    I picked up the storage unit car from BHam, so I'm gonna need a passenger fender. Anyone have one locally before I order?

    This is the best ad for an e30 related item I have ever seen. This guy is fucking nuts

    I thought a bad tps would make the car run lean at full throttle because it would fail to switch over to the wot fuel map? Ill order one if thats not the case though because that seems like an obvious answer if not.

    A bad TPS can absolutely cause a running rich condition. They all collectively give data that the DME uses to determine fuel mixture.

    Sorry I should've given more background info,

    I recently installed 17# injectors and the miller maf conversion on my e30, I then flooded my engine so rich that the bearings went kaput. I chalked it up to miller being shitty

    so I swapped my motor out this past weekend and converted everything back to stock. I used everything from the "new" motor besides the tps sensor, O2 sensor (which is new), plugs (which are new), and the afm (which shouldnt be the problem because it ran rich with the miller maf setup?).

    I guess a better question would be...
    1. can a bad tps cause the car to run rich at full throttle?
    2. how would one test to see if the fuel return line is plugged?

    Has your AFM anti-tamper cap for the adjustment screw been removed? If so, throw the AFM away, those are never to be messed with.

    Test and/or replace your blue coolant temperature sensor, too.

    So I've replaced my O2 sensor and spark plugs but my car still runs really rich at full throttle (quite a bit of black smoke at full throttle), anyone have any ideas on how i should diagnose it? Its a stock m20b25, stock afm, stock injectors, and a stock chip.

    I’d frame the box and probably throw the E30 parts in the scrap bin.

    If I had something shipped to me like that I would poo in my pants

    Kooglewerks ships spoilers in some wood crates that are pretty cool, but not nearly that level of crazy.

    lol, but I was trying to show off a bit. FedEx loved it. Has no problems shipping that way.

    Received one packaged just like this. Worked just fine.

    ECS has a good sale on z3m diff covers. I bought one today.

    My white e30 is getting the turbo 24v out of my nephews faux M3 now!

    I’ve had a bunch shipped to me, and most often, it’s just a box in a box in a box. It’s not like the UPS is going to fuck up a diff. Maybe drop it on their toe, but unless it’s got the Z3 finned cover WGAF...

    Does anyone have an e30 auto trans output flange? The four bolt setup without a guibo?
