NEW PROJECT CAR! Can We Save This Old M3 From the Scrap Yard?

Published on Jul 18, 2018 723,225 views


SEASON 1: Grip vs Drift

Welcome to Knuckle Busters: the show where we take our builds to the next level by involving actual experts. In this episode, we introduce you to our new just-missed-the-junkyard BMW e36 M3 project car, and the engine that’s going to save it. Danger Dan tells us why we chose to go V8 over the stock lump. And Vin takes a trip to Edelbrock USA to start the engine build - and learns all about camshaft science in the process.

    Eric Markstrum 10 месяцев назад How did it take this long for a build show that goes into the details without treating it's audience like idiots?! Thanks Hoonigans for treating us like adults on the internet before scumbagging us at the yard.
  • Patrick Hession
    Patrick Hession 10 месяцев назад Haha yeah, not gonna lie it's a little frustrating to hear shows on TV (or on the internet) say things like: "Alright now, we're gonna make this thing go fAaAast." And then showing stylish jump cuts of various things lol.

  • Slayo710
    Slayo710 10 месяцев назад Better than roadkill, because it's actually on YouTube. And free to watch
  • Giselle Garcia
    Giselle Garcia 10 месяцев назад Roadkill is free to watch lmao the only thing you gain paying for MTOD is being able to see the following months episode faster, along with other shows.
  • Chris P. Bacon
    Chris P. Bacon 10 месяцев назад 3than 07 honestly man, the quality is amazing and it’s super fun to watch
  • you cant leave this empty
    you cant leave this empty 10 месяцев назад Slayo710 Hoonigan vs Roadkill build off a la their MCM build off would be awesome
  • rizZzo88
    rizZzo88 10 месяцев назад im a die hard roadkill fan but tbh it'd be better if they did MCM vs hoonigan. MCM made roadkill look lazy as fuck during that crossover and MCM covers a lot of the same type of automotive stuff that hoonigan does. i dont wanna see another crossover of hoonigan doing something cool and roadkill shoving a v8 in some random POS they had lying around.
  • Scittles McGriddles
    Scittles McGriddles 10 месяцев назад Giselle Garcia actually they re lock the episodes after a month so no they're not free anymore

  • Tyler Evans
    Tyler Evans 10 месяцев назад Giselle Garcia actually it's not.. they've moved entirely to their subscription based channel. Motor trend TV.
  • Telaras
    Telaras 10 месяцев назад (изменено) Tyler Evans actually yes...yes it is. Yoy can download the mtod app and watch the "latest" roadkill episodes with a month of delay compared to the subscribers. Also you can only watch only the latest episode of the current season. Every other episode of that season is locked. Well,better than nothing i guess.

  • Craig Stapleford
    Craig Stapleford 10 месяцев назад Why buy an m3 if you change the motor....just buy an Msport.
  • Craig Stapleford
    Craig Stapleford 10 месяцев назад That sounds snarky.....sorry just interested if the chassis is any different
  • Freddy Louie
    Freddy Louie 4 месяца назад @Craig Stapleford Its a little different, but not dramatically. Trailing arms, control arms and stuff are a bit different, subframe is reinforced on M cars, M cars have a sway bar, its mostly suspension and trim level stuff. The least dramatic non-M to M conversion.

  • Lauri Ilves
    Lauri Ilves 2 месяца назад @SuperKalashnikov47 the engine they had there was a 3.2L S52 (240bhp) Euro S50 evo has 321bhp

  • Per Erik Wennberg
    Per Erik Wennberg 1 месяц назад Yes!.. this is stupid!!
  • mahunik
    mahunik 1 месяц назад @Lauri Ilves In the United States the S50b30 was in the 1995 M3s. then in 1996-1999 they had the S52b32. However in europe they had the S50b32 which was much more powerful than both US motors. So technically the S50 was in the US but not the same exact S50 as the one in europe.

  • Nicolas T

  • Apostol ZD
    Apostol ZD 1 месяц назад I was like: Why would they do that, it makes 286/321 hp, that's not too bad? And then I was like: Oh, they are from USA, they got that shitty anemic 240 hp engine lel
  • Nicolas T
    Nicolas T 1 месяц назад @Apostol ZD I think they can import euro M3 engines though. Since they're so smart to import RB's from all over the world, why wouldn't they do the same with a legit M3 6 lol
  • Apostol ZD
    Apostol ZD 1 месяц назад @Nicolas T M3 engine is not cheap, even in Europe, and it is not easy to find too. So it is understandable why they go the LS route. Cheaper and great engine. I prefer to see an euro engine in an euro car, but everyone has their own reasons and opinion. And that's okay. Just pull that US M3 engine out, nobody likes that xD
  • Nicolas T
    Nicolas T 1 месяц назад @Apostol ZD I understand, even the basic e36 325i that was sold here in Argentina had 190HP, 240 for the american M3 wasn't too far.
    KPLLC KPLLC 1 месяц назад @Nicolas T That's why no one likes the E36 M3 here. It's too close to just a regular e36.
  • Fastlane racing co.
    Fastlane racing co. 1 месяц назад (изменено) Let's face it the only reason they choose the ls1 is because this series was sponsored by edelbrock. I know I would have picked the s50 all day even if it's expensive. S50 with a cross plane cam sounds godly. It makes great power with basic engine mods and with force induction it would make some great power.
  • Dan Kz
    Dan Kz Неделю назад lol yesa, but i guess idk they can turbo it to 1000hp
  • Dan Kz
    Dan Kz Неделю назад @Apostol ZD 280hp and they can put supercharger it make at least 400hp plus chip tuning 420hp at lest form 3 littre
  • Nikoxion
    Nikoxion Неделю назад @Dan Kz What was their target power again?
  • Dan Kz
    Dan Kz Неделю назад @Nikoxion idk, mb just na engine
  • Nikoxion
    Nikoxion Неделю назад @Dan Kz ...same as the LS? Or was the point that the LS can take boost stock better than the MB? Which seems to be true.
