Machine shop? Contact Bimmersport, they deal with an excellent machine shop that does mint work on engines.
I know the piston is the point, I would like to keep in low cost so I choose the i piston rather than the custom make piston, but there is another problem pop up, someone said that the skirt for the i piston need to be machine otherwise it will touch the e crank when it's at the bottom point. Is that true??
