I've noticed alot of you on the board are IT's or into computers, as

I've been a FAQer since Steve, Rob and Trent conceived the idea.

I'm looking for some PC parts to build a system for a digital audio

workstation, and I'll trade for my performance, or really nice stock

stuff, although I'd rather have the cash. Please email me with what

you have to work with.I also have stock parts that have been

restored, bought new and never used, or just those little pieces

that you're trying to find. I don't have any of these parts here, so

I'm going by memory, and this list is not all inclusive.

Performance/Usefull Stock parts:


expensive model, Allows you to adjust timing advance starting

point, rate, and final advance infinitly, plus more.

-Brand new PERTRONIX IGNITOR. points replacement model

number 1847V,

-FLAMETHROWER COIL. Used for a few months, but no flaws.

-BIG BRAKE PARTS. complete 320i rear brakes, 528 master

cylinder (the correct one to use for this conversion), ATE vented

calipers from Volvo,

-Complete 318i fuel injection system pulled off a working car by

2002Restorations in Oregon (I cleaned it all up, but have not used


-Complete '87 Volvo/Bosch LH 2.4-Jet fuel injection system with

new wiring harness (the problem on the orig. volvo part was

disintigraded wire insulation) I will part these systems out


-PERFECT COPPER 320i RADIATOR, no bent fins, and no clogs.

Was re-cored, so it's newer than the car I pulled it out of. Has

temp. sensor,

-MM Ultimate 4-spd with less than 40k (actually 33k according to

02 head I bought it from; I haven't installed it.) w/ Ireland Heavy

Duty mount, new rear seal installed and will include loose shifter

and front seals,

-Brand new CONTROL ARMS, Mobile Tradition OEM quality

-Brand new BALL-JOINTS with stainless hardware, TRW OEM


-Brand new 215/45R13 Sumitomo HTR 200+ TIRE, never

installed, you need flares and at least 6" wide wheels for these.

Better ratings than alot of the high dollar tires at TireRack.

-4 13x6 BBS basketweaves with BBS center caps. I think they have

an offset of 25, perfect for an 02 with wide tires.

-CUT ST SPRINGS, 1 coil off rears, 1.5 coil off fronts. I made very

clean, straight cuts with my brand new dremel reinforced cutting


-ST 19mm REAR ADJUSTABLE BAR, the old, (I think hard to find)

one. They are better than the newer designs because the stiffness

is infinitly adjustable as opposed to having just three positions.

-ST 22mm FRONT BAR. All the ST stuff is vintage (I have receipts

and brochure from ST down in SoCal, but I think it was late '70s)


Some unusual things include 1 pair of rear spring pads, and solid

polyurethane rear-subframe mount inserts.


Germany. I removed ALL the beginning rust monsters at the

welds, and painted it 1500* (degree) chrome.

-2 EXHAUST DOWNPIPES. Brand new ANSA still have stickers,

never installed.

-FACTORY BUILT BMW m10(e12 head) ENGINE. First round on ALL

parts. Always very well maintained, new water pump, oil pan seal.

Has 165 psi comp. on all cylinders. Sounds too good to be true,

but Rick Haner tested it, as well as Bavarian Motor Sport, both the

best shops I've heard of around here. I have papers from the test.

Perfect compression for a light turbo setup, or just a stock power

plant that will run forever. I prefer someone who can pick it up in

Northern California, but if able I will ship.

-BLUE FLO-FITS. adjustable knee bolsters. Passenger side is still

almost as stiff as new, drivers side has some depression in the

foam, neither have any tears or large stains. There are a few little

stains close to the tranny tunnel from P.O. I kept them covered.

These are more comfortable than the e21 Recaros I've sat in, and

they come with 02 rails. I am something like 5'10" and they put

me at much safer height than the e21 Recaros. The height is

actually adjustable...


way you can imagine. Has the double stack slider faceplates,

which are beautiful, Most people who have these are not stupid

enough to sell them, because you can't buy them new, and you

can't restore them.

(I have SOME pics, and I can take some more if you're not in a


I'm looking for:

-some kind of Tyan Dual Athlon MP motherboard,

or maybe a new version MSI K7D with AMD 760MPX chipset,

-2 Athlon XP 1600+ thruough 1800+'s (or maybe higher that I

can mod to make MP 2400+'s),

-a really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really quiet high

quality case (I'm thinking Antec SX800II, or that Antec AMG one...

(Whatever the one is that Thermaltake uses to make their cases),

or a Thermaltake case.

-some kind of really, really, really, really, really, really, quiet and

expensive power supply to go with the case. Probably should be a

500 watt for what I'm doing, keep in mind the Dual MP


-(depending on the motherboard I use) non-ECC or ECC 512MB

DDR 2100 or higher. Mushkin, dual bank Black memory. If

someone can hook me up with a Dual MP board, which requires

ECC memory, then Crucial, Mushkin, (not Value-RAM) Kingston,

Samsung, Infineon, Mitsubishi, or (not value-select) Corsair

memory in 512MB or 1GB sticks with ECC will be perfect. I'll

consider anything else that I can use for a digital audio

workstation- fast hard drives, additional pro-audio sound cards,

TC Electronics cards, etc.

as there's plenty of hardware you could use too. You never know what kind of great old outboard tube-gear people have sitting around, or things like TC Electronic Finalizer/+ (which I have), mic-preamps, compressors (a Distressor pair would be nice), Tascam DA78/98HRs, HHB Portadats and other gear. I have an HHB PDR1000 and a DA78hr myself for my live recordings. Frankly the computer related gear doesn't have much trading value, and the outboard stuff isn't really that much better. My recordings are all in the surf/instro genre and this review was a release earlier this year that I did on DA38/DA88s. The '02 connection is that I'm pictured on the cover taling to three chicks wearing my Golf-colored BMW t-shirt. I master more CDs than I record normally.

I gotta have something I can record all this gear onto. So that's

why I limited it to the computer genre of audio gear. I already

have all this stuff like a patchbay, sampler, a couple $100 mics,

cables up the wazoo, a cheap Alesis stereo compressor, my guitar

rack with a Stereo Comp/Gate/Limiter and Roland DEP-5, a '68

Fender Vibro Champ, and unknown year Ampeg mercury with all

the old US tubes (not surf amps :). Now I could play surf with the

Peavey Classic 30, or my new TubeWorks 100-Watt head though...

Which I need a speaker cabinet for.,,

OK, so I'm also lookin' for some more microphones. Especially a

pair of large diaphragm condensor mics or AKG D 112 or Sure

Beta 52, but anything goes, tube or high end preamps with any

kind of additional on-board frills, mixers, headphone amps,

studio headphones, a TC Electronics Finalizer/+ (or some other

new fancy thing they put out), a really, really, really, really small

minidisc recorder with lots of controls and a stereo mike to go

with it (for bootlegging concerts), a 750MB Zip drive USB, what

else can I think of?

I have all the computer software I need, and if computer gear

doesn't have much trading value then isn't that a good thing? (for

me :))

Thanks f1reverb, got any free CD's I could listen to?

I got a kick out of your link, but it kept going over to

reverbcentral.com before I could read your review.

Plug that sucker into a 2x10 cab, and you'll have a great recording amp. I used to have a '72 Vibro Champ. Is yours a silverface with the black vertical lines?

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
