So the plan was for me to go to korea and meet with my uncle and my partner and then meet whoever else we need to through my uncle's intro and the ppl my partner has connected with.
My most recent contract job was expected to last through feb and possibly into march, which would have made it difficult to meet with everyone together. I was going to take like 2 days off and take a quick weekend trip .. which might or might not have been enough to schedule all the meetings.
Then the contract job unexpectedly ended early, freeing me up to go to korea with plenty of time. And i at least made money to buy the plane ticket and have some money to spend there.
And just now, I stumbled onto a lecture series video on YouTube ... where the speaker said, "people don't remember where you started. They only remember where you end up. So at least begin whatever it is you want to do." (Loose translation)
Although I don't agree with the whole statement, I do agree that it is important to START
So more and more signs point to yes

When you're not rushing things go a lot more smoothly.

Lose 80lbs of front end nose weight along with the chance to get more omph out of your engine.

but then you realize it is a plastic bag, #feelsgoodman

Had the same heart attack this morning...It was a piece of semi-truck tire...Thankfully I am driving a pick up to work so it passed harmlessly under me and no fuks given.

So it's the exact same block but in an alloy good for 80 pounds less weight? It's going to cost $1750? Id rather put that towards a turbo or s/c or Sxx engine or maybe an lsx engine swap.

With the m30b32 in my car my best bet is a better flowing head and an update to my ECM as its not tunable.

Before I had the bmw, I was driving next to a semi on the freeway and one of the rear tires exploded right next to me , pieces of tire flew all over the car, scared the sh1t out of me.....

Never said it was affordable Just baller. LS1 would be nice just need to fab up a lot of little things as not many e24 guys have gone that route as far as I know. Of course your could pull a m30b35 from the yard refresh it and install it easily enough, then Megasquirt it. Actually not a lot of love for superchargers in the old BMW world mostly turbo. and S50/52 wouldn't be a good idea for the e24 it's not enough omph in the low end for such a big car not to mention the weight difference isn't really a lot and again it would be a one off project like the LS1.

I have to find this pic, I hope I have it on my external but I took a pic once of a semi-truck tire that had a bubble in the sidewall the size of my head Needless to say I got his attention before his tire did for him.

Do note I said not many , not that it hasn't been done. There's and LS engine in just about every chassis known to man. I just don't think there is an off the shelf kit you can use and you'd need to fabricate a lot of stuff as seen in that link.
