(Before i begin, apologies if I seem nieve)
I recently have taken possesion of an E34 525 from a friend at a garage that i use, they were going to break it down and sell it for parts even though it runs perfectly fine. I have been wanting a project for a little while and saw this as a good oppurtunity to fullfil my passion for cars so i bought it for 200 smackers. Sooo.. I would like to go 'crazy' on it, I haven't decided what route i want to go down as yet, be it fast street/trackday/drift car but either way would like to increase the power/performance/handling as much as i can. I have no real budget in place (a couple hundred £ a month maybe) on doing work, so it will be more a of a long term project, i would like to do most of the work myself in order to increase my knowledge and experience of car mechanics/tuning.
Im looking for advice/suggestions/help and useful websites/contacts from you guys on:
Engine performance mods e.g breathing mods, headwork, the big s/c vs turbo debate and transmission etc
Handling/chasis mods e.g suspension, brakes, wheels & tyres etc
My best friend will be giving me a hand aswell but he's into the styling sort of side, so he's got some ideas on doing a DIY paintjob and putting on a bodykit, so any suggestions on what might look good would be great aswell. Me on the other hand, Im dying to get my hands dirty.
Thanks guys and thanks for reading my life story lol
Please feel free to put forward your opinions and suggestions, I look forward to considering them.
