Speaking of local FI BMW action, on Saturday I helped a guy start up his turbo E30 track car for the first time (I helped out with the MS stuff). It's too bad he hasn't done up a build thread for it because he put together a legit set-up with a built motor, precision turbo, custom fuel system, brake balance adjustment, and lots of other cool bits. I'm sure you guys will see him out on the track this summer.

M20B25. He pretty much built it to be able to put down 300-350whp reliably all day long.

I'm contemplating a motor build, have a 2.7 and a euro 2.0. Thinking off the 773 head from the 2.0 on the 2.7 bottom end.
