    the one and only e30 s52 engine swap

    Ask @HipMF about how he feels when people write things in dust. Nothing quite like having 3/4 of a gentleman's sausage etched into your paint that doesn't wash off.

    Lifted E30 V2

    Now more confused than before. Collin measured his starter ring gear diameter on an M20 flywheel at a solid 11.5" This means the m21 starter plate is actually smaller? Going to measure the E46 flywheel and see if it's the same. May end up just pulling the starter and making sure it is functioning correctly before taking things too far apart again.

    My New Daily Driver...

    I looked up some specs on Jake's X5 and was impressed to see some of the numbers. It weighs more than a modern mid size truck, it has the same towing capacity as a modern mid sized truck, along with the same payload capacity. I was fairly surprised to see such large numbers from it. I can't imagine towing 6500lbs with a 3 liter would be fun though!

    I also feel like an idiot. Got the motor in the car a week or so ago and finally was getting around to getting things buttoned up. Got it to the point where I was ready to start getting the air out of the fuel system and I bumped the starter to make sure everything was ready to go. Starter just spun. I thought for a second, then remembered that in an attempt to get my tach to work I put the E flywheel back on the motor, which uses a 228mm clutch, whereas the previous setup in there had been a 240mm. I'm assuming the starter ring gear is smaller and I got used to the 24v life where you could just play "swap the starter". The diesel starter is much different than the gas starter, so I'm thinking I need to pull the flywheel and crap off. Not stoked. Ring gear diameter reference for sanity check

    Give me ideas to get the moisture out of my headlight

    Instead of trying to remove the water maybe you could take a more environmentally conscious route. It looks like you have yourself a lovely greenhouse in the works, have you considered adding a bit of nutrient rich soil and some seeds? You could grow yourself some beautiful flowers, or even herbs that you could use for your cooking!

    Suspenceful's 2008 BSM 135i build thread!

    Did you have the AC on during pulls?
  8. This debate again? lol I can vouch for the weight, I picked one up for amusement (Mike's new set) and questioned if it had a wheel in it.
  9. I think @suspenceful may still have a spare or two in the garage, though I believe they have broken spokes lol
  10. Trunk very clearly say 530, but he claims 540 lol

    For sure! I got back from a week in Whistler, BC and 6 work days later I'm heading to Colorado, I hope this meets what you are looking for! I am certainly accepting sponsorship for this lifestyle in case you were looking.

    Yeah, we rode the bike park for 3 days then headed to Squamish for a hike and a day on their trails Unbelievable trails. I'll post up a video when my friend gets them edited and uploaded.

    I haven't touched this since the weekend of the picnic. This past week I was out biking in British Columbia! I may get a bit done this week on it, but then I'm off to Colorado for the week of July 4th.... Someday it will happen!
