327i Build Survey

I'm planning my 327i project down the line, and I'm looking for real world examples of these builds for my considerations. I am looking for the opinions of others from THEIR builds and how they turned out.

1. What cam did you run?

2. 885 or 731?

3. Boost or NA?

4. What crankshaft?

5. What pistons?

7. Did you deck the block 2mm?

8. Dyno numbers?

9. Did you run megasquirt or other DME?
