buy e36 M3 or e46 m3. better steering, LSD, 200-400lb less in stock form, cheaper parts (e36).

pick the right tools for the job, not wrong tools that need to be modified to do the job right.
The first thing on cooling to address is the radiator and NOT oil cooler first, then the radiator. This has been proven time after time.
