    Thanks lads. Here is a bit of a story I did on another forum regarding the build. More pics from a photoshoot I did with the car at http://www.qsm.com.au/show_wallpaper.php?id=66

    I have gathered the various posts form another forum and will post them up here overe the next day or two. Has been a 5 year rebuild.
    10 August 2005
    Was the start. It will be very boring for a while as I am only getting the engine out, pulled down and then will start the rebuild closer to the end of the year. Over that time I will have done some other mod's and will post them as I go.
    Started today by cleaning the work area, and throwing it up on blocks. I am going to pull the bonnet, front nose panel and spoiler/s and a lot of the auxiliaries of the motor such as A/C, Radiator etc. I will keep up dating as I think it is of interest.
    The work Area

    Well today I finally pulled the motor. Took about 4 or so hours with 2 of us. Motor is off to mechanic now to be stripped and inspected. Block will be sent out to be bored out to 2.5 litre specs. Head is being ported and polished at the same time. It will then sit until I get all the parts needed before being rebuilt.

    Well dropped over to Simon Harrex my mechanic today and got given the diagnosis. As we suspected a spun bearing has played havoc on the inside of the block. The crank is beyond repair having had the #1 rod bearing seal itself to the crank and then proceed to crack the crank. The rod has also a small hairline crack in it that was about 10 seconds away from spitting itself through the block. #1 piston has been damaged from hitting the head but luckily, absolutely no damage to the head whatsoever. The crank, rods and pistons were destined for the bin anyway (actually we are going to use them for another project, non motor related) as I am getting a new EVO III forged crank taking the stroke from 84mm to 87mm. New forged rods obviously head and block are off to be cleaned up and we are going to wait for the pistons to arrive before the block is bored so the whole shebang can be blue printed properly. Each bored is honed to the exact specifics of each piston. New ARP Head Studs to lock the whole lot up. These are the bearings from the bottom end. The ones that let go are the 2 on the right. Note the thinness of them. The edges were like razors. You can also see the damage and discolouration to some of the others.
    Click here to enlarge
    This is the shrapnel found in the sump. Itís about the size of a 10c piece. There were also lots of other smaller pieces.
    Click here to enlarge
    This is the crank. You can see where the #1 rod joins the crank (closest to the timing chain end). The damaged journal is where the bearings melted to it. It also has a hairline fracture that can be seen upon a closer inspection. Again scorch marks on the other bearing journals. Itís now a $2000 paper weight. Click here to enlarge
    Click here to enlarge
    Finally the pistons and rods. The pistons are pretty good bar 1. The rod that is damaged is the far left one. It is a bit hard to pick it up in the photo.
    Click here to enlarge
    As a result of the diagnosis it made the decision to go to a 2.5 litre, letís say, capable engine, far easier. I was kind of glad I didnít get it opened and have to be told itís hardly damaged and can be back together soon. The wait is becoming somewhat enjoyable. The cause: We think what has happened is that it may have suffered a bit of oil surge, thus allowing the oil pick up to be starved of oil for a bit, sending the bearings into panic mode and then bang. Because the oil pick up is on the right side of the sump and the S14 sump runs east west, they are notorious for this. I will be using a motorsport designed sump baffle in future.
    26/06/2006
    Got the head back from the engineers today. Completely rebuilt with heavier valve springs, valve seats redone and ported/polished both intake and exhaust.

    Click here to enlarge
    My crank has been ordered from Don McAdams in Florida along with a few other goodies such as engine mounts, new water pump and EVO III oil pump. Have also ordered new custom 95mm forged pistons from Top-end Performance. Being made with a CR of 8:1.1 and will received a high heat ceramic coat treatment. Also ordered ARP head studs and a Cometic MLS head gasket. All should be here in about 8 weeks, as it takes 5-6 weeks to make them (pistons). Turbo is being sorted now and should be here in about 3 weeks. Then everything will go back to Simon to be re-assembled before going back into the car and then off to Exotic Exhaust's to have the custom ceramic coated manifold, dump pipe, Tial wastegate, blow off valve (plumbed back into the exhaust) and all plumbing done. Also getting a PWR intercooler and radiator fitted at the same time. Anyway thatís enough for now.
    07/08/2006
    A couple nice little packages today from Topend Performance. Excellent to deal with.
    Cometic MLS 1.8mm Head Gasket, ARP Head studs and my Custom 95mm JE pistons. 8.1:1 CR, ceramic coated crowns and moly coated skirts. I am expecting the crank from Fedex tomorrow. Ordered a re-ground one from BMW in the USA. Ooops to the service man, they ordered and packed a motorsport crank from Germany by mistake. Click here to enlarge

    08/08/2006
    Well after a few weeks wait and quite a few dollars later, my crank finally arrived from Germany via Florida. Canít complain the way it was packaged though. Packed like a true car nut, in a nice new Coleman Esky. Thanks to Don at McADAMS AUTOSPORT. I cannot recommend Don highly enough to do business with if you are after anything BMW .

    So only waiting on Turbo and few other bits and pieces and off to the engine builder it goes.
    22/08/2006
    Not a great deal happening whilst I await the arrival of my turbo/wastegate/BOV/injectors and a few other bits and pieces. Engine is going to hopefully be started end of next week. Click here to enlarge Test fitted the intercooler. I borrowed one the same size as the one I am getting as I am awaiting mine from PWR along with the radiator.

    I am going to (well my panel sho is anyway) cut out the centre strip that runs along the opening to open it up and allow more air in there. The gap will be 450mm wide x 250 mm high.

