Don’t mind the haters Bjørn Werner was aware that he might get in a little hot-spot by doing the conversion he has done with his car, but is very clear on the fact that it is his car- therefore he does what he wants. However the reception of the build has been mostly overwhelmingly positive. And why shouldn’t it?
That’s profoundly deep, dude…. «The Office» is kept tidy- The dashboard is clothed – or flocked, the steeringwheel is from the Sport Evolution, and the gloves are – well, awesome. Whats even more awesome, is the gearshifter which Bjørn Werner customized. It’s got both the M3 emblem, and the shiftpattern from the Nissan Skyline. Just to confuse people, really.
All wrong! It’s not just the wrong letters underneath a BMW-hood, but Bjørn Werner found out that the RB-engine he chose specifically, was shit at what he wanted it to do. The RB26 got some lubrication-issues when driven hard on track, so it has undergone some serious upgrading
Tight fit? Well, not really. The original engine sits really far up front, so when the RB-engine was mounted as far back as possible- as well as a bit lower, the space was actually great, and the weight-distribution was too.
Push it. Push it real good. Well. It’s a flap. It’s a flap from the Sport Evolution. And its job is real simple. Make sure there is downforce when needed the most, so that all talent isn’t stripped from the driver in the first high-speed corner.
Stop. In the name of… Porsche actually. Bjørn Werner has worked a bit to get the brakes from a 996 to fit the E30. It bites on some rotors from Performance Friction. At the rear its got Zimmerman rotors and E36 M3 calipers. Might we add that this car is streetlegal in strict Norway, with every component found on it.
