Good morning ladies and gentlemen. I'm not a BMW owner yet, however I am here to so some research on a car that I am quite interested in, in this case an E34 530i - chiefly I am/was after some data on the nikasil/alusil M60 engines, however I hope that if all goes well, I'll be able to help you out as searching this forum will help me.
A little bit of background about me. I am a dedicated petrolhead through and through, I started out on bikes when I was younger and braver, and have moved onto cars in the past few years, however from the age of 6 or 7 if it had and engine, I wanted in, so helped my dad with my first clutch change at the tender age of 7 and haven't looked back.
I am into high performance, preferably forced induction vehicles, usually very old, usualy very cheap, and usually very high mileage, and follow the PPC mantra of No Bodykits, No Speakers, No BS. That and Ricky Bobby, I just wanna go fast. So there you have it, some kind of northern redneck with a thing for spanners and grease...
To date I have owned 3 Saab Turbos including my current car, a 9000 Aero which aside from being wrongwheeldrive is getting on for my ideal car, it is pushing somewhere north of 300bhp looks like a crock and surprises a lot of folk both on the road and especially on the track. The current stable also includes a 1980 T25 VW Camper, the wife's Renault Megane CC and a couple of project bikes.
So, yeah, let me help you help me to make the ultimate sleeper come track weapon out of an E34!
Thanks for reading, and if you guys are anything like the guys over on the Saab forum I frequent, there will be a request for pics. Well, there are none of the beemer as I haven't got it yet, but heres the Saab. (Sorry)
