I'm not changing anything guys. I'll track down the vibration first. Some seems in the clutch and some seems to be in the TT.

Probably normal. Both my '82 and '93 catch really early.

I'd change the tranny mount first. My guess is the engine MM were changed when the transplant was done, which has exacerbated tired tranny mounts.

Take care of Leon, Brendan. I'm sure you will.

No mods.

No Mods. Simply a consistent upkeep of ever-increasing goodness.

I doubt that the engine mounts got changed but have no idea since I was not there.

For a year at least. Or whenever I finish my 928 before that. This allows me to sell my bmw and move some money around because I no longer need the 2k in parts I bought for THAT car.
