I assume headers is the manifold! Wasn't a good camera angle shot lol!

The trunk lifter was broken, I recently replaced the strut which took ages to find one!

I had it on a rolling road and it was putting out 227bhp with 215lb ft of torque, which is a definite improvment over the standard 2.5 engine running 170bhp! I think it could go little further with a bit of tweaking as I haven't had the ECU remapped yet as there is still a bit of flat spots in the rev range. Once I get it done, I'll know once and for all what her final power output will be.

A lot of the work was done by a guy I know who runs his own business. He mainly does bodywork but knows his stuff on engines inside out as well BMW's in general and got me this one built up for me.

You might have seen his handywork. He has had cars featured in Performance BMW recently had a 2 tone E30 tourer featured.
