Default Re: 96 M3 Boston Green Coupe - Couldn't Resist

It was shifter-Bushings and Guibo day. I forgot to order a new *****-clip, so I couldn't finish that job. Another order. Then I ordered 2 more Giubos. They'll get used on a 36M or 46M eventually. The one pictured had 150,000 miles on it. It drove fine, but I won't put that back on the car. It's probably worse inside.

Darn that cold wind lately. I want a 4-stall garage, amongst many other things that won't happen soon.

The air box baffle came today too, for $10. Thanks Danny (danuts85@yahoo.com) in Sacramento at German-BMW. The PO threw it away saying he gained 1HPower.
I've read many "De-Baffle" threads. Basically, folks claim it adds 1HPower or takes away as many as 6HPower. No one cares enough to do before-and-after dynos. My experience is that I hear more engine intake noise. No thanks.
