why the hell would you paint it all in one piece than seperately if you STILL have to take it apart to put the gaskets in?? That is such a ghetto build. I'll put 5 bucks on that paint will flake off within 15mins of the engine running. IF it can even make it that far without blowing up.

PS you painted you engine the wrong colours.

PPS Your sideskirts are STILL on backwards smartguy

I think he meant that he put the pieces together for the pic, but did not actually assemble it in terms of bolting it up.

Rod, this guy is quite an idiot. Read his previous posts on here and on e30tech. Don't defend him.

Jamie you are right. This guy totally doesn't make sense.
