    Hey guys, I was toying with the idea of a super charger but my engine is on it's last legs, I don't want to replace with another weak 328 engine. Iv heard of a lot of swaps involving supra turbo and twin turbo engine. Any one know of a garage where I can drop my car off with a wad of cash and pick it up later with 450hp+? I dont have the space or tools to do this myself :(

    To-do list:
    1JZ-GTE conversion, Z3 rack, poly bush, Respray.

    Done list:
    Short shifter, M50 manifold, Headlights, Induction kit, Front+Rear strut braces, Carbon badges, M3 diffuser, Illuminated gear knob, Body work (Rust ETC), Smoked LED Rears. Trims painted black, 18 button OBC, Dash rings, Adjustable rear camber arms, EBC brakes, New rims, M3 mirrors, Adjustable top mounts, Coil overs, ICE, Exhaust, LSD.
    See my project thread

    Insurance on an m5 is stupid, parts are expensive and Iv already spent 4.5k on this car to make it look, feel and handle how I like, I can't just give up on it. I miss the power of the 335 :( I wouldn't mind spending 5k on an engine conversion for it, 450 odd bhp for 5k? Yes please :-D

    There has to be a garage out there that takes on these kind of jobs

    To-do list:
    1JZ-GTE conversion, Z3 rack, poly bush, Respray.

    Done list:
    Short shifter, M50 manifold, Headlights, Induction kit, Front+Rear strut braces, Carbon badges, M3 diffuser, Illuminated gear knob, Body work (Rust ETC), Smoked LED Rears. Trims painted black, 18 button OBC, Dash rings, Adjustable rear camber arms, EBC brakes, New rims, M3 mirrors, Adjustable top mounts, Coil overs, ICE, Exhaust, LSD.
