    BMW i Convertible - Eurotuner Magazine

    In this business you become a little gun-shy, a little skeptical of big numbers. World's fastest this, world's most powerful that, world's longest Anyway, when evosport presented its hp E36 Convertible at Bimmerfest '05 we welcomed it warmly but suspiciously.

    Since then we've been trying to track down the car and discover whether there's any truth behind the claim, and it took us 14 months to get the owner and builder together in one place. To verify its credentials we strapped Sam into the seat newbies are always the guinea pig and he went for a ride.

    You can read about his experience over the page, but it convinced us there was a story to be told. So we thought we'd concentrate on the engine build since it's the major aspect of this sleeper convertible. Despite its appearance, the car started life as a '94 i.

    During the 12 years it's been owned by 51 year-old Ivan Colon, it's taken on an M3 persona - first the 3. The motor was also turbocharged but Ivan was never satisfied with how the car ran, so through happy circumstance, found himself on evo's doorstep talking to Gary. Now Ivan's pretty laid-back and you have to encourage him to open up, whereas Gary could turn telling the time into a 90min diatribe.

    Yet somehow these two managed to ascertain exactly what Ivan wanted. This is how Gary approaches every job. He wears you down with unbridled enthusiasm, then goes off and builds you something special. In this instance, Ivan wanted something that could pace a Turbo, yet would be reliable for everyday use - a pretty tall order from a '94 i, it would seem.

    We decided that about 12psi would be a dependable boost pressure, so were able to choose a suitable turbocharger, which in this case would be a GT40R since it would give us enough airflow to achieve the desired manifold pressure. We'll look at how the turbo was selected in a moment, but let's examine how the motor was prepared for its new duties. The first task would inevitably be forged aluminum pistons from CP Pistons. These would lower the compression to a safer 9: The pistons have gas ports around the sides to improve ring seal against the cylinder wall and give more consistent behavior on boost.

    The piston clearances were then set after careful long term testing that's shown Gary the tightest fit possible without the risk of the pistons binding when hot. These tests have also shown him the optimum bearing clearances and piston deck height for best performance. We'd love to share this information with you but it's one of Gary's guarded secrets and something he attributes to the quality of his engine builds.

    Using tool-steel wrist pins, the pistons are attached to strong Pauter rods. The crank is stock but the rod journals were re-ground so custom bearings could be utilized. The crank was also micro-polished and the oil supply improved for durability. The block itself was machined to accept 12mm head stud inserts.

    This is after evosport discovered the stock 10mm studs could allow the head to lift slightly and cause gaskets to blow under pressure.