    20/09/2006
    Waiting for all the parts to arrive now. Ordered some Verdi Rods from Pure Performance Factory in Sweden. Garrett GT3076R .82 housing, 50mm Tial BOV and 44mm Tial Wastegate. I'll also get a PWR oil cooler once the intercooler is fitted as the I/C will take up most of where the oil cooler now resides, so I will move it to somewhere more appropriate. Engine should be back together in about 6 weeks hopefully. Back into the car to get the turbo manifold made and then hopefully be able to start the key before the yearís end.......hopefully.
    Custom PWR Radiator. It's about 32mm thicker than stock.

    Has to be cleaned up now getting rid of all the burr's on the inside and then polish/painted to a

    24/10/2006
    Got my block finally all cleaned up and painted. Got rid of all the casting burs etc and then coated it to allow the oil to flow back to the sump quicker. Hopefully, only about another 2 weeks before I can drop the engine into the car.

    Should have been down at PI this weekend but alas it was not to be. Work has kept me flat out so nothing really progressed. But whilst enjoying a hot cross bun this morning I managed to jig up the Intercooler.
    Click here to enlarge
    Click here to enlarge
    Click here to enlarge
    Got the last of the parts arriving soon form the states. E34 M5 cam sensor set up (fits the S14), E34 M5 TPS (pot style as opposed to switch) and a few other bits and pieces. PWR are making me a bigger oil cooler that will mount directly under the intercooler. Remote oil filter mount and asociated Aeroquip hoses and fittings. Also managed to pick up my ecu and ignition set up. Took it up to Ray Hall in Cairns on a recent work trip and had him have a good look over it. Installed a software version and ran it upto 10000rpm without any issues. Autronic SMC and Autronic 500R CDI with bosch coils.

    Also lots of help from family...

    So its slowly progressing. Its been 2 yrs now since I blew it at Morgan Park................oh, and a few dollars as well. Those that think you can do this cheaply havent done it. Not sure how long to go. I remember asking kenny a heap of times when his would be finished and his answer was always "When its finished it will be finished". I understand what he means now. Just so many other factors.
    09/05/2007
    Project is on hold for a while as work is full on at the moment and between that and family, there doesnt seem to be enough time in the day. I have set the completion date back a bit......Hopefully it will be on the orad by the years end. Still managed to gather a few more parts from the list as needed.
    New Fuel system consisting of Aeromotive A1000 Fuel Pump,Fuel Fiter and Fuel Pressure Regulator.
    Click here to enlarge
    New Bosch 550cc Injectors (mounted) compared to the old 240cc ones.
    Click here to enlarge
    Complete E34 M5 Cam Sensor set up and Throttle Position Sensor that is a direct fitment to the S14 engine.
    Click here to enlarge
    Also I am remote mounting the Oil Filter for ease of access once the plenum and inlet plumbing is in place. Earls Products make a direct fit application.
    Click here to enlarge
    I was originally going with a PWR oil cooler but managed to get hold of a SETRAB one for same price that will be mounted behind one of my brake ducts. I also have one coming for the diff along with a Tilton oil pump and M Coupe Diff Housing.
    Click here to enlarge
    I have a heap of Aeroquip Braided hoses and fittings coming from the states for all the oil/fuel etc plumbing. The cost spread sheet is looking very ordinary. What was due to be on the road 6 months ago will proberbly not be back until Dec 07.....hopefully.
    13/07/2007
    Quick teaser. It's all away being heat coated. Will be on by next week and I'll post up some pics of the turbo mounted.

    "Dave, Your M3 is finished and the engineer has just attached the approved mod plate"
    "WTF, woooooooohooooooooooo"
    Car is being wired up this week and hopefully started next weekend. I'll send it down to Matt Spry week after next.
    1140 days in the making.

    We started wiring up yesterday. Took 3 hours to disconnect the alarm system. Kudos to Moorooka Car Sound....they install a a mean car alarm and disabler.
    Anyways.......

    Well its been a while since I have had anything to update.
    Finally sorted the wastegate problem. Now holds 7psi all the way to 6500 rpm. Heading back down the coast to get Matt Spry to do the final tune. I'll keep it at 12psi for a while. Planty of safety room me thinks.
    Couple of goodies arrived from the USA (finally thanks to customs).

    I don't even know what to say, this is one of the greatest builds I have ever seen.

    Your E30 M3 is on a whole different level, mind blowing.

    Could we see the 9 psi dyno please?

    Sorry. 265rwhp. Been a while since I had it done.

    The wastegate banjo bolt blew off on the first run so it could only boost to 9psi which was the spring rate in the watsegate. The autronic now keeps it at 14psi....Click here to enlarge

    The wastegate banjo bolt blew off on the first run so it could only boost to 9psi which was the spring rate in the watsegate. The autronic now keeps it at 14psi....Click here to enlarge

    That was in shootout mode as well? You are making some real power, that is likely 300+ on a dynojet.

    So you are using the autronic for engine management? Who does the tuning?

    Matt Spry (P.I.T.S) did the tuning.

    Any reason you aren't revving it out past 6500 or is it because it begins to drop off?

    Wasnt worth taking it up any more as it wouldn't boost higher anyway. Will Rev to 8000rpm when re-tuned.

    Will it not boost higher due to the tune or turbo? 8000 rpm? Nice, very nice.

    No the banjo bolt blew off the back of the wastegate so this prevented the Autronic controlling the boost level. It had a 9psi spring in the wastegate so thats what it opened at. It was too hot to re-attach the bolt there and then.
