I would also recommend if you have an auto get a 3.64 diff from a Z4 for the heat exchanger. Just run rich and you should be a ok. I would worry more about the drivetrain then the motor anyways if over 100k miles. I would also put in new rear trailing arm bushings and differential mounts.
I have an m rear subframe with 3.62 diff getting ready to go in in the next two weeks. Its a manual.
I was looking at ahead gasket and studs.

Can't think of any other preperations, maybe add an air filter sock to help keep the dirt / rain off.

Dibs on the intake - just PM me when you are ready to sell.
Will do.

I was thinking about that. What brand gauges do you recommend?
