    Story behind the car: started life as an auto that lost its life to a timing belt that was 2 weeks away from the crusher, I bought it as a $800 shell an a m52b28 w/s52 cams and a zf320 found its way between its fenders. 1.5 year and constant annoyance with bad tuning forced me on the quest to find more reliable power. 7 weeks later the v8 was driving and on the way to the dyno. I would Like to thank all the guys over at brads custom auto in Seattle for all the help over the years will all my crazy projects

      he needs an i lip, i can understand if having an is lip is too low. but having the clips out there looks half assed in a car that so much effort has been spent on.

      it looks amazing though, really nice powerplant.

        What did you use for a driveshaft, Greg? I've got one from an auto e32 but its a single piece. Thinking about having a shop splice the front flange of it onto my existing one, but if you did something easier I'm all ears.
