I got some of the little bits and bobs for my throttle cables in the mail this week... all the way from the UK.

I should hopefully be able to finish up the throttle mechanism for the ITBs this weekend.

I'm also going to go with a dual vacuum manifold set-up, one for the brake booster and the other for the FPR and MAP sensor. Each throttle body has two barbs so I can run one line from each throttle body to each manifold.

I like the execution of this tubular front end...



It's for a pretty dope 2jz E30 drift car...

Now that, I like. The reservoir in the passenger side looks super clean.

They did dual pumps to get the gas tank in a spit that would optimize weight distribution, as the tank is really 2 tanks you gotta get gas to go from one side to another. They must have done something right cause the e30 is the car that made the company what it is today.

Makes sense... also added stability in the corners without all the fuel sloshing from side to side and the weight being low down... never said it was wrong just interesting... they could have devised a single pump with dual pick-ups I bet...

I made some adjustable sway bar links for the front sway bar last night after work.

I took the front shock assemblies off the car today so that I can shorten them another 3/4" just so that the shocks aren't riding so close to the bump stops and I'm going to weld on the brackets needed to run these "M3 style" adjustable links.

^ You will like the way the car drives with that front sway bar setup. I love mine! Although fancy adjustable links would be the icing on the cake

Right on!

Just watch the misalignment angle on those rod ends. Make sure when you fab the tabs on the strut housings they wont be too far off plane.

I've passed the e-test in my E30 legit once... before I dropped in my new motor lol.
In all honesty though I probably could have passed it last year too if I had a legit cat rather than an $80 vibrant cat lol.

I'm going to try running a 3 wire harness directly to the MS this weekend to see if that'll fix my jumpy TPS signal.
