There were some imperfections in the crank that I didn't like. The original bearings were worn very bad also, So I am not taking any chances with this build considering the power output!

What year E46 M3 was this? May have been pre-bearing recall.

We have just been very busy in the shop with our normal day-to-day work, its hard to find time to continually work on our M3, therefore we do it in bits & pieces as time allows. We run a full time business here, and our "project" / shop cars are normally the last to get attention as we will not put them before a customer's vehicle!
