    Grabbed some O2 sensor logs:

    Sensor response at idle:


    Sensor response at 2krpm:


    Sensor response with varying throttle inputs:


    Like I posted in another thread, it looks like I'll be doing a cat replacement...or headers...or both.

    I just ran up my credit card bill for this car...it hurt a lot. Sigh...HUGE maintenance/WYAIT update in the future.

    The mechanicals WILL be sorted after all is said and done. Then I can focus on the exterior and interior condition.

    Happy freaking New Year

    3 piece shipment from FCP came in on Wed...seriously thinking about posting updates on YouTube since I'm almost at my upload limit on Flickr. It's the only social media platform that I haven't tried out. Plus they need more ZHP content

    Also a special package coming from europartsonline... heh heh heh
    (Edit: they bumped the price of the GEN3 up $70, $455 to $525)

    Good timing too, because my car just threw a brick of codes at me:
    P0306
    P0420 (mmmmm 420)
    P0430

    I'm hoping the LC-2 will play nicely and make the car great again, we will see in the very near future.

    I did end up starting a YouTube channel...it's very easy to tell that I'm a noob at this. I'm trying to find my groove with it. Just takes time I guess. Things that have happened since my last update are as follows:

    130 lbs of parts from FCP


    Everyone's favorite light:


    Joined BMWCCA:


    Started replacing things, preventatively...
    Shocks:


    Struts:


    Bought some headers, going to get them ceramic coated this summer. Jet-Hot quoted me $300(!):


    Got a clutch stop:


    And got some tools, because I don't like headaches:

    Coolant flush done. 194k
    Drain old kool-aid, run prestone flush for 3-4 days, rinse with distilled water, fill with new kool-aid.

    Intake manifold removed, block cleaned.
    Things replaced:
    Hoses and pipes
    Starter
    Engine coolant sensor
    TB cleaned and gasket replaced
    IM gasket
    Knock sensors
    IN cam, EX cam and crank sensors
    MAF
    Intake boots

    Car starts with enthusiasm now and pulls much harder. Well worth the work.

    Also found that someone has been in here previously. The injector harness clips were missing and the ECT sensor plug was damaged. The previous cylinder #6 misfire I had is now gone, but now I have a P3198 code related to the ECT sensor. I will probably replace the whole injector harness with a good one from the junkyard. That should fix both issues.

    Nice! Just curious, did you unbolt the starter from up top or underneath?
