    Wanda's Turbocharged set-up (E36 1.8 M43)

    After the success of my turbo install, I recieved a few PM's of how it was all done, so I thought it would be a good idea to post the details from my project thread.

    I hope this set-up encourages more 4-pot owners to have forced induction on their cars!



    Okay, it was a very sunny day today . So why don't I make an early start on the turbo project..
    //





    So, the first job was to bleed the cooling system, before i can replace the radiator with a bigger 6-pot version
    //







    After bleeding, the radiator was removed then.
    On the photo below, it's obvious to see why i needed a bigger one.
    Also incase you're wondering, all 6-pot radiators will fit all 4-pots without any modification.
    //





    6 Pot radiator is now fitted. I'll be running full concetration of Comma G48 coolant
    //







    Up next was the turbo intercooler waiting to be fitted on the car
    //







    These brackets will be used to mount the intercooler on the central section of the car.
    By central section, I mean under the kidney grills, between the brake ducts.
    //





    Because my bumper does't have a open-slatts/grills. So the blanking plate had to be removed. (Temporarily)
    //





    Well, this is how it's going to look, until i get a mesh/slatts for a standard bumper
    //





    The IC's mounting points were drilled, to fit the brakets on them...
    //





    Up next, was the the front-section pipes, to mount on the IC itself.
    The blue silicon hoses were tightened using large jubilee clips, ofcourse
    //





    Pipes & Brackets all fitted. The IC is ready to mount on the car now..
    //





    The IC is now fitted to the car....
    //





    Side view...
    //





    In the engine bay, you can see how the pipes end up.
    //
    There is still plenty of room for the next set of pipes
    //







    Standard bumper now fitted back on
    //


    Update: 19-02-2013




    Since the turbo needs oil to function, so in this case. I'll start by fitting the bango adaptor
    The turbo will be fed oil from the Oil-Filter-Housing.
    The picture below shows that the OEM oil-sender & the turbo will be sharing the same port.
    The black banjo is for the Oil Pressure Sender and top "hollow" bolt is for the Turbo Feed Line
    //





    Firstly, the lower-intake manifold has to be removed to access the oil-pressure sender.
    //





    As you can see, it's all the way down there.....What an awkward spot!!!!
    //





    Ohhhhhh trust me, ....it was a right BiTCH to remove! Thank God for Mole Grips!!!!!
    //







    There's the oil pressure sender removed... ready to be fitted on the banjo/hollow adaptor
    //







    //
    FYI:
    - - The Oil-Filter-Housing for pressure-sender has a hole that is: M12 (12mm)... with 1/8NPT thread.
    - - All E36's have the same pressure senders. So the holes are the same.
    //




    There it is, now fitted to the black banjo
    //





    The Banjo/Hollow adaptor (with oil pressure sender) has been fitted back to the Filter Housing...
    //





    So up next was the Braided Oil Feed Line for the turbo...
    //





    And it's fitted now (with a "hollow" bolt that feeds the oil to the braided line)
    //









    The line will pass the front of the engine.... (instead of back of engine, due to length)
    //





    As it continues further down, towards the bottom where it will connect with the turbo..
    //





    That's the modified Oil Turbo Feed Line/ReLocated Pressure Sender done...
    The lower-intake manifold is back on...
    //





    //
    Up next, was the installation of the "Auxilary Fuel Pressure Regulator" ...
    //
    FYI: It's always a good idea to write down where pipes must go, and also diagrams of where parts must be.
    This is because the engine bay can be a very confusing place to be....
    //





    First of all, the 'Injector Air Feed' pipe had to be removed first...
    As marked in the white arrow below
    //





    As marked by the arrow, the fuel "return" line is now exposed... This is where the AFPR will be installed...
    //





    The top jubilee clip had to be unscrewed...
    //





    Jubilee clip is now off,
    You can see the rubber hose is disconnected from the metal RETURN line... Ready for the AFPR
    //





    If you're interested, here's how the AFPR would work. So i've noted each port on the image below
    - Vacuum Line: This connects to the throttle body vacuum line
    - Fuel Rail Return: Fuel coming FROM the Fuel-Rail must flow through here first...
    - Return Line to tank: Regulated fuel coming OUT of the AFPR itself must go back to the fuel tank...
    //







