2005 BMW E46 LS3

Build014 2005 BMW E46 M3 LS3 114

This car was FAST!! This was delivered to us with a lot of go fast parts already installed. Nice suspension, wheels, etc. The owner came to us looking for more POWER.

Out came the S54 and in went a zero mile 525hp cammed LS3 and built T56 magnum transmission.

For this build we sourced Vorshlag engine mounts and headers to cut down on fabrication time.

LS3 time!

This was a fairly effortless swap as we didn’t have to reinvent the wheel. We purchased engine mounts and headers

When this car was delivered and rolled off the trailer, I was EXCITED! We have been accustomed to doing M42
