  1. Hi there, Larry! Yes, the girls are my secret weapon so they will be there.
  2. Same great event, new and improved graphics! I'm taking a month off from the BCR to make this one. My family wouldn't forgive me for missing it. Looking forward to the 12th! Brian
  3. I should have specified in my last post. Yes, we shimmed the driver's side a bit. Good luck with your pursuit of the 2000ti booster!
  4. Welcome to the FAQ NK forum, Dirk! It's great to read your post and I look forward to following the progress as you work on the car. Brian
  5. You're absolutely right about following up with IE regarding items listed as out of stock. If the Supersprint set doesn't work out, I may reach out to them about their shorty headers. Jim Huff's Gray Ghost is one of the NKs successfully using them. One more tip on the clearance issue with the booster: while the air filter elbows just cleared the tii booster, we adjusted a motor mount slightly to give a couple more millimeters.
  6. Wow, it's so helpful to hear that you are attempting the same thing with Supersprint. I have the later subframe so your experience with the idle arm is great to know before starting. I will definitely post an update here after moving forward. Thanks again. Brian
  7. Thanks, Nick. I'm glad you like the non-servo feel. I was close to going that direction but my mechanic had a spare tii booster so we gave it a shot. And it worked, but just. I know that 40s are they way that most people go with a mostly stock engine but my mechanic, who is also a good friend, has been doing this for 40+ years and says the 45s will give us more flexibility. Initially, he will essentially detune them and then we can open them up if I add a hotter cam. The fine tuning happens next week so I'll get to experience it for myself soon. I'm almost as excited about adding Pertronix, which went in at the same time, because the points kept closing and I was suffering hesitation issues as a result. We're also going to try some headers as early as next week. I know that most 2002 headers don't fit NK cars but I have access to a Supersprint set which I think can be made to work. My center resonator is leaking so we're going to try going from the headers straight back to my newish OEM rear muffler. More updates soon!
  8. My Weber DCOE 45s finally went in this week. Several issues arose in the process and most of them were related to clearance. The booster was on my radar from the outset, obviously, but the fit was even tighter than I imagined. There wasn't even room for the angled UNI filters I had in mind. An Ireland Engineering manifold would have made life a little easier because they aren't as deep as the three other types I tried, but those are out of stock. The solution was to swap out the original booster in favor of one from a 2002tii. A lot of 02 guys do this and it was definitely called for in my case. Even with that, it is a really tight fit in the NK. There is just enough room to connect 45 degree air filter elbows from Kooglewerks. Fortunately they are local and I ran across town to pick up a freshly machined set from Forrest himself. After some tuning early next week, I should be back on the road. I hope everyone had an enjoyable, albeit different, Thanksgiving! Brian
  9. I am parting with this vintage black, leather wrapped steering wheel. There is no indication of which brand, but "Made in Italy" and "7/79" are stamped on the back. On the front side there is a small sticker which reads "BMW Motor Sport", which may or may not be original, and a stamping reading "E 10733." The wheel measures 35 cm (13.78 inches). The leather shows signs of age but the stitching is secure and it is in good condition overall. Steering wheel only, hub and horn button are not included. $100 plus shipping.
  10. Hey there everyone. I'm sure some of you are watching the 1967 2000 tilux on Bring a Trailer but I thought I'd pass along the link, just in case: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1967-bmw-2000-tilux-sedan/ I posted a comment suggesting that the auction winner participate here on the FAQ.

  12. It is indeed a good deal but keep in mind that these appear to be from an E34 and are five lug. Brian