    The 1st port has been connected (Return Regulated Fuel to Fuel TANK)
    //





    Obviously the Fuel Rail has a metal line, and the AFPR has a metal line too.
    So a "short hose" was needed to join these two up.
    //







    The 2nd port from the AFPR has been connected (Fuel RAIL to the AFPR)
    //





    That's the modified fuel line work done... :
    //





    Up next, was the 3rd line from AFPR which will connect to the throttle body vacuum line...
    //





    Here's the vacuum hose that will be used. (LOL, excuse my dirrrrrty hands! )
    //





    Rubber hose is now fitted the last port of the AFPR
    //





    Here's the hose now. (I'm leaving this disconnected UNTIL the top-manifold is back on)
    //





    The main engine loom had to be installed back, as I was done with the AFPR fitting.
    //





    Not forgetting to secure it back to the lower-manifold...
    //





    Also, not forgetting to connect back the "Injector Air Feed" hose...
    //


    //
    Next day, the first thing was to put back the top manifold, so i can do some vacuum line mods as shown below
    //

    //
    //





    Under the manifold, you'll see a brass nipple.
    That's originally for the OEM vacuum pipe to go there.
    But that's all going to change a bit.
    //





    This extra vacuum pipe will be used in this process.
    //





    That's the extra vacuum pipe installed under the top intake manifold.
    //





    So now there's 3 vacuum pipes that need to be connected, all from different locations. As noted on the pic below.
    //





    In this case, why not join 'em up with a vacuum t-piece
    //





    All connected now...
    //





    A little while later, some small parts arrived, so I went indoors. As shown are:
    - Manifold gasket
    - Manifold duralock bolts
    - Wastegate hose + clamps
    - 12mm Banjo Bolt & 6mm Barbed hollow ring
    - Copper washer rings
    //





    The short hose has connected the internal wastegate actuator to the turbo compressor housing...
    //





    Up next, was the turbo oil feed adaptor to the turbo compressor housing
    //





    And now installed... waiting to link up with the braided hose..
    //





    The turbo manifold was ready to be installed now...
    //





    These M12 duralock nuts will be used to secure it..
    //





    Ofcourse, it can't hurt to use Loctite to seal the nuts on the threads.
    We wouldn't want the nuts to undo themselves during big vibrations ...(aka. annoying speed humps)
    //





    Manifold installed & ready to link up with the car's exhaust system
    //







    So it's Day #4 [since i started] & the project continues as usual...
    //
    //
    Returning back to the engine bay, the coil pack needed to be removed & relocated temporarily...
    //









    Now I have access to the exhaust manifold from up here...
    //





    Now it was obvious the X-Brace had to come out also...
    //





    And, out it comes...
    //





    The exhaust manifold & front-section piping can be accessed from underside...
    //
    There also seems to be some room for the turbo, so that's good news! (I just hope it fits in there, as it's HUGEEEEEE)
    //







    The exhaust Lambda Probe is going to be removed & relocated on a different pipe...
    //





    It's out now, well for 150K miles, it's pretty much showing it's age!
    //

    //
    //
    //
    OK, That's it for the outdoors, I can't let myself turn in to an ice cube!! LOL
    //
    //
    //
    Okay, so while inside, I took out the custom front-section pipe for the turbo...
    As you can see, the pipe is just another pipe bent a few times with some welds on it...
    Any local car exhaust welding garage can do this...
    //





    Up close, is just a regular 23mm bung bolt welded on, this is for the Lambda Sensor...
    //





    Another close up, is the flat flange welded on to the pipe.
    //
    - FYI:
    You can just go to a scrap yard, get any exhaust & take it's flange off.
    Give it to your welder & he'll weld it on, to your own custom pipe. (Sometimes even cut the flange in to shape where necessary)
    //





    Anyways, the Lambda sensor was fitted on to the new front section pipe..
    //





    Next up, was to cover the pipe with heat wrap...
    //





    All done up now... Nothing better than keeping the heat inside the pipes..
    //





