It is indeed quite the journey. Bunch of other priorities to take care of, this gets leftover time and resources ;)

Exhaust starting to take shape:











X pipe is coming behind the cats, then a middle box, then back box. Cutout valves will be in front of cats.

Have you show this build on the e30 forums? The kids on r3vlimited would go batsh#t crazy for this.
Yup on some of them.

Some more exhaust fab pics. Was at his shop today and we did some final adjustments to the exhaust and exact tip location. OCD got the better of me/us and we will shorten one tip so it's more flush with the bumper.

Some more progress. Cooling system more or less done. Ended up moving radiator in front of the front clip and we modified a radiator so it´s got 2 seperate parts, upper/lower as the oem S85 system has. That way we can use the oem hoses/clips on the engine side. Then put a big electric fan behind the rad:











Then fitting the intakes, using the Eventuri ones:







So now the fab work is pretty much done it´s time to strip the car and blast the shell & fix some rust.
