    Ladies and germs, this won't be so much a build thread, but more of something to keep track of what I've done to my newly acquired ms6.

    Picked up a 2006 wwp ms6 yesterday, had 157k on the clock. Rust free from FL, needs vvt, a PS pump, and some body work (if i feel like getting the body work fixed)

    The goal once the vvt and PS pump are done, is to replace my 2010 mz3 with the ms6 as a daily driver.

    Probably will only add a Hpfp upgrade and an AP and tune for 93 and e30 with the stock intake and exhaust.

    The mz3 is too boring. I might sell it soon once I get the 6 sorted


    Anyways First casualty today. Clutch pedal got stuck to the floor. Has to be hydraulic, as the pedal is already welded and reinforced lol

    Will replace the slave and go from there 0206191302.jpg 0206191344_HDR.jpg 0206191350a_HDR.jpg

    I like to live as I see fit.
    I can rent a car at no cost thru work at any time, so I'm really not too worried about a car that's only gonna get AP and Hpfp, will never be launched and spend 90% of its life on the highway, and the other 10% idling lol

    I very well may. I got 28.9 mpg hand calculated on the first tank. Maybe I'll have Mark give me a lean burn cruise for this like he has done on my gen 1 ms3.
