    The Beat3r's Life Story

    So it started life as a simple 4 door auto Edirty. From what the PO told me it sat in a field for a while and he and the infamous julian from ashville 5sp swapped it.
    This is where i come in. Picked up for nearly nothing my journey began....
    This is a autox pic i took shortly after getting the car:

    From there many autoX's and DDing followed. Racked up a ton of miles, a friend wrecked the pass side fender/doors, beat the piss outta the M20 and factory 4.10 LS and all was well:









    Some Fun:

    Then after a while my business started requiring the use of a truck. I declined this and the e30 volunteered for the job!
    Towing, Hauling, and still DDing. All with the Original M20,G260, and 4.10. mileage nearing 315 and suspension all original began to show:



















    Then the m20 decided it didnt much like me anymore... Bad things started happening:



    Then really bad things:

    So it was time for the M20 to go. I decided to completely budget build a 24v swap. I do it right for all my customers but wanted to see if i could do it wrong/cheap for mine:

    M20 Out with carnage. Clutch was brand new ~1 year ago.





    So because i had one laying around i chose an M52. I fixed up a chopped to shit parts OBD2 harness and grabbed a random S52 ECU. I kept the 260. Moved the stock booster wayyyyy over, M20 throttle cable, radiator, etc. Repinned the harness like i do for my customer cars tho ;)
    And the result!:









    And the first start/run vid:

                    Your car reminds me so much of my car. From the missing glove box, to the different colored fenders, hood and the towhook, it closely resembles my car aha.
