    Took a 3 hour study break tonight and got a whole lot done. I'm hoping to go back tomorrow and finally finish it up. There is nothing difficult left, so it shouldn't take more than a few hours.


    Connecting the driveshaft and fixing the shifter that was incorrectly installed... lol

    Decided to purchase an oil cooler since I don't feel like taking it all back apart to put one on later.

    I went with the C&R oil cooler from bimmerworld, euro oil filter housing, euro oil filter housing banjo bolt, AN line adaptor, and Russell 10 AN lines and hardware. I considered going with the VAC kit or piecing one together on my own, since it would be much cheaper, but I absolutely hate the idea of putting an oil cooler in front of the radiator. I know a lot of track guys do it, and sure its better than no oil cooler, but its a terrible location to place it. Also, the C&R oil cooler is aluminum, which is much better than the commonly used brass exchangers.

    BIG UPDATE:

    Thanks to Jeremy5000 and Bimmerzone
    , my MCS double adjustable coilovers, Hyperco 2.25" springs, Ground Control rear shock mounts, Ground Control rear articulating spring perches, Ground Control bumpsteer tie rods, and reinforcement plates finally came in! 2014 is going to be a great year with big things to come. I already have more on the way. I plan on competing in TTB this year, and I'm about to have the car right where I want it.

    If anyone needs any type of part, I would definitely recommend bimmerzone as they were very easy to work with, have the best pricing hands down, and got everything to me in a timely manner.
