2200 Miles

So i took the risk, decided to take the trip out to halifax and back in M30 swapped e30. She'd been giving some minor issues with coolant and belts but I was confident we'd fixed them up. No surprise 2200 MILES later shes running with no issues whatsoever! Have to give big props to Ryan at Auswil motors for the top end rebuild and engine swap!

All that being said, if anyone is out that way, i highly recommend driving the Waverly road that runs from Dartmouth to Waverly. I was staying with a buddy out there who lives in Waverly and I dont think i've ever driven such a fun twisty turny road with great views of the lakes! Anyone know any great roads around here they care to share?

You have to drive the cabot trail if you have time. Glad the car is running well

How does the M30 handle in the car? Do you find it nose heavy?

Yeah the cabot trail would have been really nice. I think I might do it next summer once the e30 is finished.

not at all, but i havent driven an m20 powered e30 in awhile now, Jesse and Lee have tested it out so they should have some idea. its hard to have it feel nose heavy with all that m30 torque drifting the rear end out in the corners though!

No real weight difference in my opinion. If there is at all the power and torque definitely outweigh the extra lbs.
