Is your battery in the trunk or the back seat area?

I relocated it to the trunk in the spare tire area. 0awg wire from the trunk to the in the engine bay. Much cleaner in trunk

WOW! Kickass Build! Is the block stock, or did you strenghten the pistons and rods. The M30 is a pretty strong engine, but the turbo is going to put the rest of the engine to the test!

So I assume your intake point is at the turbo. Are you putting an intake filter somewhere in there? Not much space with the down tube to the intercooler. And I suppose winshield washing is now a long lost memory!

Quite a transformation from a sad looking old 635 with an upside-down roundel to what you now have!

Can't wait to hear this beast roar!...

The block has forged rods with stock pistons. The head is fully built with IEM cam, heavy duty rockers and springs. Should be good for an easy 500whp on pump gas and 700ish on race gas / e85.

It’ll have a filter on the turbo inlet. There’s enough room to squeeze something in there. Most of the windshield washing system is removed but I’ll run new pumps and hoses when I get to final touches.

I saw your post on the FB group asking about brake options. I have 4 piston Brembos with a two piece rotor (aluminum hat) on my '86 Turbo.
