    there's no fuel pressure sensor so the ecu wouldn't have that data so I don't think it's capable of proactively shutting down fuel based on that. To my understanding it only controls duty cycle and fuel timing based on all its usual sensors with a highlight for the O2

      Do you still have that ES/IS front airdam you removed from the car? I am looking to buy one.

        ^^ Thanks Jeff, that's a good clue.

            Had our favorite muffler shop get up into the rear subframe and cut the leading corners off the IE pick-up tabs so they don't rattle against the floor! Finally! Installed rear shock reinforcement plates. Rebuilding the Vickers power steering pump, flushing system. Rebuilt drivers door lock so the power locks work and you keep your original key. Skid plate going on. May replace the fuel level sender, but that's an expensive piece. We may put the stock front strut drop hats back in instead of the E90's and gain a half inch in the front. On real roads, it's hitting the ground a lot. We're rolling the front fender lips to get a bit more clearance when turning.

              Bottoming out the shockor the car onto the ground?

              On the bilstein sports you can cut the bump stop, but Im on the fence that still is a bandaid, and Im not sure if a shorter strut is an option with the factory spring perch. Id go that route if possible.

              Old soft damper will let that car bouce down making it bottom out also not controlling the spring.

              I know the IE serrated adjuster have clearance issues on cars that have the raised subframe bushings. I had to hammer the chassis and notch the corner of the tap. Found this while bolting it up, but with rubber bushings and tight tolerance that maybe tough with the constant give in the rubber.

              Enjoying the build / adventure!

                Thanks! It has generic NAPA shocks on it now. Not entirely sure if it's the shock bottoming. He's hitting the wheel arch in the front, and sometimes the floor and tank on dirt roads (EEK). The front is pretty low with H&R sports and E90 drop hats (for a street car). The ET12 wheels have the sidewalls out close to the fender arch. Just received an Eastwood fender roller to try that.

                It was my mistake to not check the floor clearance on those IE rear mounts while we lifted it up into place. Once it was back together I didn't have the heart to pull the subframe a third time! We asked a muffler shop that does many kinds of work. Two guys managed to get up in there with a sawzall and cut the front points off. $50. We like that shop. We should spray some undercoating or rust converter where it was hitting the floor?

                  Yah, got to slow down on rough surfaces, no rallying :p ...

                  I was a kid once...

                  Did you do a slight roll of the fender?


                  Rust converter / Rust etcher/ Rust encapsulater would work well.
