No doubt, the heavy valve train and un rev happy NV engines sure demand the added hot airflow. While I commend swap the effort, that car looks like a turd.

Far from the final product. This one will stay looking like it is, in the meantime i'm going to save money and look for a new shell. The rust issues are just more than i want to deal with. the frame rail under the floor is pretty rusted through which is why I want a new shell, everything else i can deal with/fix.

why would you twincam a **** heap though? surely the rust didnt appear after you put the new engine in!? your just double handling the engine. or did you do it to keep up with steve/myself/other 24Vguys?

Why would I care about you or anyone else on the internet? I don't have to compete with you. I wanted more horsepower, steve knew how to do the swap so I did it. the m20 was on it's way to the sh!tter. Figured replace it with a better motor. I did not notice the frame rail issue til after it was done with. I noticed it when i jacked up on it when i put the coilovers on. Most of the issues were noticed after i bought the car, issues that were known, were not a big deal at all.

I saw the random plate screwed into it, but no signs of it being rusted, you know that.

Your hindsight is spot on.

sorry, my post before that came across as poking a fight didnt mean to! i just wondered why you wouldnt bather to check the car over thouroughly before putting the new engine in. above is fair enough i guess.. but surely you could have picked up a better shell for next to nothing and save yourself all that time and effort i would have thought

Yeah, if I want something it has to be that minute. If i have the funds to do so. On the other hand of it, you steve know that the rear subframe was pretty much rendering the blue car useless. That was the main thing i bitched about. I couldn't get on the gas hard, i couldn't slam gears, even driving like a granny the driveshaft would hit the gas tank. I'm fine with the black car, had I known the issues about it, I might not have gotten it. Even looking over the car, steve would not even have noticed the front wheel well being replaced. The washer tank covered it. He only noticed it when he was running the headlight wires. The front subframe wouldn't have been noticed unless you specifically looked at it, I would have never thought it would rust through (yes i replaced it). I noticed it because i grabbed onto it to pull myself under the car and my finger went into the hole. That was a good time.

I laugh at how stupid low your e30s are. Unusable turds, like mexican e30s. Congrats on the **** box Anstead, looks like what I thought you would make.

You will make it that way because you suck on Steve's wrench. Nice work on the swap, but should have waited for a better e30. And you need to over look the car man. You live in PA and s hit f ucks out there too. I just don't see why Steve wants to do the swap twice

He isn't doing an m50 swap. why would i make it that way for steve? everything i did improved handling. being low was just a fad. ask steve i told him im not going low anymore because it's stupid. i am going for a nice stance when i finish the style 19s.

Good for you, nice to see you saw the light. Scraping is for morons. Got my M50 almost done and now working on a m30 in my DD.
