    and some DD shaft is the best option for the steering shaft to give you the most clearance.

    Thanks a lot my friend those pics gave me confidence, once i got off work I did the passenger side manifold in an hour cutting and tacking, It fits perfect.
    Once I getting my steering shaft I will attempt the driver side.
    Cheers.

    Did read your build a while back cause I noticed you are from NZ and figured your car was RHD also, only thing I could not see your pics, works now Perfect.
    I was busy trying to figure out manifold modifications today,what a pain this was. Accomplished nothing....... Day went to waist spent most of the time looking at the engine resting in its new home.
    Do you have any pics of steering clearance,anything more on those manifolds to help me with my build. Even a few tips for me please.

    And is that the original e30 brake booster you using?
    What remote reservoir lines are you using?

    Thanks.
    Thanks man! yeah the two tone has definitely grown on me....

    Yeah manifolds are a big headache. I used the factory manifolds and cut and joined them higher up on the passenger side and had to make a whole new manifold for the drivers side, clearance on the steering shaft is very tight, changed shaft to a DD shaft and some flaming river universal joints for it to clear but still very tight.

    The booster was a kit i bought from ergen motorsport, you can use the factory booster with their bracket but i chose to use their mini booster and matching master cylinder, the glovebox becomes unusable once you start chopping it up, the reservoir i order some elbows and res from a 2002 and got a good length of factory BMW clutch res line to redo them.

    I also had to shave the alternator casing a little to clearance the frame rail a little bit.

    I found some pics of the manifolds, i hope these help.

    If there's anything else i can help with PM me and ill do my best to help you out

    This thing is great, congrats on the great results!
    Does the dashboard need to come out to fit the brake booster kit?

    So its finally finished!!! Such a awesome car to drive. That sound and the ability to just cruise but when you give it some stick WOW does it boogey, after almost 3 years its been worth the build and time. I couldnt be happier!!!

    Looking sharp man. Don't worry too much about being low. Scraping you nose sucks way worse.

    Its been a little while but have finally got a bit to update.

    While waiting for the last few parts to be built i have been working on the interior, got hold of a iS rear seat covering and re-trimmed it/adapted it to how i wanted my interior to look, have also order some more of the same material to match the front seats and sub box, bootlid cover.





    Finalised the exhaust after the first attemp was way too loud for our legal requirements here in new zealand so have had to add to 14inch resonators the the exhaust to quieten it down, unfortunately that means there is not a lot of clearance under the car so woll have to raise it up some now and fit more suitable tyres. grrrrrr.

    Have had custom washer and power steering tanks built and installed in the vehicle, also had a custom expansion tank built which sits i n the battery tray, unfortunately still needs some work to fit correctly, so i am still to test the coolant system.

    But, the car finally left the garage under its own power!!!!! soo stoked that it all works, clutch works, brake system works, it does a skid, very happy just a few little things to button up and it should be good to drive on the road soon :D







    Unfortunately it wont stay at this height and will have to look into a more suitable/bigger tyre size to give me more ground clearance, FML!!!
