*Le Sigh..



I have no regrets moving on from it, although I would have loved to see it finished. It would have been 8 years in July, lots of memories, lots of lessons, lots of friends from here and all over, and most importantly my job.

I'll likely pop up here time to time but I won't be buying another Subaru as a toy.

To anyone that followed along, it was always a pleasure. Onto the next.

Sad, yes. A breath of fresh air is how I'm looking at it. A new chapter.

The first things that sold were all the forced induction components. I considered keeping it and just tossing the 5.3 naturally aspirated but I felt that I wouldn't be pleased with the end result since it wasn't what I wanted originally. Now that it's gone I know I made the righ decision.

Hmm I am on 7 years. I'll hit 8 before I turn a key
I don't think I've ever seen or heard of you owning a running a project. I'll cross my fingers.

All is well and everything but the steering wheel and the seatbelts have been sold/parted. Funny enough I was 5-600 from breaking even on the LS build so no hard feelings with the car. It's time for something new now.

Any plans for it?
So it is a 99' making it a bit of a bastard in the BMW world. They were transitioning from the e36 ( which is what this is) to the e46 chassis so they ran out of parts for complete M3 cars so they made what I have which is a parts bin M3 otherwise known as a 328is M-sport. It is a factory slick top too making it ultra rare I guess. The only thing it was not ordered with was the s52, mirrors, wheels, and LSD.

I did S52 cams, a 3.15 LSD with a Porsche clutch pack upgrade, clutch delay valve delete, ASC delete, rear suitcase muffler delete, E46 M3 front seats, E46 Brembos/rotors, M3 sway bars, Bilstein shocks, H&R springs and an off the shelf tune this past summer. I plan to do wheels, shifter bushings, and a few minor paint corrections this spring but that is it for the near future. It is a blast to drive the way it is and Im holding off on my foxbody project until I get a house.
