Some work have been done last weekend. Got the scary engine out of there,

and removed the rear subframe to take a look if the reinforcement has been done to the shell.

Answer is no, and almost all the bushings are still rubber, so I ordered all of them.
The headers(unknown brand) were butchered to fit a "Y" pipe and some flex pipes.

That was stupid of the previous owner since the engine and gearbox are solid mounted.
The muffler is a Magnaflow that seem pretty restrictive.

The Bimmerworld E46 M3 race exhaust system is on it's way and should be here in a couple weeks along with the SS E36 Euro M3 headers
Some parts I ordered also came in but I keep that for an other update.(Hint, Turner)
