another question about engine options: m10 block s14 head +

or planning on paying for it?

I'm getting parts together for a med/low comp m10 for a turbo project now. Will put it together myself and do a mild port/polish (maybe larger valves)on 121 or 121TI head. Figure I'll have around $700 to $1000 in the long block with a few upgrade parts and scoring a few good deals. I'll do the labor and farm out the machine work. If your paying for it look around $3000-$5000 for the long block and with the S14 head prob add another $1500-2000 or so.

Are you just asking about the motor or the turbo setup also?

The turbo set up is another bag of worms. How much of a turbo system are you talking about? A good turbo by itself can run from $400 to $1200, Inter Cooler: $75-$400, Blow Off Valve: $50-$200, Wastegate $50-$300: Turbo Timer $70-$300: Plumbing oil and IC: $50-$400, Turbo Exhaust Headder/Exhaust work: $200-$1500: Air Intake/filter(s) $50-$300.

+ Lots more to think about or add as $ and common sense allow.

A Turbo'd motor is not cheap to build if you pay someone else to do it. And while it is cheaper for you (read me) to do it yourself, it's still not exactly cheap to do it right.

All these prices are an educated estimate of course. I'm in the infancy stages of my build, and will gladly keep the crew here up on info as I get to the next stage.

Long winded, hope it helps a little (hope I answered your question)

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
