BMW E28 1983 533i-to-545i Project

This is a non-running project that I just will not find the time to finish.   I put a lot of time and some money into what I wanted to be an E28 545i having the old E23 745 M106 power train controlled by a Megasquirt in order to get boost pressures above the factory limit.   There is NO dirt on the engine or the underside of this car.  What needs to be done is to finish some basic relay box wiring. wiring at the processor. programming of the processor. and some minimal console. dash. and door reassembly after door-poppers are added.  The Euro Grilles and Bumpers. Wheels and Tires. Struts and Springs. Turbo and Manifold. New Upholstery. and OEM Moonroof would fetch me much more than the asking price here if I parted this car out. but I just don't have the time to mess with that.  The car is garaged in Central North Houston. X.  

1983 533i with Clear Blue Title in my name.
