        Really glad you are finding the time to work on this project. It will feel great to actually get this back on the road to be dialed in! Life happens and projects are really never "completed" are they. Looking forward to future updates and an action shot or two. ;D

            I'm in lynnwood. I was wondering if there were ppl with swapped cars near by to see how their cars runs. My fuel pump or fuel pump relay seems to be acting up. Sometimes it works great. And sometimes it like goes on and off. Or it will just constantly run. This is all before I actually start the car. When it sits for a while it does this and it takes a while to get it fired up.

              E36 Maf sensor on e30 air box.
              Im halfway through doing this myself, what did you use to adapt the MAF to the airbox? Thats the last piece Im hung up on.

              also, what did you use to glue the box back together on the bottom?

                I used a soldering iron. And it's all basically plastic welding. The maf is installed into original tube that was cut off of e36 intake box and welded on to e30 box. I also used epoxy putty from pep boys to glue it on the inside

                  Can someone tell me if their swapped car does fuel prime for 3 seconds when key is in on position?

                    Installed new turn signal and wiper switch yesterday along with new ignition switch that came from euro e30 and had to be modded. Also changed spark plugs and coil boots.








                    Turn signal comes with an extra light that goes into the cluster







                    Had to take those pins from my old ignition switch and solder into the new one. And also swapped the door buzzer switch from the back of the switch.











                    Old boots






                    New stuff came in


                    Waiting on more parts. Next will replace fpr and rebuild the injectors. Hopefully that helps my rough start problems

                          I will be starting my journal soon. It will share many similarities to this one. Total repaint in a unique color is the big one along with an engine swap. My color is a little lighter than yours and a little more blue. Great color by the way and look forward to seeing this to completion.

                              That's nice , good luck to you with your project. It's definitely a money pit ! I started with 5k budget for mods and now over 20k.

                                You are definitely correct, it is not cheap. I am doing a full Mtech 1 conversion as well. Excited to get started. The M62 swap is complete and the engine bay is painted - that's it.
