The o ring is only available if you buy the mounting plate from the dealer, I'm sure you can measure it up and find one. The size is not the same as the oil cooler to mount plate also.

I've used mine with both pre 06/2000 with the round BMW adapter and post 06/2000 into obdII with no issues at all. I also soldered two pins 7-8 and 1-2.

Exhaust System Suggestions For 323CI

The cat and header are the restrictive part, if you buy a sweet borla or any brand and bolt it on the stock header it's not going to add hp. If your doing it for sound then you won't get a decent...

Exhaust System Suggestions For 323CI

So you are running headers with no cats? What is your o2 setup? Anything that is true dual all the way would be an upgrade. I would check out rogue engineering.

Control arm options

+1, the bolts for the bushing do not squash or touch the bushing at all so it doesn't matter

I had Karlyn tie rods in a BMW and they didn't last a year, you could feel the cheapness holding the part in the hand. I wouldn't recommend parts that kill you if it fails.

It's going to be a hand full for sure, especially with some mild boost and megasquirt.

Planning a header with a rear mount turbo, I don't have a good header so if anybody has one let me know. Also before anyone bashes the remote turbo setup I'm doing it simply for balance.

Using a getrag 260, m20 light flywheel and 6puck clutch. I'm going to get a thick headgasket to lower the compression with ARP headstuds.

The front and rear toe are altered with the flex of the bushings and actually help you turn better on streets with bumps.

You loose geometry for street driving using hard bushings. Normally race bushings drive on butter smooth race tracks and work great.

^ What he said, if you got the scanner from xcar360 for example, you need to get the software from there site because the software from pasoft will not work.

It could be the intake manifold gasket. When you floor it does it sound like you have a turbo?

Brake bleeding question

Motive euro power bleeder is the only way I do it, and the only way I did it without any issues.
