    looks like they have a oil pressure problem like everyone else except us

    first batch of f20c jumpers are done and the prototype K is off to Rywire so we can start production on those

      They fixed the oil pressure issue by increasing capacity. The s13/s14 pre order from them is live. It does seem to be a feat to maintain proper oil pressure when you push the engine as close as you can to the firewall. Sliding the engine forward would be the easiest answer to this.

          They were also testing it on the track in a car with a grip car. So their conditions are more than just a simple testing.

          are you guys coming out with a pan at all or can post photos of what you found works?

                    Sweet. I want to see it in an early 318 with manual everything. Would be a fun car.

                      Anyone know if you’re able to fit a K24 and still retain both power steering and A/C. I’m still not entirely sure if I want to go K24 or F20/22C. Either way I plan on using the S2000 6 speed.

                          Might as well just get an s2000 while you're at it... What's the point of putting an s2000 engine/driveline in an e30? Seems like an s2000 does literally everything an e30 can, except better.

                            I agree. An M42, M44, or S14 fits so nicely in an E30, so it doesn't make much sense to me to put a Honda engine in one. A stock M42 or M44 is plenty powerful for everyday driving, but can be built-up or boosted if necessary.

                              shoo shoo, purists K and F series blow M4X out of the water in all respects and a stock F2XC blows an S14 out of the water for a fraction of the price.

                                I still have dreams about the engine/transmission that I had in my '01 s2000. Nothing beats an engine that screams to an 8800 rpm redline coupled to one of the smoothest transmissions I've ever experienced and is dead reliable. I beat on that car, bouncing it off the redline for 100k miles all the time and sold it with a still healthy engine at 150k miles. It would be a blast to have that platform in an e30 and have back seats.
