Re: Yoshi's E46 build

The physical casing is very different so I'd have to swap innards. That would include bearings and tools I still don't have. Plus, whenever the LS goes in, I'm swapping to the M3 210mm rear diff so welding the stock diff is great for now (it's a 188). I might look harder into LSD options for the M3 ...

Re: Merry Christmas guys

Wife's family has a couple of drag racer guys that run legit drag cars. Like not street driven, full on drag race cars. One guy is building a 2JZ ford falcon right now. But he's put it on the back burner so nothing is happening. Took him 8 months to get the right valve cover.

Re: Yoshi's E46 build

Well I'm still welding in the reinforcements. The package just showed up last night lol. LSD options for E46s are poo at best. The M3 diff is kind of an LSD but even for drifting they don't work well. No other factory LSD option unlike E30s. So then I have to get a $2k LSD from the aftermarket and t...

Re: Dexter Stage 6: No more motors!

On a half daily car, delrin is a bit too harsh to me. I can always change my mind. For now it's just going to stay stock as it is now unless it turns out the stuff in there now is bunk. I just got myself an electric wrench. After I got an expensive electric impact gun, my time in the garage has sped...

Re: Dexter Stage 6: No more motors!

You sound like me aside from not wanting to wrench. I don't have the time to, but I like wrenching. I've been looking into tools to make things faster. Next up on my list is an electric ratchet wrench. I got the impact to break stuff loose but some places are too tight. Like you get one click from a...

Re: Yoshi's E46 build

Sure? Technically it isn't even a swap since it's the same motor. Everything I'm doing now is to just get the damn thing running. Next step is to replace the two brake lines from the ABS unit back. Can't wait... It's not too bad from what I remember, I just hate bending lines. Especially since it's ...

Yoshi's E46 build

I suppose I might as well post this here cuz... fuck it. My forum I can do what I want to. I picked up a previously slammed hotboi 330 e46 with a shot engine, some body work issues, and lots more issues for $1k delivered to my house. Can't really complain honestly. This car was so bare bones, they o...

Re: Dexter Stage 6: No more motors!

E46 M3s are more expensive than they are worth. People always complained to me about how BMWs needed "special tools" to work on them. Really it was just internal and external torx bits. But so many other manufacturers use it. Now with the E46 and newer, you need special vanos timing tools ...

Re: Dexter Stage 6: No more motors!

I should probably show pictures of what happened. IMG_20171018_173112_540.jpg Capture.jpg Don't worry, I shaved my head soon after this picture. 20171021_100004.jpg On the bright side, my garage now has drywall and insulation! I'm gonna mud and paint in the spring since it's so cold and I'm lazy. I ...

Re: The Rust Project

I would have expected at least SOMETHING from 3m. It rusted probably the fastest of the bunch. Even faster than the galvanizing from home depot.

Re: Ressurecting E30Tech - The story thread

Yea I hate giving other people my stuff. Private hosting is pretty worth it to me honestly. But even then, maintenance is a pain. I hate the cloud but it's just so damn convenient.
