    Nice!

    I'm assuming you're talking about the needle bearings in the throttle bodies? Any luck sourcing an equivalent?

    This is where the trove of m3f knowledge would have come in handy - maybe someone on m3cutters has gone through this or post the question on the new m3f (m3forum.us or namforum.com, both are the same).

    Also, what kind of pistons did you go with?

    Yeah, the 12 needle bearings on both sides of each butterfly valve. I have ordered every similar bearing I could find to try them out but there is always something odd about them. The stock size is 8mm inner 12mm outer and 14mm width. I was able to find an 8x12x12, itís 2mm short but I might be able to find a washer. If these donít work Iím giving up.

    M3forums being down right now is terrible timing. I had so many links saved to my home-screen that donít work any more and I was watching items in the classifieds.

    JE forged pistons are what I ended up with after waiting almost 2 months for Wiseco pistons that never shipped.

    Here she is. S54 is in and LMs are on. I think it will stay like this for a while.
