Arrow My LSx Swapped E36 M3 Picstures & Quick Video

Well finally got the M3 LS1 swap finished and down in Florida, and felt great to rip around down here and figured I might as well post some pics.

I still have a lot to do, but for now here are a few pics and 2 quick videos. Working on a full "production style video" with some artistic shots and action stuff.







No editing, no filters, right off the camera just added logo,.











Engine Specs

LS1 out of a WS6 with about 38k on it.
Cam is an EPS (Engine Power System) 236/246 its fairly aggresive, but perfect for a light car.
Long tube headers by vorschlag (which are a bit low)
Exhaust is Y pipe into the Borla M3 exhaust I had on prior
LS6 manifold and mild tune from Race Proven Motorsports
LS7 Clutch
Intake I'm still working on.
Puts out 416 whp and 389ft lbs tq

Videos.


Open headers Idle Video

Quick walk next to idle video with exhaust (better on a computer)




Thanks for looking!!

This makes me miss my old LS1 camaro, I've never owned an engine that responded so well to modifications. Awesome project, congrats!

How much did the whole swap cost you if you dont mind me asking ? I've been thinking about putting an LS into a E36 shell as well just for a track toy.

Thanks

LS7 clutch and flywheel $800
Cam + lifters $800
Headers $1,200
Engine Mounts $700
Drive shaft $600
misc parts Ac lines, abs, fluids, shifter, header wrap, exhaust parts, ep tuners register, ls6 manifold, tune etc etc etc about $2,000ish

lol not quite, I guess you haven't looked at the prices on aluminum lately or LS engines, it was worth paying extra for a clean low mileage motor then risking it for a pick and pull $2,000k one. But yes they have gone up.


LS2 with 32,k miles $7,500
http://www.ebay.com/itm/2005-GTO-LS2...71b9a3&vxp=mtr

LS1 with 124,000 miles and crappy auto trans $3,700
http://www.ebay.com/itm/2000-Camaro-...4346d5&vxp=mtr

Another LS1 with auto trans 120,000+ miles for $4,200
http://www.ebay.com/itm/2004-GTO-LS1...59789a&vxp=mtr

I can go on all day.

Now an LT1 sure you can find one of those for dirt,

why you are you shopping on ebay !?!?

LS1Tech is the best source for anything LS1/LS2/LS3 related items....

and this is just on the first page !!!!


LS1 with 110K miles for $1200 (you could have put a brand new rotating assembly in this thing and STILL saved money from buying a used LS1)
http://ls1tech.com/forums/parts-clas...-ls1-sale.html

LS1 Longblock with 99K miles for $1500
http://ls1tech.com/forums/parts-clas...-pull-out.html



paying more than $2000 for a used LS1 is asinine, especially since you can find them all over god's creation. hell, I just threw an LS1 away in my trash can at work that just randomly appeared out of nowhere - that's how easy they are to find....

and here's an LS1 and T56 combination selling for $2300 !!!!! http://ls1tech.com/forums/parts-clas...t56-setup.html



I can go all day.......
