What kind of brake booster did you use?
And did you stick with the same transmission or put a newer one in?

Nice cars ladies. You guys should line it up right now while they're still evenly matched (before Straight_6 does his "major" overhaul and has nothing but traction problems). You guys should teach others that the M50 conversion is definately the way to go.

It is more than worth it but is a killer to the wallet!! I'll line it up next year... hopefully if all goes well i may engage in a winter project as well!

The best of both worlds in my opinion. You get the better looks of the e30 and the older suspension while getting the stronger more powerful engine.

Good work

How about a 3.5L torque moster and put a turbo on that to get the high horsepower! (Excessive drooling!)

about a carbon fiber hood for my car, and not paint over it.
I will loss about 45-50lbs off the car too.

Damn, I wish I had that turbo!~!..

Straight 6, your going for that black/red combo right? It'll look really sweet if done correctly. Lotsa clean lines.

Ya i am going for the red black look, I,m just wondering if it would be too much black. I am going darker rims and matching cage.

Do you have any pics of your car with the hood down? I could try to colour it in.

One thing, you really have to black out your chrome.

No new pics since I have put the body kit on, other then the ones i posted. Yes I know that i have to black out the chrome thats why i was asking you about it at the last meet i already forget where you get it and what it is. Heres a grey E30, my buddy sent it to me.

Straight 6, what front spoiler is on your car, looks better than the "is" spolier? Is it part of a kit or something that can be bought separate?

BTW Your car looks great.*th-up*

I thought you were going to paint it, I believe Randy used the same stuff that I used. Its just this black out tape that you can get from Canadian Tire.
