So here I am getting all excited because spring will be here soon and my MC is making good progress and it won't be long now.

I'm all smug because I know the LS3 is going to pull up stumps, then I get a text from Craig at Dyno Torque who's building the car.

"LS is so last decade"........and these pics:





The bastard is rubbing it in because he's just scored the latest generation factory supercharged LT4 crate engine for his own personal build. It's going in an E92 M3.

I chuntered something about forced induction being the work of Satan but I have to admit to getting just a little bit of a boner at the thought of six hundred and plenty horsepower and a loud whine to accompany it

Nice! And I can see why they’re called crate engines now....

So Craig's LT4 powered M3 is running.......His own car jumped the queue as I'm in no particular hurry and we're waiting for some bits.

I think so. I could never get my head around why they were never done like this, I think it looks unfinished as OEM.

I get why you'd never do this to an original car but as mine is bastardised anyway then I had no hesitation.

It now lives, albeit on a base map while I run it in.

Quick MOT and we're away...........
