Power comes from a naturally aspirated 2.3-liter inline four-cylinder S14 engine sourced from a 1989 BMW M3 The rear wheels are driven by way of a 5-speed manual gearbox believed to have also been sourced from the same M3 donor car. An upgraded Stromung exhaust has been installed and the brakes and suspension are said to have been replaced during the drivetrain swap about 3k miles ago along with the installation of a rebuilt steering rack sourced from a BMW Z3 1.9. A 5-lug conversion has been completed using a Z3M rear suspension and E36 MW front struts. Other significant mechanical work carried out at this time is documented in corresponding service records.
