New guy from Maryland.

Hey, name is Andrew. Just wanted to introduce myself.

I currently own a '91 alpine white ii 4door 318i (getting swapped now) that is an abused and mistreated play toy for me to learn to further driving and sliding abilities. It's a totally pos, but it's my pos and the suspension is set up very well for drifting so it's a good time.

Just wanted to say hi, oh and by the way I'm here in a Canadian forum because I know a few of you guys have imported 325ix tourings with the more relaxed 15 year old standard. Well the US pretty much throws in the towel at 25 years and lets you bring in what you want, and if my terrible 'merican ejurmakasion serves me right, '88s will be 25 years old quite shortly. So I will be poking around here trying to track one down, because after the beating I've put on my current car drifting I'd really like a clean, classy, more grown up less tacky (than my current e30) vehicle to replace my truck as a daily driver.

Oh and pics of the crappy, beat to hell, drunken graffiti'd drift rat are below



Mid swap now

Dont know if there are many angry hateful purists here but this should bother them. Swap is a Ford 302 with a Holley 650 double pumper, trick flow twisted wedge heads (shaved .020) cam and supporting hardware.

I figure the car is already past the point that purists will ever like it, so lets just turn it into a fire breathing smoke pouring animal, but that's just the redneck in me talking.

I also am doing a rebuild on a 2002, that will be a much more conventional purist approved car once done.

Oh and the coils are ground controls, gc camber plates up front, ie camber bolts in the rear.

Lastly, no on the drifting videos. I've never really considered myself good enough to ask someone to film. Post swap I'll definitely make an exception.

Welcome and good luck. Can't wait to see the vid when it's done.

What motor mounts are you using?
