Probably time I post up an update
So, what's new... Lot's of buying a used car enjoyment :P
I ordered a set of treated (not coated
) rod bearings for when i do the engine overhaul: BMW M3 Forum.com (E30 M3 | E36 M3 | E46 M3 | E92 M3 | F80/X) - View Single Post - Bimmerworld’s S54 Treated Rod Bearing Upgrade Kit
I got a set of RG-Rs that I'm going to use for summer wheels. 18", silver, I'll be running them with BMW center caps most likely. 18 lbs front, 20 lbs rear, 8000 ton forged, correct offsets, clear the BBK, and I think a good color for the paint color. The stock wheels are still on the car, but now with a set of Michelin PA4s in 245 square.
Went to install some laser interceptors and discovered this interesting sensor...
Traced it back to the source... ecu... WTF, this is the AIT sensor? Crap, that's not good for the engine AT ALL. Also, why would someone wire it directly to the ecu instead of repurposing the MAF wiring if they were already doing an Alpha N conversion? Ug ug ug. Oh well, fixed now...
So, drilled a hole in the bottom of the filter housing and mounted that properly (no pic).
But then, when I took the intake housing out... what is this!??!
Looks like some mouse action. Cleaned it up, replaced filter. Little jerks.
While I was in there the secondary air pump was staring me down...
So it had to die
Then the aux wash tank locked at me in a funny (leaky) way...
So I killed it too
Installed some ultimate cup holders (bad pic)
and some USB power for on the go charging that can still be folded away when not in use...
And it looks like i forgot to take of pics of the final LI install. I'll grab some in the morning.
