Mr.2 with a k20 and turbo. A buddy has one, it started off as a stock engine fun car, then he turbo'd it and it was really really really fun with 400hp, now hes over 800hp and doesnt do turns in it anymore. It's a fucking rocket.

Slip ring and work inquiry

Hello all,

My slip ring for my 1991 e30 vert went sproing the other night. I installed a non-airbag wheel on CL for cheap as a temp fix. I just need the slip ring, and my airbag wheel is mint, so I am looking for an inexpensive fix if anyone has one in the bin. I live in West Linn, and work by PDX, so I can pick up wherever.

Second inquiry is to see if there is any interest for out of shop repair. I keep the car as a toy, and do most of the light duty repair myself. Will be doing rotors and pads next weekend, etc.

I was interested in having a PNW r3v'r do more serious work, as my free time is limited with work and family. Potential projects include guibo replacement.

I only have 3k in the car and don't want it to turn into a money pit, and am happy with most things stock. Pacific Motorsports did my post-purchase inspection and noted the guibo. They seem a good shop, but intermediate pricing between dealer and small time shop.

Any direction to a individual/small shop in the area would be appreciated. Thank you all for the sage advice in the past. R3v is a fantastic resource.

...and...spam masubi are the BEST! Before Portland, I just finished up a four year working vacation on Oahu. I still miss walking into 7eleven and grabbing the best musubi on the island. Well...maybe Da Kitchen in Maui with the fried masubi is better.


Got reply.
Thanks, good to go.
M

Hey now, I haven't really done anything to that car, besides buy a MS box and have AJ come install it. My silver 330is and the mtech cabrio on the other hand...money fucking pit.
