    BMW at the tuner

    Ya man! At least our cars don't look like storm troopers, not that there is anything wrong with that!

    BMW at the tuner

    Hitting the dyno on Thursday! Waiting for a 911 to get out the way! This is going to be off the hook! Get ready for some awesome, gas burning, piston screaming video! (ignore the caddy. Feast your eyes on the countach in behind.) I don't know what you guys think but I would say the '02 is the prettiest of the bunch!
  3. Took the box to the local rad gy Took the box to the local rad guy. He purged and pressure testing. It is holding well so, once the bluntly expensive plastic cup and o-rings show up, back in and time for another run. I need to only get the expansion tank in for the fuel pump and I get to turn the inka beast over. A moment long anticipated! Thanks again.
  4. Yes sir, idler arm. Aluminum, you are back into coaxing...
  5. I pulled it out and ordered the blunt kit. 100 bucks! Wow! Thanks for your help!
  6. One of the few times you get to go nuts with a hammer! Seriously, wack it really good a few times on the sides (don't hit anything threaded)!
  7. Cool. Do you have any pics or process suggestions on how to tear it down? My box is a 76. Will the 72 conversion work on a 76? Thanks again!
  8. Awesome, thank you! In the firewall, on the input side (passenger side). Right where the input hose attaches. There is a metal flagged plate there. Does that make sense? I suspect that is the valve and it is a seal issue.
  9. I haven't one but I am having trouble with my heater. Mine is leaking at the input stalk. Have you been into that area? Do you have any pictures or advice on how to fix a leak there? Suggestions for vendors for purchased parts? Thanks in advance!

    Heater leak

    I just put some coolant in my car with the plan to fire it up. I was disappointed to see leaking at the entry side of the heater. It looks like it is coming from what I believe is the valve. Anyone have experience with this and what it takes to fix it?
  11. Hey Steve, You know, you are right. My car is a factory sunroof car and I don't see any access holes to the cabin. There is a pretty big gap over the wheel well to the trunk. If those holes where open, I would imagine it would pull some pretty decent air.
  12. If the car has got good ventilation, I would leave it. I think more ventilation is better, personally.
  13. They go on the upper side of the main body, at the front of the trunk. Relative position along the car is below the rear windscreen. Pop your trunk open and have a look. It is part of the venting system. Rather than the plug, some cars have an elbow shaped vent that goes from the interior of the car to that oval hole. If you don't have the elbow, you have the vent. As far as the drainage lines, I boxed mine in at the bottom of the wheel wells for the front and the back. These cars rust really bad at the back of the front quarter, will rot away at the interface of the car and the body there. Best to keep the water off the car as much as possible.
