Bought this the other day, no idea what to do with it can they be turbo charged ?
Great fun drove one a few weeks ago on a track day.
Its quick already.
One of the best IL6 engines ever, 340bhp and 8000rpm. Can't be blown as its too high compression and you're asking for trouble. I fitted one in a space frame car for 500bhp tonne and 0-100 in 7
Great cars...Great value too
I had a CSL.......should never have sold it...Awesome noise
Shame its not on SU's
Sod it......... i just sold a set of them on e-bay :lol:maybe Mr gaskins got a set spare
So is all the RHS shoved-in then Terry?
Well done Rob
narrows the goal posts a bit now
nice one Tel, you can always sell of the suspension bits to matt in case he lends his car to another one of his cookie cutter mates :lol:
They're a nightmare to map if you don't use the standard ecu, think £1k for an ecu before you take it anywhere.
You can run them on the standard ecu and retain standard diagnostics.
My initial thoughts were to put e36m3 running gear in a 240z. £1500 for a 320bhp N/A engine isn't bad.
Be a nice breaker
esp if it isn't hit in the frt aswell

Franky your not suggesting i put the M3 engine in my Z lol

Nope just the bumper missing of the front, loads of goodies on e-bay soon
apart from the centre console sliding lid
Just an idea
Yep thats mine.
Hmm interesting did you use the original ecu or stand alone, ews????? diff sensor signal???
I used the original ECU, kept the ews(matched key chip/ecu/ews box). It runs fine without the diff sensor signal however I did connect it to the ecu in the end just so I didn't have any fault codes showing at all.
Ok Franky you have talked me into it Im going to play with the z for the 1st 6 months or so of next year while im sussing out the m3 conversion eek:) what do you all think of my plan which is, set the engine and box on a test stand and transfer the ecu,loom ignition swich and the ews ( anti theft key reader system) i have heard that you can have the ecu flashed so that it is not looking for inputs from unwanted sensors
Terry, think long and hard before you rip apart your lovely and finished L6 car.
If you have the resources why not build a second car, get it out of your system and then decide which to keep.
An M3 hybrid is an interesting build but you are spoiling a great car to do it.
