  • My IT build

    Well the build begins on my E36 325is ITR car....

    As some of you know, I picked the car up from San Francisco and drove it back. After getting the car back, it wasnt but a week and stuff started coming out. My plans are to build the car to the Improved Touring rules for ITR. My plans are to have the car ready for Santa Run 09 at little talladega.

    I'll start out with what the car looked like when the previous owner had it both new and when I picked it up.

    DAY 1- Oct. 13, 2008

    So last night Brad (Chummy on IA) and I started taking out the interior. We are taking out the heater core, A/C controls, Radio, speakers, and pretty much anything else that doesn't have to be there.

    Sorry for the bad pictures.

      DAY 2- Oct. 14, 2008

      Well I got up early this morning and went to take some better pictures of the car. I had to move it over last night for some reason? I'll post more tomorrow after we get more done.

      This is what it looks like from last night....

        DAY 3 Oct. 16, 2008

        So last night Brad and I worked on getting the wires ready to pull out. we went ahead and pulled the fuses out and pulled the wires from the fuse box. We also finished cutting the block off plate out and will be putting it on Friday night.

        Nothing really looks different.

          Day 4- Oct. 21, 2008

          Things are finally starting to come together. Last night, Brad and I put the block off plate from the heater core on. We also pulled the A/C compressor out.

            Wait... no heat and you're going to drive the car in the middle of the winter?? :lol:

            Looking like progress! But why take the heatercore out when it can be used to help cool the car if need be?

              I have a hard time getting the car up to temp as it is. And I will have 2 fans on the car with a BIG radiator so im not worried.

                Car looks great....


                Better put that heater core back in Matt, you dont have to run coolant through it (aka you can plug it) but per the rules it has to remain on the car with hoses attached

                http://www.scca.com/documents/Club%20Rules/ImprovedTouring.pdf

                GCR section 9.13

                g. Engine coolant fluid, coolant/heater hoses and clamps may be substituted. Heater hoses may be plugged. Heater water control valve(s) may be added or substituted. Heater core and hoses shall not be removed

                  Looks like a great time, you'll need to just show up to a bmwcca autocross and absolutely blast everyone out of the water.

                            As long as you've been with the SCCA, I imagined you'd have learned how to read a rule book by now...
