$315 for a weekend is a total steal. Sounds like you're going to have an exciting weekend! Hopefully you'll shoot some video?

Ah, my car doesn't have heated washer jets, so that would explain why I've never seen that part before! :)

I don't think he actually went through with welding it.

Regardless, I wouldn't bother with this swap. The 318 is slow, and adding an aggressive diff ratio will just result in it being slow AND a...

You won't have to change the drive shaft if you're only changing the differential. The only time you have to change the drive shaft is when you are swapping from an auto trans to manual.

As far as...

Yep, I love my OBX. Very high quality materials and it only weighs about 27lbs. Hard to beat at any price, let alone the $200 shipped rate they sold for.

Would also need a different differential with the correct gears for the manual trans. It ends up being a lot of stuff.

Yeah, I hear you. That said, some brakes come like that from the factory, so I don't consider it rice or unsightly.

I could be wrong, but I thought zinc was silver in color, not gold.

If you're building a stroker, do not buy your DME programming until you have totally settled on your configuration. Also, OBD2 cars from 1996+ do not use chips. The DME has to be reflashed.

I think my dad's car just has the older ExtremeContact DWS, so maybe the DWS 06 is better. Seems to get pretty good reviews by the look of it.

Oh man, I'll be so jealous of you if you buy those. They're quite rare in that fitment, and I love them. They'll fit perfectly, as they are the exact same dimensions as 96-99 M3 wheels.

What offset are the 17" Style 32s? Those came in a few different flavors depending on whether they came from a Z3 or E39.
