Ok, so you have the coin for a 383 conversion, a "Stage 2 shift kit" , but no time or money to get it tuned? Sure, I'll be right over.

He says it has a blower. Where is the pulley for it? And 430 hp from a 383 with a blower is pretty loving lame... You can easily get 400 from a NA 383.

I think it's just a tunnel ram, which is a tuned intake that raises the carb/air cleaner way up. You can put a butterfly set on it, like this guy did, and it looks like a blower to the untrained eye/ear. Usually, however, it fools passersby, and not the owner.

Yeah, that looks legit. NASCAR teams usually build a bunch of cars for each track/testing purposes, as spares or to test a new setup or whatever. If they don't work out or aren't used, they tend to sell them off for shockingly low prices. The school I went to had dozens of old NASCAR cars, most in full race trim, picked up for a pittance or donated. One was only half a second from qualifying for the Daytona 500, so they just wrote off the whole car.

I know that at least a few years ago (not sure now) that Limerock was flooded with Craftsman Truck series race trucks that were picked up for a pittance. Very powerful and simple racecars if a bit weird.

Beautiful wagon:



quote:

This car was originally a 530iT with a 3.0L V8 and automatic transmission. It came loaded from the factory as the top of the line (and most expensive) BMW Touring at $50,490 in it's last year of production (11/95 prod. date). Factory equipment includes full Parchment leather interior with power/heated front seats, dual front airbags, split/fold down rear seats with rear pet net that separates the cargo area from the passenger compartment, cargo mat and retractable cargo cover, dual zone climate control, 6 disc changer, 10 speaker stereo (now 12) with 8 channel amplifier, factory alarm with remote entry, double pano sunroof, power/heated mirrors, ellipsoid head lights, fog lights, heated door locks and washer nozzles, radio antenna integrated into the rear side glass, etc... everything works.

All work to create this vehicle has been performed by a BMW Master Technician at the largest BMW dealership in the region using BMW documentation, OEM parts, special tools, and equipment to factory standards to create a vehicle exactly as it would have been built by BMW if they had ever offered this car. No special fabrication was required to perform this conversion so all parts used are available off the shelf directly from any BMW dealership should any service be required in the future. Fault memory can be read out normally. All parts used are 100% compatible. No corners have been cut and attention has been paid to BMW heritage in the planning of this project in order to create something very special but also in keeping with BMW tradition.

Professionally refinished in Imola Red (e39 M5, e46 M3/ZHP, e53 4.6/4.8iS, Z3 M coupe/roadster, e85/86 M coupe/roadster), with staggered 18" M parallel wheels as fitted to the e34 M5 in later production. Winter tires are available in 245/40R18-F, 275/35R18-R Blizzak LM-60 and Summer tires available are Continental ExtremeContact DWS non-runflats in 225/40R18, 255/R35R18 and Potenza REO50A rft in the same size. The engine chosen was originally installed in an e38 740i and mated to an automatic transmission making it less likely to have been abused in it's previous life. It was disassembled for a complete inspection and reseal before being installed in it's new home, about 3k mi ago. It had covered a very easy 40k mi before the donor vehicle was totalled in a rear end collision. The engine was very clean inside with original cross-hatching visible on all 8 cylinder walls and absolutely no oil sludge present in any part of the block or heads. It's only down 29 hp on an e34 M5 but is up on torque by 68 lb-ft. In addition it has a 6 spd instead of a 5. The suspension is the only system where aftermarket components were used. Dampers are Bilstein Sport and springs are H&R. Every other part of the suspension is tight or new. Anything that was not perfect was replaced. There is still room for improvement and personalization with more great factory and aftermarket upgrades available. Before the extensive reconditioning this vehicle underwent the chassis had approx. 160K mi on it. It now has about 2k more but I am driving it some as I just can't resist. All reciepts are included showing over $5,000 in parts and a reciept for the paint totalling $9,700. Total labor involved is well over 60 hrs @ $130/hr. ($7800+) not including paint and body labor. This totals almost $24,000.

All parts used in the conversion of this vehicle from an automatic to a 6spd manual are brand new with the exception of the transmission itself which was a very low mileage unit from a 540i (same transmission found in an e39 M5). From the pedal pads to the pilot bearing all clutch components, hydraulic and mechanical, are new. The shifter is a B&M short throw and like the clutch system everything is new. The shift knob is exactly the same as used in the 1 series M coupe, current production M5/M6, and E46 3 series ZHP.

All engine and trans mounts, exhaust hangers, gaskets, spark plugs, filters, fluids, and hardware are brand new. The windshield is new Pilkington glass as used on new BMWs. All other glass is original and professionally tinted by the dealer. It isn't super dark but gives the car a more modern look, some practicality, and is very high quality. Even the winshield wipers are new and the washer pump itself has been replaced. The final touch is all new emblems and badges. I also added the 4.4i badges to the front fenders were they are found on the e53 X5 that carries the same engine. The mass air flow sensor and all 4 oxygen sensors are also brand new.

