This stream auto-updates

  1. Yesterday
  2. "hips" I know a guy who's into that sort of thing. Hi Jake! *waves a lot*
  3. Last week
  4. Got the ports all cleaned, fresh gaskets, fresh hardware and the headers bolted up. Now just have to sort through the O2 sensor wiring because I’m an idiot and didn’t mark them. I'll have to fire up Ecuworx too and code out the downstream O2 sensor and secondary air pump so we don't get a CEL.
  5. Dont let the GF know how much you have spent in the last few months.
  6. Replaced the CPV o-ring with a viton one while I was waiting on parts to finish the headers. It wasn’t leaking, but seems like a PITA to replace later. While in there I noticed the cam position sensor is leaking a bit. Death by 1000 gaskets…
  7. I've had a few people reach out to me asking to check back into WIBimmers... and I realized it's been way too long since I've updated this thread. So much has happened since my last update a year and a half ago. My Instagram and YouTube channel are where I post most of my content. Be sure to follow/subscribe if you're interested in keeping up with my BMW builds! I'm currently in talks with Billiam Mason (BMB Autowerks) about a built engine. The 135i engine is finally ticking/knocking internally after all of the 750+whp abuse. My goal is to get something that can handle 900whp and maaaaaybe throw a bigger turbo on it. He recommended a 6875 Gen 2. Here are a few pictures/videos to enjoy.
  8. At least they offset the weight by removing the dashboard. Are people just too embarrassed to put "drift build" in the title these days?
  9. In the future I would suggest invest in an Airlift. You can suck all the coolant out of the system without spilling much. As far as getting to the manifold bolts, I feel your pain. lol
  10. $2k for a v8 E30 project! https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/269618381773105/?ref=messenger_share
  11. Turner Motorsports finished their stroker S65 e46 build!
  12. If that's what they say then I'd go with that! I know when KW sent me my coilovers they came with a new set of shorter sway bar end links to avoid the pre-loading and I know others that do it as well. I'm sure it's like everything else handling related where it's heavily opinion based on independent results. If it works it works!
  13. I paid some guy on marketplace like $5 last time I needed one lol
  14. Earlier
  15. Door panels and floor mats sold. Updated some pics and added a few things.
  16. Anyone here have access to Carfax reports? I thought I remembered someone asking awhile back about it, figured I’d check before I went and bought one.
  17. Waiting on some suspension parts yet so I started the header install. Have to say that this is MUCH harder than the downpipe install on my F30. Since there's such limited room to work I had to remove the coolant reservoir tank, turkey basting out all the coolant so I didn't make an absolute disaster. Still probably spilled 1/2 gallon on the floor that came out the other end though lol. Even with this and the heat shielding out of the way, access to the 18 nuts is still pretty grueling. Just kept swapping out swivel, wobble and regular extensions, as it seems like each nut requires a different approach. After a few hours I finally got the old set out, woohoo! Still waiting on new gaskets and nuts, but should be here in about a week or so and I can get the new headers installed.
  18. Honestly fairly new to the intricacies of suspension tuning so I reached out to TC Kline and got this response I could see how adjustable links could come into play with corner balancing, but I've also read BMWs are pretty well balanced from the factory. I'll definitely do my best to test out all this info and report back though!
  19. He won’t hear it over the Ed Sheeran he listens to
  20. What a nice guy @wasnt m3 are you planning on selling it lol
  21. Just know that heim joint sway links can be noisy. So if that doesn't bother you, go for it! I have them on my Z3 Coupe and will be switching them out for some adjustable ball joint style sway links to quiet things down. Just an FYI
  22. Bump with more things added.
