Project:BMW 357ti

My 325ti was rearended so i bought the clubsport that was ever so gracefully sideswiped/tboned into a curb and totalled. This brings us to project number THREE…. :suicide:

Finally picking the car up on Tuesday after being dicked out of the chassis in california. This one is black on black/greay and is a sport. Comes with some aftermarket rims, exhaust, clears, 4cylinder with auto transmission, and some other stuff that isnt appealing to me.












For drivetrain. 5.7L LS1 from a 1998 Camaro As for the drivetrain, i will be mating a lightweight flywheel, Ls7 clutch kit, and T56 6spd manual transmission. From the back of the tranny, i will be having a custom driveshaft made to mate up with my 4.10 Limited slip differential. The mounting plate on the ti is failrly weak so ill be using the non-ti mounting plate and welding in some custom mounts to hang the differential. E30 6cyl axles will be used to distribute power to some pretty decent rubber. Ill be doing most of the custom parts myself as well as employing a few others for other small projects that go hand in hand with this major build.

Currently i have some new M3 brakes to go on the car that i traded for my old Mille Miglia MM-2s. These will do for the time being or until i realize i need a real bbk.

The rear end will be comprised of a 4.10 E30 differential, 6cyl axles, non-ti multipoint diff cover, custom welded mounting tabs with reinforcements, custom driveshaft, and a few other new aftermarket parts and bushings.

Most of you know of my deathtrap Moreagrun metallic that i pick EVERYTHING up in, so here are more pics of that lil beast. 225k and still goin. I need to give it some tlc.Eat your hearts out!!!! :suspect: :suspect: :suspect:

Next update is is suspension. Ive chosen to go with TCKlines True Match S/a coilovers, camber plates,Non-M H&R front barbarian sway bar, rear sway bar delete, custom rear strut bar, unknown front strut bar, and some custom chassis stiffening devices.

Ive been tossig up the idea, 3.73 or 4.10, still leaning towards the 3.73 but i already have a 4.10. Decided that the mounting plate is going to be the non-m diff cover, polyurethane bushings, and a custom mount kit welded to the body. Ive checked out this one site with a LsMcoupe, they used the mcoupe cover, which has cooling louvers, then welded in some 1/4″ sheet metal, then bolted the cover/diff to it. They left the single eared bushing installed and everything, i can only assume this just added to the structural integrity and to take some of the extra torssional force off that single ear. I really like the mcoupe cover since it has the cooling louvers, but i dont think i want to constantly tear it.

For the interior, ive decided on building a car pc with GPS, mp3, satelite radio, bluetooth, OBD interface, digital guaging for monitoring the engine and its performance, possibly wifi, and im looking into something like ive seen in a buddy’s mustang where he could tune on the go and like on the M6 where you can choose your hp level. I thought this would be a very cool feature to have if i decide to let my mom drive it somewhere, get lazy for an oil change and dial it down to take in, achieve better highway mileage on the fly, or anything else i can think of. It could also make it easy to tune if i mod the engine more and want live feedback on whats going on and tune it properly. Ill be using the sedan dash, possibly converting to digital hvac for the retrofit of the 9″ double din touch screen. Looking into possible battery and alternator options for this whole electronics deal and using a laptop to run everything.

Im going to attempt a push start system that doesnt require you to turn the key first, then push a button, seems to be a very retarded thing to have to do when starting an engine. Ill look more into that when i pull everything together. Maybe ill just do it all digitally; have the screen turn on with a hybernate screen of access code and a real digital button for “engine start” and start the engine from the computer. How cool, yet rediculously useless would that be? 

Ive been searching around for the rims i want but nothing has really caught my eye until the other night when i found some cheap bent up oz mitos. Contacted the seller, hopefully theyre still available.

Cant really think of anything else off the top of my head, but this project is constantly mainstreaming 24/7 in my madula.

And the project resumes. Traveling to Louisville, Kentucky on Tuesday to pick up my new ti. Black on black sport model, supersprint exhaust, non-stock 16s with new tires, clears, drop, and AUTOMATIC. lol. What makes people order 4cyls with autos. *sigh*

This past weekend, i did a bit more cleaning of the new ti. I pulled that ratty old monroe suspension and installed an Mroadster Sachs suspension along with the xbrace. Stopped by the dealership, bought 4 new centercaps, 4 window “will break again” clips, and chatted up on pricing some more parts for the ti in the near future. I also removed those crappy clears that everyone and their mom loves on this forum in favor of some clean ambers.

