S, M... whatever It still has my intake on it, right? Guessing I'll never see the S50 replacement for that, huh?

Hankichemee = Throttle Body
Woobie = Intake

Paul and me went over to Fair's on Saturday and got the motor pulled in the 318. Here's some pics of the day: http://mccall.smugmug.com/gallery/3031023

We got it out with little drama. Next step, swap everything over from the other motor and put that baby back in (oh yea, I'm sure Fair will do a little bit of cleaning) =

I spent the better part of this evening cleaning up the mess in the shop from this tear down. Big thanks to McCall and Paul for helping on Saturday. Sunday was spent struggling to learn a new CAD system and fighting with importing/exporting. And again late into tonight. Grr...

Got the old 318 engine on the stand (after buying some M12x1.75 x 90mmL bolts) and compacted the hoist. Picked up all of the E30 parts and put them on shelves, cleaned the floors (damn thing leaked coolant and oil everywhere), moved the XP car back in, and even got the M3 washed and back in the garage. This E30 needs a power washing under hood for sure, but it cleaned up fairly well on the outside.

We've decided to spend as little as possible on the E30 for now to get it running so we'll be ordering gaskets and some hoses, and as little else as possible. Of course I already got two new roundels to replace the trashed stock ones.

Nah... STU won't allow me to use it. Sell it on Ebay for $150 and then have a drink (fruity Dr. Pepper) on me

You coming up for the Divisional? Offered Hanchey a co-drive at a regional while he is up here and he blew me off!
