Easy when heads are in your hands.
But pain in the ass when heads are assembled to block and engine sit in e30 engine bay.

Now i set basic clearanse to 0,3mm. Correct clearanse to cams = 0,25mm
But i dont know how much clearanse will change when i tight heads to block. In s14 clearanse change aprox. 0.02-0,03 when head assembled to block.

Are you having carbon engine dress up parts made up? Are you using the s62 ITBs? What's your plan for throttle linkage? Cable or flyby wire?

FBW is my plan. Motec handle it well.
S62 actuator+ e39 e-gas pedal. Which is basically bolt on to e30.

I make modified s62 plenum from carbon. OEM plenum is heavy and full of useless pipes/hose outputs.

Currently i'm buildin new ABS loom for MK60 ABS system.
If someone have interested MK60 ABS setup, have a look :https://www.facebook.com/bmwm3motorsport?fref=ts
That is best Place to get it.

Today i get engine mount bushings.
Those are direct copy from e30 M3 GR-A engine mounts.
Very clever desing.



In this pic you can see original desing.