When i purchased the car, the washer squirters didnt know which windshield they wanted to clean, so i dug in and found the culprits and now both windshields clean properly.

Looked into the a/c, to see if it actually would work or if it was screwed up. Upon checking out the engine bay more closely, i found that the wires to the compressor were chewed up, so i gabbed some new lines and reran it to the compressor, walla, cold a/c.

Everyone loves the stock headlights right….no, not at all and neither do i. I robbed my moreagrun ti for the headlights and 6000k hids. Next are the fogs. Ill be using zkw fog assemblies, 6000k slim kit, and changing the lows for 4300k.

I then moved on to the audio, trying to figure out why only 2 of 10 speakers worked. 3 are blown, the others had some very homemade/modified wiring and caused them not to work with a good head unit installed. A good 30 mins later, i had 6 working speakers, cant seem to get the kick panel on the drivers to work just yet.

More updates soon.








Wow, over 8 days of neglect, i guess i should update you guys.

45 Minutes of removing pedals, hydraulic lines, and clutch parts
1 Hour 45 Minutes of removing a M50b25, Getrag 5 Speed
Manual transmission and front Driveshaft
3 Hours 30 Minutes to remove an M44B19 possibly M42B18, GM 4 Speed
Automatic transmission and front driveshaft
8 Hours of installing three pedal manual assembly, M50B25, Getrag 5 speed manual transmission, X-brace, clutch hydraulics, new M3 slave cylinder, OBDII to OBDI conversion, EWS delete,
Auto to manual electric conversion, dismantling of other interior pieces for post cleaning

Was a good sunday. I started around 3pm and worked on an off while chatting on aim, eating food, and BSn with friends on the phone. Got done in time for work the next morning, was 10 mins late though after trying to clean up the driveway.

First impression, the 4.44 is such a short gear ratio for this engine but torque and power is ALWAYS there.

Next on the list is to get the interior dressed up and wait for my money on the T-56 6spd for the LS1 then its mount time.

For you actual Styling guys:

Tint; Ive had 20% on the Moreagrun and loved it but was a bit on the dark side at night. Ive been contemplating 25% or even 30% to regain some clarity and class with this one, as i think 20% is a bit too….idk…dark and for the younger crowd that dont want to be seen and such. It takes away the appeal of the car IMO.

Here are some pics of the progress taken this sunday…

Hmmm. A box showed up today and i couldnt remember what it was ….LOLWUT!




O yea, thats right a bunch of ///M crap.

Did some work, 10-21-09, mainly just interior work. I installed this used amp that i got from a friend of mine, my old 12″ rockford, and my headunit from my Moreagrun ti. From there, i removed my seats and cleaned the carpet. It had obviously been broken into before, as i found window glass underneath both seats. There had also been an E36 cupholder malfunction at some point, as there was red fluid pulled from the carpet when using the carpet cleaning machine.

This is only Phase I to the interior clean up. I still want to reclean the carpet, install my leather interior, clean up the dash for resale, purchase of the sedan dash, push button start, 9″ touch screen, and a few other things.

Small update i guess. Installed Keyless Entry and swapped more of my other interior into this one to complete it.

Interior After…so far:

Small update for you guys. Decided to go ahead and rip into the fog light system yesterday. For the past few days, i couldnt get either of the fog to work, so i pulled the switch and found that it was unplugged. How it came unplugged, i have no idea. I plugged it back in and Voila, fogs worked. Thats when i cut the OE lines, installed some OE 9006 wiring and socket, then hooked up some Prolumen HIDs in 3000k. Not my favorite color, but it works i guess.For today, i decided to fix this pesky little oil leak that ive been experiencing. At first, i thought it might be leaking from the headgasket, then i jacked it up, propped the throttle body open at about 4k, then sat under the car and waited for the leak. It took about 30 seconds to see that it was just a VERY bad valve cover gasket. I pulled into the driveway, popped the hood, pulled the valve cover, pulled the front head cover, advanced the intake cam timing, sealed the gaskets and valve cover, then put it all back together. Took me about 1h 30m to complete that job. While i was at it, i did an oil change with 0w40 Fully synthetic as well as a bottle of Lucas engine oil stabilizer (the stuff is great). I let it idle for a few minutes, to build up some heat and oil pressure, then gave it a few throttle blings, instantly noticing a change in pitch from the CAI. I let it warm to temp, yea yea, not supposed to do it, but i do it. After it warmed up, i took it for a test drive.

