1974 BMW 2002 M42
Well this was one of our first swaps (as you can see from the location of jake's home garage). This 2002 was delivered to us with an M10 and a 4 speed and left with a E30 M42 (NA) with matching 5 speed. You might think why are we showing a build from soooooo long ago? Well we are firm believers in being 100% accountable, displaying the progress of our work. You can always learn more, build better and improve. Just as anything in life.... You will not find an overload of text/explanation to these early builds as we did not take the same amount of pictures. So I hope the pictures help tell the story.
