a little update..

okay so I have been busy buying parts and working to make pay cheques to buy parts, but i thought i'd give everyone a little update in an attempt to bring this thread back from the dead

So ive managed to get myself a mint black interior conversion courtesy of 2 max members. For those of you who don't know, My car was retrofitted with Subaru forester leathers that matched the color of my ugly beige interior pretty darn good but were ugly as sin and were made for people 5 feet and shorter..

New seats



Also got the matching door cards, a minty dash to replace my cracked one, and a glove box to replace my broken one (not pictured), all courtesy of Mr. Richie @ Rebirth

Also, Things didn't go as planned, so we ended up using a 413 Red Label OBDI ecu to make our lives easier, quite intrigued to see the result of this.

Front and rear strut bars and some brand new goodies i scored



A brand new set of smoked depo signals



And since the steering rack from my donor E36 was shot, I had to pick up this guy courtesy of Fil @ Eurostyle

Top (plain stock e30 rack), Bottom (04' 330ci e46 steering rack 3.0 lock ratio)



oh and my favorite one.. my very own set of S52 Camshafts



also should be ordering my billy sports this weekend, picking up some e90 drop hats and calling it a day for part shopping, I then let Mr Pagani @ ACP do his magic, and await the finished product around the end of April.

Thanks Rich im excited and anxious to see what kind of monster ive created here.. Its got at least one part from every single 3 series except the F30, not to mention the e34 and e28 parts, and the e32 wheels loll.
That 4.10 would've already been mine if i was running a G260, if i run that with the zf ill be revving stupid high on the highway and i wouldnt even need 1st gear no more lool its too bad i didnt know about that 3.73 before, but Alex has got already got me lined up with a custom 3.73 with 40% locking vs the 25% oem so im quite pleased with that. But my buddy just picked up an eta and is looking for plastic bumpers, some wheels, fenders etc.. perhaps you can help? lol

So I received my "S52" cams in the mail shortly after the update I made, only to realize that I was sold An S52 exhaust cam and an M52 intake cam. But as it turns out it was an honest mistake and the the seller was oblivious to the fact that they were different cams, long story short he instantly went out and got me the right intake cam after i have filed for a dispute on Pay pal, it is in customs in Windsor and should be in my mail some time within the next week.



And as it gets closer to the due day, Alex has been quite busy himself, but is kindly still keeping me updated as we go along, here are some pics of the progress.

Crappy Front OEM Suspension all out




Old open 3.73 vs New custom built 3.73 with 40% locking



installed






Old flywheel vs 14 lb flywheel



OEM Clutch and PP vs Stage II Clutch and PP


Brake booster modified
