    What's your top speed in 1,2,3rd gears with 3.73 ?

    Semi Sequental injection
    30 AMP Ignition amplifier feeding a stock coil,

              I need a 5 speed transmission for it
              The car is gutted but I still need a set of racing seats
              Im looking for more horsepower but I want to stay N/A

                                Hi fellow E30 lvr :D , well my car had an M10 engine so maby i could help on the wiring (having hooked it up my self) the only thing is that I used an automatic M30 Wiring harness which by the way started at the first try, but I dont really know if the manual and auto have the same colors. oh and one thing is for sure.. THE TEMP SENSOR FOR THE CLUSTER ON THE M30 DOESNT WORK ON THIS CONVERSION. be carefull u need to get the 1pin temp sensor from a 325 E30, i overheated my car, not to red line but did heat up 3|4 and the gauge said Blue cold. so anything ask. Hey, and the G240 from the M10 handles the M30?? cause I had that gearbox and sold it and really had a hard time finding a 260/6 in Honduras! I heard that combination before but how does it handle? Thanks
