  1. Hi there - not sure how this happened - but you have my email address in there as the contact?? Definitely not correct. Matt
  2. Digging up old threads... does anyone know offhand the size of that vent tubing?? TIA, Matt
  3. FWIW, I have run the blue silicon kit from Ireland for.... 4 years now, and I've loved them. Had no issues, and as an added bonus, they look totally cool. The fit was perfect, and they installed with no problems. I'd recommend. Matt
  4. bmdubl02 - do you still have the door panels?

    Mud Flaps?

    Does anyone have a pair of '02 Mud Flaps that they'd sell? Looking for something like those in the picture. Location: Connecticut
  6. So I'm looking at a Cannon Intake Manifold - like this one: http://www.iemotorsport.com/bmw/2002-fuel-intake/022cannon.html And I can't tell what you're supposed to do with the coolant lines? I'm not sure how this works - looks like there's a threaded hole for an input, but I'm not sure how that would work. Can anyone explain it to me? (Like I'm a fifth grader) The IE site says "You must reuse the brake booster line fitting (BMW #34331102538 and #07119963355), and the water jacket housing from the underside of your original 1-barrel manifold." But I just plain don't understand that..... thanks in advance. Matt
  7. Just so everyone's aware - '02 Fest is alive and well - as far as I know, it's always going to be the Sunday of Lime Rock. The great guys over at Sports Car Restoration are also hosting an open house event on Saturday, August 31, from around 2-7 p.m. There's some info about '02 Fest here: www.bmw2002.us Hope that helps! Matt
  8. as has been mentioned, run, don't walk, but run away, from this one. Send me the wheels, though. Not sure what it would take to get it across the border, but you might want to start looking in Vermont and New York. Check Craig's list and Ebay - they are around.
  9. and what are the thoughts on rocker locks? http://www.iemotorsport.com/bmw/2002-valvetrain/02rockerlock.html Or should I just use the springs I have? or get new springs??
  10. aha!! I see it now (was looking on the phone before) - I didn't notice the tool installed in the second picture. That's awesome. As it stands now, my head has been disassembled, so I don't need to worry about getting the rocker shafts out - will need to worry about getting them back in though, I guess.
  11. ya - I'm following you on that thread as well - think I'm making some decisions based on info there. Think I'm going to end up going with the "all new" route - new IE 292 cam, new IE heavy duty rockers, new valves & springs... I'm not familiar with that tool - I'll have to look into it. Is that it pictured on the left?
  12. Not to hijack, but - what are the "good" alternatives to The Freight?
  13. Thanks Toby - that does help. I'm not sure what I'd do if I got the Schrick, as I don't think the rocker arms are being offered for sale, so I'd either be using the used rockers I have now, or new rockers on the used cam. I really don't know. Kind of leaning toward the Ireland cam and rockers & valve springs - all new, reuse the valves I have. But then part of me says to get it all new. Didn't think I'd have problems getting out of the gate....
