        Nice score there, should make for a fun project. I'm getting all excited for the moonroof coming in.

          Intake Boot has a big rip, so if anyone has one for an 89 or 90+ please let me know. If it's near Portland I'll coordinate with Austin regarding some other stuff as well. Thanks All

              Engine is on a Stand now, and I took the down pipes off the manifolds, damn this thing is massive. Tomorrow, I'm taking my stripped M20B27 that was orginial to my car to pick and pull for the core charge, and probably pick up the remote master cylinder set up off the same car I pulled the motor from. also, I think I might have come up with a way to use these exhaust manifolds, when the time comes I'll experiment with it.


              So this is one of the problems, Not 100% sure which plug this is, I think it is the equivalent of the C101, I'm still learning about the wiring on these engines. Anyways, Obviously, It got crushed when I placed the spreader chain in the wrong side of the lifting point. needless to say, I need to replace that, or at the absolute least straiten the pins out.


              Also, this came from an automatic car, so I gotta get rid of all the automatic wiring bullshit. Pretty sure the plug on the right is for the auto module.

              I got a long ways to go, but I'll work on it slowly over time, and jump it into high gear once I am able to track down all the components.

              Yes, I do believe I went:

                      I forgot I had an old Gift Cert from Pelican & bought a new one. Just means the E30 is in the garage for the time being.

                        Haha, yup. Rain, shine, snow, whatever. The top is down and I'm enjoying the ride. No point in owning a convertible if you don't put the top down every chance you get!

                          Anybody know of LED sealed beams that don't look like complete shyte?

                          I want to have better lighting without having to convert from sealed beams to ellips just to then drop in a HID kit.


                          I found the Sylvania Zevo which pretty much fit the bill except they are high/lows... I am looking for just the low beams.
