    Also, if you can avoid it and know and understand wiring, or know someone who does, don't go with an adapter. Wire the harness directly in, makes for a much cleaner install.
    Thanks for the advice. I believe the ix booster might have more boost than the porsche 944 booster. Unfortunately I don't know anyone who does wiring so I already ordered the akg adapter yesterday. Now I just need all the other parts.... Thanks I appreciate it though. How did you swap turn out and what are some performance parts you felt the most. Also, what kind of cars can I expect my s50e30 to hang with? Thanks again

    hahah yea i think its stupid to buy a weaker booster with a more powerful motor. if anything i want better breaks. after i do the swap im going to get slottle and drill rotors with new pads, hopefully that helps. if not i want to look into swapping my e36 m3 brakes onto my e30. have you heard of this being done before? thanks!!!

    No worries. That's what the community is here for. I purchased 2 boosters when I went 24v. My pedal feels like a limp noodle but, I'm hoping that's just my master.

    The stock booster in it's factory location will contact the intake manifold. As in not fit. But, you can notch the firewall 1/2" or so and move it to the right (looking at the engine from the front of the car) and you're golden.

    I know right? That was my other question. With just about all the boosters they say you can use with the swap, you have to make the shaft the same exact size at the stock booster. Why can't you just use the stock booster?

    From my understanding and I could be wrong, you should be fine running whatever master pairs to the iX booster. Girling or ATE. Honestly if I could do it again myself, I'd have run the stock booster with the slotted firewall.

    Yea that's what the guy was saying, okay another question for you, if I get an ix booster can I use my stock master cylinder and if not then which one do I use?
    Thanks alot btw

    yea i realized i have been asking a million question before the swap even started, so i figured stating then asking when i run ointo problems will be best.
    one problem i have already is i was told i need to buy a 413 red lable dme or else it wont start. is this true or can i use my original 413 grey lable dme?
