  1. Ahh ok. I’ll be making a custom plenum so that’s good to know.
  2. Nice setup Tim, that’s exactly what I was hoping to do. What injector rail is that? Did you have to make custom brackets? Edit: I just noticed the extra brackets. If you had to make custom brackets anyways how come you had to set the injectors in so deep and put the o-ring elsewhere?
  3. If you want to send me the $2,000 for a pair of front seats I’d be happy to get the Aardvark set. Until then I’ll stick with the E30 Sport seats I got for $160.
  4. I’ve got a spare E30 318 M10 motor but I’d like to do a custom intake setup for boost. Maybe there’s a way to utilize the 318 rail and mounting with the e21 manifold. If all else fails I’ve got a TIG...
  5. Jesus. That's just not safe. You can't just replace structural parts of the car with flat sheet because you rolled a 2mm bead into it.
  6. Sorry but this is just downright not safe and I caution anyone else from removing that hump without replacing the structure in some way. 2.5mm of bead rolling depth is not a structural substitute for 100mm+ of vertical deviation (the hump) in the sheet metal. Even the corrugated sections ON the hump have a taller cross section than the bead rolled panel. Remember, every shape and feature pressed into the sheet metal is there to serve a purpose. If it didn't have a purpose it wouldn't be there because it'd be a hell of a lot cheaper to make it out of flat sheet. That hump is there to add lateral rigidity to the chassis and structural rigidity to the section of floor that sees all the stresses of a belted-in driver being violently thrown in their seat during an accident. A roll cage will add the lateral rigidity back to the chassis but it just became a weapon if your seat rips out of the floor in a crash.
  7. @mgben - beautiful brackets! How tall are you? I read someone else's thread saying you want to be 50/50 over the hump but it looks like you opted to go further back and only needed rear legs. How much are you eating into rear passenger leg room? I'm not concerned with OE period correctness. I'm basically starting with a junker parts car that some kid painted with an aerosol can and never did maintenance on. No one will be checking if my vins match. It's lucky it's Taiga underneath otherwise I'd have parted it long ago.
  8. What did you use for the vertical legs? Did you need to gusset them?
  9. And both are a small enough starting diameter to adapt for EV1 injectors?
  10. I'm having trouble finding good photos of how people have gone about mounting the E30 sport seats to the 2002 floor. I'm 6'3" so not interested in the "stacked" approach of putting the E30 base on top of the 2002 rails. I don't have the headroom luxury. I'm interested in seeing how people are getting around the floor hump and what they're chopping off from the stock car.
  11. Great, thanks for the feedback. I'll get the new boots and grease on there. So what are the "too far gone" wear characteristics to look for during a visual inspection like this where I don't know the part history? Also, is only one side heat treated? Is the axel directional because of that? I don't have it in front of me but I thought it was symmetrical.
  12. Would Bosch EV1 or EV6 style injectors plug into the Kugelfischer injector ports on a late tii / early E21 lower intake manifold? I'm working on a custom boosted EFI setup and it'd be great to be able to use this.
