I got most of it back together!, intake manifold on with all the stock injectors, rotor and cap!, some coolant hoses... still to go in would be the rad, plug in all the harnesses, replace all vac. Lines, reinstall fuel lines, replace oil pan!, and setup oil return into new pan

Started working on the car again, me and nick petra (fellow e34 owner) helped me out with removing the old e28 control arms and lower strut bracket. Im replacing all of this with my 540i suspension that i have left from my parts car.

I also cut the strut housings a bit, instead of trying to remove the strut insert i just cut it and pulled it out. Ill be cutting the strut hoising down to 2 inches for when i weld in coil overs. Not sure of which ones just yet!

Just figuring out the wiring for my megasquirt, I wrote down what each wire in the stock dme harness is for and I did the same for the ms3 harness... I still need to do it for the ms3x harness (ill only be using the sequential injector wires from this harness)

Also got my thinner mls as todd at tcd said the .120 would be to thick and would reduce performance as stock comp. ratio is perfect for boost!!

Also Got some stickers made!!
