Bought an E60 bmw over a year ago, eco diesel shitter, spent some cash on wheels, lows and a wrap, drove it for a bit like that
Then about 10 months ago got bored of the lack of poke, but M5 prices and unreliability meant one of those was a no go...... hence the 2jz transplant idea......
Building as much as i can myself, including mounts, manifolds etc and also tackling the headache of wiring too, but tbh, i thnk deleting the i-drive like i plan too and running a tablet instead connected to the Link G4+ storm will cure a lot of issue
Built for around 600 bhp out of the 2jzge motor, TT headgasket to lower comp, hx40 super turbo at about 1.6bar, 850 injectors, dizzy delete, cam and crank sensors, coil on plug etc
Engine and transmission mounts were pretty easy to knock up in an afternoon and my mate powdercoated them for £20 lol Using an E39 530D 5spd gearbox as the 6 speed that was in it pushed the engine forward quite a lot and the clutch/flywheel combo is around £500 cheaper too!! Will be using lengthened M5 prop, M5 diff and driveshafts for the rear end. The 3.6 diff ratio should make it fun
Currently waiting on the prop to return from modification and its onto mapping 3rd of march!!!
Few pics of the project.....
