    Over all fun car to drive real nice on the highway. Very much looking to get the FMW S362 and VE manifold in the car but must finish E30 first. Roads here range from good to ...... some nicely valved Fortune Auto coils would be quite helpful.

    E36 of course rocks full interior, stereo, AC, etc. and with 250-320 HP (depending on fuel available) scoots along quite nice and actually gets decent fuel economy at 10 KPL city and 11.5 KPL highway.

    I will be sure to keep you posted if i have a chance to Jig that pan/mounts ;)

    **Along with the VE Twin scroll RB turbo manifold and 62mm FMW i'd sure love to hit her with the fender roller again and fit some wider wheels! haha maybe go a bit lower as well :) but before that happens i'll need to get some better adjustment for rear camber.
