    Pretty sure the PN is engraved in my boss's brain at this point! Congrats on getting the engine in, looking good!

    Be sure to PM me when in advance when you plan on coming up North for your Valence/Spoiler! Otherwise, It's safe here at the Honeycomb Hideout!
    Lol, me too, since I never knew what it was for the longest time.

    Hopefully not, now that you've said that! Wanna get the red car baselined and then take it on a day trip up there. I'll let you know.

          Installed new front/rear crank seals and carrier gaskets and installed a new pan gasket.

          Can't wait to get the rest of the machine shop work done on Friday.

          Should be running before the end of the month!!

                I hate my car. I want a 1600 or 2002 again.

                If only I didn't just have luke install an amazing stereo....

                  Did you have a leakdown or compression test done?

                    I think I perfected my e30 search phrase on CL. It does catch some e21s though.

                        Not yet. Here's the interesting part - I have sweet smelling exhaust but almost no coolant loss. The heat works. It idles fine and the temp is stable. Something is wrong, though. If I didn't have a wedding in 6 mos I'd be looking for an m/s5x.

                          Weird. I'd still be skeptical, since it's using a VR hg. I still say find an M/S50, they're tons of fun!

                          In other news, my S50 is in...and not running. Main relays not turning on. The ground is getting 11.8v from somewhere. Time to trace down what grounds are getting power. Ugh.