Low end was much better, pulled a lot harder than before. Midrange, was a slight bit better. Top end, i dont know, i think it may have lot a bit but since i dont have a dyno, i cant really tell. It pulls great through every gear and is slightly better in town than before. On the highway, the engine pulled through the gears and when shifted, it was very smooth, like it “should”, not somewhat jerky and raw. Match revving also seemed a bit easier and smoother than before. I have yet to test fuel MPG. The ti has a 14 gallon tank and im usually able to pull 25 city miles per gallon from it and about 30 highway miles. Hopefully it improves a mpg or so.

Now, pics. 











So, tried on a different tire size today, pretty sure its not the final decision, but damn close to it. I used an 18×9″ Mille Miglia MM-II-2, ET40 with a 275/35/18 Kumho Ecsta ASX at work. I was pretty surprised how nicely it fit on the rim. I also tried it on my Breyton Imagine 18×9.5 rim and it fit just a bit better, IMO, but not too much. I honestly think it looks very nice, but cuts it close back there. Once the body work is done and i add a nice 7mm spacer or something, if i go with that ET, itll fit perfectly back there. In comparison, the other rims are Mille Miglia MM-II-2 18×8″, ET20, and have 225/40/18s on them.Enjoy.

Also, dont mind the exhaust, im getting that taken care of this friday.










Got some more work done last weekend but never posted up. Did the rest of the leather conversion, tinted the windows, then some detailing.










I purchased a set of ball joints
on the December 8, 2009 and recieved the package on December 10, 2009 with free shipping.
These parts look VERY good and spot on with their OE counterparts. I cant say that i have a complaint except for the fact that the control arms outer ball joints are the old school design rather than the updated versions that are solid and quite beefy. O well. If i were to put a mileage quote on these, 50k-75k would be my guess, as thats close to when OE
ball joints start getting loose or torn. BTW, the bushings are SOLID CENTERED like the m3, non-offset with corresponding strut assembly and strut hat.

As for the 357ti, i finally recieved the apexcone kits, but as usual, ddm failed and sent me the incorrect temps for BOTH kits. The tires i ordered finally came in…rears only. The fronts should be in tomorrow. Next on the list is the rear subrame setup, which is the 4.10LSD, e30 abs axles, abs shims, weld in alignment kits for camber and toe setting, new poly and aluminum bushings, and some paint of course. Once that is done, all that is left is the engine and tranny install, then to get the body work done to match my new 285/30/18s.



Mounted up a 285 on a 9.5″ rim. Bulges a little bit but does whats needed. Sits on the ti perfectly, Et42.



6 hours later. Definitely went slow on removing this engine, shouldnt have taken any more than 3 hours tops. Found out why the engine was overheated, of course, cooling pipe at the rear of the head was broken. O well…Pulled the engine and tranny, then installed the ls1.
















I had the day off, so i dug further into the electric side of my swap and got that all worked out. Then i moved on to cleaning things up since it wasnt too shitty out.


The
parts car in the garage with the 285s. I gave it a whipe down since i didnt have time to clean it before throwing it in the garage.


And a small update…

update:

Small update:
Possibly purchasing my transmission here in the next couple of days, found a decent deal on one.
PCM shipped for tuning.

Steering setup.

Bodywork started.




No one said i had to write nor take pics of EVERYTHING i do with the ls1. You could always watch and post in the engine swap section. Most of those guys have the money on hand to complete their projects rather quickly. I, on the other hand, work most every day with a low income job for the time being. I also pay cash for everything i buy, havent used credit since 2007.Small update, for those who care…

Purchased a T56 from LKQ today, and is supposed to ship out tomorrow.

Took my power/drivetrain to work and did some work on them. Installed some missing pushrods and retorqued all the rocker arms. Installed a brand new alternator, as the other one was completely seized up. New starter installed. New coil pack nuts installed. EGR setup removed completely.





As for drivetrain, my brand new bell housing came in as well as my clutch and flywheel kit. I installed a new throwout bearing, pilot bearing, clutch, flywheel, had the flywheel resurfaced (used low mileage, but wanted it like new), aircraft stripped the paint that was painted onto the T56, new bell housing to block bolts, and a few other small things.

So, the engine hoist deaded itself the other day while trying to install the engine/tranny assembly and let me with a bum leg, trying to move it out the way from hitting everything on the way down, so it left me with some down time and i got a few other things accomplished until my new hydraulic unit came in.

Got the new unit installed and went at it again. Got the engine and tranny in and started mocking everything in place and trying out new ideas that have been streaming in my head.
