  1. Realistically, you can meet 2 of those 3 requirements. You'll also need to budget for suspension and brakes since you're almost triple the HP of what the car was designed for.
  2. Reconsider on using stainless braided line, it's still rubber and it will still deteriorate over time, lots of people complain about that expensive hose leaking after 6-10 years. My plan is to run Nicopp 3/8" hard line feed and return lines, following the factory hard line that runs along the rocker. I'll have rubber connections from the Nicopp to the regulator and fuel tank, but they'll be short and cheap/easy to replace in the future if they deteriorate/leak. Unless you have a Ti, it's not high-pressure, my Weber is set for 3 psi, being fed by an electric fuel pump.
  3. I'm more the WYIT type (While You're In There) If you go for aftermarket pistons, consider longer rods as well. Read up on Bore/Stroke ratio benefits to see if it's worth it for you. Most aftermarket rods come with ARP bolts. I also recommend replacing the timing chain and gears, because you've got it all apart. I went to a single row setup, it was cheaper and in theory less rotating drag. because racecar Oh yeah, oil pump chain as well, but you'll want to get the BMW part, the aftermarket pieces are known to be the wrong size. Here's my blog entry with some of the stuff I did:
  4. Get a thread chaser kit, works great for cleaning up holes and bolts and doesn't remove as much material as a tap set would. Your original bolts probably have some rust on them and the new pieces probably have paint on the threads. This is the kit I got, picked it up from a local auto parts store, I've used it a ton in my rebuild, just a little oil and it cleans them right up https://www.amazon.com/Lang-Tools-2584-15-Piece-Restorer/dp/B000XJ48V0/ref=sr_1_9
  5. Almost done with the fuel tank mount, just need to add in some 16 gauge sheet metal on the sides Cut out a LOT of rust, almost an inch above the original gas tank lip to get to good metal Angle iron brace tacked in Tank mount welded in
  6. What I think is happening, is you push the "Submit Reply" button and it goes through, but it doesn't look like it does, so you hit the button again, and it gives you the 60 second warning. You hit it after 60 seconds, it doesn't look like it goes through, and the cycle repeats. The site was pretty much down for me all day so I didn't get a chance to see if the double post issue is still happening.
  7. Worked on the new fuel tank install, I still need to cut out a lot of the rusty remains of the old trunk, reinforce it, and then weld in tubes to the tank frame. Frame almost done Just laying in place: Test fit, gas fill tube to the left. Aftermarket gas fill door fits almost perfectly:
  8. Getting "Something went wrong, please try again" page occasionally. Also, when replying, I get "New posts within a short time frame are limited.

  11. Double post, appears the system is still glitched
  12. Extremely tempting, sounds like a good deal for someone.
  13. I'd be curious how well it fits a W&N replacement floor pan. The stock frame rail wasn't an exact match to that either, wonder if it's worse or better?
  14. I use High-Tack as well. It's non-hardening unlike some of the other sealers. Maybe it's overkill, but a lot of the stuff on my car is overkill.
  15. Looking at the pic again, it does kind of look like that, the guibo looks straight between top flange bolt and driveshaft bolt. One of the issues I'm fighting with my 5 speed swap is the output shaft angle, the trans needs to go up, but there's just no room. I have brand new IE HD motor mounts, and I think they may have raised the engine a bit. I'm hoping they'll eventually settle, they have 0 miles on them right now.
