e28 ls1

This is my personal project to build a DD with a bit more UMPH.  I bought an 85 528e with a bad engine but a lot of upgrades.  I then bought a wrecked 99 camaro with a 55k miles LS1/T56 (6 speed).  I parted out the camaro and kept the engine, trans, wiring, etc to use in my swap.  In addition to the engine swap I replaced all the suspension components, wheel bearings, brakes, etc etc.   So under an almost 30 year old car lives a brand new car.

I will eventually update the info here with the entire build but here are a few pictures.
