an S50?? What happened to the stroker? Man, what is it with everyone wanting to go 24v? Seriously, you can get more than enough power from a 12v...In 30 years I think I'm going to have the last 12v powered e30 in existence.

Court, when you swap in the 24v sell me your dog leg tranny!

Yeah but for the cost of that power it's cheaper to just swap in a newer motor. Plus no more t-belt, sewing machine symphony sound

Keeping the dogleg though. 8) The wife is in Japan and we are currently looking at tourings to import when she returns home.

Thanks bro, it's been a long road. Now I'm back from the Middle East, still on isolated duty though and about to head on back to the Middle East.

I'll try and post more pics as I get them from John
