RB26 E30 BMW

Thanks to Jeroen from Speedhunters for kindly throwing this build my way. Once again, everyone’s favourite car (or should I say, the Internet’s favourite car), the E30 BMW, get’s some major lovin’. This one’s getting it’s new heartbeat from Nissan’s finest, an RB26DETT (with both T’s removed and replaced with one big T). Purists look away.

  4. The guys at DBM Engineering in the Netherlands have done the same (and a whole lot more) with this E36 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5qmSmFMgrU
