Yeah but he'll have a sick e30. Besides, small penises are still penises and will still make girls cry.

Thanks! Moving fast because it already happened!

The thread is now about 3 months behind. A LOT happened in those three months

Thanks guys!

Ahhhhh you noticed the o-rings. Well, I'm not boosting it now. But I had the foresight to realize that I will probably want to in the future, so I o-ringed it. If/when boost happens, I can sneak the ARPs in there without pulling the head.

You may think your welds suck, but IMO, all things considered they look great.

When you posted the very first pic of the klutch SL1's on your car, I was like "should be lower" but it looks perfect in the towtruck pic later on. I'm thinking about raising my car now...

Thanks for the kind words.

Actually, I think I did lower is just a bit after I first installed them. But yea, I'm really happy wit the ride height. Between the offset and the look of the tires/wheels I think it's sitting perfectly. Just barely enough ground clearance too.

Here are photos of the shop I took the block and head to. Superior Automotive. They specialize in american muscle, but they do plenty of machine work for other vehicles as well. I was told they see BMW blocks quite often and apparently they had several S65s there for boring and sleeving.








Here is their "clean room" where they assemble motors. It was inspiring to say the least.





Anyway, I had the old 2.8 block from my e36 bored to S52 spec. It was also thermally cleaned, blasted and shot peened and new expansion plugs installed. The block looks AMAZING. So glad I decided to do this.


Here are the pistons from the old 2.8 after running AA stage 2 SC without a tune..... (long story - summary: didn't realize the tune didn't load, drove it too much before the issue was figured out, broke ring landings... I'm getting upset just remembering that fiasco)




O-ringing the block (this is not the block I ended up using, though the process and pictures are the same - this block is for sale). Basically I got a good deal on a block, pistons, rods, crank, bearings, rings etc. So I o-ringed the block and then decided I should have had a more thorough "cleaning" done, however, the blasting and shot peening would ruin the block surface + bores and require a re-hone, resurface and cutting o-rings again. SO I decided to start fresh again with the old m52 block and put the other block for sale. Plus, I liked the idea of breathing new life into the original block from my first car.


The isky tool is fantastic. Makes this process idiot proof. The first block took me maybe 2 hours. The second time, it took not more than an hour.













Started working on the harness. It's not bad at all if you spend time with the e36 and e30 ETMs. I spent probably 30 hours pouring over both of them until I had traced and understood every single line and its function on paper. Then I did the same thing physically, from the connector to the ECU pin to verify I was working with the correct wires.




Painted some parts










All the stuff lined up in the garage.







More to come.
