  1. I'd be keen to help with installing the rebuild kit. I understand getting the manifolds off is really the hard bit
  2. You could fix it properly with a kit like this. http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-335I-135I-535I-N54-Mitsubishi-TD03-Wastegate-Rattle-Flapper-Rebuild-Kit-/111856454441 Fairly expensive process if you're paying someone to do it though
  3. What software did you draw up the pcbs in. Interested to see how much current it actually draws.
  4. oh the b30 Sorry but you have definitely been scammed
  5. when is dyno day? ethanol? I have some wilwood 6 pots and 4 pots if you need more brake options
  6. Love the idea. Fitup and design of the reinforcement plates looks good. I don't think the cheap gasless mig is doing you any favors though. What are your plans for the flex fuel? Gates barricade hose or Teflon braid? I went with gates. So far I'm really happy with it. Using it with an push lock fittings is a real bitch Which ecu are you going to run? I can recommend the deustchworks fuel pumps. Can't even tell I've got an aftermarket pump.
  7. Thought I should point it out Have you considered getting some upgraded cams? I may have an option for you that will have a decent kw/$ return
  8. Sorry read that wrong. I've just got the flange drawn up. E32 & e34 sumps are still around. Good for a custom extended sump
  9. Strangely I do. Never had one cut out though. Do you want a dxf or dwg? I could also get it cut for you at a fairly decent price too
  10. Is a manual conversion really that hard to find in NZ?
  11. I'd be interested to know what the conditions and price are of this. I recently rented a car for a track day that had up to a $20,000 excess. It did cover damage to the track as well.
  12. I drink double brown. When do you need them
  13. where do you get the ethanol compatible fuel hose?
  14. I've imported my fair share of car parts(mostly new), but never sent stuff back and never in bulk. Thanks Jon. LCL is definitely what I need
  15. I'm off to Europe soon for a bit of a trip. Was hoping while I was there that I could pick up some desirable parts eg gearboxes (5 speed zf or 6 speed) and maybe a motor (something that starts with an s) Not trying to make a business out of it. Just parts for myself and some mates Where is the best place to look for parts? Who is recommended for shipping larger items back? Can I get in on part of a container What do I need to know about bringing the parts back? taxes etc Any pointers would be appreciated
