We complete a full engine conversion on our 1989 E30 BMW 320i. We bought this JDM model with a questionable history, including an engine that was broken so in this episode we replace it with something EPIC!

    • @Joe Alex people swap them all the time so they could end up finding one with a 1jz in it and the fact it doesn't have a turbo is why its great, cause you get to put one in. also they all come with a 2JZ GE stock but people swap in the 2JZ GTE and the 1JZ GTE with the exception of the Altezza which is the Japanese version of the car and comes a couple weird variant engines. but if you import from America there's lots in great condition with the 2JZ waiting for the turbo. plus there cheap with usually no rust cause they dont need to salt their roads. And i would never expect any car enthusiast to know every car out there so i figure did give them a simple run down of the car incase they weren't familiar. i mean i live on the over side of the world from them, i have never been to Australia, only thing i know about the car scene out there is these guys and all they drive is subaru's, ricers and some of the most respectable vehicles that just where not born to go fast. anything else you wanna pick holes at?

  • for the people who can't always get the help of someone profesional when they find rust like that on a car, dont worry. buy/rent or borrow a welder and get some sheet metal and a plier. You literally cant make it worse, so just give it a go. Bad welds and a ugly job is 10x better than rust

I must say I like the little mods that are fitted with the new baffled oil sump and oil filter relocation kit as it well and truly helps with ease of access for minor servicing.

  • As an aussie classic BMW owner I fully support this and don't listen to the nay-sayers. What people around the world don't appreciate is that you work with what you can use. BMWs in Australia were twice the price and hardly ever came with big engines or man trans. We've got about 5% of what you can get in Europe or USA and good luck finding a s50 or s52, and because the bell housing is integral to the german trans, good luck finding a manual since the m20 or m30 days. We can get a small amount of LSx so that makes sense. Even turboing a BMW i6 is a pain due to the RHD steering column. Personally I want another BMW but this time a touring, like a e46 330i touring or a e39 540 touring but they never sold them here (E:only 320i for the e46 or 530i max for the e39) and they're all auto. I'd love a 330 or 530 or a 540i manual trans touring but they don't seem to have ever been offered here - we just got smaller engined and/or overpriced autos so we don't have the bmw build options anyway. MCM have done 1-2 LSx so it's not boring for us, the barra don't fit (and they've done barras before), 2jz would be boring as it's been done a lot before elsewhere.
