      Guys any pointers to where I could learn about engine workings, rebuilding them and such? I am reading some m42 threads right now, but they definitely require some prior knowledge. Maybe there's a good book I could buy on amazon or something?

      I haven't done anything like that, thinking about starting with building an M42 this summer so that if I fuck it up it's not too bad.

            I have a spare pan. Just need to pick Stevo iX's brain and have some welding done. Strength in the iX drivetrain has been proven with 500+ HP M20 iX's. Hopes and dreams. :(

              I picked up the E36 Bentley manual definitely step in the right direction, only thing that sucks is the intake manifold isnt covered aka "Mess under the intake" but it isn't a big deal cause that's covered thoroughly on the forums and through part diagrams. Plus if you m/s50/52 you can use the same book.

                  I sent him a pm asking about what he needs in order to come up. Such as a plane ticket, a place to stay, work and supplies. After that ill see if I want the task of setting this up or not. If not ill pass the info to someone with more time and experience.

                              Didn't know you were flipping the whitey. It all makes sense now.
