        5spd swap sourced, now to start ordering some parts like a SSK, ZHP knob, matt's shift boots, trans mounts, pilot and throw out bearings, selector shaft seal, and a shifter bushing kit. i can't wait to get rid of this automatic. it shifts perfect and all but its just tragic to drive.

                      Great looking highway, too bad it's on the very opposite corner of the state.

                      There's some pretty good stuff going up to various mountains closer to Western WA.

                            Yes. Auto too. Oh boy

                            My friends house Im going to in Naches has about 350 miles of gravel desert roads within a 20 mile radius.

                            Oh yes

                              Diff swap man. 3.46 is one of the best differentials you can get. Quick but still good mileage on the highway. Sounds like fun. Can't wait to get my E30 on gravel (even though it doesn't take much to get it sideways on dry tarmac anyway ;))

                                Hmm yeah these roads apparently are pretty good. My friend (hes often dumb) said his Dad got their PT cruiser to 80 on one of them. And he loves that car (its a turbo edition). Hes a really cool Dad, just bad taste in cars.. lol

                                3.46? Spendy. My car has a 4.1 open, so 3.73 lsd will be going in eventually.

                                First I gotta do:
                                Brakes
                                HeadUnit (maybe sub too)
                                Suspension
