E30 or E30 M3 or Compact E36

Postby jody71 » Fri Feb 21, 2014 10:21 pm

What would the BMW of choice be then, Rally wise and why?!

I'm mid way through an E30 build, which will be more tarmac spec by the time its finished. I'm thinking of building a proper job just wondering what to start with and why!

How much effort to make one Escort competitive?!

What do you mean by proper job? What engine etc?

My E30 is s54 powered, not sure how that set up fairs up rally wise. I'd presume its a bit weighty, thats the draw to the s14 e30 m3 good engine base but maybe over all car too heavy?

Really any engine is possible as I want to get it right if I spend the time and money doing it!

S54 would be great but its 3.2! If you could work out how to get it 3.0 you'd be fine. S14 power is good but expensive to build.

About 30kg more fully fitted! :shock: sump might be an issue if I remember in a compact, but don't quote me on it!
