Project E39 M5: Yokohama Advan GT Wheels and & Nitto Invo Tires 

by Martin Gonzales

After installing the StopTech Trophy Brake System on our Project BMW E39 M5 we unfortunately, or fortunately depending on how you look at it, had to say goodbye to our stock wheel package. The OE mesh wheels were not designed to clear huge multi piston calipers and neither the front or rear wheels would clear our new brake kit. So we had no other choice but to do a long-needed upgrade to our project's wheels and tire package. Enter Yokohama Wheels and Nitto Tire!


 

Project E39 M5: StopTech Front & Rear Trophy Kit Installation

by Martin Gonzales

In our Brake Refresh Article we maximized the capabilities of our E39 M5's OE braking system by using StopTech's Sport Axle Pack, which includes slotted rotors, stainless steel braided brake lines and Sport brake pads. Front brake ducting was also added in order to improve on our project's susceptibility to brake fade. Though these improvements left us with a braking system that performed better than stock, the E39 M5's brake system has a lot of room for improvement. We will turn the knob to 11, with StopTech's Trophy kit!


 

Project SR E30: Part 3 - Radiator, Intercooler and Piping

by Nikita Rushmanov

Last time we ended with the SR20 all mounted up inside the E30. Now it’s time to start plumbing it. In this episode, we will be mounting the radiator, intercooler and condenser (yes, you heard that right) as well as making the intercooler and intake piping.


 

Project SR E30: Part 2 - Making Custom Motor Mounts

by Nikita Rushmanov

In the last episode, we managed to make an SR20DET fit inside an E30. Now it’s time to actually make it stay there. In this installment, we will be fabricating custom motor and trans mounts.


 

Project E39 M5: K&N Filters and HPS Intake Hoses

by Martin Gonzales

In this installment of Project BMW E39 M5 we will test two very easy to install intake upgrades- the high flow K&N drop-in filters and HPS Performance Parts silicone intake hose kit. We will be doing individual dyno tests for each part to see if they can free up the S62's intake tract and yield some measurable power gains. 


 

Project SR E30: Part 1 - Test Fitting the Engine

by Nikita Rushmanov

So, you built an s13 daily with an SR20 in it. It’s reliable, it’s fast, it makes awesome chu-chu noises, you put 5,000 miles on it, but then you realize that there is one thing this car doesn’t have- 4 doors. That is the exact predicament we were in.


 


Project E46 BMW M3: Part 19 – Rear Trailing Arm Bushings and Maintenance

by Pablo Mazlumian

BMW rear trailing arm bushings are rubber and prone to cracking. Ours cracked and rendered the car uncontrollable at the limit. We give you step-by-step how-to on installing Powerflex polyurethane bushings from BimmerWorld!


 

Project E90 M3: Head to Head with 2016 Mustang GT

by Billy Johnson

Packing more than 50whp over stock, our Project E90 M3 took to the track at Palm Beach International Raceway (ROAD COURSE) to see how it stacks up against a 2016 Ford Mustang GT.  Both cars have similar power, weight, and are equipped with similarly sized Continental ExtremeContact DW tires.  How will our modified 8 year old sport sedan benchmark compare to a modern “pony car” that’s transitioned away from its roots to become a corner carver? Read on to find out.


 

Project GMW E46 Turbo: Part 1 - Introduction

by Mark Hutchison

When you think of a high-performance E46 3 Series BMW, you may automatically think of the ever popular M3.  It’s true that the E46 M3 produces great power with its fabled S54 inline six. It also looks amazing with its distinct fender vents and aggressive front fascia. While this 2001 325ci BMW may not be an M3, it will decimate all other cars with an affordable and reliable power plant from an American classic – the GM LS series engine.
