    That moment you find out your injectors are much smaller than what you thought you had.

        Hows the engine in that car?
        I know a place, which would work, but the engine will be out for a mild while so travel time & all that adds up. I did do this method on the barn swap.

        Not a whole lot of information on the engine, which once I get it on a stand I'll know more, but was told by the previous owner it ran great when running. The car developed a starter & ignition wire issue(s) which makes sense in post# 30080 from what the Previous~Previous owner had installed. Previous owner did however install a new timing belt / water pump etc. roughly a few hundred miles before parking it for the winter last year where it has sat for almost 10 months. I'll still change those parts as well

        Kinda curious to learn more about the 88' engine, because 88' seems like the transitional period for E30 as a whole, but don't quote me on that.

        I'll keep that in mind if my sister heads down from Everett soon.

        Do they have decent folding one's? I haven't seen/check the R3v HB thead in awhile.

        I'll try to remember this when looking for the right M50 injectors.

            For when you do get injectors,

            Good table of the Bosch fuel injector specs.

            Cheapest I've been able to find so far for brand new ones is on amazon.

                    That's bad ass. Do you get a shop discount on those? I'd love to start collecting some Matco stuff.

                      Yeah I do. I'm not going to get EVERYTHING Snap-on/Matco/Mac but for the stuff I use all the time, it's nice to have something quality. Especially when I see the nice stuff the tech's at the shop have. The Blue Point one was tempting but just couldn't spend that much on a damn tire pressure gauge. lol

                        That is a useful deal though. I would spend money on that or a quality digital torque wrench ... everyday tools the craftsman are good enough for my ham hands.
