    This BAT listing also has some good engine bay shots which I found useful when putting mine back together. Best of luck!
    I know I'm super late, but thanks for the response! The pics you've posted in that BAT listing are great!

    In pic #313 showing the fuel pump, what is the silver thing on the output (towards the engine) of the pump and the black thing on the input (from the fuel tank)? What purpose do they serve?

    In pic 185, what is that floating connector against the firewall near the transmission fluid dipstick with the green and red wires? In pic 187 it's the upper right most connector. And pic 196 barely shows the green and red wires of the connector I'm referring to, on the left side. My 325e has the same connector, and it's not connected to anything.

    Thanks!

    It seems you have to be a member of the BMWCCA to register your car for the show... lame

    Hiccups., I always liked the Frankenstein idea, but foreseen issues is why I straid away from that move. I'm sure you'll get to live HEA once you figure it out.

    Our resident e30 buddy (Chilezen) up there, has done another frankenstein type 24v build and still isn't enjoying his swap to it's full potential because of hiccups.

    Good luck on your choice.

    Shop recomendations, Someday when I have time I will do a Project thread on here but for now I will get to the point of this writing. Last Summer I picked up a 1991 318 Sedan , I call him Cisco. Its a track day car and I intended to use him for that and AX. Unfortunately after one AX and my first time using him I decided to change the oil and found Silver sludge in the oil and some small metal chips in the filter. I could go here about how pissed I am to pay too much for a supposed refreshed engine ( M50 block, S52 head, 1500 miles since refresh before I bought it). the reality is I love the car and the way it drives and I did not check the oil before I made the purchase. The skid plate blocks the oil pan drain.

    I have a oil analysis kit but really what's the point when I know I need the bottom end redone. Here is what I have in mind. S50 or S52 block and rotating assembly with my S52 head and use the stock exhaust and smog equipment to eventually get a BAR sticker. It's Ciscos destiny to be a dual use car.

    I am Inland empire.
