    I'm convinced that you don't know how to do a burnout

      You're the king of slamming an engine in and making an event! You did that for Gfest 13 with the B35.

      E34T is the sex, e34 550T is better than any sleeper I have seen! Love it

            Hey Slammin, Can you talk a little more about the wiring?
            Sure. I didn't use an adapter for the x20. Two reasons. 1) I like the wiring to be clean and to the point. 2) It already ended up where I need it, I just needed to change the connector. SO, I cut the connector off and pinned the new connector to match the e34 stuff. As for the electronic throttles (EML), they're exclusively handled thru the X21 connector....and cruise is handled thru the EML. It's was virtually plug-n'-play. There's even a spot on the e34 pedal box to install the accelerator position sensor (remember, some M30 e34s had EML). The EML light is needed for it to work properly, otherwise it will go into a limp mode....BUT WAIT! ALL THE WIRING IS THERE! All I had to do was populate a connector under the dash with two wires from the X21. The light and wiring into the cluster is all there. The weird things were the oil level and pressure sensors. They go into the body harness. Fun fact: The oil pressure light runs on the same circuit as the E-box fan. SO, if the ebox gets too hot and the fan comes on...the oil pressure light will come on the dash. I spliced the oil pressure sensor into the harness. Works like a charm. I actually didn't bother with the oil level sensor since I was in a hurry, but imagine it's the same general concept.

            Hehe, I slammed the B35 in there for Vintage that year....then wrecked the car the beginning of June. Slammed it together to get to GFest which was on June 21st that year.

            It's not a good habit.....lol.

                God man, I'm working a deal on a 1991 750i right now, It's a rust bucket, and has not run since 2001, but at the price I'm trying to get it for, It will be worth it....

                Now just to find a E34, and finish the E30 M60 swap....

                    I made it squeak the tires last night.

                    I don't think this thing will do a burnout. It just likes to mooooove.

                      Roll the back back wheels into one the puddles of coolant your rovers have left and dump the clutch at 4k rpm

                              So haven't touched The Hammer in a couple weeks because got a real parts hauler:



                              1995, 5sp, v6, 255k miles.

                              It's AMAZING. I had one back in 2007-8 that was exactly this but 4wd. Loved it. Then I had the z31s....so I'm kinda partial to the vg30e. This thing SCOOTS!

                              First things first, I removed the dumb camper top. Then I wound down the torsion bars and dropped the rear with 2" blocks.




                              It's always working.

                              Picked up a 4.6 for the Disco....



                              ....and a bike for a friend of mine....



                              If you don't have a small Japanese "chicken tax" truck....GET ONE. They are the best thing ever.

                                Parts hauler is awesome, I love older trucks

                                v12 e34 is insane, good luck with it!

                                ps if I was to daily drive a v12 7 series it would cost me about 5k a year just in taxes in Belgium..