    With the OEM air-filter-box taken out, I knew there is now way i'll be able to use it again...
    An induction kit arrived today,
    So the idea is to remove the "air flow meter" & link it up with the induction kit....
    //
    Now the giant box won't be required afterwards...
    //





    The top cover only has 4 bolts to secure it.
    FYI: if you're installing the AFM to the induction kit, always use NEW gaskets from BMW. (You don't want any air leaks, trust me!)
    //





    All installed now. It looks pretty nice anyway!
    //




    Next, the OEM front-section pipe had to come off the manifold!...
    //









    Next up, was to remove the front-section piping bracket...
    //

    //





    Mid-section-to-catback clamps needed to come off too..
    //





    The OEM front-section pipe is OFF!!!!
    //





    The whole exhaust system is now on the floor... ...I'll deal with that in a bit...
    //

    Ohh yes, the turbo is going to be fitted.... I know you've all been waiting for this!!! (& me too !!!!)
    //





    A New manifold gasket had to be fitted first...
    //





    Turbo being lifted up to the manifold..... (God, this thing is so heavy, it felt like lifting up a Cow !!!)
    //





    Almost there!!!... one more lift-up!!!!!
    //





    IT FITS!!!....IT FITS!!!!......IT FITS!!!!!!!! ....Damn, I actually thought it wouldn't fit!!!
    //
    Anyway, there it is , being tightened up ...... in a rather tight space, while i'm holding the heavy thing!!!!!!
    //





    ////
    This time, I was very lucky because, I escaped 2 potential problems that would have ended the project!
    As shown in the picture below:
    - The WasteGate rod is a few milimetres from touching the gearbox end-lip....That would have been deadly if it did touch!
    - The steering column was also a few milimetres from touching the turbo head flange...I'm lucky my steering control won't be affected now!
    ///
    Advice: Get the smallest turbo you can find. Mine is small bit it's capable of more than 30psi boost. (I can extend it to more, if i wanted to)
    ////

    //
    //
    //
    Here's a much closer shot...
    //



    Here's the whole turbocharger from the underside....
    //







    Another picture....
    //





    Another shot again... this time from under the front-wheel arch...
    //





    And here, directly above the Compressor (...Notice how it's so close to the engine/steering rack mount!! )
    //





    Okay, now the next task, was to line-up the custom front-section pipe (Turbine Exhaust outlet)
    //





    The custom exhaust outlet pipe is now installed & held by 3 bolts (3rd bolt, not visible)
    //







    Ofcourse, who wouldn't forget to connect the 'Lambda Probe' back on...
    //







    There it is, all connected & clamped back on, safely from the custom pipe... (...it's heatwrapped anyway)
    //







    You can't even see it from up here! (Okay, Okay, maybe just the 'manifold-to-inlet' flange...)
    //





    Shit!!! How the hell am I going get pipes through there ??? ...Urgh! I wish everything was Left-hand drive!
    //
    ....Ohh dear..., I guess i'll figure it out.... I always do!
    //



    //
    Well then, it's day #7 since the turbo project began, and it is progressing as usual...[/B]
    //




    Since the turbo is fitted, it's now time to work on the oil plumbing...
    As pictured below are:
    - custom welded drain flange
    - M6 fasteners
    - Hose clamps
    - Drain Silicone hose
    - custom cut Gasket for drain flange
    //





    As pictured, the turbocharger will drain the oil towards the flat surface of the oil pan...
    //
    It's in a leftwards + downwards angle as the oil must drain by gravity...
    //







    Since that flat surface is dirty. The quickest way to clean up, was using a drill & wire brush...
    //





    Ahh, much better now!!
    //





    Before doing any work on that surface... The oil must be drained by 2 litres... (Temporarily)
    //







    Now, it was time to mark some holes. 5 Holes had to be marked.
    As per pictures:
    - The drain-flange is held against the oil-pan
    - The permanent marker makes an outline of the flange
    - Now the gasket, is used to mark 5 holes
    - The 5 holes are now marked for drilling...
    //





    Now at this point i'll let the pictures do the talking for you...
    //





    //
    //
    Now that the holes have been drilled & threaded..., time to move on to next task....
    //
    //


