New Parts!

Sorry been busy with life for a bit... time for an update at last. Now...Let the part list begin

1. Pure Stage 2 DDs... Simple choice really, no ethanol in my area, no mass production RHD ST kits, street car 95%
31.jpg

32.jpg


2. Southbend Stage 3 Endurance Clutch... Everyone's getting a SPEC, so I thought I'd try something different and see if it's better

3. MFactory SM Flywheel... proven to work
36.jpg

37.jpg


4. MFactory LSD, Fully Rebuilt in the US and shipped over to Hong Kong. Welded gear, no one can remove it local. Might as well pay extra and have someone experienced to do it all. To be honest, I wanted a WaveTrac but I can't be fucked to find someone to offer a one stop solution (source a big diff, rebuild it, fit the LSD and send it over) at a reasonable price so this is the next best thing.

5. Turner Motorsports 60A Engine Mounts... Originally I was going to get ADE Mounts but since the owner thinks I want to buy the mounts and clone it for profit (Hong Kong is in China), I don't want to deal with him.

40.jpg


6. Alu Power Steering Pulley... Might as well do it since the engine is coming out of the car
41.jpg


7. ECS Rear Caliper Guide Pin Upgrade... my rear calipers are dragging once it gets hot enough so might as well rebuilt them
42.jpg


8. New Index 12 Injectors... some of my injectors are leaking so time to replace
43.jpg


9. PR Coils

10. PR Stage 2 LPFP

11. VRSF Stock location Inlets... because RHD

12. Brake and Clutch Pedal Delrin Bushings

13. Clark Performance Fabrication Diff Brace

I've left out lots of small pieces like the brass clutch pivot pin.. shitloads of new bolts... front and rear crank seals but those aren't worth mentioning.

Somehow a spare tire fell off a truck and I couldn't stop in time so it took out my bumper.

Replaced it and....Heres where things start to go downhill. Long story short...
Had a small accident with another car, left car at garage, whole front end came out which took two months, mechanic stopped working on my car for some reason, he disappeared and stopped answering my calls 1 month ago, I got pissed and took everything to another garage.

Originally I was going to order a Seibon OEM Style Carbon Hood but... since my ex-mechanic walked off with the ~2k USD I left with him for ordering parts... I guess I will pick up a used hood for the time being...

Hood bent, Headlight casing, Bumper, Grill, Front Support Cracked

Fuck this is heavy...

No better time for a picture than this

So this is why my clutch slips sometimes...

PR Coils Installed

This was a major pain in the ass. Trying to move a car in pieces took two whole fucking days. I had to get a truck to fit all the big pieces in and put the small pieces in another car. Had to put power to the car to unlock steering wheel but everytime I open the door, LPFP primes shoots gasoline everywhere.

Let's hope my car will get worked on again soon...

Finally some work done...

I was 4th in line when I originally dropped my car off...Mechanic got vacated when he was finishing up the 3rd car... had to move to a new place with my car...
53.jpg


some progress...i bought them the tools to do front and rear crankseal but they fucked it up so they have to redo it later... some bolts disappeared during the move but luckily the local bmw parts store has them in stock

54.jpg


Subframe out, engine resting on it for the time being
Waiting to for my outlet pipe to be rewelded to remove the RHD restriction
55.jpg


Probably won't be able to drive the car yet once its done since my driver's license has been suspended for three months.

One thing im surprised no one else mentioned but have you tried different toe settings. Our cars toe out on braking and when suspension loads up sp slight toe in or for track 0 really Is most aggressive should go which should avoid that wandering disconnected feel. The additional dynamic camber from your new arms and your bushings at like 1/16th in should feel great on street if very flat roads or track could go 0 but that will affect stability if roads aren't perfect.

yea i have tried 0 toe and -0.1 degree toe out
toe out on braking + toe in on suspension load up -> negligible as things balance themselves out
with static toe out car i trade off some turn in response but at least it doesnt understeer mid corner which was what happened when i tried my friends' car with static toe in... it felt horrible

i dont see any reason why anyone would want toe in on the front if they want to drive fast except for more stability/confidence...at the expense of cornering speed

full disclosure: i drive like a dick on the streets and i dont dd the car
