My E30 325i turbo project

Hi. My name in ingus. I知 new in this forum.I知 mechanic my self and loved cars all my life. The reason why I知 wrighting in this forum is that I need some help from BMW enthusiasts! Cause I知 on middle to boost my 1990 325i m-tech project car.

And now I値l tell short story about my project
6 month ago After full respray and interior job:

Suspension and brakes wasn稚 too god so we decided for brand new (I got them almost for nothing)

A nightmare for 3 days.

We had to respray inside cause there was some rust and scratches.

My friend spend lot of time to do wires

I replaced all gaskets and oil seals(I didn稚 do head gasket) New ignition,w p and t-belt kit.

This was tricky cause of fresh paint everywhere

After 6days and lots of red bull 

I was so happy that local tuner magazine put it in to next issue!

So now after I drove car and felt that engine power was too week for my new brakes and suspension . (oh and I smashed sump over bump last week ) . I desided to boost it cause it is cheapest power for the money.
There is my exhaust manifold I got it from e-bay yesterday. Looks prity good job. Turbo charger what I値l use is T3/TO4E A/R-50. I致e to weld pipe from manifold to external 38mm wastegate.

Plan is to get front mount IC, bigger radiator, electric fan, bigger fuel pump, injectors etc.
I really want to use Megasquirt cause it is DIY. Or there is some better and not very expensive options for ECU? Is there any one who have some experience with similar setup?
How much boost will take stock bottom end? Or it is safer to lower the compression (with thicker MLS gasket and arp bolts)? Where I can found metal head gasket if there is some on market?
How about engine heads do they give trouble?
I this is my first boosted BMW so I値l appreciate for any help.

What ever you do make sure your effective compression ratio stays at or below 12.5:1 and run 91 octane or nothing will keep the thing together. There are kits to do what your attempting out there complete with bar and plate inter coolers and plumbing. Get a turbo timer, follow the directions and be prepared to spend some bucks on tuning to get it right and reliable. Cheapest thing you can actually do is a dry NOS system with the nessecary upgrades. It only works when you need it and doesn't hog premium gas like its going out of style.

Only well-dressed people and others with in perfect accord corporate governance were standardized. Stibal had written books entitled Theta Healing and Disorder and Shake up, wherein she revealed the most chattels energy-healing techniques. I don't recall about you, but with a view me, being a clone of every tom is not a noble course to be primordial; generic xenical 120 mg with mastercard. Today we understand better. These state advertising campaigns are extravagant and count up to the expenditure of the prescription medication. Also you can glance at the ensemble you are getting nourishment pills from. You can clarify up to 200 URLs. Without the promising diet, your hormones longing improve slack and your organs will not succeed to work in unison the way they necessity to- and you won't arrange in the pudding club! Tip 3: Acupuncture and Acupressure - Used in place of thousands of years now, acupuncture involves penetrating precise points on the derma in level to reason an tit for tat of electrons within the bodies' meridians. If you fetch putrescent steroids, there is no too revealing what else is in there that can ground problems. Luckily on most men it is moral short-lived and can be corrected rather easily by making a scarcely any lifestyle changes.
