S65 e30

S65 e30 DEFAULT

The E30 M3 has undoubtedly by now reached classic status, so this one probably isn’t for the purists out there.

But then again, as with plenty of projects to emerge from the Driftworks stables, you should know by now that they aren’t ones to conform to the norm. Not only does Driftworks’ head honcho Phil Morrison have an envious collection of cars, but so many of them have, and do, upset those who prefer things a little bit more OEM.

Take for example his RWD-converted slammed Lamborghini LP640, or his Chevy Impala lowrider that’s on air rather than hydraulics. His BMW M2 daily and Nissan S15 practice car are less likely to offend, but of-course, the LS-X powered DW86 competition drift car is definitely ‘out there’. Recently while he was over in Japan collecting his RWB 964 Turbo, back home in sunny Birmingham, England, his latest track-focused build was approaching the final straight.

The DW30 broke cover this past weekend at Coventry Motofest (gallery coming later this week), so I wanted to take the chance to show you around the car briefly. It wasn’t quite in a finished state, with some plumbing and wiring still needed, but no doubt we’ll be aiming to bring you a full feature once this thing hits the track.

Seeking out a replacement track car for his Riviera Blue 997 GT3, Phil purchased the E30 from a customer of DynoTorque, fabrication specialists situated right next door to Driftworks HQ in Birmingham. At this point, the car already had a BMW S65 4.0-litre V8 transplanted under the bonnet, as well as the cage work completed, but for all intents and purposes was still in the early stages of the project.

Phil briefly played with the idea of finding an original BMW S14 engine, but decided to stick with the more modern alternative. Although, the DynoTorque/Driftworks team pretty much ripped the engine out and started again, repositioning it further back in the engine bay for better weight distribution.

Having owned a couple of E90/E92 chassis M3s, Phil knew he wanted to keep the engine choice, but was wavering at first on which gearbox to use. Straight off the back of the potentially controversial opinion piece that I published at the weekend, the timing couldn’t be more poignant, to be honest. In the end, Phil opted for the E90/E92’s DCT transmission for the E30. Although the gearbox weighs more than the manual version, based on his experiences with driving this setup on track previously, how well it works with this engine, and just how blisteringly quick you can be with it, it was the inevitable choice.

Phil says that he wants the car to be a reliable, enjoyable and comfortable experience on track and this powerplant and transmission combo does exactly that. The idea is to be able to complete lap after lap after lap without worry. Essentially, what you’re looking at is a track-spec powerplant and transmission in a chassis that weighs some 600kg less than the car it came from. The age-old recipe of installing newer tech in a classic chassis never fails to rile up the purists, and I suspect this gearbox choice is going to be another layer on top of that. Alongside this, the E30 also benefits from the E90’s MK60 ABS system which, along with the engine and gearbox, will all be controlled by Syvecs management once it’s all plumbed in.

There’s plenty of other very trick bits scattered around the build too – the front and rear fenders are completely custom, having been remade in carbon fibre to accommodate the slightly repositioned track width and wheelbase, whilst still looking somewhat OEM M3. Of course, all the suspension, turrets and underpinnings are custom too, and the car sits on a set of HSD coilovers over Work MCO wheels with Alcon six-piston and four-piston brakes, respectively. With over 400hp, and weighing just over 1,000kg with all the modern technology inside, this thing is going to be a weapon.

I’m not dismissively skimming the details here, but instead I want to leave plenty to cover when the car is finished and we run a full feature on it. In the meantime, catch up with Driftworks’ build videos to get up to speed.

Having known Phil for a number of years, and knowing how particular he is is about his cars, as well as how much attention to detail both DynoTorque and Driftworks put into each build, this is one machine that I’m very excited to see hit the track.

e30 m3 with s65 m3 engine

I started this car a few years ago after I sold my e46 m3 touring as I missed my orange ls powered car, the story is this car raced in 1992 and was damaged that is where it sat till 5 years ago in a field I bought the shell and set about repairing it and fitting more of a cage so this is how it looked




so this is how it looks tonight just waiting for rear hubs then the front suspension can go on then it is off to have the s65 m3 engine with 6 speed manual fitted at dynotorque hope it looks and goes as well as the old one

Bookmarked!

This is going to be marvelous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any details on the gearbox/diff/subframe combination you will be using?

I will be using a v8 m3 manual gearbox as you can probably tell it is a z3m rear beam and arms and the diff is a 3.64 being built into a big caseing

Good luck with this. I remember both your M3 touring project and the E30 M3 V8?

