definely not an S5 replica. mine is a lot more aligned to one and i still wouldnt call it that. I have the same kit and Type 2 wheels on mine.

just curious, why go through all that bother of swapping in a V8 and choosing the 3.0L? If it had to be a V8 i would have taken the alloy block M62B44 and run that on M60B40 management. another 80 odd HP for no extra work.

Not sure where these belong but I got the call about noon yesterday. The computer was off, the ride was ON!

It was overcast, snowing, and freaking cold on the 8 miles of trail in and out. In the trees, with it snowing, it was magical. Pic of the big green pack horse, trailer, spare sled and FOG. Then the good stuff, back country CO with a foot of fluffy fresh

This^ makes me want to head out and take some pics.
Chat is cool. Always passed through there on my way to Nashville.

I have to do a road trip soon. Or at least when it warms up.

Yeah I bought a cheap fuji at the local pawn shop after my old palm treo conked out.
I'm now learning to use photoshop. So I'll be officially ready for a amature photoshoot within the next couple weeks or so.

Yes the family and I are headed back south in july if not sooner. (can't wait )

Sounds like a plan. I may do a round robin for I have to check out wes in Nashville, you in Chat and catch up with boogie, transporter, Jbe, e34diy and maylene in Atlanta.

We'll make it happen

Thank you! I don't know if it will ever be "finished" because there will always be something else to do to it. Not sure about the Mpars either... I thought about selling them, but most people would not be willing to pay what I would want for them ($1200)
I guess that means that I will be keeping them.
