Did my Tstat and replaced my coolant. Gaskets were so damn brittle and barely anyone had any on stock. Used a paper gasket which is a temporary fix. Going to either RMEuro or AutohausAZ to find the best one for the cheapest price :biggrin: for the Thermostat Housing. Not sure if my temp gauge should be reading the middle indicator even with coolant in there. Bled the system properly thanks to Jess and James for the write up.

Coolant was so dark green it was unbelievable how my car was still running. My cousin NEVER took care of this car and I'm trying to get it to where I want it. So much fun :biggrin: My brother in-law helped me out with the drive on ramps and tools. Now I need to invest in more tools and some ramps.

Next up is new tires, brakes, and an oil change.

went to a meet, I also shadowlined the trim on the E30 with electrical tape, it doesn't look as bad as you'd think :lol:

I let mine rest after a perfect drive to SoCal and back... The new motor was a joy to drive, especially on the open road (I-5), and the car performed flawlessly... I made it from the Rose bowl to my door in exactly 5 hours (370 miles), including 1 pitstop for gas. A perfect cruise at 85-90mph for the most part, and the car begged to go faster...

Now the fuel trim is even farther off!
