    Definitely, you can always convert to n55 if you're able to find a guy switching to an RB or Garrett single turbo setup.

    Regardless I'm not afraid of the twins creating a reliability issue, they should give me plenty of play time and save $$ time for something cool.

      the N54 turbo's are very reliable as far as I know. Their only issue is the wastegate rattle which doesnt affect performance. But yes they dont flow much past 18-20 psi so a single turbo upgrade would be ideal for high boost. Then again a FBO N54 is more than enough in an E30 IMO.

        Speaking of turbos.
        Does anyone want to buy a rebuilt Holset H1C?

        I loved it so much in my M20 that I thought about starting an M50-T project. I bought a freshly rebuilt one a while back but life happened and I'm out of the E30 game for now.
        $400 for anyone on here.

              US 2 Both Directions - On US 2 east of the Stevens Pass summit, the paving is complete. Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., expect lane shifts for shoulder finishing, raising survey monuments, installing guideposts and other work.
              Speed is still reduced to 45 and when necessary, bicyclists and pedestrians will continue be bussed around the work zone.

                  Getting the car ready, replaced fuel pumps and o2 sensor, new tires, brakes, and fresh valve adjust.

                  I'm gonna be going to Tacoma on Saturday morning to pick up my brother. He doesn't care what route we take, cause he's practically blind. I would have loved to take hwy 2, but I gotta make sure my brother has the best time he can.

                  He may be almost blind, but he is so street smart, WITH a masters in psych

                    If you're going from Tacoma the best route IMO is taking hwy 18 to i90 and then over Blewitt pass.

                              I dot wanna get my hopes up that the owner doesn't know what he/she has, as it has smileys and alpina wheels. The front balance is roached, and te top seems to be in okay shape(didn't touch the car).
