I'd forgotten you had a vert, Franklyn.

Today on the BMW Farm, we put the intake manifold/injectors/new coolant and vacuum hoses back on the 633. Still waiting for the cold start injector, fuel pressure regulator, and idle control valve from Pelican. I really like Pelican, but lately they've gotten where just about every order we make is held up because they have to order some piddly little part from BMW to fill the order. Last time it was two body trim mounting screws and plastic plugs that go over them (less than $10 worth of parts) that held up an almost $900 order. This time it was the $1.25 throttle body to manifold gasket! I said screw that, and made one, then called them and said scratch that part, send the dang order! A dime holding up a dollar.
