The rims remind me of this e36 344i from latvia (Legally swapped in V8, originally a 318is)

@Salss Not that familiar with Latvia's modifying rules, could you explain a illegal v8 swap?

Original ACSchnitzer Typ 2, 8,5j all 4 and ET 13. You can grab two in each hand and run the stairs with them, lightweight as hell!

And what happens if the swap is illegal do they take the car away? And is there any way to see theese rules? Quite interested.

Or as we Croatians do it, slip 50 euros into your license when doing the inspection :lol:

The guy that did it has enough cash to do it legit and its not special anymore if its not legal, anyone can drop any engine in any car, but making it legal is special.

For sure!

750cc spreaders
Cold Air Intake
Walbro 255 Fuel pump
GTTB30 Turbo charger
Bigger FM Intercooler
Spec Stage 2 240mm Clutch and plate.
Camshafts from a T5 engine
Forged internals from Wössner
Cobra Intake / Inlet Pipe
Custom exhaust.

Quick edit: As of now I'm running about 1.6 bars of boost, which translates to roughly 23.2 psi.
I bet I could cream out at least 30 or so more HP and at east 50 more NM, but I use it as a daily and I don't want to be afraid blowing it up every time I do a pull.


I'm not too sure I have that many on this computer in particular. But I did have these two.

You've done a lot of work to it, I'm amazed.

If it's no secret, how much did all that joy cost? Also, the back spoiler, is it a stock Aero kit or an aftermarket piece? I also love the color schemes, with the black matte grill.

Mine is nothing special. VECTOR with a 1.9tid engine and 150hp. Since it was a sport anniversary model, it came with an Aero body kit, suspension and exhaust. I am exploring possibilities what can be done to it, but not overly excited considering it's a diesel.
