Removed the front bumper and other bits to clean everything

https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1q_og...8Fsoa309fGzN-S


https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1uiiP...R0vY55K4c5CWyk


https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1D9UB...wz5dvlFTD6U3CI

Cleaned it because this happened on one of our road trips

https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1uiIy...514adafLx9jg-E


https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1A-j4...O_f7pnp7dlsNrL

The other reason for removing the bumper was to fit my splitters

https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1o7LJ...Zy7V9xca5mLKGf


https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1A0mV...rCgBh5YYrZDvv6

Had a problem with my fuel gauge incorrectly reporting the fuel level so removed and fixed the fuel sender.

Engine internals are looking clean and healthy. Have you done your oil pump nut yet?

Thank you. Nope not yet, the plan is to do it when I drop the sump to replace the gasket (noticed that it is starting to sweat ever so slightly). I have also got myself a spare oil pump to experiment with in anticipation.

I think its time you did the M3 diff conversion, the gearing on your car is stupid long and with the LS your corner exit speeds will increase.
