1988 E30 M3 with S52 Engine and OBDI Conversion

We bought two engines and have two cars for this project. The first car to receive the upgrade is Fred's 1988 E30 M3. The stock S14 is a beautifully engineered engine based on the early 1980's Formula One engines. Unfortunately, it is just not enough power. The S52 with the OBDI conversion, 540i HFM, custom chip and larger fuel injectors will put out something in the range of 285 hp. That is almost 100 hp over the stock S14 engine. (and almost 200hp over my 318i!)

S14 coming out.
