Very excited its done, but the driveshaft still needs to be adressed. it is out of balance and shakes like a frightened child whenever there is any kind of load on it. i think i'm gonna get a new one built up for me at driveline services of portland. i also have to make sure the tranny is aligned correctly in the tunnel, may do that tonight...

Also i ended up slamming down the suspension last night so the fronts are tucking along with the rears on an early arch car!!! its so sick lookin. camber is ridiculous right now hahaha. i'll take some pics later on tonight and hopefully have them up tomorrow afternoon when comcast comes to hook us up.

do you have no exhaust backpressure or something, how come it takes so long for the engine RPM to drop?

That has been fixed. the throttle cable bracket was holding the throttle open a little so it wouln't back down. now it is fine

Looking good and sounding good, how high to the revs go on the m30? You could probably just get a tach from a 325 or 318is

i know, i just have to buy one and put it in. my rev limiter is set at 6500rpm on the JC chip but it gets there real quick with the lightweight flywheel.
definitely my favorite mod so far

thanks guys, it's fun. I'm having a slight overheating issue when in traffic cause i can't run a regular fan, it has to be the electric kind. I am going to try to re-bleed the coolant system and see if htat helps...

The car is fun to drive for sure though. with the recent rain though i have found that caution is definitely needed. for example, coming back into the parking lot from lunch i was in second coming around a corner not fast at all. i barely touched the pedal and ended up coming completely around in front of all my coworkers... that sucked.
then two days ago i was on the freeway going to work and was in second at around 40-45 and got on it to get past a big rig, the wheels quickly started spinning out at 45mph@!!!! and i didn't even floor it. back end got a little squirrely and i had to shift and the car sat back down. cool but scary at the same time.

it has ridiculous amounts of torque which is so overkill for this light of a car so i can't even get on it at all when its wet or risk a very fast tailwhip.

i think so far my favorite thing is to get on it in the express lane tunnel. with this exhaust, the car sounds sooooo european and just growls up the revs. i'll have to try to get a good video of it sometime soon.

anywho here are some current pics with the ride height it is at now
