    THAT is the ultimate LS1 repository.

    I suppose tubbing it would be going too far?

    That would be a fun swap. Manual or automatic? Would be the perfect car to integrate all the ancillary stuff. A/C, cruise, P/S, etc

So I just manual swapped it and ditched the panda interior for black with some b8 recaros. I think I only have a hand full of pictures. It was a great winter beater until I popped a turbo.

    The hatch is at the body shop right now getting fixed and retinted.

    It definitely made me appreciate wagons a whole lot more.
    send me a message when you want to sell it. we'll see how long my current e91 hangs out for. b5s4 is always an itch i wanted to scratch and i don't need to make crazy power (or want to, for that matter - i'm getting old)

    Where did everyone in the NW go?

    I got my LSe30 running. I've been commuting from Tacoma to Seattle all week. With no hood. It's fun. I have big grin.

    Let's set a minor record and have two posts in one DAY!
    Finally got my trim repainted, and of course, waited to buff the paint out until I put the trim back on. 'Cause why not make more work for myself?
    Finished the buffing and waxing last night. Seemed like a good time to post a pic of the old girl..

    M54b30 out of disgusting e46 vert and sitting in the barn.
    E30 sitting in the back corner just needing an engine.

    60,000 other things to do, but I want to start making 2 into 1...
    crap. Do I have a clutch? I do not remember...

    Does this mean I'll get a better job, get in shape and have a social life once I get this thing going?

    What have I been waiting for???

    When I drove Steves M54 swapped car back in 2012 it was life changing. That torque in an E30 is fantastic. You wont regret it

    I took an E36 shell to the scrapper today.
    $85 richer, for 1500 lbs of solid German undercoating.

    E21 shell a couple of years ago was only $20, but I don't remember what it weighed.

    This- all gets me 1 step closer to putting an M54B30 into the E30 shell.
    Driving the E46 makes me really want that engine in an E30.
    I refuse to grow a bushybushy beard, or wear ass- hugger elastopants.

    not quite drunk. But headed that direction.
