    My daily '84 318i m30 swap

    Just joined recently. long time lurker, newb to e30's. i had one almost 10 years ago but i didn't know/care what i had. last car was an R53 (MINI) and just gave away an e34 that i resurrected a few months ago to my nephew.

    I picked up this car in aliso viejo last month.
    >200k miles on it. not sure actual since the speedometer is intermittent.
    Saphire Blue, resprayed recently.
    5speed m10



    after replacing the ICV went down a road of cascading failures but everything seems to be up to par now. a few minor things still need work but nothing i can't handle on my own.

    hope to have a good time here:D

                      m20 vs m10 in terms of power/torque are not comparable.
                      the m10 is still fun to toss around though and the mpg is a lot better for the stop and go i do all day.

                      i gotta get this aux fan wired correctly, getting a little hot at long lights. just did thermo, waterpump, coolant temp sensor, flush last week. everything seems good, just a ghetto wired fan :(

                              You should not need an aux fan at all. If it's heating up something is wrong. I'd vote mechanical fan clutch is failing.
