  1. Thanks so much for tutorial! Looks very nice. I will be curious to see if the vinyl stays attached and/or shrinks over time....
  2. I just installed IE Street / Track header. I was able to get it in from below using jack stands and by unbolting the trailing link and tie rod end on the exhaust side. Didn't have to do anything with the motor mounts. M
  3. I used the Aardvark panels. Good quality. I had to open up the holes along the top very slightly so that the star pronged tabs of the metal door/glass rub thingy holder seated all the way against the wood before I bent them back over.
  4. And a quick search turns up a post with the same cast of characters. 😉
  5. Do tell. Is this a bolt-in? What part #. I assume ND is Nippon Denso?
  6. Makes total sense. Glad I didn't go with my first plan which was to mount it in the header. Sounds like 10-12" downstream from the header, as long as I make sure there are no leaks at any joints, is the way to go.
  7. Yah - Install manual says at least 15deg off horizontal to prevent condensation (as you said). I was thinking - great, looks like there is room to mount it vertically - but the instructions say don't mount perfectly vertically either because it may overheat! So - that leaves somewhere between 10 and 80 degrees. I think if I can mount it in the adapter after the header I can get it in at about 20deg.
  8. Does anyone have pics of the area immediately after the header of their IE install? I'm trying to figure out how the bend in the "flange adapter" after the header should be oriented and where the support bracket off the transmission should attach. I've got a 245 Getrag installed. I've been communicating with IE, but they don't have any pics readily available. I was hoping to get a jump on things and get the AFR sensor bung welded in to the adapter before the rest of the exhaust arrives, but I probably need to wait and rough everything in to make the final decision? Thanks! Mark
  9. Sad news indeed. Just texted my Air Force buddy. RUSH was the soundtrack to our first days of freedom after basic training and tech school while stationed in Dover Delaware. Fly by Night Neal....
  10. Finished getting the exhaust manifold & studs out in preparation for an IE header/exhaust install. Mocked everything in place so I can get a bung welded in for AFR sensor. Has anyone mounted in the "flange adapter" vs. the actual header? I just don't seem to have enough room to mount the sensor on the header and get the angle greater than 10deg from horizontal. I think I will need to get the option AEM stainless bung to do install in the stainless flange adapter? I also partially installed the new MOMO California wheel I got for Christmas. I'm just waiting on a BMW horn button. Anyone want a well worn E21 wheel? Lastly I'm waiting on parts from the Czech Republic for my dual Weber DCOE 40 install!
  11. Just emailed Corbeau to send me swatches of their two tan colors for the Sport seat. They responded quickly and said they'd send them right out.
  12. I will be following this saga with great interest. I've got stock seats in my '73 but they are starting to spring some leaks.
  13. I have had at least 3 or 4 good laughs on separate days when seeing this!!!
  14. I am really interested in this air filter, but.... This bolts directly to the face of the Weber carbs, correct? Is there any data on how this setup compares to velocity stacks? I have heard that you tune the length of your velocity stacks like you tune your primary jets, emulsion tubes, etc. If it's only a % or two HP change then no big deal, but I'm really curious. Thx Mark
