  1. Also check the lobes for wear. They can be purchased new
  2. I definitely know what its like to have this little guy on red when its 90 out 😄
  3. I know I say this a lot, but we have a really great group and I always look forward to the picnic. I have made a lot of really great friends through this hobby. I was most inspired by the blue e92 335i automatic, open diff, with brakes, suspension (stock sways), and “FBO” mods which according to the owner, has 7000 track miles and ran a personal best 2:37 at RA.
  4. Auto to Manual coding in NCSExpert: All credit to 50sKid on youtube for the information. He had some trial and error in his video but I consolidated the correct required steps for future reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FiBr1h9j0bU NCS Expert 1) File>Load Profile>Expert mode (or Factory Coding, depends on which version of NCSExpert you have) 2) Go to “F1 VIN/ZCS FA”>”F3 ZCS/FA f.ECU” (reads vehicle order from module) 3) Select E46 Chassis 4) Select AKMB 5) Select “F2 Enter FA”, ignore incorrect VIN, click OK
  5. Very disappointed in your intestinal fortitude
  6. We dont need to be that early, I have VTEC. See you at Qdoba at 9:00a
  7. Breakfast burritos are still only served at the Tosa Qdoba. Well worth the detour if you are in need of sustinance.
  8. You are doing it right
  9. Absolutely do it! They are cool people and it will give you insight as to why they can charge what they charge. FWIW, the rarer stuff is in an offsite storage warehouse.
  10. Which trans oil did you use? I tried Redline MTL, Redline D4 ATF, Pentosin MTF-2 (supposedly OE spec fluid), and Bimmerworld’s recommendation Redline MT-LV. MT-LV was the best experience followed by Pentosin MTF-2 as a close 2nd. Life gets better after removing the CDV Sell me your F30
  11. Curiously, thats just how trucks are from the factory. Helps show what’s original and what’s not????

    All kidding aside, I have a long list of cars that I want, but what you want and what you need are two different things. There are a few non-car-related goals i’m aiming for that influenced my decision to sell and once the dust settles i’ll see where i’m at and what makes sense at that point.

    Forgot to update this thread. Decided to store some drugs purchased from a very seedy location in new berlin under the valve cover since the crankcase vapors are supposed to throw off drug-sniffing Kaisers. I think one of the meth crystals bent a valve stem because cylinder 6 now has low compression. I didnt want to mess with it and figured id screw someone over while I could. LOL new owner
  14. Disagree. I recently installed Morimoto 6000K headlight bulbs. It’s more of a street racing/roll racing car than something you would want to push too hard on a racetrack
  15. Hint: You will find the next 3 baggies when you pull the valve cover 👍🏼👍🏼
  16. Nice sleeper https://milwaukee.craigslist.org/ctd/d/salt-lake-city-2007-peterbilt-379-exhd/7324765848.html
  17. What consoles/systems do you have? Which racing games do you play? Who would be interested in having regular group races if we could find a common denominator? I believe a few of you already do. What would be the best game for online racing amongst friends? Currently: -PS4 -GT Sport, Project Cars, Assetto Corsa -Interested in upgrading console/system if enough people have something else
  18. If there was just 1 day to go up, what would be a good one?
  19. Spicy ketchup 👍🏼
  20. N55 is the best exhaust sound on a BMW 6. Fight me.
  21. Bump because this is a couple weeks away!
  22. Here is the plus-side though: More practice pulling the manifold while the engine is in the car will increase your confidence in doing any future maintenance items that require it (Hopefully there are none). In my E30 ownership experience I had been into almost everything on that car to the point where swapping a diff or pulling the driveshaft was child’s play. Hope pulling the manifold becomes almost second nature like that for you. There is a very real mental-aspect about wrenching. When you don’t have the pressure to cobble together a repair to be able to drive to work on Monday, th
