        Dropping the diff in the e34 wasnt too bad at all! Learned some lessons for next time though!

        worst part was actually lowering the thing down!

          Most definitely. My M50 put down 175hp at the wheels, but I could feel it was tired as hell, since it had almost 300k when I pulled it out (~270k iirc.) To the best of my knowledge, it had never had a valve cover off it (I'm guessing this to be true, based on the copious amounts of oil all over everything.)

          I have been daily driving the white car for about a week now, and when I went to drive the red car for the last time with the M50, I knew I wouldn't miss it in the slightest. Slow as fuck, compared to the cammed M50! lol

          Won't be putting the S50 in tonight, though. Knock sensors are fucked (explains my intermittent cutting out issue at 6k.) That's ok, though, gives me time to clean everything up all nice like!

                      Hmmm I'm looking for an "I" for now. But when it comes time to put it back in... If I can't get an "I" I'll get a hold of you. Thanks man.

                          I guess that's what 45 minutes with the pressure washer will do!

                          I'm so happy I decided to swap. Getting to do everything right and cleanly makes me all warm inside :D
