Re: 1984 633CSi Rises again!

Looks like your number plate has claimed a few road kills. If it's legal in Cal I would ditch it completely and replace with vinyl numbers on your new spoiler lip.

Re: Good things begin on Jan. 12, 2009!!

I replaced my heater core as a pre-emptive strike while the engine was out last year. It's not a job I would ever want to do again and took 3 weekends, but not overly difficult. I managed to do this only removing seats, centre console, glove box and lower dash panel, and the fan covers on engine sid...

Re: UCA Bushes - re-educate me, please!

If the bushes shown in the photo are E31 then I believe they do need to be turned down. I went through all this year replacing my poly bushes which had permanently deformed, in the end installed: Lower Control Arms: (pair) Lemforder Aluminium - 31-12-1-139-987-M69 and 31-12-1-139-988-M69 Upper Contr...

Re: M30B35 Head Stud Kit

I bought my head bolts a few years back, even though I only rebuilt my engine last year. When it came time I investigated ARP studs also, but stayed with the bolts due to coming across the same issue. It's an issue (or non issue) that seems to generate a lot of debate. Here's more http://www.mye28.c...

Re: 633CSi Turbo - Not a Callaway Anymore

Good skills, that really is some achievement - you obviously know what you're doing.
Curious though why you put the 5 series engine back in the 6, given is write-off .

Re: Adding a battery charger connection inside the fuel filler door

Not a good idea introducing a potential ignition source to where fuel vapours are likely to be present. I would think of another method. If you're concerned you might forget to disconnect a cables coming out the boot, park a yellow sponge or similar on your drivers side windscreen wiper every time y...

Re: Took one for the team...

Now you now what we're up against down the bottom of the world.

Add shipping, customs charges plus boarder tax and all BMW parts are still way cheaper ex US or Germany than we can buy locally

You guys are so spoiled with choice and free ground shipping

I've got 3M film on all 4 lights and fogs, applied by mobile Tech - I had all the lights out at the time. Chrome rings removed and when installed help retain the edges.

These are what I put in my 84/85 M30B34:
Ford 19lb Injectors - 0280155710 - F6VE (Bosch) https://www.fiveomotorsport.com/0280155 ... ion-3-19lb

Their part numbers have now changed I think, so check.

Re: Fuel Pump Question

Not that long ago my in-line pump started leaking quite badly so replaced that and shortly after, when the engine was out replaced the lift pump. I purchased from Wallothnesch and it didn't come with the tank gasket, so might pay to check this first. (They did apologise and quickly shipped one out a...

Re: Strut seat bearing sizing discrepancies question

After rebuilding suspension and replacing top mounts, things do settle down to a lower height than what you initially get - a good 6mm or so in my case. May take a few months / miles.
Note there are also 9 and 3mm spring perch rubbers which give you further options.

Re: injectors

Research Five-O-Motorsport - they are good to deal with. I installed what they commonly call the "Mustang 19lb Injectors", for exactly the same reasoning you are asking. These have a 4-hole disc nozzle for better fuel atomisation and flow slightly more fuel. If running the standard AFM this will nee...
