242 + e46m3 = 262 W (episode 2)
 
I said I wouldn't build another 240.......
I said I wouldn't EVER own another black car...

Then stumbled upon this at a local JY
burned e46 m3 with 6 speed manual 105k.... $540 after taxes

Did you just say $540 after taxes? For a complete s54 and gear box? That's just theft. Check out r3vlimited for technical advise and wiring. That's were all the s5x engines disappear in e30 engine bays.

Jack is sleeping with the chubby chola cashier at the junkyard to get his hookups.

Leon_pp 10-13-2014 08:56 AM

very good price for the engine.
HEre in France that kind of engine is something like 3000/5000$

Stiggy Pop 10-13-2014 09:12 AM

mmmhmm black 242's :)

Switch3d 10-13-2014 09:29 AM

**** you got the steal of a lifetime on that motor and trans. Also dont lose those center caps on the ronals. They are quite hard to come by.

super stoked to see where this is going to go.

Rfoltz53 10-13-2014 11:53 AM

Im excited to see this build for sure! Love how you are picking up the parts for crazy cheap also!

badvlvo 10-13-2014 12:41 PM

Backing plate for late dash was made by volvogt

I still need to pick it up from him. I wasnt expecting to buy another car while at the show... It will have to wait two more weeks. I'm going hunting this week to Idaho.

240240 10-13-2014 01:02 PM

Serious the Ronals will be the icing on the cake. Get them to fit. 15" Is a good size.

volvobrage 10-13-2014 03:15 PM

Make the ronals 3 piece and og With 16 or 17" lips and barrels!:D
