      well, Turner Motorsports has dropped the ball again. Once they figured out the piston ordeal I was told I would be getting the pistons directly from Wiseco. They didnt tell me that Wiseco wouldnt be shipping the pistons out until the 28th :curse:

          Damn, par for the course it seems. It'll be a sweet unique build when done though. Definitely worth it. Good luck man.

                It's pretty easy once you get the timing case/front crank bolt off. Just make sure you have the cam lock tools and that cyl 1 is at TDC. I suggest buying an E36 Bentley.

                  Highly unlikely to have the engine assembled, installed and running in two weeks. Ive decided Im going to keep plugging away on the other stuff I need to do. Luckily my UUC 10* twisted DSSR arrived today so that put out some of the flames of the fire haha. Im like a little kid when I get new parts

                    You will love it, guaranteed, the best mod I have done to my car in recent years. Makes shifting nice and tight (heh)

                        +1 DSSR made shifting that much more enjoyable. Been awhile since I threw my EVO3/DSSR in and had 0 grinds since

                          Who did you talk to there? im guessing you meant Kassel not Kessle? If its Kassel, one of my good buddys owns that shop.

                                I'm going to smoke my ellipsoids tonight while I have them apart to tint the lenses. I'm using night shades because I don't want to go super dark.

                                I planned on tinting the insides of the lenses but I'm thinking tinting the reflectors may work a little better.

                                Any input or tips for getting these apart
                                I'll be using a heat gun(girlfriend says no car parts in her oven)
