haha.. I could buy another BMW for the price of that engine. Yea I will be making him pay.. He took off in it on me and on his way back the car stalled out when he was pullin into the parking lot.. He starts it and pulls up.. Car sounded like it had a mean cam and smelt richer than before (and i have no emissions or cat).. He claimed he fouled a plug from missing 3rd. I drove it home with a serious lack of power and mean vibration. I did some diags yesterday and all plugs were fine checked the compression of the cylinders and the first 3 leak off... I am just lookin for a stock motor to replace and I will bolt my mods on. I was planning on selling this car.. what a shitty deal my weekend turned out to be..
