BMW 518i turbo

Hi all ,
For what i've been reading here it is a fantastic site with much information!
I have a E28 518i which I will turbo in the near future.
I have collected allready: Garrett airesearch T03; 185cc injectors; E46intercooler. In the first stage I want to run low boost (0,6bar max.) because this is my daily driver. Do I have to lower the standard compression? What setups do you guys use on your M10's?
For the second stage I have 345cc injectors and perhaps MegaSquirt or VEMS with bigger turbo.
Thanks for replys
Tim

Thumbs up

Yellow Tim

No comments about technical questions youp asked but I just wondered where are you from?

And why are you boosting such a small engine?

Btw. welcome on board!

Timmo6: Maybe you should post this question to the discussion list labeled "Tekniikka". I don't think many people will read it from here..

Hi guys,
I'm from belgium by the way. The reason why I will boost a small engine is I have a 628csi in my garage with the M106 engine from the 745i for the fun . My daily driver is a 518i but TURBO is like more fun. Taxes and insurance are expensive for big engines here in belgium.
I will post some pictures in the near future. Chassis is OK and very small rust on the sideskirt. With such a small engine the E28 is a terrific car wich handles very good for his age. The E28 with the big 6cyl is much heavier on the front which gives him problems of understeer. My brother is driving an E28 with M106 engine on track.
I tried to read some posts about the M10 turbo but can't read it. Finnish is too difficult for me
How do you guys make an adaptor for the exhaust manifold?Pics? Or where do you buy them? I informed at Proturbo but they didn't reply my mail?
Tim

We have guys reading this forum who can make it themself. You need to ask them in OSTETAAN forum. It will be cheaper that buying from proturbo.

I hve also had 518 i

Unfortunately neither I can say anything about your technical question. I have also had 518 i but it has no turbo. It is true that its engine is rather small and it has no power, but anyway I liked the car a lot. It would be nice to see pictures of your daily driver.