The only aftermarket components on this vehicle are the aforementioned dampers and springs, a very high quality custom fabricated cat back exhaust using a magnaflow muffler (stock cats are still in place and all factory mounting points are retained), Sony audio head unit, and 2-12" MB Quart (German) carbon fiber subwoofers w/ a MATTS Pro Audio amp making the audio system 12 speakers with all channels indepenently amplified by either the factory amp or the added sub amp. These subs and the amp are extremely high quality and were extremely expensive.

All original tools, jack, spare, etc... are still in place, I have all the original owner's manuals, service book, the leather case that all the manuals came in, all keys that came with the vehicle including walet and valet keys. The flashlight in the master key still works. Complete warranty repair history is available.

This is a very unique, reliable, versatile, and powerful vehicle. It is a great alternative to anything new if you love wagons, BMW performance and classic styling. The fuel economy is quite good especially considering the power that this car offers. I average 20-25+ miles per gallon. Obviously it's easy (and fun) to bring that down a lot but even with some pretty regular "spirited driving" I get around 25mpg. While this car does not offer prius fuel efficiency, it's far a better choice from an environmental standpoint. If one considers the massive resources used to build any new car I think it's easy to justify restoring and driving a car like this rather than letting it end up in a junkyard like the disposable vehicles built today inevitably will. I am selling this car because, as fun and unique as it is I really want to do something with a V12 : )

Update! I have added undercarriage shots (I was not able to clean the underside of the car but it should be clear that there is no rust and there are no leaks), and also took the car for a fresh emissions test yesterday. The car passed with flying colors. Emissions are the best indicator of the state of health of an engine.

The ad for this stupid Audi made me chuckle: http://nh.craigslist.org/cto/4393354611.html

quote:

hello there, I have in my possession a 97 audi a4, along with the car comes a sweet turbo charged 1.8 liter gasoline motor. shes a 5 speed so it has a third pedal and you control what gear she needs according to the speed your moving, like when I hit 160 mph I usualy shift into third, you get the point. it is all wheel drive so its great in the snow rain mud grass leaves, you name it you bet this vehicle can overcome it. this beast also comes with tow hitch, looks a little whimpy so I wouldn't tow anything larger that a 2 place car trailer with it. it is red in color so it you already know this things fast. it has prime heated tan leather interior with some minor scratches on the driver seat. The car does not need much to be on the road rippin around because ive put some sweet parts on already such as;
I have painted the rims so they can handle more horsepower
the tires are fresh out the box, still smell like rubber
the exhaust on this thing is a brand spankin new catless 3 inch stainless steel (like what they put on the refrigerators) and it sounds like a one of those super cars you see on the television.
the intake on it... I kept is simple because I didn't want too much horsepower but It has a cone air filter and it sounds pshh pshhh pshhhhhhhh you get the point
it has stickers that have added some noticeable power
I have also added a few coats of paint to a few motor parts to make them faster

the bad
needs a windshield, but who needs to see anyways.
needs a powersteering pump but if you lift weights you should be fine
could use some coilovers, or stock suspension if your into men
has a check engine light on for o2 sensor because real men have cat less exhaust
due to all the horsepower the driver side front cv clicks but I just run it anyways

like I said up top, this car is red so you already know its fast. then take a look under the hood and WHOA is that a 1.8t!??! well yes it is. just added 500hp on top of the 250hp from it being a red car. but that's not all, its all wheel drive, so that means when you really feed the corn to her, ya know really give her the berries she can like do one of those burnout drift things.

im looking to trade for more of a daily driver like a Lamborghini, gtr, or ferrari. but I would settle for a Honda civic as long as it has a lot of stickers so I know its fast. but the car I really want like more than a civic (if you can believe that) is a jetta or gti preferably lowered already or fast or both would be cool too.

remember she does burnouts so make me am offer I can't refuse, and I probly won't refuse it. Thank you for your interest in my vehicle.

I've been looking for a cheap winter Subaru wagon beater and have, of course, been taking a peek at WRX/STI's just for kicks. I can't believe how much people expect to get for these things. I'm guessing most of them took out some ridiculous loan and couldn't pay it off?

I am looking for the same thing (though for more than just a beater) and let me tell you, avoid turbo Subarus if you are looking for a cheap beater. WRX, Forester XT, Legacy GT, Outback XT, I am sure they are great cars but the money they bring is plain stupid. They are always high mileage, modded/beaten to poo poo, rusty, or all three and always expensive.

Non-turbo models can be pretty reasonable.

Yes, anything that's less than four years old with less than 50,000 on it costs literally as much as new. It's maddening. If it's less than 12 years old with less than 150,000 it's at least 10k.
