    Personally I'm not a fan of grill badging. Kinda distracts from the natural looks of the car. I feel like a single red squiggly looking S after the Z3 would look cool, and make people wonder what it's about

    Thanks, the BMW uses "traction fluid" and it's hoses are that size, the consensus in the SC thread was it is too restrictive. Thanks to Viktor, I got this one:

    I removed the grille badge, I took a drive this morning, and the car is a beast & joy to drive, the only issue is the passenger side suspension is squeaking, I have picked it up 5x verified nothing is loose, cannot localize the noise.

    Hey man love your build thread ! I think it was like 2 years ago but do you still have the part numbers for the transmission thermostat and lines for the tundra transmission cooler upgrade that you did?

    Here you go!

    Lines I just did hoses, I later got the metal lines from a dealer, they are on a shelf somewhere.

    Thanks! Figured this is a necessary upgrade for pulling an rv up I-17 in the summer . Did yours have the atf cooler coil under the ac/ condenser originally . That’s what my ‘12 has currently…

    Curious to see how well it works for you! I've only seen videos of them being used.

    1 is at the differential side of the driver lower control arm pivot, 2 at the outside, 3 at the shock. 4 is at the inner side of the pass lower control arm, 5 is at the differential side of the passenger lower control arm.

    It's helpful, I thought the bulk was on the passenger side.

    That seemed pretty definitive! Have you swapped the sensors around to see if the noise follows the sensor or the part?

    Drove the BMW in 110 degrees to the pool store a mile away, temp elevated slightly so I opened the hood & the lever was super hot because the filter for the SC oil landed right under it so I stole a page from Rey's book. & while I was there.....

    Nope, not messing with hoods. I like the way the car looks.

    Took a drive, wish it wasn't so damn hot.

    Talked to the shop yesterday, dropping the tree off to have the 2.2 SC pulley, Mishimoto radiator, 160 degree thermostat & silicon hoses Toyota red & the downpipes installed at 8:30.

    It's dropped. the original master key, that worked after the computer swap is not starting the truck, had to go back in the BMW with keys, the valet works. WTF? Also, after starting with the valet key, the old master started it but it died in a few seconds.

    I'll have to reprogram it when I get the truck back.



    Manager has a nice 1st gen.

    Apparently, I forgot to post this yesterday...

    Got it back, only the radiator & cooling parts in, he had an emergency after wasting an hour not getting the 2.3 pulley off. Said it is too small for the puller I got the original off with & he broke his puller trying.

    I'll bring the truck back Saturday for the cats.

    It was idling for 20 minutes before I left, running almost 20 degrees cooler, the thermostat that was there looked new.

    OMFG!!! noise canceling headphones are amazing! I turned on the noise cancelation & it was like the machines left!!!

    I was using them to hear the TV as it had to be sooooo fucking loud otherwise & had to turn the volume on the headphones down after turning noise cancellation on.

    Got the tree back, crisis averted.

    Initial diagnosis.

    While it was in the air I was looking around, found my exhaust was cracked. They welded it.
