  1. I have #3 and they are trashed, so I would be good with any aftermarket option that was similar looking, assuming price isn't outrageous. I would also say that #3 begs for some sort of design in the middle, maybe a replaceable plate so people have options - BMW, 2002, ///M, ///M2, etc.
  2. Already done, NiCopp lines w/EFI pump, FPR is adjustable from 3 - 60psi, running carb now and with a spring change, can run EFI
  3. It's comparable because whenever someone asks about an F20 swap, a lot of the replies are "just rebuild your M10" and usually followed up with "turbo it" Plus, most M10s are well used and probably in need of a rebuild (mine was), whereas an F20 has lots of life left and doesn't need a rebuild, it would be a waste of money. My point is the cost issue, it's not as cheap as people seem to think, and if you want more performance, you'll be adding thousands to the cost. If, however, you have a nice running M10 with some light mods and are looking for more, then EFI+turbo is probably the best cost to performance ratio, but not everyone is starting there.
  4. I've got $5K into my M10 rebuild, without the 5-speed swap cost. I regret not going F20. Here's my M10 cost breakdown, nothing super fancy here: I'll have another $1K into it for EFI, planning for turbo later. And for everyone saying "just turbo the M10", afaik, there is no readily available turbo kit, so there will be fab work involved with that with an EFI conversion needed first.
  5. I just took a look at mine, car sitting on the ground, the ends are parallel with the frame, and the middle/front is angled down. The other thing to watch out for is the metal washers on the end links, I had to grind mine down on the sides so they wouldn't hit the sides of the control arm.
  6. Not a chance. I don't remember the exact details, but the stock mounts would have to be cut out of the car, some new mounts welded in, and I think even some cutting/welding on the wrx seat mounts. I ended up going with a set of Corbeau seats I picked up off of CL cheap.
  7. Interesting, is the car slammed to the ground or something? I can't imagine someone angling them unless they had severely altered the ride height. Or maybe to clear some small rims? IDK.
  8. It worked just fine 45 years ago lol. But if you really want to DD an '02, that's fine, but I highly recommend a cheap 4x4 pickup with a working heater for those winter months.
  9. I will add to this: Buy the best car you can afford, $10K-$15K is probably about right, just don't expect a "perfect" car, these are 45+ year old cars and are bound to have small issues no matter the price. I went the cheap route, paid $4k for mine, lots of rust, didn't run, and I've put at least $20k into it (lots of mods), and it's still not on the road (really close though, although I'm sure I said that last year too)
  10. For some reason, it won't let me select 2 pictures in a response? This is just angle iron welded up, was able to use 4 gauge wire for the starter/ground, 8 gauge for the alt/main power. If you did a remote mount, you need to double that gauge.
  11. To update this thread, I did the Li-ION battery as @NYNick did My homemade mount weighs more than the battery.
  12. The W&N floor pan isn't a perfect fit to the original frame rail either, but mine was closer than yours. That bump at the rear of the pan is supposed to line up with the end of the frame rail flange, it also looks like the frame rail flange is overlapping the round drain plug area, so make sure that isn't pushing the pan up. Maybe you can slide the pan further back and see if it matches up better?
  13. Easy, E39 M5, because I already have one.
  14. I picked up a cheap set of old Corbeau A4s off Craigslist Only pic I have, made an adapter with angle iron (welding required) I'm 6'6", so it being further back and lower was a huge bonus for me.
  15. I wanted a plain looking one, got this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0082CXEI8/ Not installed yet though (shocker)
