*Update*

Received the TC Kline D/A Coilover System with 500F/500R Springs. As you can see they are pretty weathered. So I called and talked to Phil. He said its ok to use brake cleaner to clean up the shocks and see does it loosen the adj screw on the shocks.



Well I broke them down and PB blasted them I will leave them like this for a few days until I scotch brite them with a finishing pad (Very Very Fine) to hopefully bring back some of the finish.



At this time, I decided to rebuild the Ground Control M3 Street Camber Plates that came with the kit.













I order new polys from GC for $21 bux shipped. I have also decided I will not be using these but use the Vorshlag Camber Plates that I have for the Non-m

are you sending those back to TC Kline to get them revalved?

Oh, BMW_Knight said his rear axle width did not change when he swapped in the M3 rear axle. Curious where you saw it change by doing that?

If I can get the Adj Screws at the bottom of each shocks to move. I will not send them in. As they don't leak and work fine. I am changing up the spring combo tho. Thinking about 450/700 setup as I do have a system (audio) in the back. Also, I will need to get the hardware for the Rear Adj for the Springs.

When swapping the M3 rear in there is a change but its very minimal. When I break mine down I will measure and fine out where its wider/longer at.

Well my hard work paid off! All adjustment screws work well. All it needed was some PB Blaster, Brake Cleaner and some Anti-Seize.

All Cleaned up



Anti-Seize Applied



Rear Shocks put back together



Front Shocks for the Most Part

Not the place for this, find the buyer/seller feedback forum. Posts removed, keep this on topic.

Decided to slap in the 42lbs injectors to fix my minor lean issues. Until I can throw in my Bosch Motorsports 60lbs injectors and get the car tune for it



Where did my rear axle go?



Order a HPF Rear Sub-Frame Kit. Can't wait to get this and get them installed. Thanks KIRK! Also, there is a few other parts I am waiting on as well. Sux not being a millionaire or this car be done long time ago...

*update*

Entire Rear End has been removed and waiting on HPF SubFrame Kit to arrive.


Oversize Damper and Underdrive Waterpump Pulley...


Testing Belt Fitment to see they will clear with no issues...


I do have an issue with the Damper hitting the Pulley on the A/C Tensioner and Limited Tensioning movement. I will have to figure out away for it to clear and get the right size belt for fitment...

15months, no dyno? Never seen the car run? What gives? 10 Injector set ups? I haven't followed this thread much in the last 6 months? Confused...

We design our products to be functional that way you can still enjoy to luxury of having air condition and OEM cooling system.

Now putting a smaller pulley kit on a Supercharger will help Generate some power.
NVM i found out why your car doesn't run, take those under drive pulleys off...

I wouldn't call them under-drive pulleys when you factor in the size of the crank pulley. It's a 6.8" OD custom ATI piece, where the OEM crank pulley is 5.5". In fact, I don't think I've ever seen a bigger crank pulley on an M54...even Jorge Saca's custom SC setup in El Salvador was smaller. (Let me see if I can dig up a picture of that)

Come on Adam, the water pump pulley doesn't matter either way. (unless it's a fitment issue) I was just poking some fun at Viral. We all know why this car isn't running, it's not the transmission, or under drive pulleys. The real info that should be shared here. Buy a stand alone, source the hardware. A monkey can wire up a MS, cheap. Just saying..
