    That is a cool car (and thumbs-up on the colors). My brother owns one of these (much lower mileage coupe)- I'll have to send him here.

    There are cars with only 50K miles that look like basketcases. Still can't believe milage is 10x that.

    Well overdue for an update on this project.

    Pulled the car into the shop this morning around 9:30 for a state inspection.


    Then I pulled the motor out.

    Disassembly will begin on Monday morning and take place between work hours.


    Planning on sending the block/crank/rods/pistons and head to the machine shop. Hoping to reuse the pistons and rods but we will have to wait and see.

    500k Mile Beauty (E36 M3)

    Block, crank and head were sent out to a local machine shop last week. They got back to me today confirming it needs to be bored out to 87mm to clear the scoring, however it does not need to be decked and the crank was perfectly fine, they told me to just get standard size bearings for rod and mains and send the pistons to them for fitment when they arrived.

    That being said this rebuild is starting to feel real, ordered a set of eagle h beam rods and JE pistons spec’d at 87mm 11.5:1 CR

    Everything should be in between the 12-16th per the shipping info.

    Stock is 10.5:1 (edited: not sure why I said 9.5:1 )

    From the little research I did, 11.5:1 seems to be the highest you can run on pump gas “safely”
