If you just make a wood box out of 1x1s and plywood and use those expanding foam packets inside it will be fine. Then you can ship it with anyone, freight shippers, etc.

I had one shipped in one of those plastic tubs from costco, taped the openings of the diff and filled the tub with expanding foam, ziptied the lid closed.

Iíve had a bunch shipped to me, and most often, itís just a box in a box in a box. Itís not like the UPS is going to fuck up a diff. Maybe drop it on their toe, but unless itís got the Z3 finned cover WGAF...

ECS has a good sale on z3m diff covers. I bought one today.

My white e30 is getting the turbo 24v out of my nephews faux M3 now!

If I had something shipped to me like that I would poo in my pants

Kooglewerks ships spoilers in some wood crates that are pretty cool, but not nearly that level of crazy.

Iíd frame the box and probably throw the E30 parts in the scrap bin.

So I've replaced my O2 sensor and spark plugs but my car still runs really rich at full throttle (quite a bit of black smoke at full throttle), anyone have any ideas on how i should diagnose it? Its a stock m20b25, stock afm, stock injectors, and a stock chip.

Has your AFM anti-tamper cap for the adjustment screw been removed? If so, throw the AFM away, those are never to be messed with.

Test and/or replace your blue coolant temperature sensor, too.

Sorry I should've given more background info,

I recently installed 17# injectors and the miller maf conversion on my e30, I then flooded my engine so rich that the bearings went kaput. I chalked it up to miller being shitty

so I swapped my motor out this past weekend and converted everything back to stock. I used everything from the "new" motor besides the tps sensor, O2 sensor (which is new), plugs (which are new), and the afm (which shouldnt be the problem because it ran rich with the miller maf setup?).

I guess a better question would be...
1. can a bad tps cause the car to run rich at full throttle?
2. how would one test to see if the fuel return line is plugged?
