    Thanks, cant really say how much it helps, i assume it does something

    Added some parts to match the wing..

    Awesome build. I'm a little curious why all the trouble for a BMW motor when the M104 is just as cheap and easier to install.

    Still very cool.

    Hey, I just stumbled upon this thread. Quick question: do you have any tips for doing suspension on a w201? I'm replacing the suspension on my '93 190e this weekend and then driving it across country. Figured I would ask if you had any little tricks. I picked up some Bilstein shocks, Vogtland springs and some OE strut mounts. Haven't heard the best things about those springs, but keeping this car on a budget. Thanks!

    Well, im runing on cutted oem springs, and those works good. Sounds like you got proper shocks. There is not whole alot "special" things todo in W201 suspension, just make sure all control arms are good and maybe add camber arm on rear suspension. on alignment go for 0.3degrees overall toe in (both axles, this is not what they aim for normally) but will make the car more stable and nicer to drive long way.

    So, Things has happened during spring, and Best pass sofar is 11.149 @ 215kmh(134mph), top speed so far on 1/4 mile is 220.3kmh(137mph)

    Still running on mild boost, from 7 to 20psi depeding on gear, figuring out how to do well on the first 60 and 330feet before turning the car up close to 30psi

    Ok, I did not expect a John Force level of burnout from an 190e

    Sub 10 car ..... in my country, the record for single driven axle is 9.260 @243.24 ..... and that's a bare bone e36 with a 4 link at the back and no glass left (including the windshield). You have a car that you can take on the street and it does sub 10s. Props to you, sir.