The s65 engine should be great in a lighter shell such as this.

im hopeing this will be under a ton as the old car was 1125 kg with full tank of fuel, this shell is much lighter the cage is t45 and most panels are carbon fibre or fibreglass the shell has been dipped and lightened to the max only strength is the cage

So is it going to get the full TicTac livery?

Please keep this thread updated.

Love your work, I remember the Rover/TVR powered E30M3 also.

I have a soft spot for the E30 M3 having had a Cecotto, is it 14 years ago now....
Pleased to see the change from green to orange (Inca?), my fave colour is orange.

What are your plans for the s65 engine - Are you going to keep stock or upgrade?




Just pulled these pics from my 'Donington 2007 trackday' pics folder, knew i'd seen that car before!! cheers

E30 s65

I’ve owned my E30M3 project for three years at the time of writing this. It’s all to often been pushed to the side as my competition car needs work, but this year I’m absolutely adamant it’s getting done!

I bought the car as a very unfinished project. It came with a large transmission tunnel and S65 V8 and manual gearbox, and a lot of green….

The story is best explained through our YouTube series.

Part 1
Phil has a new project car! (Well, 2 years on a shelf)… A genuine E30 M3 track build – and it has an S65 V8 out of an E90 M3. It’s going to be a lot of work on this over the next few months, so remember to like a subscribe for more updates. Any questions? Any hate? Fire it in the comments.

Part 2
The Driftworks E30M3 is back from the bodyshop and it looks awesome! The original plan was to paint it black. We kind of went in a ‘slightly’ different direction! Riviera Blue!

Part 3
The big rebuild on the Driftworks E30 M3 starts now! back from the bodyshop Phil has stripped down the panels and now Dyno Torque has the pleasure of putting it all back together.

Part 4
The next task on our E30M3 Track project is to make some base settings on the HSD Coilover suspension. Ensuring the wheels have enough clearance in the arch when the car is under full compression and making sure the damper has enough travel.

Part 5
In this one we continue with the fuel system, cut some more holes in the car, and chop up the bootlid. Sounds enthralling right?

Part 6
Part 6 of the E30 build series, in this part we talk to Craig about fabrication and some of the parts he has made for the E30. We also discuss the Anti Roll Bar and how we overcome some the issues we had.

Part 7
In this one we delve into the crashed E92M3 for parts and we fit the Mega Diff into the casing.

Part 8
It’s DONE! (Not quite), but it looks done! We talk you through some of the final days of work before the car was shown on the Alcon stand at Coventry MotoFest! Apologies; We know this one’s a bit “talky” We’ll do our best to get some action to you asap!

Part 9
Phil’s E30 is back round at Dyno Torque for another strip down in preparation for the parts of the wiring loom.

Part 10
Phils big day is here… After nearly 3 years the V8 E30M3 is finally started for the first time.

Part 11
This time the exhaust has been finished. Craig has wrapped the exhaust with new heat shielding and created the DTM styled exhaust tip that Phil wanted. Then we fire it up again and it sounds awesome!

E30 V8 S65 3gear testin diff

The BMW E30 M3 is one of the most beloved cars ever to come out of Munich and it has the price figures to prove it. Try buying one these days and you might realize that even though it’s 30 years old, you still can’t afford it. There are plenty of reasons why the E30 M3 is considered one of the greats but its compact, lightweight construction of the car being one of the bigger ones. Since the engine didn’t break any world record for power output, a light construction was needed in the first place.

But what happens when you add a different engine in that bay? The video below shows a heavily modified BMW E30 M3 with an engine swap but this isn’t your run of the mill engine swap. Instead of the 2.3 liter four-cylinder from the standard M3, this is a heavily tuned car with an S65 engine under the hood, including the gearbox.

E30 BMW M3 test drive 84 830x553

The S65 is a 4.0 liter naturally-aspirated V8 with 414 horsepower and is the only V8 ever fitted to an M3, a powerplant derived from the iconic S85 5.0 liter V10. With a redline over 8,000 RPM, this 4.0 liter mill screams up until you hit the limiter with a specific sound you can’t miss. It’s a heavy engine though and the dual-clutch gearbox it comes with on this particular build doesn’t help, either. This means the natural balance of the E30 M3 has been ruined with this sengine swap but aren’t you glad it exists?

The video shows just how difficult but also how fun it is to control such a setup, even in the wet. Nevertheless, towards the end, we get to see this E30 M3 playing with a 911 GT3 RS, the weapon of choice for many enthusiasts when it comes to hardcore track days.
