All Out NA Build Thread...Where did my engine go?

So everything finally went to the machine shop today, meaning I have some time to create a thread. I'll keep the words short and sweet for now, and just load up on pictures.

Where did my engine go?

The importance of labeling wires...even if you know where they go.

What the E46 shares the garage with.

Pulled, accessories removed, ready for disassembly.

The cylinder head was CLEAN...almost a shame it's being torn apart, almost.

Cylinders

Head

Schrick 264/248s

CP 11:1 CR pistons

Supertech Double Valve Springs

Supertech seats and titanium retainers

Supertech +1mm Valves

Eagle Rods

JB Racing lightweight flywheel

Sachs M5 clutch

Iwis racing chains

I'm having ESS do the tune. It should take an initial tune, a couple of dyno pulls, and then a final tune.

I sourced the parts from numerous different places, if you were wondering about any specific parts, just shoot me a PM and I'll let you know.

Just keep progressing in terms of the work you do. Don't be afraid to learn, and don't be afraid to take a project on. Seek help if you need it. Never be too proud to admit you don't know something. A lot of people won't admit it, but it is also why they will never learn.
