      It's powdercoat ed in there. I do feel a bit cheesy about that aspect. I kinda feel like it's the same as running a mt2 wheel....

      If it looks good and performs well, you shouldn't give much of a fuck.

        agreed. and if you really want something covered up, there's always a sharpie or krylon. i don't think i'd go so far as to deface it tho...

        thanks. ordered some.

          One of the guys on the facebook group is selling an e46 wagon for 5300, probably could be talked down. It's super clean, but auto.

              Which ones did you get? The black ///M ones look kinda sketchy from the stock photo.

                I've had both the black ones and the silver ones. Stock photos of the black ones are sketchy, but they're in perfect condition. The stock photo shows some smeared powder coat or something. Mine are perfect.

                  Joel, which Zender spoiler is it? I figured it would be gone, but if its the one Ive been looking for I will ask one of the guys to hold on to it for me

                            m42 head is on, but alas there is a problem.

                            block is LOCKED into TDC postition. head is locked at TDC position as well. cam marked "E" is on the intake side, cam marked "A" is on the exhaust side.

                            now, the timing chain I had ziptied to the cam sprockets but no matter what I do there is just no where near enough slack to get sprockets on the cams. I undid the zipties to try and get the sprockets on but that shit didnt work so Im stuck. Not sure how the chain is a cm too short all of a sudden, Im thinking it might have a bind near the oil pump sprocket or something.

                            Im thinking of unlocking the bottom end and finessing a wrench on the crank pulley to try and get this "knot" out of the chain. any ideas? I would really appreciate the help. Im 100% sure the head is bolted down proper, along with the camshafts and their position, so I am not why this chain wont co-operate.

                            TIA

                              Did you check the guides? If they are trashed there could be bits of plastic holding it up.

                                the guides arent BRAND NEW, for instance, the tensioning guide has about a half millimeter of wear - nothing to worry about though.

                                Im lost why this thing wont work, the chain is seriously like a cm too short, no way in hell it is gonna slip on.
