When I buy a part for a few hundred I worry about paying the bills, you're hardcore, nice buy.

Dude was smoking in the car while making the video, you should make him take a $100 off the price! Looks very unassuming, someone pulls up next to you with their stereo loud they would have no idea what its got.

I think that car has so much potential w/o removing stuff and making it race-car-like/light, that there's no reason to keep your turbo car. The v8 will give you all the power you need to keep the DD comforts. Have you seen the LS conversion for E36 (M3)?

Well I am going to keep the turbo car as the daily driver, and set this one up as a dedicated track car. I want to do things, like put a full cage in it, big splitter, rear wing, etc. that will make it a not very good DD. Plus no a/c in South Texas really sucks.

I have a buddy with an older M3 that knows ALL about that LS conversion. He WANTS one.

Congrats on an awesome deal and your wife taking it well! Although she'll probably find a way to use it against you down the road. lol

Good job. Hope the car is flawless for you and well sorted. Buying another persons project is certainly the budget way to go.

With suspension, brakes, aero, interior you do realize you will dump another 5K into it right?!? I'm sure the wife will understand....

This deal reminds me of all the LS RX7 swaps up for sale - but at half the price! and I thought a $20k LS swapped FD was a great deal...

Wow Tex! I'm smiling the whole way through this thread.

You've got to feel good about that one!

I don't blame you one bit. I'm thinking about doing one myself...buying all the parts one at a time. Rear end for b-day...swap kit for Christmas etc...

That price for a finished one = fun now - year of downtime - head ache + $10K in pocket.

Can't beat it with a big stick or 99% of what's on the road.
