Charbel's Blazing Brilliant E30 M3

As this project gets more media and we get more time to update, new photos and videos will be added. 10/29/09.

Our new friends at Dent Sport Garage, known for there high end Japanese car builds are doing an excellent job with Charbell's beautiful Brilliant Rot E30 M3 sitting on Fikse FM10s.

Using an extensive line of our VAC parts, components, and (barely street) Race engine, together we have the pleasure of delivering an ultra-high performance E30 street machine to two of our favorite customers; brothers Ziad & Charbel.


This is some E30 M3! ... to our knowledge; no one has a street driven E30 M3 like this in North America...
They started with a VAC Race Engine with 2.5L sport Evo block, VAC MoTec Standalone ECU Kit & dyno tuning, VAC Stroker kit with 13:1 compression CP pistons Arrow Rods & 2.5 liter bored block, VAC MLS Gasket, ARP Hardware throughout, VAC Bearings, VAC Stage 3 head with VAC valve springs & Ti Retainers, Ported and polished runners & throttle bodies, VAC DTM Carbon Airbox Kit , VAC Megasump Oil Pan, VAC twin-disk clutch, huge Schrick Race cams, VAC shim-under buckets, OSG rear differential, ATL fuel cell with external Bosch pump, Tomei FPR, ///M GmbH Sport-Evo headers and much more.
Drooling yet!?

Everything is mocked up and tuned into what is essentially a race car before they go for the respray...





After a bit of driving with a race engine, the brothers decided that something a bit more mild, with street fuel friendly compression and cams would ultimately allow for a more enjoyable street car... A Race S14 just doesn't want to be driven for groceries ; )

So It comes back down to VAC from Massachusetts for more mild cams and pistons + a street tune...

We selected our CP 11:1 pistons, and a (very aggressive for street use) 308/292 camshaft combination.
Still a killer with, as they say in Boston "wicked ahhhsome" power! 


One year later and they are loving this beast of a machine! 
We thank them as they are taking turns serving our country in Iraq. Thank you boys!

Update 02/2010: at requests to look at this beauty, we hope to have more pictures of the finished product for you uploaded soon.
