Re: Conforti chip...thumbs up

From what I recall, the Dinan and Conforti are pretty much the same. They also benefit from upgrading to an A100 (IIRC) exhaust gear out of the S14.

Re: S38 M6 US spec converting to Euro headers

The pipes fit perfectly to the engine, and the smaller shields are find. However, the one big existing heat shield CANNOT be wedged back into place when the pipes are mounted. You end up with a couple of options. Also, before starting your install, you absolutely have to break loose the motor mounts...

Re: Rear ABS Sensors!! Oh MY!

That's a great piece of info. Phillip. All the sensors are getting harder to find, and more expensive to boot. I wonder if we might want to make a sticky with exactly this kind of unique supplier information in the parts for sale section. Maybe we could submit a vendor who has that one or two hard t...

My 87 came to me with a Conforti, so I have never known it to run anything but awesome. When I added Euro headers, and an A100 exhaust gear, the seat-o-the-pants dyno. said it picked a little more power, and pulls smoother/harder when it gets above 3500 RPM. Although, the end result is not coming al...

Re: My New '87 M6

That is a beautiful example with what looks like a pristine original dash. Treat the leather on that dash regularly and ALWAYS use a sunshade. Protect that leather, or it WILL shrink up on you.

Re: Bmw sound system speakers upgrade help

You can greatly improve sound from the rear if you fab up a new base plate from some pressboard, and install a pair of 6X9's instead. Practically any brand will give you WAY more bottom end. I am partial to Pioneer for 6X9's. To make things much nicer, also replace your door tweeters with some good ...

Re: rear upper cam housing cover plate gasket

To get that cover off I use regular old combination wrenches, and patience. Although you can try a ratcheting box end wrench on it. I think maybe those ratchet wrenches that allow a bolt to pass clean through could work as well.

Re: rear upper cam housing cover plate gasket

Yes, the cam tray rear cover gasket can be replaced without major teardown. You will need to remove the valve cover, and have some small combination, or box end wrenches to work with. There is practically no space to work back there, but with the right assortment of very small tools, you can get tha...

Re: Electric winch?

Unless the lift is a fixed 2, or 4 post model, you can't rely on it as an anchor. My car was sitting on smooth ground, and the scissor lift started moving when I tested pulling directly against it. Maybe if you tack an anchor block of some kind in front of the lift, you could rely on the weight to j...
