So I've been on here for a few years and Im finally starting to get things going with modding my GS300.
My bestfriend bought a Aristo swapped SC300 while stationed in Colorado before be was deployed to Afghanistan. The SC is a total train wreck, his friend is taking the motor out of it tomorrow and the plan is for him to ship the motor to me. I asked him to do a compression test and take the twins off to see what condition theyre in. If theyre bad I'll go ahead and piece together a turbo kit.
This is the SC300. Horrible condition.
Picked up a ton of goodies from Sewell. Got the 120k package, Timing belt, Water Pump and other goodies.
Put the car in the air to see where trans fluid was leaking turned out the pan gasket was rotting.
Got caught by my brother fighting with the old gasket, my gasket removing tool went MIA so I was carefully using a knife and a razor.

I havent done anything to the GS because its not a daily driver, never was so it mainly sits I'll drive it a once or twice a week. Ive been itching to get the mods going lately and my friend offering me the GTE is right on time.
Im not sure if I want to go put the GTE in or just freshen it up and sell it and find a 1st gen GS300 block and a TT HG and go NA-T. The only thing wrong with the GE is the exhaust cam seal is starting to leak a little other than that the GE is boost ready.
Im buying coils soon ( debating on PBM or Ksport), trying to find a set of wheels, nothing aggressive as Im only rolling my fenders. Also gonna get some Clazzio seat covers because my interior isnt the best. If I can find some M35 or LS430 projectors I'll pick those up as well but I need to sand my headlights. My inner tails need love too.
Once I get possession of the GTE I'll decide if I want to put it in my car or not.
My daily is a 08' 535i, looks stock but is tuned and has a few boltons. The boost that im pushing and my *** dyno says shes around 400whp. 335i's with the same mods put down 400-430whp. Its quick and will surprise people but the cars a POS though I hate it, its unreliable as hell.
