    I was just curious, I vaguely remember reading some of the fuss about the brand. Also, what is the nearest biggest city to Fall City...might need to make a trip today there for a Processor.

    Isn't VR what I had for my manifold gaskets? Just asking, because I haven't seen a single issue. *knocks on wood*

        Luckily we only used VR manifold gaskets, so you're good. It's that evil evil head gasket that you have to watch out for. Your shit is basically doomed to fail though because we replaced your vacuum lines with OE vs. shit we found at Ace. And ZF boxes are better than Getrag, and redrilled Style 5's are awesome.

                  Oh oh my turn.

                  And putting E36 suspension on your E30 for 5-lug is perfectly fine.
                  Geometry doesn't matter.

                      Agreed, that is a totally ignorant statement. There are no geometry issues with my E36 M 5 lug...if you use the wrong fucking parts, sure, it'll be castered like fucking mad, but when the proper late E36 stuff is used, works just fine.

                          Here I was thinking we were the niggas....

                          We should break the M42 down and replace the HG with a VR, run the piss out of the engine and see what happens...

                              What's the point of the horn anyway?
