$2300 E36 325is + $5300 in mods = giant-slaying track day performer
In stock form, the car starts out having its ass handed to it by superior Exiges and 911 Turbos (as one might expect), but later ends up reeling in those very same cars with ease. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have a GRAND-AM professional race car driver behind the wheel, but the gains are still nothing short of impressive! With the right foundation and mods, it doesn’t take a huge investment to build a respectable track car.
We took a $2300 1992 BMW 325is and added a series of performance parts to try and reduce the lap times. With better brakes, suspension, intake, exhaust, engine chip, 17″ wheels and racing slicks, we were able to improve the car by 25sec per lap.
All the parts were supplied and fitted by Turner Motorsport. Professional driver Michael Marsal was at the wheel, and we used Monticello Motor Club as our race track.
