    And to add insult to injury the exhaust fell apart finally :smash:

    So got a replacement rear section, bolted it all up after a bit of wrestling with it in the snow... to find the mid box has a crack in it :wack: Ah well, out with the welder next week and weld it up, no baffles in it.

    Though i did run it up with the backbox off.. oh what a noise :D :D :D

    Even with the new one on, it sounds better! :wack:

    Just a bit of news, ordered up a brand new LUK Clutch to replace the dodgy one and also got my good flywheel in at the machine shop for refacing and lightening :D

    Stock flywheel is about 8kg+, and from what research i've done and people have mentioned, i can have it taken to 6kg safely with it being rebalanced.

    Should liven the old BMW up a bit :D

    Haha :wack:

    Still waiting on the flywheel to come back from machining. I had to spend today doing the cambelt since i was 5000 miles overdue according to Haynes (stands to reason, has been 4 years since i had it done and grease life in sealed bearings is about that)

    So spent this morning replacing all that, and also invested in one of Speedtouch's (From E30Zone) M20B20 'Wild' chips for £30....
    I was a bit doubting on this but the feedback said otherwise...









    :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Anyone who has a E30 with the original MTronic Bosch injection system it's well worth it!

    ... Godamned that car's a completely new animal. So smooth at the lower revs and how it picks up through the revs is completely different. It used to have a 'hiccup' at 4000rpm which is now GONE and it's off like a bloody rocket to boot considering the mid box has no baffles left :p and the ITG panel filter, it's a fair bit more fun to drive! :D :D :D

    I've got 1/4 mile times (best was a 17.6 second) and a rolling road print out (117bhp with 126ft/lb) prior to the chip, I'll post up results when i get back to university and hopefully get it on the rollers again, I'm quite interested to see the results on paper :thumbs:

    I've only got the chip in today! :wack: I'll find out on the next tankful what it's like, before the chip i did get 280-300miles to the tank (Milton Keynes to North Luton and back, M1 / back roads) So will find out what it does in a month

    Till then my rev counter's rather amusing cause it does this
    revcounter.

    :wack: Not quite past 7k but it does burry itself well into the redzone :thumbs:

    Fang, If you think yours is comical, you should come for a spin in mine when it's done! don't suppose you have a spare diff lying round? Need to get one welded up.

    ok Flywheel and clutch are in and had a couple of hundred miles put on them to bed in, the lighter fly has really sharpened the throttle and pickup.

    And all booked in for the 3rd June DWYB :D Will hopfully have some good pictures from it.
