The Clarion Builds BMW 2002 project has come a long way in 5 short months, in this video we show the upgrades made to the car’s engine, suspension and brakes – not only did we want the car to accelerate faster, we wanted it to handle better and stop quicker too!

What we added to the car:

-ENGINE: Fully rebuilt the engine with all new internals - increasing compression from 8:1 to 10:1, replaced the intake manifold with a custom unit from Ireland Engineering, installed dual two-barrel side draft weber carbs, a combo that effectively added nearly 60 hp to the rear wheels

-BRAKES: Wilwood 4 piston calipers and two piece cross-drilled and slotted rotors from Ireland Engineering

-SUSPENSION: Upgraded sway bars, Eibach springs, KONI strut inserts up front, and shocks in the back – making ride height adjustable while maintaining the car’s road manners.
