It is going into a e30 m3 with a Hartge H35-24 oil pan.

I will post pics. I don’t have photobucket and flicker any more. They want to charge for my pics. Any other site I can post pics?

Thanks.

I'll be following this as I'm tempted to turbo mine as well. Is the engine already in the e30? I not, I'd focus on that hurdle first then see what kind of room you have left...it won't be much.

I have ben ordering turbo parts for the s38. I do have a PPF turbo manifold. I need to modify Hartge H35-24 oil pan for oil return. No the motor is not in my red e30 m3. There is room for turbo install.
