  1. Man, they keep coming out with some great shirts. Right now they're doing a run of 3 E30 shirts! 2 days left
  2. List updated: The DISA valve on my engine is not an OEM part and is shot, so I'm looking for an OEM one to rebuild.
  3. I'm definitely interested to see how they compare! That and I'd love to make a 1/4 mile pass or two, just for fun! Progress has been slower than I want at the moment, but once I'm past the new year I can start really getting into it
  4. Was out of town for two weeks and then didn't have any time to work on the car, but I finally got to my garage this past weekend and started tearing down the engine and got it on a stand: Got a bunch of unnecessary stuff stripped off like the AC and SAP, and pulled off all the accessories to start cleaning things up and get access to the oil filter housing. The donor car was hit in the driver's front corner and it caused the power steering reservoir to crack and dump all it's fluid onto the alternator, hopefully it didn't damage anything and I can just flush it out with some brake cleaner. I also did a test fit on the shorty headers, might have a problem as the rear manifold contacts the block slightly. There must be a slift angle difference between m52 and m54 exhaust manifold mounting surface, so I'll have to do some massaging. It might be easier to just get some M54 specific long-tubes.
  5. Wow, didn't realize people were asking (and apparently getting) that much for late model verts, no wonder mine sold in less than 3 days...
  6. Updated first post, found a gas pedal for cheap. Thanks! I haven't shopped around on these yet since I don't need it right away, but that doesn't seem unreasonable for an OE one
  7. A month of driving and they'll be black anyway, job done!
  8. That's an awesome color! I don't think I've ever seen it before, was that a factory color choice or is it an individual?
  9. I'll be going to as many as I can!
  10. I just saw this, I have the Stoptech Sport on my e30 (slightly more aggressive but more dust, they didn't have any of the street pads available for my brakes) and they're fantastic. The braking is WAY better than my E36 with Bosch quietcast pads. In case you haven't ordered them yet, Rockauto has them for half the price of Turner!! http://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/bmw,1991,318is,1.8l+l4,1011373,brake+&+wheel+hub,brake+pad,1684
  11. This thing is pretty awesome! http://www.roadkill.com/a-1967-bmw-2000-tilux-gets-an-upgrade-sorta/
  12. I bought this one about a year ago, its pretty inexpensive and has been great so far. I can get it under the jack pad of my E36 on h&r sport springs no problem http://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS-Performance-Products/555/80006/10002/-1?CAWELAID=1710606898&CAGPSPN=pla&CAAGID=39714413703&CATCI=pla-171302083751&CATARGETID=230006180039220999&cadevice=c&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIhMXjxcPh1wIVx7XACh2IdQVHEAQYBCABEgLYhfD_BwE They also have rebuild kits available if it ever starts leaking http://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS-Performance-Products/555/80006/10002/-1?CAWELAID=1710606898&CAGPSPN=pla&CAAGID=39714413703&CATCI=pla-171302083751&CATARGETID=230006180039220999&cadevice=c&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIhMXjxcPh1wIVx7XACh2IdQVHEAQYBCABEgLYhfD_BwE And, if you find you frequently need to jack up the car on grass/etc (auto-x pits or something) they make a skid plate! http://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS-Performance-Products/555/80027/10002/-1
  13. This is going to be awesome
