Really? Nice! I know they even stock MLS HGs as well for the 24v motors which is kinda odd but cool as well.

$300 is a bit expensive considering that's how much you got the car for . But what do they usually go for? I've seen them for like $220 USD.

Yeah, not worth it in my opinion, 300$ could be spent elsewhere.

Scott, my buddy DJ and I pulled the block out by hand.. with rope. Apparently 7/16 closed end wrenches work on the torx bolts on the top of the tranny. We changed the rear main seal and RTV siliconed the shit out of it, if it leaks I'm selling the car.

I also installed a E32 brake reservoir, I just need to get a t-fitting for the clutch line then we're all gravy on that front. I think putting the block back in will require a picker. Only plans now are getting the head back and clean and clean some more.

Installed the brake reservoir with the clutch line t'd in. Put the 19lbs injectors in. Changed a bunch of gaskets. All that's left is to put the car back together when I get the head back.

If the RMS leaks, it's because it's a whore to install. Who the hell invented half the crap on these engines?

It needs new gas but it runs. Almost had a heart attack though before I did my first oil flush.
