  1. I've used Pro tools, jd2 and my current vertical hydraulic one. They all have their merits. I'd buy whatever has good access to dies that you'll be wanting to use

    Good to hear that the balancers forked out a little.

    What's going into the build?

    Group buy, E30 sump guard

    Still keen
  5. I'd be keen to help with installing the rebuild kit. I understand getting the manifolds off is really the hard bit
  6. 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

    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.

    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

    m5x sump flange CAD file

    Sorry read that wrong. I've just got the flange drawn up. E32 & e34 sumps are still around. Good for a custom extended sump

    m5x sump flange CAD file

    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
  14. Is a manual conversion really that hard to find in NZ?

    Insurance cover for track day?

    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.
