      Never knew the radiator flowed top to bottom. Interesting.
      Wheels are hot too. Best combo of them

        Dang that's some quick work really changing the overall feel of the car.

          thanks, guys. it's certainly cleaning up a lot better than i expected, which is cool.

          i ordered a full Supersprint exhaust on Monday. hoping to see it soon. really excited to get it on the car.

          installed a super, super nice HVAC panel last night. opted to reinstall the 13 button computer and a radio delete panel. i have no plans to put a stereo in this car. S14 is all i need.

            One of my fav cars in one of my fav colors. Love that it'll be enjoyed as a driver's car with some nice upgrades, subscribed!

              scored a Sport Evo trunk spoiler (with the short OE gurney and the tall CF gurney) on Thursday and a pair of ACS mirrors. trying to decide whether to get the EVO2 "Jay Leno" chin spoiler or run the EVO3 undertray with splitter. thinking E2 wins...

              oh, and i decided to get these refinished. one of my favorite wheels of all time for an e30m3...

                  thanks, man!

                  bit the bullet and scored an almost NOS E2 chin spoiler today. ended up getting a nicer bumper cover than the one on my car. i've fully drank the Kool-Aid LOL

                    Wow, Austin! Major. Congrats. Dude.

                    I spent a lot of time around this car with its two owners back 10+ years ago. Strong S14 with this one! She rips! Her name was Beatrix back then, not sure if that name has been passed along but now you know.

                      thanks, Nick! it's fun getting even more history on the old girl. i've been daily driving it for the last week and a half and i fuckin love it. it sure is quick for a mostly stock 2.3. the CR box makes all the difference in the world. feels quicker than my s50 car, which certainly isn't slow...

                      trying to resist the urge to have the entire car repainted. i'm sure it'll happen some day. for now, i want to have the Sport Evolution parts installed and enjoy the shit out of it for a while.

                      hope all is well with you!

                          And unfortunately I don't think this button exists when editing, only for new posts.

                          Car looks and sounds great!
