Haha maybe your right... Although I'd still probably pay the tax for a car like that. Cant let tax stop us having our dream cars
A 318is will never compare
I will be fitting an LSD to this car soon. It will be a custom built one from an e30 ratio into an e36 case. Diff is ready to go back together, but I am looking torque and preload specs for a medium case diff. Cant find anything definitive online, and want to make sure I get the gears meshing 100% and the backlash set just right.
Also the clutch was biting high since I got the car, and I've been nursing it to prolong its life till now. I will be changing it soon, and might aswell do an m20 lightened flywheel conversion on it too while im in there. Anyone know who still supplies sachs m20 clutches these days? Though if I cant get one, I'm sure a Luk one will suffice in a car with 30 less HP than what the clutch was intended for.
