    look at darrens turbo thread. Use 540i A/C lines they are much more turbo friendly. He has great pictures of them and how he routed his down pipe.

    be careful not to kink them. The smaller one is easy enough to do but the thicker one is hard. It is steel and doesn't bend easily without kinking it. Even with a pipe bender. The e34 540 ones will help but even then, it will be close especially if you do a 3in DP. That said you may have more clearance between the fender and the m30 VC, than I have between my fender and the M50 VC.

    TRM Turbo, Hybrid Audio Technologies stereo, S50 Cams, list goes on and on and on...

    VC meaning valve cover? yeah i was thinking of having a DP made that comes off the turbo over laps the valve cover a bit then go down.. it seems like the most simple thing to do.

    and i wont be done by the 14TH sorry man. between this, the girlfriend , the girlfriends miata , and the dogs i STAY broke. lol

    BUT i have some BADASS plans like where my wastegate dump will be located. and some other little goodies

    yeah I meant the head and the valve cover. Doing turbos on these cars you need to get creative with some things as you know. I can't tell from the pics but you also might have more room to route the down pipe between the fender and the a/c lines. You'll get it!

    Bent the A/C lines using a old trick my dad showed me involving 2 MASSIVE box wrenches.. i used a 14" long 24MM and a 14" long 26MM linked them together and bent them out of the way.. quite nifty

    some one recommend me a nice steering wheel.. something that has suede, wood would be nice as well. something that wouldnt look out of place in a 7 series.

    dude it takes alot of money and time to have a super clean build..



    ARP studs finally arrived.. $212 for them on ebay.. sealed in original packaging..


    DSC_1599 by TheStatic7, on Flickr

    this may seem like a noob thing but i just noticed this

    what does it mean? (markings on piston)


    DSC_1597 by TheStatic7, on Flickr

    i assume it means the bore and manufacturer?

    who needs a filter? its behind a headlight, thatll filter out most of the small birds/woodland critters/kids. 5mall5nail5 runs filterless, and has made great power without it. and hasnt killed his motor, which is a plus.
