        Thanks! It's a possibility, they are just so damn expensive.

            well, rack and pinion is shot and leaked all the power steering fluid so time for a new rack. I finally got a tag for the car and could finally drive it and this happens. Kind of a bummer but oh well.

            Now should I just go ahead and do the e36 rack since I already have to replace it?

                sooooo this just happened...




                picked up an s50 with a lot of things I need for the swap.

                it has:

                s50

                wiring harness

                complete oil pan set up for e30

                motor mount arms

                motor mounts

                throttle cable

                eBay headers

                and the engine had all this done:

                new gaskets (oil pan/oil pump/valve cover/oil filter housing/timing covers), new crank seals, cam & crank position sensor o-rings, new water temp sensor, new timing chain guide rails, new timing chain tensioner, new water pump, new thermostat, new thermostat housing, new head gasket, new ARP head bolts, new main belt, new spark plugs, new knock sensors, etc.

                Pretty excited just ready to get home from school so I can actually do the swap.

                            I came home from college this weekend so I could finally have some time to work on the e30 for a little. What planned to be a whole weekend dedicated to the e30 of course ended up only being one day.

                            I was hanging out with my girlfriend in the garage and she wanted to do something to the e30 so I decided to let her do a little painting.

                            The wiper arms had some rust on them so I taught her how to sand it down and prep for paint and stuff like that. They came out good and much better than before.



                            Then I decided to paint the side trim since I had painted most of the trim already and the chrome was annoying me and throwing things off. So I popped off the trim and painted it.



                            Of course I broke a clip so now it doesn't sit on the body as tight as I would like but oh well it's barely noticeable and I'll grab a clip next time I'm at the Junk yard.

                            oh and sorry for the crappy pics, they are coming out blurry for some reason...

                            anyways onto the good stuff.

                            so this finally found its way into the garage.



                            I was pretty excited so I began tearing everything out that needed to be done to get the m20 out. It took a lot longer than I expected and all I had left was the driveshaft to unbolt then the m20 was completely free. Well of course the driveshaft was being a PITA and I couldn't get it out and I needed to leave to head back to school so unfortunately the m20 still remains in the car :hitler:



                            Anybody have any simple way to just disconnect the driveshaft from the tranny without having to collapse it and take off all those stupid heat shields or whatever they are they cover the whole shaft?

                            So that's all I got done and now I'm sitting in my dorm missing my car. :roll:

                            I ordered all the rest of the parts I needed for the swap:

                            engine harness adapter

                            transmission brace with new mounts.

                            Depending on when I can get the flywheel machined down the planned weekend of the swap is September 13th. But you know how that goes...

                            In the meantime I shall sit in my dorm and look for more parts to buy now that I finally sold my other e30 :D
