Other than that car looked stock and they left the 325i badge there.
Bmw m3 e46 v8.
An e46 gtr came to life in february 2001 powered by the p60b40 a 3997 cc v8 producing 493 hp 368 kw.
Showed pics of the install.
Even though its is 420 day this is no drug induced delusion what started with more of a dare has grown into a wicked track car build for.
The bmw m3 is a high performance version of the bmw 3 series developed by bmws in house motorsport division bmw m gmbhm3 models have been produced for every generation of 3 series since the e30 m3 was introduced in 1986.

I got an email a while back with pics of a black e46 motorsport that had a e92 m3 v8 fitted.
The initial model was available in a coupe body style with a convertible body style added soon after.
Welcome to another of vorshlags detailed build threads this time chronicling possibly one of the craziest cars we have ever built.
The bmw m3 gtr competed in the gt2 class of the american le mans series in 2001.
The bonnet had to be modded.
While appearing stock on the outside it is powered by an s65 v8 and 6 speed manual transmission from the newer e90 generation m3.
The screaming 8400 rpm v8 is the defining element of the e92 m3 but do you know why bmw chose a v8 over a more traditional straight six.
Comparing an e39 v8 to an e46 i6 the v8 is much lower and shorter.
With the six.
Thanks to a new video from bmw now we do.
The owner of the bmw e30 with a honda k20 weve been following contacted us to share their previous project a bmw e46 m3 built for the track.
Bmws sweet and revvy s54 i6 engine paired with a proper m car chassis made for some delightfully slidey driving dynamics.
The bmw m3 gtr e46 alms2001.
The p60b40 was the powertrain for the bmw e46 m3 gtr from 2001 to 2005.
Unlike the straight six powered m3 versions which were outpaced by the porsche 996 gt3 the racing version of the e46 m3 gtr 16 was very successful in the american le mans series alms entered by schnitzer motorsport.
The design is aging quite nicely and 6 speed coupes in good shape are becoming increasingly hard to come by.
This e46 m3 is a project build by atlanta based technica motorsports.
That said installing one to blend seamlessly with the original m3 electronics would require extreme amounts of general engine wiring mechanical machining and bmw specific knowledge.
Car had gp plates.
It would sit further back in the engine bay and lower as well.
