              When is it going to stop raining? I don't mean to sound like a whiny little bitch, but I'm so done with the wet this year. My driveway is mud, my e30 has a trunk leak, and if another gigantic rain drop happens to fall from a tree and land on my neck - you know the kind that slithers down your neck and makes it under your shirt, I'm going to go insane.

                  "
                  Up for sale is an e30 project that I lost interest in finishing up."

                  ..um, that's not a selling point. Call it what it is, a basket case e30 or better yet, a clean shell. Even 911 shells I don't think would sell at that price with no drive train.

                  Course, if it sells, I'm gonna fix the rust in the bronzit in the garage and throw the shell on craigslist. It'll be a bargain at a grand!!

                    A 911 shell would sell double that with no drivetrain, depending on year.

                      I don't know, the 5 series booster and master in the race car (oh no, my secrets out!) is pretty decent feeling. Ryan actually likes the feel over his own PRO3 car..

                        Got a lead on a 320i booster, but might wait and give the iX a try... Took the booster off vacuum and I already kind of use to the peddle feel, so I could live with it for a while.

                        What 5 series is yours off of? I believe the iX, 535i and 735i are the same booster and MC.

                            ^oh yeah... and it pulls after 6000 definitely. I am SUPER HAPPY with the chip. now that the engine is all buttoned up I feel comfortable installing my new o2 sensor. Amazon is the place to get the o2 sensors for cheap by the way. Direct fit bosch.

                            the sssquid chip improved drivability really well. Like I said, in my town there are hills everywhere - you cant go any placec without traversing atleast 5 hills, and I dont need to downshift anymore to get up them, I can go 50 in 4th up most of them no problem. would recommend to a friend.

                              I really need to look to see if I have a chip, might need to get one someday. Got other crap going though ugh.

                              The chip go in the glovebox? I've never really thought about it

                                Not sure. I think it may have been a 535.. it was one Ryan had sitting in his parts bin, and my original one had issues. So when we reinforced the firewall (oops another secret) we installed the other master cylinder/booster. I'll see if I can get a pic of it while the weather is dry.
