    N54 twin turbo conversion project

    Currently how it looks this afternoon I'm getting married in August so probably not much happening untill all parts have gone and I can hunt for a decent e61 to do the transplant in over winter.

    N54 twin turbo conversion project

    Following on from my reply in the what did you do to your e61 thread I thought I'd start a new topic with my new project. Plan is to convert an e61 to n54 twin turbo power plant. As this isn't a car they was available to the UK market in e60/61 format thought it would be a good project to build it myself. I don't know of any in the UK but correct me 8f I'm wrong. It's all starting with the donor car, a e92 335i msport with a manual box. Picked it up for 3.5k which is a steal for one if these with the spec it had, plan is to sell everything I don't need which hopefully will leave me in profit and with a free engine and box The donor

    Plan is to just get it all in and running and replace / upgrade parts once it's back on the road, the engine conversion hopefully will be straight forward, its just coding the e92 modules to work with an e61 , it'll be a manual as well so hopefully just a case of wiring up the ecu and getting it to communicate with the car

    Morning mate, we did them on a 4 poster ramp , brother has his own body shop so handy for that, you can do it on axle stands I got the kits from zf so came with instruction booklet, I got myself an electric oil pump to pump the new oil in https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F132439466537

    Fitted a replacement door seal as mine had worn thru causing a bit of wind noise , also did another gearbox service as mine was leaking from the sump, did my brothers 530i as well which cured a nasty vibration under load whilst driving , 160k and on the original sump and oil, drives like a dream now

    Arb bush day today, poly bushed the m5 rear roll bar and fitted heavy duty meyle drop links, also poly bushed the front arb for good measure too Also think I've cured an annoying issue when driving hard, with the under tray off I could checked the actuator vacuum hose and it looks like 10mm of old vacuum hose was still on the actuator nipple and the new hose was barely holding on, managed to pry the small bit off and push the new hose fully on, car drives alot smoother now, will give it a good blast over the weekend

    Sunroof issues.

    Just adjusted my roof as it's never Sat properly since I got it, always seemed a few mm too high, now nice and flush and took less than 5 minutes as per the instructions above, also had an annoying rattle for over a year and sorted that a while ago but it was the concertina skirt had come away from the roof frame on the drivers side as pictured above could have sworn it was in the boot but was right above my head
  14. Sorry for not replying sooner, im not sure on the resistor size as it was the active headrest side we bypassed

    E61 Rear Wheel Bearing Replacement?

    Give the outer cv joint a good soaking with wd40 wheel end over the next few days, I did mine and the shafts were welded into the hub / bearing , also had to air gun the hub nut off as that was also tight a.f