    As shown: M6 Double Thread-Studs & white thread tape
    //





    As per pictures:
    - M6 threads were taped for the oi-pan (...I wouldn't want to see an oil leak)
    - M6 thread have been slotted in...
    - Gasket & Drain Flange being fitted in...
    - The Drain Flange finally gets locked in with 10mm nuts
    //







    Because i'm done with the drilling... The oil was fully drained out of the car
    //
    This part is important as it will also flush out the metal bits that fell in when drilling holes...
    //







    As marked by the arrows, the last part of the oil-drain set-up was to clamp the hose tight, on both ends...
    //







    One more oil plumbing task left!
    - The braided hose from the Oil Filter Housing finally gets connected the Turbo Oil Inlet
    //







    Next, the braided oil-feed line, was clamped to: manifold bracket, cam-sensor housing: using cable straps
    //
    - This was important, as I didn't want that line to catch the viscous fan... I'm glad I prevented that.
    //





    This pipe will join the Compressor-Outlet & the Intercooler-Inlet
    //





    That's the IC inlet pipe waiting to be linked up...
    //





    Intercooler Inlet & Compreassor Outlet pipes connected now...
    //





    Again, there's the pipe. It's just milimetres from touching the control arm..
    //
    Good job the arm doesn't move sideways!
    //





    The compressor outlet & the pipe connected by a silicone flexi hose... (Very flexible hose that is!)
    //





    Speaking of flexibility... As pictured below are:
    - 45/90 deg. flexi rubber hose ..... This is the Bypass Hose for the Compressor Inlet
    - Aluminium air intake tube...
    //





    As shown below: This is why I needed that flexi-hose (Bypass Hose) to bypass this akward spot!
    //





    Aluminium air tube is now connected to the Compressor-Inlet, thanks to the Bypass Hose!
    //





    Here's a full view, directly above the strut tower
    //





    Next up, only the best spark plugs for Forced Induction! (...I also have OE Bosch Super 4 as spares for me)
    //





    Old cheap plugs removed!
    //







    NGK plugs fitted in, ...and the Coil pack pack connected back.
    //









    Since the turbo already has its custom downpipe fitted on, the OEM exhaust had it's original down pipe cut-off...
    //





    The exhaust is now on the floor ready to fitted on to the car...
    //
    It won't be fitted until I get new brackets for it ...as the old ones are corroded badly
    //







    With all the extra air going in, the DISA actuators had to be modified...
    As per pictures:
    - Unscrew DISA off the manifold
    - Remove the: actuator and also the butterfly flap
    - Put the modified unit back on the manifold..
    //
    However, the electrical plug remained connected. (If it was disconnected, the ECU would be in safe mode, which is a bad idea)
    //





    The AFM has been connected with an OEM long-intake hose (from any BMW engine before 1990)(eg. M40, etc...)
    //





    Next the compressor inlet pipe had to be taken off ...temporarily
    //







    Compressor Inlet pipe , OEM intake hose , AFM all joined up now.
    //







    Now fitted back on to the car... That's the intake side completed!
    //







    To prevent any damage to the Viscous Fan, the original radiator coupling has been fitted back...
    //





    That's much better now! (...and oh yes, the bonnet can still close properly!
    //







    Can you figure out the missing link ? This is the FINAL piece before i can really start the car up...
    //







    As per drawings below, the FINAL piece consist of:
    - Blow Off Valve (Idle Bypass)
    - Vacuum Hoses
    - Flexi Couplers
    - Metal Pipes
    - Snouts for: Injector air feed and also BOV
    //

    //


    After Royal Mail took 4 days to deliver my parts (Urghh!!!) ....They finally arrived to me
    //
    //
    First up was the 45-degree air pipe , which goes between the silicone Flexi-couplers.
    //





    As per picture, the hoses which are individually labelled.
    //





    Also as per picture, the last parts were the twin flexi couplers for Idle Bypass & Injector Air feed.
    //







