Gentlemen,tomorrow is the day!Will drop my oil pan on the beast and replace my rob bearings.Some may say I'm paranoid,but this seems to be the only thing that really kills our engines.So I just change them on my 80K miles beast with stock RPM limit.
Also it was not that expensive(less than 500$ for parts) and it is worth to me rather than having to buy a new engine.
Will update with pics and maybe a short first starting video as soon as work is done.
Thanks to PHakes for the rod clearence data he sent me!
Picked up all my parts from the dealer today,so here are the first pics....sorry, crappy pics due to mobile camera...
2001 ///M5 - SOLD
Eisenmann Sport | Supersprint headers | SuperSprint X-pipe | Ground Control | Stoptech ST-40 front brakes | Powerchip | Rogue 280mm clutch | JB Racing lightweight flywheel | Rogue short shift | Dinan rear Swaybar | OEM 9.5" all around with Star Specs | Cosmo Racing CAI | Opened brake ducts
Thanks guys for the motivating words!
The job itself does not bother me at all,am only a bit scared what I might find(wear on crank,stuff in oil pan,...).And the plan is to drive home with the car in the evening
Not yet in the mood for that stuff,have to take out my tranny soon due to a leaking rear main sealing and also have to do diff sealing.Will throw these things in when I'm on it,I guess.But the we wil see.First the mechanical issues sorted out,then time for the performance parts.And the winter is long here in the north...
