You're car has like 180k miles right?

I believe I have a dual mass flywheel, and people say you shouldn't resurface them. I'm just super hoping it isn't damaged...because at the moment I really don't have the money to replace it.

The E46 is mainly a daily driver from this point on, I'm gonna try and keep it nice and civil. Reinforcements are mainly repairing the cracky aftermath of autoxing and tracking it hard while the E30 was down, and for future nate-daily driving shenanigans.



I got the cams right after I picked up the motor :p S50s for $300.
Yes, we have a goober. Come, let us weld.

The owner also has a 69 camaro... that thing is amazing. They just recently blew up the Donovan small block that was powering it and he's not sure what to do now with it
