Apparently he loves to jump on top of the bimmers and wave at the motion sensor.

Tested mine at the track this weekend. Definitely notice that the engine is smoother near redline. There is still some harshness above 6k but significantly less. So hopefully this helps reduce the likelihood of the oil pump nut backing off...now if I can only stop spinning the car.

great news on my end - I pulled the pan on the TS3 engine and the oil pump nut was very tight

I removed the windedge pan and checked the cyl walls - everything looks great - front and rear main seals in great shape and there dont seem to be any leaks on the bottom end


cams look good - the only reason I opened the top end - my vanos has been off so many times the I stripped a stud awhile ago and it has been a slow leak - driving me nuts - so fixing that before getting it ready for going into wagon

Just wait until VAC gets set up and ready to sell these for the M54. Then try to do a group buy with them. It will be much easier.

Someone just needs to talk to ATI, collect the money and specs, send to ATI, receive the dampers and mail them out.
