  1. I think I may have gotten the last reasonably priced S14 several years ago from one of the good 2002 people who wasn't out to make a buck on the market. I am very thankful to have made those kinda friendships over the years here on FAQ and and places like MidAmerica02Fest. There is simply no way I could have justified buying one on the open market; back then, or especially now. Could I build a "faster" and "cheaper" 2002 with a turbo M44? yeah... Could I get more grunt from an M20? maybe so... Would a Honda lump rev higher and make more ponies? perhaps... Each owner builds what he wants and I will build this S14. I have the finished project in my mind and I think it will be cool. Will I flip it once it's done...not likely. I really just need to get busy on it, though. I do feel sorry for those who think they have to buy an M motor on BAT, or fleaBay... those numbers are simply ridiculous. EdZ
  2. Terrible news!!! Sure hope you can find the pieces to make it whole again. I know it's a long ways from you, but obviously, Germany is the place to look for replacement parts. I've always had luck searching on eBay-Kleinanzeigen https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-bmw-nk/k0 BTS-Teile has grills for you https://www.bts-autoteile.de/index.php/de/shop/1500-2000-cs2013-04-23-12-02-57/karosserie-ausstattung-zierteile2013-04-23-12-02-572013-04-23-12-02-57_8/results,71-80 Good luck to you, Ed Z
  3. Another great video! Wow...that Monza and those 935s are fast! Ed
  4. I’ll admit it... I have an electric pump on the ‘67 and “the project” and it certainly helps a lot.
  5. Here’s Ray “helping” Ben check valve tolerances at MidAm several years ago 😆
  6. Ben Thongsai for the WIN!!! He is most certainly awesome 😎 Here he is on the left after helping my buddy get that derelict e28 running after sitting many years. The guy is a flipping wizard mechanic. Brandon Littleton on the right...also mad wizard skilz. Ed Z
  7. Well crud... I always liked that car. I think you and I were bidding on it on eBay... Ed
  8. Monthly local Austin area meetup this morning. Terry Sayther finally has his Cabrio on the road. 😎 Ed Z
  9. “Optional windshield delete” 😆 Soooo... I use this on my ‘71 to fill the float bowls if it’s sat a long time. That car only has a mechanical pump and I got tired of cranking on it for a long time to prime it. Seems to work well enough 😁
  10. The car sounds amazing. This picture made one of the car threads on The Chive site 😎
  11. I was about to write the same thing! I've always had a laugh while reading the Blue Repair Manuals... "use BMW Tool # 47 to remove the flux capacitor retainer nut" Right... like I have any of the BMW special tools...much less a flux capacitor. Ed
