+juan. Also, for a kilodollar, you may be able to get some www.beigepower.com swag going on, just sayin'. Maybe QSRC to compliment lowering?

I'm getting Konis as my next step, replace the "practically non-existent" Billy Tourings.

We are having a BBQ at my moms place on the Sunday night of the long weekend for sure. And every tbricker is invited (and their significant others/kids). But our week is pretty well open.

Jason let me know when you're free. Maybe we can tackle some vems

Not sure where this guy is going, but I bet it's interesting...



I also like the 'Powered by Recycled Dinosaurs' sticker on the cargo carrier.

That is interesting. Especially the trailer with the posts designed for those floating lanterns?

Well my pistons and rods finally arrived from RSI (ordered in March) and my engine builder moved to another job. I am looking for a machine shop that can balance and assemble my short block that is familiar with our engines. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

It was good meeting you tonight, hopefully I'll make it out next Thursday! Nice downturn tailpipe BTW, that's not stock, is it?

Nice meeting you too, Jesse! As for the tailpipe I believe it is stock however it is drooping low and sorta at a funky angle haha. I need to get it cut off and have a nice pipe welded in its place. Your 740SE was absolutely gorgeous, love your mods!

Sunday evenings are usually occupied for us, but if you folks will be there for a while, we can drop by after 8 or so.

Ok BBQ is Saturday night not Sunday night. Consider this a turbobricks get together. Any turbobricker and significant other welcome. But fire me a pm so I know. Location is by the ikea in coquitlam. Well at the top of the hill behind the big ikea.

Anybody out there have an M46 overdrive unit they'd part with? Mine has a toasted clutch so I'm trying to find one to rebuild and replace it with, but I'm not having much luck with the yards.

Besides, I'd rather buy one with a known history, that i can be more sure of it working.

Got a passport? Got a complete M46 that has a working OD unit on it that you can have for $50. You'll need to pull it, of course. I'm about 90 minutes away from the border. The M45 part of the M46 needs rebuilding. Tends to pop out of 1st gear and crunches going into 4th gear sometimes. But, the OD works nicely. Is in a 1984 245GL with B23F.

It was on the 15th/16th. Sorry for the short notice. I was just out for the Saturday races.

I'll be out of town for the BBQ unfortunately.
