      I remember him posting about this before. It does not have a crank sensor. It's a 1.6L AFX.

      That looks like a wiring nightmare. I would have just swapped the whole harness instead of splicing like that. That hacked wiring is certainly the problem. If the fuel pump is coming on with no key...

      I molded it into the blank or ABS cover that is normally there. Saw someone else do something similar, but not molded, which was my original plan. I ended up cutting out a little too much of the...

      Probably not, but you can try. You should be able to get some cheap at any hardware store. Depending on the brand, there is typically a small groove in the shaft and the circlip is the only thing...

      Bill Schimmel sells built 2.9L blocks for around $3500 if you provide core. Other suppliers sell for like $4500 with timing components and you don't need to provide a core. Eurospec and BBM still...

      ARP recommends re-torquing after an initial engine run after install. They used to state that the undercuts didn't require re-torquing because the stretch is more equalized. Wouldn't hurt to check...

      If you're not mechanically inclined, I'd just take the head to a machine shop and have them do the work. If you don't have a valve spring compressor, you're not going to be able to do the work...

      Found some legit pics from the e36 kit that used to be sold. I think whoever runs http://www.eurobadgez.com used to sell them under a different name, so they may have old stock of the brackets and...

      Pretty sure that's a photoshop. Regardless, it's not really done right anyway cause if it's not fake, it's clearly plastic or something filling the gap (at least on pass side, driver's side looks...

      You'd have to fabricate a custom grill and brackets at least unless you're swapping them into a Mk3 housing. I've seen people run E36 headlights back in the day and someone used to sell a...

      I wouldn't block anything as a long term solution either. Just mentioned it for troubleshooting. It may get you by for the winter if you absolutely do not want to rip the dash out to fix the...

      Your last post makes it sure sound like it's cause fresh air is coming in while driving and the flap/foam on your heater box is non-existent. Combination of that and air in the system, which sounds...

      Those are the correct ones for a 4-door. If you have a 2-Door, you will need some of these too for the ends as they are different than the two standard clips already linked to and a little shorter....

      All of your hoses should really feel the same temperature wise unless there is air trapped in the system or other crap blocking passages. If I were you I'd just do a full flush and properly burp it....

      Possible, but doubt it since people delete it all the time and still have heat. It definitely helps circulate the coolant, but I think it's more for reducing heat when the car is shut off. If coolant...

      Yes, but if that doesn't help then it's probably your heater core or possibly air bubbles in cooling system. I'd recommend a full flush with G12 if you haven't done one in a while.

      Yes, that's it. You have to remove the entire dash to replace it unfortunately. Without it, it will allow cold air in. Another option is to block off the fresh air inlet under the rain try.
