Where do you get Plug Wires for your M20

The cheapest i have found is like $480, there has to be aftermarket wires that are cheaper, or do i have to go to the scrap yard and get some good ones?

I have the 8mm Red Silcone wires on my car. Comes with a brand new loom and impulse sensor. Excellent quality, and looks/works great.

$136 USD.

I'll see about posting a picture in a second.

I like the black valve cover and intake manifold. I've been wanting to do that.

I need to pull the intake manifold back off and repaint it. It was damaged in several places when I installed the engine. My stepfather was supposed to watch the loose ends of the chain while i was under the car guiding the tranny and engine over the front subframe and into the tranny tunnel.

Needless to say he watched the chains smash the paint on the intake manifold several times....

That is why I havent sanded the ribs, or installed the plastic roundel over the cast roundel marks yet.

What kind of paint do you use for that. That is a nice look. even though I scrubbed the engine while it was out it does not look as good as that. I want to do that before i go get the car painted in the next few weeks.

I'll never tell anyone what kind of paint I use I will mention that it cannot be found at Autozone or any other car parts places, it is a professional product available only at Auto paint wholesalers.

I've seen your engine bay Jase, it's got a "little" rust

My engine is immaculate, so is the bay in which it resides.

well unfortunatly for me i live where salt is the enemy. I havent seen a clean e30 to buy so i just keep working on the old one. Put it this way i have seen cars around here that are 3 years old with rust starting. We cant all live in a temprate climate.

Yeah.. they were Coopers. Came with the car. I used them as rollers while it was in the paint shop. Only things left on the car was the suspension, wheels, and steering column. I never drove on the tires, but they sure made good rollers. I gave them away with the basketeaves when I sold them.

The paint is Lachssilber.

Jordan, I'd like to say that although you can be an ass at times, and sometimes rightly so, you have one of the nicest/cleanest e30's around. good job man! Now I'm not a huge fan of silver to begin with, but car definitely looks hot.
