yea, it will go into gear when its off but it bends and bulges taking the path of least resistance rather than push the selector arm forward, must have been perished and let go when I pulled them off the gearbox.

that sounds more like adjustment issues then cable issues. have a pic of the cable? a torn boot shouldn't effect the operation of the cable. it will just let dirt and other things in to gum up the cable.

so i took the car for a good drive today upto a hardpark in tauranga, ive put close to 300km on the new clutch and its starting to scrub in still some chatter but it doesnt feel as bad as the first drive not as much shuddering and noise, have some rattles and some noise on deceleration so will go back under and look over it, the old gearbox code is W5M332NQBK its NOT an e38a rs box from what i can find its a normal 3.545 box and had been run with a 3.909 diff, make an educated guess here that it burnt out the centre diff, will check rear diff now but this swap has got rid of so much vibration its amazing, a whole new car, i know what to look for next time although there are wankers all over with cars doing half ass shit New Zealand has to be one of the worst places.

That blows. Definitely check the rear diff. Should have been checked before swapping new parts in, but you live and learn. Good luck.

right so before i drop my diff oil to check for scum (fingers crossed) i want to get oil to replace the old stuff now i have read and read and read but this has to be one of the most contradicting things out whats good and whats bad, what is good for a plate lsd and whats bad example heavy shockproof or not?

I've always run redline heavyweight shockproof in the tcase and rear diff, no problem.

EDIT>> I just have the std viscuous lsd rear diff though.

Yea I emailed redline, again someone said it was developed for this purpose but will wait and see what the makers of the product say. I will put it in the transfer case though try and absorb a bit of shock from this aggressive clutch

so been a while, car is sitting waiting. starting to stockpile a few things for a build, the plan is to build a second engine.
im no where near any major work just jumping on parts when i see a good price, found a deal for a front case oil pump, it aint oem. heres a link.
click
should i just flag it and go oem or are you safe with an aftermarket front case. its new unused and much cheaper than the above, left over from some guys build

So I got back into it this weekend, now that I have finished my apprenticeship i can put more time and now money (yeah!!!) into the build. This time around I am going to fix a series of leaks, clean up the engine, paint the block, clean up the engine bay (repaint and mild wire tuck), rebuild the front subframe and replace the worn out steering rack. Also by the looks of it one of them crappy ebay BSE kits was used, without the oil groove and that big puk you goop in the front case that leaks, so i ordered the oem parts for a BSE and maybe a new front case. I have seen the results of a stub shaft without the groove and it seized in there and wrecked an oil pump so i could still be up for worse yet. took me six hours (casual with beers in between) to pull the motor. First time without my good mate giving me a hand but it was sweet, labelled most things because I wasn't sure how long it would be out for. This engine hoist was a great purchase just need a bigger shed.

gone in a different direction with my build, going to use an evo 1 or 2g head, sent off to be ported and flow benched. slowly stockpiling parts now and found this for $100





it was rough and covered in flakey red paint after 6 hours of sanding i got it primed and its in good nik, slight scuffing but no dents or warpage and came with all bumper supports, foglights, no broken fixing points. not sure if ill use it on my car yet but for $100 why wouldnt you grab it

i dont know if im going to use it yet man, i put it on the car it fit perfect and looks good, spent hours sanding so wouldnt let it go for $100, either way i may have an evolution spec bumper or AMG bumper for sale soon got to fund these new parts. got my supertech s/s nitrated valves and PAC beehive springs, tit retainers in today. im selling most of my old setup off, have gt2860rs turbo setup, evo 0 intercooler with alloy piping, cyclone intake, evo III exhaust mani, a 4 puck comp clutch kit 2000kms on it etc most stuff probably not worth the expense shipping to states but if interested in anything PM me.

Engine is moving forward faster than I had first aimed for, Evo 1 cylinder head is back all portwork done and assembled with kelford springs, supertech valves and stem seals, gsc revised lifters, evo 8 rockers and kiggly HLA. Have my cams and all my oem parts in including oil pump front case, sensors, gaskets, all new timing covers and almost every oem bolt I could get my hands on.

Have not locked in a rotating assembly yet, have been entertaining the idea of a 2.3L lately but still undecided.
Got a kiggly girdle all my arp hardware, although iv'e been thinking of getting some h11 headstuds. And started buying some new bushings for the underside.
Will post some pics soon but head is nicely wrapped up and clean so want to keep it that way.
cheers for reading.

Thank you both, chassis number is E38A-0002257.
More parts came in grabbed the 3 piece chromoly crossmember from Paul Volk/99gstracer, Its a great piece quality fabrication.
Went with the silver fidanza adjustable cam gears, seems the polish alluminum look may carry on in the engine bay just don't want to over-do it, other than that no big updates plan to buy some rods soon but to stroke or not to stroke???

Got an another parcel today, bought some rods. I am sticking with the original plan of a built 2.0l

These are some serious rods, come with H11 rod bolts and they are a nice piece.

Next is pistons, I have a goal to have this motor built by the end of this year and I am on track with that. After that I will have to slow down and start saving, Me and three mates are going to Japan in 2015 and I want to try and track down parts for chassis over there, should be a great trip cannot wait!

Small update for those that follow, engine is currently at the shop.
Block is machined and all my parts are there ready for assembly bar a headgasket.
I have chopped and changed so many bits and pieces since I first started this build. I went for the kelford tx272 and sold the crowers, pistons I am using the wiseco 10.5:1 e85 piston kit instead of 8.5:1. Sold my magnus smim in favor of the yet to be released 2g evo 1 2 3 magnus cast intake and lots of other misc parts throughout.

Should have the engine back from the shop late August then it can be pieced back together.

My motor is built, I really wanted to assemble this myself but a build of this scale was a bit to much to take on as a first build.
basic specs of the engine
-6 bolt 4g63 block bored to 85.5mm, line honed and decked
-wiseco 1400HD 10.5:1 e85 piston kit 85.5mm
-Crower billet steel I-beam con rods with H11 rod bolts
-eagle 88mm stroke forged crank
-ACL race series big end and main bearings
-kiggly girdle
-ARP main stud kit
-Arp L19 head stud kit
-cometic MLS 1.5mm head gasket

-Evo 1 cylinder head port and polish,valve job, decked and modified to suit 12mm headstuds
-supertech black nitrated valves (standard size)
-supertech bronze valve guides
-supertech valve stem seals
-GSC power division HLA's
-Evo 8 rocker arms
-kiggly HLA oil pressure regulator
-kelford valve springs and titanium retainers
-kelford TX272 cams (degreed)
-hks adjustable cam gears

-hks timing belt
-new oem waterpump, oil pump, cambelt engine mount, timing covers, pulleys, tensioner, bolts and gaskets throughout.
-tilton twin plate clutch and flywheel
-fluidampr

There will be pictures to come but there is not much to see right now its wrapped up. Next step is to send the gearbox away to be inspected and reassembled, buy in the last few items like new engine mounts and alt relocation, rebuild front subframe and depower the steering rack, repaint the engine bay and bolt on the JM fab top mount gtx3582r and magnus v4 2g cast intake manifold.
