Check out this man-whore right here.

Us m20 guys appreciate a nice backend too

I wish it where possible for me to flash platforms that old, i can put the euro ecu file on the m50 and m52, makes it a bit more snappy.

Were do you work? As i know this isnt your full time thing at these prices. Not even worth most peoples time to do it for that cheap.

Used to work at oshkosh truck as a heavy armor welder and repair welder

Now i work at metalcraft of mayville as a robotic/manual welder making parts fot scag,john deere,and cat.

So no background in automotive repair?

 

Sounds like the beginning of an angry union worker rant with the focal point being that unless you are ASE certified and have made a living at one time as a mechanic you are not allowed to touch anything mechanical on the car. 

People pay me to do side jobs all the time. 

One guy I did a valve adjustment for got scoliosis 3 weeks later and someone I did brakes for turned gay but otherwise my lack of professional experience hasnt mattered.

Yup, Bob is awesome.

I've gone to this guy for my E85 fuel pump install, backend flash, and other miscellaneous crap. Would've had him walnut blast my valves, but I already had it done before meeting him.

Cheap prices and knowledgeable, would recommend.

Bob, I'm in Fdl a lot, covering 1/3 of WI as my territory. Definitely interested in having you walnut blast my N55. I sent you a PM on N54tech, but I heard something happened. How long does this blast process take, start-to-finish? Would you have time this Wednesday, Thursday or Friday?

just added that if you bring the gasket(s) for your oil filer housing i can swap them out for 30 bucks while where in there!

pm me for parts needed if you dont know. but oil cooler modles have an extra gasket for the t stat housing for the cooler.

 and you need the little oring for the water pipe as well. then the base gasket. i dont keep the parts here but if you need . i can order them for you and you can pay for them with the job :)

So I went and saw Bob today and all I have to say is... AWESOME!

 

Bob is a genuinely nice guy who just happens to know his shit about the n54/n55.  His garage was clean and organized and from the minute you step in there he makes you feel right at home.  The set up for the walnut blasting never made me question the authenticity of the service.  He was meticulous about perfecting the repair and almost obsessive about maintaining cleanliness while working.  I am thoroughly pleased with the finished product!  There is a noticeable difference in gears 2-3-4 and the power delivery is much smoother through the power band.

I was in the garage during the entire service and I will that as an ASE certified technician... I APPROVE!

 

Now for the pics:
