Yes, I was 250lbs heavy. This is the second time, I have drove the car since Aug 4th. The first time was friday... I need more time on the dyno, the car has more in it. I was running a 75 with 93/104 mix.

I think I can do better! Need to swap my dif out for something a bit longer.. 3.07, 3.15 etc. Get some hard data, swap out some jets. More to come. Edit the M3 is owned by a friend that is local. M3 mods, exhaust, evolve tune, pullies, I think it has an intake also.

Everyone needs to calm down. We're all here for the same purpose. Xi sorry all the blocks you tried we trashed. What's up with that?

I'm just putting the information on the forum, this wasn't to be an internet star. It was to help others that are afraid of using spray. A big diy spray thread that's it. This forum has almost zero threads of a simple install. Just trying to fill the gap. I will update it a few more times and have it closed. Thanks

You guys are unbelievable. I'm letting a ton of personal attacks go, but I'm now subscribed to this thread so consider this fair warning. Don't post any more insults, thread jacks or anything else that isn't on topic and growing the community.

Just bad luck I guess, one had a some really odd damage in the lower end. The other had water/rust in the cylinders and to be perfectly honest. I ruined the 3rd being a dumb ass. But we all live and learn. I'm debating going with an m52 block.

Go M52tu! You won't regret it. This things bullet proof.

I hope you're kidding, Jared...IIRC, there's a sleeving difference between the two blocks. The combination short block shouldn't be a problem.

After tearing down soo many blocks, that died in not so violent ways. I think I'd rather go with the m52. Might even be cheaper. Looking to make about 600 with the next build.

I think the m52tu is just as strong if not stronger. Less likely to cause detonation being aluminum too.

Good block too, at least it'll have the right displacement. Can't go wrong with a square engine.

Alright, got the block pulled out and somewhat stripped down for you. Drained the oil out too.

I'll bring it up tomorrow morning so you can look at it.
