While waiting for a HUGE shipment from ECS.. I kept thinking about what I was going to do about the famous brake booster.. At first, the booster was gonna be moved over 1/2 inch blah blah. After researching, I found out that a AUDI A4 brake booster could be used by shortening the push rod and modifying the E30 clevis. Good news for me is that my buddy had just what I needed.. Mint booster with a MC and the res. Also went to local scrap yard and found this beautiful VDO gauges in a Audi Quattro. They came surrounded by a wood panel. That will be changed. Got all three for 5$. As soon as the ECS shipment arrives, pictures will follow....

have you tried putting the engine in the car? My brother did, and the oem headers were hitting the subframe. He needed to get the longtubes to make it fit...

Good progress though! should be a solid engine

I heard that the long tubes hit the subframe :/ The oem headers dont seem long enough to cause a problem..

Are the M50 and M52 headers exactly the same?

Really eh? Cuz the flange on Chris' M50 manifold was hitting his subframe.... maybe it's because he was running AKG mounts that lowered the engine?

Im planning on using AKG mounts too but im not sure if the M50 and the M52 headers are the same... If the flange does touch the subframe, ill either cut it off and make the header a one piece with the downpipe. If not ill just buy the long tubes

Im on E28 525i mounts and i have enough room to mate a flange to the manifold and gracefully arch it down along the firewall/transtunnel.

ECS has been waiting for my UUC DSSR so every thing has been delayed for shipping. Their expected ship date is for tomorrow (June 1) Hope they are correct. Anyway, like Ive said before, once that comes in, I'll have a large amount of photos to share. For now, I picked up an amazing deal on AKG bushings. The guy started a 318IS project but decided to give up on it so put this for sale... I picked them up right away. Drove about 90 mins to meet him but well worth the drive..Enjoy and stay tuned!

Looking at your subframe bushings, I bought the same ones. But I guess my sticker fell off in shipping. I had no clue what way to install them so I put them upside down(smaller side up top) and when I saw this I panicked and called AGK. He said it didn't matter. It will help you offset your camber if you raise the subframe aprox 5mm.

Just I'm not sure how the diff will line up now. Haven't installed that yet.

Sorry the pic made you panic. I dont think you'd have a problem with 5mm. Best of luck to you and let me know how it goes.

Well the ECS shipment arrived and got a lot of shift related parts with a few drive shaft parts..
Shifter Carrier
M Oil Cap
Magnetic Drain Plug
Fan Delete Nut
Teflon Bushings
Dust Covers
E34 Throttle Cable





Still waiting for the UUC DSSR which is back ordered and will be sent to me ASAP
Also got a E30 CSB and my buddy made me a Engine Ground. Ignore the transmission mounts. I got them but then decided to get AKG mounts soon.


After seeing one of my buddies valve cover on his VR6, I took mine off and painted it with a VHT High Heat Wrinkle. I really like the out come..



As she sits right now
