hi there, i work for Caterham building the caterham r500, soon to be working on the sp300r ive had my e36 bmw 316i compact for about 5 months now and ive done the usual to it,
stripped it out,
m-sport bumper for it.
plans are high lift cams, ported and polished, new conrods, pistons, bore it out, crankshaft, double valve springs, lightened flywheel, straight prop (no u-j's), exhaust . . . extreme long way around, but my mk2 golf 1.3 running just shy of 187bhp NA is different to the usual engine swap.
im doing drifting track days at the moment but running out of power. now i know everyone says do an engine swap to the 325/28, but i like to do things different, thats where im stuck. i cant find a company for love nor money who sells 316 e36 4 branch manifolds.
anyway here are a few pics ill start a build thread soon.
and the sp300r . . . . . . .
