Default omghai

I'm an e30 guy who finally made the jump to the dark side. I picked up a high mileage 95 M off craiglist in charlotte, nc which had been modded for "tall drivers only" At 6'6" I was skeptical that it would blend, but it did

since my ownership i've tossed on some 325ix wheels, picked up many random parts (na6 cluster with oil pressure gauge, nb1 brake booster/MC, wilwood proportioning valve, lc2 etc etc) and swapped in a VVT motor a few weekends ago.

Couple pics:

my old bp

wrangler-iata ftw

anyone know where this connector goes white & black wire, comes off starter/alternator harness, I think.



anyways- happy to be here

Julien

Welcome to the forum.

It looks like you have been very busy. Did you use a stock ECU for the swap or did you go aftermarket?

Currently stock but thinking about going ms3. I've never built one before but it seems like an interesting project.