    Speaking of Idle Bypass (BOV). This one is rather simple & made by BOSCH.
    So you can consider that as 'OEM' for factory turbocharged cars such as Saab, etc...
    Some Cars with Diesel engine would have it too (since they use Turbos)
    //
    The BOV is actually a little bit quiet...
    ...So don't expect that loud "Vroooom---Tishhhhh" sound you hear from Turbo'd Hondas lol.
    //







    Fitted nice & tightly on the silicone flexi-coupler...
    //





    As per pictures:
    - The silicone couplers were fitted to the Intercooler 'Outlet' pipe.
    - Another Air pipe FROM the Throttle body joins up with the same silicone couplers.
    - Idle Bypass (BOV) has been fitted too.
    - The vacuum pipes were "T-Fitted" to join up these 4 parts ----> [BOV] [OEM FPR] [AFPR] [Intake Manifold]
    //
    //





    Well, that's the WHOLE set-up complete!!!
    //







    Last but not least, NEW OIL! .....(It's always recommended!)
    //





    Now, the "first start-up" video! ...
    ================================================== ====================
    (Please excuse the quality, as it was taken from a smartphone lol)
    //

    //
    \\
    //
    \\
    //
    How about a video of the 2nd start-up ??? ......Here we go!
    ================================================== ====================
    //

    //
    \\
    //
    \\
    //


    ================================================== =========================
    ================================================== =========================
    God, this thing is loud!
    oooooooofff!, i love how it GROWLS when it starts-up! oooffff!!!




    I let the engine run for an hour or so, it revs & idles nicely (as evident on the videos above^)




    ================================================== =========================
    ================================================== =========================
    That's the Turbo project completed... over the next few days, i'll be giving a full test drive on the motorways!




    So, on that bombshell, ...................the M43 is ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





    Thanks for looking, i hope this project inspired some of you!, comments are always appreciated!

    Since the turbo project is complete, during the next few days these check-ups will be done...
    - Check c0 levels at the exhaust
    - Check for any oil leaks
    - Ensure there no air leaks either
    .....and probably some regular engine maintenance work to follow also.






    Current/Future plans for forced induction are:
    - Install some gauges ---> [Wideband Lambda] [Boost] [Oil Pressure] [Oil Temp] [Intercooler Air Temp]
    - Valve Cover: Install Oil Catch Can for excess oil during high pressure
    - Cold Intake: AFM & Air Filter will be relocated closer to the front to get cold air using an OEM snorkel
    - BOV/Idle Bypass: I'll probably buy a different BOV that sounds nicer , as the BOSCH one is too quiet lol.
    - Braided Hoses: Replace all vacuum/oil/air hoses with braided ones to bling up the engine bay
    - Clean the dirty engine bay!
    - Larger Injectors (bigger injectors would mean i don't need 2 Fuel Pressure Regulators)
    - Chipped ECU/Remap
    - New Engine Mounts
    - M3 Front Brakes (only after i get 17" alloys first)
    ....and probably a few more performance mods, depending what i've done so far..


    - Start planning on the twin-charger set-up (I've already got a Mercedes supercharger waiting to go on)
    - Strip the engine down and replace gaskets to prevent future oil leaks..
    - Collect individual parts for the supercharger
    - Plan an M42 HEAD conversion since the internals are stronger than M43
    - Then ofcourse, the twin charger project begins!
    =========
    (You probably won't see the twin-blower set-up until late summer 2013
    ....and yes! i'm taking my sweet time, as i don't want to mess up! ....like everyone says, "preparation is key!")








    That's probably all, but a project is "never finished" , there will always be more to do
    Thanks for reading!

    Thanks Meka!
    After all that write-up, it's fair to say ,my fingers are enjoying the much needed vacation from the keyboard!
    Ohh yeah that growl is addictive now! I just wished my neighbours would feel the same way!
    No worries fella, i'll take some videos when i get the chance! I'll probably buy a better video cam, if my wallet allows me to!

    So bet they are a tad sore Well worth it though for anyone else looking to try this out but i have an idea some people will be hoping to shove wads of your way to build it for them

    I'd copied and pasted all this to a seperate file and then you get organised? Damn you @wanda lol ;D
    Which turbo you use in the end? Thinking T3 would be sufficient and intrigued about intercooler sizing
