigger than stock TB's needs to learn a little more.


Intake flow:
Lift - stock - stk valve ported - .65mm over valve (with TB) - without TB
.1 - 89.6 - 92.0 - 111.5 - 113.5
.2 - 173.6 - 175.2 - 189 - 193
.3 - 228.6 - 240.0 - 245 - 254
.4 - 253.8 - 264.6 - 281 - 287
.5 - 262.2 - 280.5 - 293 - 303
.55 - 267 - 285 - 299 - 308
.6 - 268.8 - 287 - 303 - 311
.65 - 270.0 - 289 - 306 - 315

At .550" lift velocity is over 300ft/s everywhere in the port, it's using the whole port, no slow areas, no too-fast areas, 370ft/s over the apex of the turn, 320-340ft/s everywhere else.
Fuck it's good.

Gonna make some power with this one.

Shifty
03-07-12, 05:59 PM
Some big gains there. How does that compare to before & after figures of other high-revving atmo engines you've done?

morerevsm3
03-07-12, 06:32 PM
* like

stock figures would actually be lower too, this is a 3.2 head, 1mm larger inlet valves, and 1mm smaller valve stems than 3 litre head

Cal
04-07-12, 08:45 AM
Nice!

TK
04-07-12, 10:04 AM
Intake port centreline length is 225mm including the throttle body, with the 100mm trumpets that's 325mm - which is wrong!
Preferably you'd need 239mm - but that can't happen, next best option is 342mm.

Can you get a 17mm (or therabouts) spacer between the trumpets & the TB's? - or longer trumpets?

Looks like the stock lengths are set up to pick up the 3rd harmonic at around 6500-6700rpm, I'm guessing the stock engine makes peak power a bit under 7000rpm - again BMW show they know what they're doing.

We'll have to pick up the 2nd harmonic, runners would be too short for the 3rd - plenum would just about have to bolt to the TB's directly with a very short trumpet.

Lower order harmonics give a bigger peak, but not as much spread - 3rd harmonic would be better but methinks packaging would be too big a hurdle without major custom fabrication.

working on cam specs now.

Sorry for the thread hijack!

I saw one identical to yours last week Cal - it rocked up next to me at the lights and i did a double take. Not so much because i thought you were in Sydney, but because bubbling away under the bonnet was a very tough sounding bridgeport - probably a 13B. Sounded and looked nuts. I conclude that yours needs more LSx, 13B etc... :p

I've actually dragged the head for this off the shelf & dusted it off.
Got some bigger supertech intake valves on their way, we'll use the stock exhausts.
With any luck I'll have at least 1 intake reworked for the bigger valves in the next few days so we can figure out where we're going with cams.
Ex flow is almost too good with the stock valves, hoping to crank up the intake flow a bit more so we don't have to use a large backsplit on the cams, backsplit cams are a band aid, for the best power curve you want more ex duration or at worst the same as intake - but you can't do that if the ex is too good, you'll blow down the exhaust too fast & loose out on using the departing ex gas to drag in the intake charge & get things moving.

why not use smaller exhaust valve or weld /fill in the ex port some?

why reduce exhaust flow if you can increase inlet flow?

Catcams have cams almost exact numbers that flow says it needs, so no need for customs, which would require building up stock cams and regrinding, cheaper to get custom Catcams if I needed them from chill cast blanks, cams in these are hollow, so very few in the world have access to blanks

if you cant get a good ratio it is an option but i dont know what the current ratio is. Higher velocity exhaust ports seem to be quite popular these days.
As long as you verify what they give you, twice i know people who found they were "off"

Cams turn without hitting stuff now, got it dummied up & figured out a valve tip height that'll let me set the clearances by grinding the lash caps with minimum fuss, tipped all the valves to those heights.

Intake port centreline length is 225mm including the throttle body, with the 100mm trumpets that's 325mm - which is wrong!
Preferably you'd need 239mm - but that can't happen, next best option is 342mm.

Can you get a 17mm (or therabouts) spacer between the trumpets & the TB's? - or longer trumpets?

Looks like the stock lengths are set up to pick up the 3rd harmonic at around 6500-6700rpm, I'm guessing the stock engine makes peak power a bit under 7000rpm - again BMW show they know what they're doing.

worked out a way to have total inlet length 239mm, carbon plenum won't look quite as pretty though...

All done finally!

Struggled with the tiny little single groove locks with frozen fingers this morning - was 5 deg when I got here.

Setting up the clearances was a task, but not as bad as I expected - BMW were nice enough to make all the lash caps the same depth on the bottom, so I could measure the overall length & grind to suit or swap around caps to get them right, still had both cams in & out 3 times tho.

Basic head all assembled:

I reckon there is enough studs to hold the cradle on - those studs go right through & also hold down the cam caps, the cradle itself is bolted down with another 12 or so cap screws, overkill much?:

Allan:

I'll have to leave it fully assembled for transport so the lash caps don't fall out, so it'll need to be transported with the cams down so the valves don't get bent, preferably on a nice soft blanket or something.
I'll glad wrap it so it stays clean.

The cradle does not need to come off again - it's sealed up ready to go, but you'll have to pull out the cams to fit it.
Call me before you try it, getting the cams out without hurting the thrusts or bending valves has to be done in a certain order, same for assembly.
The valves will clash if the cams are fitted in the wrong order or in the wrong position!

is it hard to slot an S54 in there? i assume they have much more parts available, i've wondered if it fits in E36

Al, what about these?

http://www.vacmotorsports.com/catalog/vac---s50-all-euro-vanos-block-off-plate--elimination-kit.htm







For Race Engines and standalone ECUs, VANOS elimination made easy

Our S50B30 & S50B32 Euro VANOS elimination kit has been designed and engineered to completely replace the BMW OEM VANOS unit, and allow cam timing to the racers needs.


Elimination kit includes: Cover plate, needed gears, and new hardware where needed.
This kit allows you to fully adjust cam timing and dial in your cams for optimum performance.
Ideal if you wish to use a standalone engine management system that does not support VANOS control, or have fitted very aggressive cams that do not allow VANOS function.






$500usd, considering the big dollar heads, be worth every cent!

yes, would fit, but then in IP I would need to run to a weight rule, don't have to with original for model of car block and head, this will make as much power as any S54 around currently anyway...

that VAC vanos elimination kit is at least $400 more than getting my gears slotted and doweled, I have the rest of the plates etc already

I looked briefly at an S54 just out of interest recently. Only one I could find, they wanted $14k for!

should be able to find a used motor for a lot less than that. i saw a written of car for less than that a couple years back with important bits unaffected....

i reckon you can import one cheaper than that to they are a plenty in the US. VAC motorsport in US seem to regularly hit 450-500bhp with them in race builds i might be imagining things but there is a destroker kit available to as well as a 3.5L stroker kit. TK would have a field day

Pauter call them X beam, and from an engineering perspective, are wrong, however, I can find no evidence of a failed one, they are great for reducing windage (less important now I am going dry sump), and were willing to make lightweight ones for my NA application instead of heavy rods designed for turbo cylinder pressures
