Gentlemen, (Rtc). . .

Today i present to you, an absolute gem. Rarest of the rare. A time capsule, to the days when us older lads learned to wrench. Simpler days, when cars were fun. wonderful memories for us, perhaps memories for you later. Amazing quality, legendary tuning potential.

Wranglers are fun and hold their value surprisingly well. They are also clunky as fawk. Fun during the summer and very useful in New England winters

Ferrari engine in a Toyota? -Fail.
On so many levels.
What a waste of a Toyota. . baldy[1].gif

Got a chuckle out of that.
Thanks GF. satisfied.gif

Dammit! Imma go on a rant. How the fvck can he think this is a good idea?????

Nothing "JDM" about it, or supercar about it. Here is why:
1. Throwing an engine with EXTREMELY short maintenance intervals, into a car from a brand know for it's reliability. ?????
2. Why wouldn't you rotate the intake manifold, even billet machining a spacer, so you can keep it all in front of the windshield?
3.they gave zero thought to the build before starting, in regards to balance, fitment, functionality, and performance.
4. You want to stick monster horsepower in an 86? You have 3 options.
-1uz fe. A 4 liter, quad cam v8. Low compression. Loves turbo's.
-3uz fe. Same, only larger capacity, more torque.

But You wanna build a car that moves like it's powered by dark matter???

-1gz fe . 5 liter Toyota V12 quad cam. Low hp. Torque you can't believe. Strap a single very large turbo on one? ?
You can't handle the truth!!!! Neither can a stock driveline. lol8[1].gif
1,000hp, is not out of the question.
With the vvt system. Cams, valves, capacity. And toyota parts compatability? At half the price of the Ferrari engine when fully built? He done fucked up.

4. Trying to front mount a rear mounted engine. Doable. But more headaches than it's worth.
Just no.

5. Their fabrication sucks. Not blaming the guys doing the work. But they are being given a a job to do by a driver, not a builder.

6. This is what happens when a car gets built to order by a dude who has no idea of the work involved.

Edit: nice try GF, we still want to know what happened to your car. lurker[1].gif

I'd like to find a build thread for this thing "BMW Bavaria (1972) .... Running a V8 S62 with M5 six speed, 993 turbo brakes, trick suspension, one off magnesium BBS wheels."

What's the deal with the repair center and your car GF?

post #23740 of 26351
We're all good. My worst fears were not realized. They're tossing in extra body work repairs on my car for the hassle I've been through.

Top notch work they do. Just fucking slow as hell.
post #23741 of 26351

Glad to hear its all working out for you even if they are really slow!  I actually passed by them last weekend on our way home from Lime Rock.

Did you have anything else that needed to be fixed?

Yeah. I asked them to recondition all my wheels as they came with minor curb rash. Also getting them fm fix some small issues with my front bumper. PO drilled holes into them to attach the aftermarket lip it came with but that broke off from hitting an ice chunk back in April.

They're going above and beyond to keep me happy, so I'm in a good spot now. Still sucks that I won't have had my car for two months, but it should be coming back to me in much better shape than when I bought it.

You're a glutton for mental miserary, but you come through in the end. cheers.gif

Did you just increase your wait time to a year?

I think you should buy a fun car while you wait and sell it when you get your bimmer back. It'll be next summer by then.
