which fuel pump did you replace? did you change the fuel filter (cleaning this is not a good idea)? vacuum leaks will cause this as well, and did you check the fuel pressure regulator? and the last piece of advice, check the air flow meter. could be goin out.

now whats this pay if i find? how much we talkin

The E30 is what all actual driving enthusiasts are after. It's an unpretentious machine, quietly capable of spectacular feats of handling. It's light, simple design is rugged enough to run against $400k rally cars, but on the street it' communicative chassis delights even the most disinterested driver. It really is one of the world's ultimate driving machines
