    M20 Engine Oil (summer only)

    I have an M20 with ~150,000 miles on it. Wondering what viscosity you guys use and why. In researching this online it seems everyone uses something different and ECS sells a bunch of options even when narrowing the search down to this car. Thanks in advance for the assistance.

    @straight6pwr Is there a ZHP shift knob w/o the silver ring at the bottom?

    Finally got rid of the white w/M stitching shifter and parking brake boots. Picked up a CATuned set and it fit great. If anyone wants the old set I'm happy to give them away. Now its time to upgrade the shifter knob. What's your favorite for the E30?

    Minor update: Replaced the ECU with a 173 unit so that I can chip/tune and upgrade the injectors. Odometer stopped working so replaced the OEM gears w/Garagistic gears. Pretty easy fix that doesnt require removing the steering wheel but blew out a bulb in the process.

    Headed over to Accumoto for a suspension consultation. Ended up raising the car 1 inch all around for a more comfortable daily ride and less twitchy backroads experience. Car is feeling much better and just needs to go back for an alignment next week.

    Minor update: Went to install a shark injector tune to find out that it already has a tune on it. Not sure what it is but certainly explains the excessively sensitive throttle response

    Wired up the amp to the new hot-swappable subwoofer. Not bad for $100 and I use it with the Land Cruiser. Still, need to figure out a way to tie it down

    Finally got around to getting the car paint corrected and detailed.

    E30 Picnic 2018

    Thanks for the tag. Gonna miss this year due to another trip. We should do something in June in Madison.
  11. FJ60 = love The 100 series is an epic winter beater. I love not having to care about the weather.

  13. App: BRZO - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/brzo-for-craigslist-enthusiast-car-search/id972731356?mt=8 What: Nationwide / Worldwide Craigslist search tool Why: I cant buy them all so I thought I'd share my favorite car search tool. My experience: I have used BRZO for a couple of years now and used it to find my last 3 cars (E39 M5, Land Cruiser & E30). It allows me to quickly and easily get a sense for real-world market prices, general availability, and quality of cars in the market so I can spot a good deal on the right car when it pops up. So far I've saved ~$10k by finding good deals. In full transparency, Phil the app creator has become a good friend since I started using the app and he has a great Instagram feed. Cons: not free Screenshots:
