This is what I am assuming as well. We will see when I pull it apart
I keep having 'cargasms' when I see these pics....too much info?
Great thread. Two comments -- I have the Coupe King exhaust on my e9, and they incorporate a Maganaflow resonator. I would recommend that.
As to brakes, I just rebuilt my master, rear balancer, all four calipers and added stainless steel lines. I am of the view that the stock BMW brakes are excellent. I would forego the Willwoods and put the money into tires or something else.
I am either going to add a Magnaflow resonator, or a Vibrant. I like both brands, and have had good experiences with both.
As far as the brakes go, for $1100 including new hubs, rotors, stainless lines, calipers, rotors, etc the Ireland Engineering big brake kit seems like a no brainer to me. The factory brakes on the car are good for a 1972, but I almost never leave anything alone while I am in there if I can make it better. 300mm rotors and Wilwood superlite calipers will improve the stopping power greatly. For now this car is on the backburner, I have a few new land rovers and the 911 that are getting all of my attention currently.
I have the Willwood setup for my car, but haven't installed it yet. For the total cost, it actually seems like a good deal. It includes pads, hubs, lines, calipers, rotors...essentially everything. For coilovers, a shop called CATuned (from Sacramento) is now building a coilover setup for the car. It may be worth reaching out to them for pricing, specs, etc.
