  1. Got some seats , just test fitting everything to get the pedals and column where I want it. Next task is going to be getting a rack in the car.
  2. Added 2x3 rocker rails, tied them into the rear subframe, getting ready for the cage next!
  3. After trying to save the steering gearbox setup to avoid fitting a rack I finally caved.....I cut it all off , reinforced the front subframe , cut a section out to clearance the oil pan and now I finally have the motor and trans fitting up nicely!
  4. Got the powertrain all mocked up along with the tunnel and firewall cut. Plan on giving its first trip in this weekend.
  5. Well I ordered the “2002 Underground” rear end kit and it should be here next week. In the mean time I have been Seam welding the engine bay, and this weekend got around to making a rear tower brace with a trunk located battery mount. I saw something similar to this in my google searches and liked the layout .
  6. Thanks all i will keep you updated on my progress.
  7. Ken, New to this site and the 2002, I have created a thread on here detailing my build. I am looking for a rear end solution, i have been directed you way and just saw this underground kit. Could you lease shoot me a message i would like to discuss details and figure out how to get one. ( when i tried sending you a message here it wouldn't let me still getting familiar with the site.) Also do you have a website or all sales through here ? Thanks
  8. First off, Thanks to all for the help.... Dudeland: I haven't run across this setup yet can you offer me some more details? bianchini: What power level are you at? If you had to do it all again would you steer clear of the CA tuned setup? looking for my best "bolt in" option here. Or little fab work necessary. RollCage- I will look into the Ronin auto works setup as well as the Kirk option. I fitted a 12 point "pre bent" jegster cage in a chevette last year and was pleasantly surprised with some modifications how tight it fit. ( Lots of tube notching though hahah) Update: This past weekend was able to go through the endless boxes of parts and was pleasantly surprised at all the parts i had that i though i was going to need to track down. With that said there is a lot of parts i have that i wont be using (mostly every interior piece) along with a few engine bay parts and odds and ends. Looks like whoever had it before me tore down the motor and put all the parts in a box. Yesterday i took delivery of the transmission i will be using for the car an AISIN AR5 after initial fit-up looks like firewall and tunnel will both need some modification.
  9. Hello Everyone ! This is something I have wanted to do for a while now and finally found a clean shell to start with ! I have a 2.0 liter gm ecotec engine mated with an Ar-5 transmission from a Saturn sky ready for the car. I want to do a few other things before I get started with that . The firs two thing I want to do is 1) get a rear end in the car ,now I’m not super familiar with all the BMW stuff yet but I’m learning and that where I’m hoping you can help. What my current plan is , get a “CA tuned” monster rear end kit and run a E30 lsd . The max power for this car will be Around 400hp.... the second thing I’m working on is getting a cage in the car. Has anyone on here put in any of the pre vent kits out there I think I saw two one by auto-power maybe ? How do they fit? If any one can’t point me in the right direction here looking for a weld in option . See pics below of my shop and the car . Thanks everyone !
