    If I remember correctly David at one time bought injectors from Five-O or something like that, they canbe found on ebay. I wish I had CC/flow numbers and ohm of the stock injectors. E38 prototype I only have a set of MSD injectors left and those might be to big(I'll look for the flow numbers and...

    I've been waiting for this day since the start of the Grand-Am series, lets just hope Dinan doesn't get caught cheating again.:hihi: The S62 will be swapped out for the new M3 S65 later.

    Can I suggest that you grab a good paint pen and mark the camshaft to cam cap so you align it up easier? I grab two or three colors so I can also mark the chain. I mark everything at TDC then move it 45degree so all the valves miss the pistons if cams should turn.

    I use Cometic gaskets all the time, you just need to clean all the surfaces and spray the gasket with copper coat sealer.

    David, I'm coming out to Concord on the 14th and will be there till the 19th, sadly I don't believe I can get away for any fun. What I noticed on the trac bars, they seem to keep the whole rear suspension located better. I need to take a underside picture of my car, I the "Y" right after the...

    Here in the USA you can buy the gold reflective film from C&R radiators. It will stick to most surfaces if its cleaned of oil, it has good sticky stuff on the backside.

    David, The contacts are removed from the rear by sliding thin blade into the clip. I've made thin blades by smashing a paperclip when I don't have my tool. Also one of the things I do when using wiggins clamps is to put a quality ty-rap around it so it doesn't unclip.

    OK bringing up this topic again, read this and watch the videos. Toyota’s SMART teams defused a potentially damaging media report of unintended acceleration in a Toyota vehicle near San Francisco. The initial, highly-speculative report of this event aired on KGO-TV, the ABC affiliate in San...

    David, Don't waste your time with the Evans coolant, I won't get into it but I will state this. It didn't make the engine run any better just made it hotter which also made the oil temp higher. I have three gallons of the R left if anyone wants to try it themself. I'm a big fighter for no...

    hiha but lets not forget Massachusetts has its share, still not as bad as Calif. The City of San Jaun Capistrano also banned In&Out from opening a new one next to a McD's, Arbys, Jack in the Box, Del Taco and a Carls Jr(Hardees). They said there was already enough fat supppliers on the two...

    I agree with you on the Dinan headers but having the pipes on cyl 1 and 5 almost double the length of 4 and 8 isn't any better?

    Thats intresting. On another OT, did any of you know that the late 90s 740/540 and maybe even the rest of the E39 family(Excluding the M5) have issuses with the cruise control going to full throttle? My 540 has had the cruise disconnected for over 5 years now after it started to speedup and...

    So far with the four Prius my nieghbors have, we have been able to kill the engine/motor with pressing on the brakes. We even tried to shift to neutral above 65mph, and it works you have to push the lever over and hold it. Which shouldn't be hard to do if your using a phone with the other hand...
