  1. I would prefer to use TIG on that. Maybe phone some engineering shops and ask if they can weld thin sheet with tig. Shouldn't cost much. Sent from my SM-N920C using Tapatalk
  2. Stock springs cut by one coil.
  3. Lowered with stock wheels.
  4. Sheepskin was very popular in the 60s and 70s in South Africa. The summer heat meant your back would be constantly sweaty with vinyl and sheepskin would keep you nice, cool and dry. It was and still is hideous though. Sent from my SM-N920C using Tapatalk

    BMW 2002 Hommage - Video

    I think the idea was to create something with a similar design philosophy rather than a retro 2002. Bolt-on flares, massive airdam, turbo livery and a spoiler. All they should do now is make it stupid fast and sell 1000 of them. I like it, it's not subtle, and not elegant by any means, but then neither is the 2002 turbo. Sent from my SM-N920C using Tapatalk

    M90 Vs M88 (M1) 3.5 6 cyl

    Here in South Africa you could buy a '83 745i with the m88 engine, 0-60 in 7s. We also had the e30 333i, fitted with the 733i engine. We also had an aluminum bodied e30 with an Alpina 2.7 amd e30 m3 suspension, called the 325is. A few other unique BMWs as well. Funny things we had to do to get RHD performance BMWs. 333i 745i with m88
  8. I like the idea. Not sure there is much of a market for it though since most track cars would use different gearboxes. Anyway, I think you can simplify the design a bit to make it cheaper to manufacture. Great work so far, keep it up.

    1600ti fs in europe

    I will try and dig up some pictures. I know I took many of the stripping process. Sent from my SM-N920C using Tapatalk

    1600ti fs in europe

    Uhm, that owner... was me. When I bought the car, its seats were redone in nasty black vinyl. Upon stripping the interior i found original looking blue carpet against the rear kick plate. The rest was grey. I also found strips of blue vinyl under the rear seats. Nothing concrete I guess. Anyway. This is not my car btw. Mine is still undergoing restoration.

    ti vs NK airbox

    Aren't the two caps identical? I'm not sure but when I get home after Christmas I will check mine. If they are, then you can swap them around to make the intake be at the top or the bottom. I believe the NK airbox does not have the cut away that was needed for the ti booster.

    Cam for 1600ti

    Pictures, pictures! We need more pictures! To answer your question, in short, yes. But there are some things to consider. The 1600 likes to rev but sacrifices a lot of bottom end power compared to the 2002, the same thing happens with more aggressive cams, so you might lose some low end torque, but will definitely gain power in the mid and high range. Personally, with the higher compression and the rev-happy nature of the 1600, I think a cam would work well. The key with all DCOE engines is to get it tuned properly.
