    Default E28 M535i BiTurbo from Finland

    Hi!

    I have been following this forum for quite a while now. Decided to make a thread of my project Beamer.
    I live in Helsinki, Finland. Have been into cars since i got my licence, ~16years.

    I copied this thread from another forum, so the dodded lines mark end and beginning of original posts.

    Bought the car little over a year ago, in October 2012. It's a -85 model and has done ~330000km (little over 200000miles)
    The car seemed to to be in good condition for its age, little did i know how much would i have to do rust repairs.

    This is how the car stood the day i bought it.
    There is some damage on drivers side quarter panel, a tree had fallen beside the car and a branch hit the panel.








    Options list.
    S300A ZENTRALVERRIEGELUNG ELEKTRISCH (Central locking with anti-theft system)
    S311 ELEKTRISCHER BEIFAHRERSPIEGEL (Electronic side mirrors)
    S350A WAERMESCHUTZGLAS GRUEN, RUNDUM (Therm.insulat.glass green)
    S403A GLASDACH, ELEKTRISCH (Glass roof, electrical)
    S410A FENSTERHEBER, ELEKTRISCH VORN (Window lifts, electric, front)
    S498A KOPFSTUETZEN IM FOND (Headrests mechanically adjustable, rear)
    S500A SCHEINW.WASCHANL./INTENSIVREINIGUNG (Headl.washer system/intensive cleaning)
    S820 Nordland-Ausfuehrung (North country equipment)
    S850A ZUSAETZL. TANKFUELLUNG EXPORT (Additional Export tank filling)
    S860A SEITLICHE BLINKLEUCHTEN VORN (Additional turn indicator lamp)


    First idea was to get the car back in to trafic, but the project got "a little" out of hand.

    Pictures of the interior, seats are in good condition. Little repairs to drivers seat needed:






    No major rust damage in trunk after removing upholstery:


    Better picture of quarter panels damage:


    Engine bay:


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    First things first, before i even started the project i bought a set of OZ Futura wheels from a friend, 9"x17" and 10"x17".
    Later found out that these where original Arden wheels from AJ4 or AJ6.





    Rear wheel:


    Front wheel:



    Specs:
    Front wheel 9"x17" ET6
    Rear wheel 10"x17" ET19

    Tried them on:







    Little too big tires on wheels when i got them. Ordered 215/45 for front and 245/40 for rear.

    It was time to start the rust repairs on January 2013. Started by making parts for new accelerator pedal mount:

    Rust damage was found after i removed foor matt and sound insulation. The windshield frame had rusted and water leaked
    in. All the sound insulation was soaked.

    Pictures of the damage:














    Accelerator pedal mount ready:




    The car looked like this on 6th of january:


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Next got the engine and gearbox out.



    Some rust in the front corners






    The engine


    Getrag 265, previous owner had this overhauled:


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    It wasnt long before the project got totally out of hand, and decided make this a twin turbo..

    Took a break from fixing doors and started fitting the turbos to the engine.

    Had to make more room to the passenger side. So a new motor mount was needed.
    Old mount and a jig, made the jig so that the new mount would be 10mm longer than the original:


    Engine lifted 10mm from passenger side, no mount.


    New mount on the jig:

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Christmas vacation 2013..

    Started work on intake manifolt modification.
    Little hole cut to the manifolt:


    Throttle body in its new place with new flange:


    Made bracket for throttle cable:




    The original throttle body flange will be welded suht and tidyed up:


    Bought a RHD throttle cable a while back, sould be long enough..

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Finished scraping the rust protection goo from the under carriage. What a pain in the a** it has been.









    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Greetings from Estonia, neighbor !

    Amazing work you have done there. I have also an e28, which waits for rust damage repairs. After reading your thread I have a lot more confidence to do it. Also I noticed there is 2 days between our birthdays. :P


    Keep up the good work!

    You have some crazy skills and unbelievable patience.
    I've seen e28's with less rust go to scrap yard , so it's nice to see you bringing one back on the road.
    Good luck with the rest of your build, and keep up the good work!

    NOO! No E28 should go to scrap yard, especially if its not rusted bad..
    Im thinking of building another e28 (or e23) to be my next winter/daily driver (possibly with M52B28 or M57D29. If you have good candidates there, i could come over and pick one up..

    There was two reasons. Firstly i wanted to keep the cars identity, original M-car. Also the donor car had rust, just in other places than this. By combining two i got one!

    Yes, im going to rebuild the engine and no, im not going to lower the compression ratio.
    I have one friend who has M30B35 with similar twin turbo setup running 430bhp, other friend has single turbo M30B35 running ~660bhp. Both with stock pistons and connection rods!!
    Actually the 430hp one has completely stock engine internals apart from ARP head bolts and Cometic head casget.

    Have been working under the car for past couple days, further cleaning and masking parts that i dont want to get stone chip coat on.

    Today was time for seam sealer. Tomorrow ill paint parts of the floor pan with epoxy primer and apply some more seam sealer.
    Hopefully i can spray new stone chip coat on sunday. ..and surface paint on monday or tuesday.

    Ill post pics when i have some progress that i can take picture of..
