It was super cheap, and theres no rust. It has a $600 chip/speed density setup in it, bigger turbo, full exhaust, in dash blah blah blah.
I don't doubt that it's solid, just giving you a hard time dude lol.
You going to bring it out to auto-x?

Think you got lost to www.myjdmdodge.com.

JDM Chrysler... But apples and oranges..

The question was 'what's your winter project?' Not 'what's you E30 winter project'

And why are you here then?

Why am I posting in the e30 section, read the first page of the thread, now read again, first page of the thread in the e30 section, hmmm, well looks like I have an e30 project on the go, which means I posted about my e30 in the e30 section on a BMW forum page.

I don't post all over this BMW Fourm about my truck or caddy, cause they are not bmws, and people don't come here to hear about non BMW projects.

I don't come here expecting to hear about non-BMW projects...but if I do I don't care if it's a cool project. No need to get your panties in a bunch guys

Lol I think Rich's first post was joking lets all take it in stride

I like seeing what previous e30 owners have moved on to. And AWD drag cars are so left field from e30s that its almost a welcome relief :p

Ok, well if we want to talk about working on BMW's I'm pretty sure I have you beat in that area in every aspect.

It's not going to be a drag car. But it will be my toy meant for straight line schlackings.

I want to see what I can make on a stock engine. It put down almost 300whp and 320ftlb on it's current set up. I'm going to put a set of cam's in, that should yield close to 30whp. Along with a bunch of other little things I have in mind and want to experiment, my goal is 350whp. Which should be good for low 12's high 11's.

It's on a ECM link V3 (A fancy chip that performs magical things and powers 9 second drag cars on a stock ecu) with a speed density conversion, that alone is worth half of what I paid for the car.

I should post pictures of my EJ207 swapped WRX.

If you didn't happen to have the ECM link would you opt to go with a DIYPNP MS kit? They sell one for that motor for less than the ECM link and it'd give you a bunch of useful tools like on board boost control, launch control, flat shift, table switching on the fly etc...

I seriously can't believe your have to be better online attitude sometimes, I hope to hell you spend more time working on bmws if your an apprentice at at dealer(not sure if you got your liesence yet) so ya your spending 40hrs a week working on them to make money.

But that has nothing to do with this thread

Wish you could take a joke, if I hurt your feeling I'm sorry, I understand as a young tech wanting to build and learn about all different cars and platforms to build knowledge, that's parts of the job, and I did it back in my early
20's when I was doing my hours. I changed paths but still spend a lot of time wrenching and helping others with their car, and love the e30's, sorry but when I come to the e30 section I do expect to be able to read about them, not other cars, free time to enjoy a passion is limited as a new father, when I want to read about non BMW cars I don't log onto a BMW site.

I'm not sure. I've always wanted to do an MS setup. But tuneable chips are so much easier. Cold starting is never an issue, and you always have a base tune that works.

I'm never serious....

I'm sorry I polluted your E30 thread...

I helped someone with a M30 swap at work.

Speaking of tunable chips... Or tunable factory ecu...
Im using tunerpro rt with the ostrich 2.0 hardware into the stock ecu. Pretty much gives you the same as a standalone. Only drawback is that you still have to use the afm. But for $350, thats not all that bad.

Tuning cold start isn't too bad. The first day it was really cold I had to try starting 4 times before the car would stay running. The next day I increased the priming pulse-width and cranking pulse-width a bit and it only took two trys starting. The next day I tweaked it a bit more and now it fires up normally. Having a solid base tune is nice, but if there's enough guys out there who have already gone standalone, it's usually not hard to get your hands on a good base tune.
