      Thanks! I do what I can, i'm only a 20 year old college student haha.


      Started on the exhaust last night and finished it this afternoon. 1 V band after the first muffler and flanges on the 2 pipes near the Y Pipe.





      Ebay Headers -> OBD1 Y Collector -> 2.5" SS -> Borla XS Muffler -> Vibrant Muffler

      Installed





      I will get pictures from the rear once I get it rolled out of the garage. The exhaust is much quieter than I thought it would be. I'm very surprised, i'll get some videos soon.

      Spent the time after that bleeding the brakes and clutch. Took about 2 hours because one of the bleeder screws was rusted in. Then it took a while to bleed the clutch but it all works now! Hopefully it will be on wheels tomorrow, if I can get the stupid cooling system to bleed itself.

          GF had a bit of a derpy face going in so I blurred it lol. She'd kill me if I didn't.



          Ghetto Fab :)



          I know it needs to be washed and painted but it felt so amazing to drive it. Still waiting on the bolts from the plating place to get here so I can put the wheels together, hopefully the get here on time. :/

            I still need to rotate the left light just a little bit to make it perfectly straight but I couldn't find my stupid stubby phillips screwdriver since my ABS pump is in the way.





            Also wired up the wideband today and put some 93 in her after basically running out of gas haha.



            Things accomplished in the last two days
            -Installed battery
            -Put wheels on it
            -Power steering
            -Reverse Lights (Took almost 3 hours! One of the wires had broken/torn but the casing somehow didn't)
            -Wideband Wired up
            -o2 sensor rewired and installed
            -Bosh Icon Wiper Blades installed
            -Bled the cooling system
            -Drove it twice (:))

            All that's left before inspection is installing the back bumper and the cover for the heater core. I also need to put the hood back on and fix the temperature gauge. My Innovate gauge works fine, but I'd like to have the stock one working too. Do I need to swap out the s50's coolant temp gauge with the m20 one? I might have mixed up the wires on the harness when plugging them in.

              Here's a couple quick pictures. I'll be out of town until friday for work but here is a few more pictures.







              I was scratching my nose, I think haha. I put ~40 miles on her tonight after it passed inspection and no problems!

              Since I will be out of town my dad will put on the skid plate for me.

                Didn't over heat whatsoever. I didn't get the wheels mounted until 7pm friday night, then I lowered the car and finished adjusting it at about 10pm, so I didn't drive on the wheels/suspension setup till the morning of the event haha. I didn't have time to put the skid plate on either but luckily it didn't crack. I made it to Bimmerfest and back without any problems ~400 miles other than the rears rubbing the fender.

                      I've put about 600 miles on it now since the swap and I love it more and more everyday. The 2.93 feels perfect with the zf/s50.

                            Same center muffler I want to go put in. I have just a Vibrant stealth at the rear and it is obnoxiously loud. I have been saying I was going to put another one in for the past ~year....lol. Looks like fun man.

                              I'm glad I did. It's pretty throaty when stepped on but it's not bad with normal daily driving.




                              Everything is still good other than a stupid power steering leak that I need to fix.

                              Finally found a set of red/gold BBS centers for a reasonably price and put them on today. Also since the last set of pictures I've got the trim around the windows back on and real plates.
