Didnt get a chance to take a peak yet.

Figured I'd wash off the car today and take some pics... two problems... low battery and I forgot to change it back to 5 megapixels from 1

But here goes regardless.

Nice sunset pics for 1 mp, lol

Those are some nice pics. I especially like the ones with the sunset. . Do you have any mods planned for her?

Thanks... really po'd I didnt have my camera set up correctly though lol

Intake (working on it), exhaust (not quite sure what I want yet), some nice rims, slight drop maybe... simple sound system (CD player, good speakers/one 12" sub)... And maybe nitrous, still pondering that one. I've played with superchargers and turbos but never nitrous... it'd be a new fronteir for me lol

But after this engine goes, I'm planning on doing the */c swap. And at that, I'm hoping to have the engine in my hands way before the engine gives up, and for me to be able to do a couple things with it beforehand Lets just say, since I'm a turbo guy.....

You keep on saying engine give up. The only way that engine will "give up" is UIM faliure . Judging by you're vidoes that engine is just getting started with its life. There are some awsome turbo kits available for the series 2 NA.

In that case my question to you is this;

are the exhaust manifolds the same between the SII */C and NA engines? If so a turbo project would get me on the right track... and eventually that sweet sweet */c engine can go in.

Also a random question, is it possible to take all of the */C parts and bolt them onto the NA? I remember reading on another forum two guys fighting... basically one guy said EVERYTHING minus a handful of parts are different and it is impossible to do so... then the other kid said he was a moron and that they're almost identical minus forged pistons/rods/crank and better flowing heads. So whats the deal?
