    Vanos is all done! The diesel sound is mostly gone. Probably should have replaced the exhaust chains but this will do for now. Time to drive!

    Prep has begun for the shock tower reinforcement welding! Will be stitch welding the wheel well side of the stock shock tower also.

    Vanos time is here! After getting the top, front covers off it does look like the PO did do the timing chain and guides. Engine looks relatively clean which makes me all warm and fuzzy on the insides. Will be replacing the vanos units, vanos solenoids, chain tensioners and spark plugs.

    More welding! Jake @ Rawspeed is just amazing. Worth every penny!! He did my titanium/stainless exhaust and a lot of other odds and ends. Hit him up!

    Thanks!! With real estate being busy I am delegating work to a friend/Master BMW Tech so I can't take all the credit but I am back seat driving the process as much as I can. 🤣

    It was under the knife for about 3-4 months of hitting it hard. Now just working out the smaller bugs from daily driving it but I think I'm almost to being 100%. Sunroof rattle is next up. That condom thing was ziptied on there to block that hole. So weird. I'll get more final pics. Thanks!! Thank you! Thanks! I wish they did a fiberglass tailgate like the XJ Jeeps did. Lighter and it doesn't rust! Blunttech just quoted me $1650ish for a new tailgate. It might be worth it!

    Oil change at 1,327 miles. Valvoline Conventional 10w-30 and a Napa 1515 Gold Filter. I also replaced a leaking CCV vacuum pump -12an 90* fitting and added a short radius 90* and a 120* fitting on the hose side to give me more space from the top of the oil pan.

    Crank case vent was making a horn noise. Dug into it and found a bunch of sketchy stuff from a PO. They tried to bypass the CCV and run it through the weird catch can I posted about earlier. One hose for that catch can was being pinched by the intake manifold. So weird. Glad I was able to get into the top of the motor to replace all the brittle things.
