It's almost like you saw us through your crystal ball!! Truth be told, John removed his engine. Like that's it, he jacked up the hoist after Rich and I finished undoing everything, haha. Then we made him take the pressure plate and flywheel off while we drank beer and shot the shit with Doogie, davericher, and Redrocket... and discussed vacuum cleaner purchases.

We kicked it's ass though. We were ready to pull the engine after about 3 hours of work, then waited for the hoist to arrive.

We liked you better when you didn't have internet

You're doing a fine job. Once you have all your accessories bolted back on, and all your new parts, I'll be there to put it all back together. Don't you worry!

yes we love you, and yes Scott and I FEAR the fact that you realize how fast we can change a boat anchor and that I have 3 or 4 of them and that after every track weekend we will be called upon.

needless to say I bought a coupe last night, so cross fingers its a good shell and lets start the E30 race team!

How many max guys does it take to swap John's M20?.... apparently the whole E30 subforum

How many max guys does it take to lug an M42 out of a car sitting on a driveway with no engine hoist?.... Just me an Scott








How long does it take for an E30 build thread to get way off topic on max?..... just a few hours

If you remember my thread, it took me about 40 hours but I did it all in a week. That involved installing all new poly bushings and shortening the housings.
