This E36 M3 Convertible has been converted to speed M50B30 single vanos Turbo putting out ~500hp (446whp) and ~486ftlbs torque (440 wheel)
The car itself is standard apart from the aftermarket "18 wheels and lowering springs.The car suspension, brakes, differential and other mechanicals are in perfect working order.The last time had look at the softtop everything looked alright, but since have had it it has had the hardtop for 99.999% of the time.The HVAC system has been disabled as one flap in the system is stuck and will drain the battery as it never powers down.The car body shell itself needs TLC.MOT has run out.

The car has more than 268ft-lbs torque everywhere above 2000rpm with peak torque (486ft-lbs) reached at 3750rpm and maintained to 5000rpm.
The car could also be bought as source of parts for your E36 upgrade as all the turbo related parts and M3 bits are direct bolt in to make your E36 500hp.The cost of replicating this kind of kit is well above whatever this will get sold for so if you are considering your own turbo conversion consider saving time and effort getting complete ready setup.
Due to the age of the car and the complexity of the turbo conversion the car is sold as is.No swaps or exchanges.
