Nice!

The silicon boot for the throttle body. Where did you get it from?

Dang they have lots of nice stuff.
You wouldn't happen to remember the diameter of the throttle body side of the silicon hose do you?

Thanks for your help

excellent. If not, I might be able to to wrap a wire around the throttle body and measure it, then find a diameter of a circle with the same measurement for the circumference.

By memory it should be around 3.5", but don't trust me, measure it!  :)

Married the g260. I will be trying to do a write up for the m42/g260.

Gauge came in yesterday! Justrack sells these on e30tech. Amazing work that man does.

Some progress




A few to show how it sits with the 240 tranny mount. not sure how i want to modify this one to work or if im just going to build a new one. when i remember to bring my camera with me ill get some good pictures of how the linkage sits. Its about an inch too long and shifted to the right about 3 inches.





And because i got excited and took a bunch of pictures of my car
