It's a really nice write up. I didn't understand half of it, but it has one thing that most guides don't have. LOTS of pictures. And usually if a guide doesn't have pictures, I'll always screw something up.

5-speed auto is only available in the M3 but can be retrofitted to the other chassis’ if its something the user would prefer over manual.
Can you give me more info on this? This is the first time I've heard of this, and I'm now really interested. If it's OT, go ahead and send it through pm.

No worries on that.

This is the OBD-I conversion/installation, and mine is the later OBD-II which retains EWS, and all the (CARB required) emissions scanning controls. Several versions of the OBD-I conversion were/are available on-line. (and by the way, they cost more than my booklet does!)

If you live in CA, CT, ME and a long list of other states in the very near future, you need to retain the factory original engine management system. In other words, if it was originally made OBD-II, it must stay OBD-II or you will fail testing, and could have the car taken from you. In CT, if they fail your emissions, you cannot renew your registration, and therefore can't drive the car on the road once registration expires!

By the way BlueBimma, EXCELLENT thread!

PS I heard of a new rule (possibly law but not confirmed) in CT that requires that if you do an engine swap, the exact same engine is used. In other words, my car, even though it has a newer engine in place of the factory one, would be in violation because it is not the same exact factory-installed engine. I don't know if this will carry to other states, be made law (if it isn't already) or what, but just thought I'd share that tidbit... In CA as far as I know, the engine can be newer than the car, but must meet the newer engine's emission requirements. That seems to not be the case in this instance...

There are still quite a few things im missing and would like to cover. Once i get the rest of the info together, itll be updated.
