    I'm pretty sure the new engine you've put in is a M62. I'm willing to be proved wrong though!

    Hi Just had a read through your project some very good fab work. I am in the process of building my e34 drift car and am very interested in the setup you had in your e34. The rear coilovers seem straight forward. The fronts i have a few questions. The sleeve you machined up the coilover fits into i presume this is threaded what size and type of thread did you use or how did you match the htread on the existing coilovers? also is there much adjustment in the front and rear can it go much lower than you have in the photos? I am looking for a low setup. Sorry for all the questions looking forward to your reply.

    As the ABS mudguards broadened immediately after the first 4 tires in the last drift training, something more robust had to be done:

    Amazing progress and I like your driving. That skid pan is a dream :D

    I have pretty much the same car, just a touring body. did you just cut the bodywork to fit those guards or some work is needed in the wheel well? I rolled my fenders as much as I could but tires still rub a lot.
