      what the fuck are you two even talking about? My car came with a sedan fender rocket scientist. I never put it on it was already there.

      I had to laugh at how hard that is to figure out.

      I asked does a sedan fender FIT and everyone said no, when obviously because it was already there it obviously FIT!!!..

      Its an exercise in retardation to say otherwise. It fit for a year and a half. Looks wrong no fucking doubt einstein. HA.

          the hood I could take up but honestly it has no paint and is ugly.

          If someone wants the silver hood with dents and rust I could do that

            I don't know diddly squat about these cars so I'm guessing 150 is astronomical for a factory car? I haven't looked at the ecu yet. Hadn't planned on it. The guy I bought it from was a hack and he 'said' a chick from Gig Harbor drove it until he got it (which I tend to believe since there was a Canterwood parking pass in the backseat) so I thought it was pretty stock. Hell, still had the factory rusted out muffler on it when I got it.

                Well I know who he is obviously.

                Not a bad person actually. But if you want to argue with him thats your scene.

                car looks pefect though now that you two mention it.

                What seems wrong is that the hood is misaligned a touch but Ill probably have fixed that by the time i take pics.

                mtech one kit is painted new cabrio fender, trim peice the whole deal. Thanks for asking you zany e30 people.

                Its about a 7.5 of e30 cabrios around. Looks nice but there is still clear coat peeling in the rear quarter panel.


                I will be in portland in the next couple weeks but ill be there with the RV.
                Ill be there driving the cabrio around aimlessly soon enough.

                  Perhaps if your mind was made for thinking you would think again before insulting someone in the way that you have, or maybe not.

                    Im out of here.

                    Stamar II can be in charge of arguing about fenders with teenagers until I get back. Carry on.

                    Except that sedan fender is for sale.

                    Made for the sedan and coupe but it sure does fit on a convertible and look wrong.


                    40$ for someone who has a passenger fender problem contact the orignal stamar about that.

                      a totally stock one shouldve put ~135ft/lbs and ~100whp. my torque was there, but the whp was low.

                      what are the plans for the car? drive it into the ground?

                        Wow. Factory freak or something? Or do you think it's chipped? Is that along the lines of hp from a chipped eta? If I were to dig into the ecm, what would I be looking for? Again, I don't know diddly about these. :)

                        Yeah, I just bought the car so I could have something rear wheel drive while I put the turbo on my trans am. Of course I can't leave well enough alone and bought wilwoods, 16x8s, H&Rs and some fender flares. I cut up a spare manifold and screwed around with ITBs and a megaquirt but I think that's better left to larger displacement/higher rpm motors and never put it on. Honestly, the car will probably get the 5.3LSx out of my trans am when I upgrade to a 6.0/6.2 in that.

                            Take some thick wire and run a few more ground from your engine to your frame. Then report back.

                              it must have a chip of some sort. stock redline is 4500rpm and it pulls past that as well. there will probably be a sticker of some sort on the chip thats on the ECU. im in Lynnwood, wouldnt mind coming over and BSing with you and fully supporting your LS swap

                                When I first got the car the alternator wasn't charging as well as I thought it should so among other things I did a voltage drop test from the alternator case to the frame, and from the engine block to the frame. With the car running I got less than a tenth of a volt. To me this would say that the grounds a good? Is that wrong? Why do you think there are grounding issues?

                                It doesn't cut out at 4500 but at 5k exactly it has what I can only assume is a fuel cut/rev limiter. I've hit that a few times beating the snot out of this thing. :D Where is the ecu located in these things? I'm right off the freeway in Canyon Park area. I would not mind seeing another e30!
