    my new $1500 daily, its a nice 89 335i that I bought from a Australian car exporter customer of mine after giving him a good deal on a big toolbox, its got a 1990 bmw 535i 3.5L euro swap (250ishhhhhh hp) using the 535i engine harness also front to rear , lsd differential , new kyb's all the way around, ground control sleeves in the rear and stock springs up front ( will even out to 1 inch wheel gap on front and rear even soon as I get them) , has full Meisterschaft racing 2.25' inch mandrel bent stainless exhaust , needs a good cleaning and then some nice wheels and new bumpers (ive already got the new driver fender even black that came with the car) its fun to drive, slower than my SHO but handles like nobody's business, looking forward with what it has to bring and making it clean

    i would leave the caps on, straighten out the wheel gap, add a resonator to the exhaust and replace the missing rubber bumpers. new seat. buff/wax done!

    and pray that disty cap doesn't rub a hole in the radiator lol

    I would also consider re-routing the harness away from the valve cover.

    nah plenty of cars have harnesses resting on valve covers. hell most 4-cyl cars have the injector harness right up against it and the fuel rail.

    Damn this makes me sad. The fact that it's this busted already, and the fact that it's about to be busted again.

    Lookin' good!!! The inevitable transformation into a rolling shitwagon has begun. The best bang-for-buck entertainment in all motorsports.

    Might I suggest a little attention to the tail pipe next? (Shoobs?)

    Be sure and post some good close-up pics when the short block grenades....(along with the usual blabbering pseudo-technical explanation of what went wrong)

    That's what I'm talking about! The wing has Dilbeck written all over it - rear/side windows knocked out - add a custom Shoobs exhaust system (fender rubbing balloon wheels/tires optional) and pull the hood - perfect.

    You also know the length of the shifter doesnt affect the lengths of the throw when done correctly right ? Its really responsive
