That's why I order my GC stuff from BimmerWorld, they have guys that push orders so that they get sent out on time. That and they carry a bunch of stuff in stock.

Baller status, just got my NASA TT licence approved. Now all I have to do is do a NASA race school to get my comp license. Now I just have to find one, I don't think they are doing any in the Central or the Rocky Mountain region in 2012.

Yessur.

Just got tracking for 1/2 the splitter, gets here Monday. The splitter itself should be shortly behind. Now I just need to figure out why the car is running like poop.

When I started it up for the first time it sounded like a cam'd out v8, real rough idle. I pulled the valve cover and found that the timing was off. Which I found odd because I checked it a dozen times after rotating the motor by hand numerous times. The vanos was perfectly fine before (car was running great) so I don't think that was it.

Good news is the oil pan and all the stuff I had to take off to get to it has been re-installed and I can't find any leaks.

Just got off the phone with the guys from Dr. Vanos, they were super helpful. Apparently there is a super tight procedure to follow when installing the vanos and if not done correctly can cause the timing to fall out by a couple degrees. Since I didn't follow any type of procedure and just bolted that biotch back on we think this is the cause of my rough idle and timing problem. He e-mailed me the TIS which I am going through right now. Hopefully I can get it running good tonight.

After reading the TIS, I did it wrong.

Did you remove the helical gears that go into the cam gear? If you did, that's when you have to follow the special procedure. If you just pulled that vanos and left those gears in place then you would have been good.

I've worked on the car the past two nights until late so I don't know if the wife is gonna give me a third night. I think we had plans tonight to, so this may have to wait until this weekend. I'll shoot you a text if I need a hand but from looking at the TIS it shouldn't be more than an hour job.

I think I remember reading about that a long time ago.
