I don't understand.... Why would the internals of that motor in your motor make more power than it's original state

more displacement (other goodies are an S52 cams, and a chip). makes my 2.8 a 3.0 with ~10.3:1 CR

My Ride: just an M3, sort of
no need for the 3.0 and the possibility of hitting the head with your pistons. Some combos don't exactly work with these motors and you'll need to do some serious research on bf.c in the forced induction thread. They seem to know the most. If you really want power now before you go FI, get the S50 or 52 cams and 3.5" maf. they are the best bang for buck to hold you over. and besides, the stock 2.8L square motor is one of the best bmw motors for FI.

You should be able to reuse your old bolts. You need new gaskets though. $50 was the original price. I'll take $40 just to get them out of the garage!

Some dude is cranking out the gaskets for the throttle plate adapter to fit the b30 intake manifold to the b28.
It's been proven to make some nice gains all across. I might try that one.

So I would like to get coilovers, and give my whip a nice low aggressive stance. However, I'm wondering if it will look nice with my csl reps. Having a hard time imagining an aggressive look with those.
And just my luck. I found a deal going right now for lm reps for just 50 more than what I payed for my csl reps

Did my RTABs yesterday... I must say it was much easier than I expected. Did that and rear shocks to finish my coilovers and rear shock mounts in about 3 hours. With help from my 8 year old son.

John, I will not be needing them spacers if you want them back, I could use the cash... haha. Dont even need the 5's I got for front or rear and still have PLENTY of fender work to do. Letting them settle for a few days before I do anything more. The rear fenders may or may not be sitting on the tires currently... whoops!!
