So during the fall colours cruise a couple issues came up, couple exhaust hangers broke and i cracked my oil pan, (suprise bump) :/ i have my new oil pan that i got from kennys, as for the exhaust... im installing a custom exhaust for my now rolling turbo project!!

Today i ordered: m30 tcd manifold, mls head gasket, arp studs, 42lbs injectors, tial blow off valve and wastegate and some gaskets and stuff

What i have so far: turbo (originally installed in my e34), intercooler (originally pruchased for my e34)
Waste gate down pipe (from e34), turbo timer (from e34), some gaskets and stuff left over from e34,

Im also going to be getting my style 5s, polished and painted hoping they look as good as they did on the e34 on this car

As for suspension, i have a lot of left over e34 stuff like, 540 front struts, im going to try installing my barely used h&r sports and my bilstein shocks onto my e28, i have to do some matching to make sure it all fits and i hope it does, so i can use some parts and save some money!!

As for tuning, the plan is to either go all out and do a megasquirt, which some friends have agreed to help me with since they have more experience, or do a maf conversion and moates ostrich 2.0 like my e34, i like the moates as i am firmiliar with it, but it im not sure if it will allow me to get to the power levels id like to be at in the future, sooill have to do some planning and research
