I'll probably do some basic clean-up, r&r on the old S52:::: thinking new power steering pump/lines, possibly rack...... new alternator, new starter, tune up. Check valves.

Then work on suspension, brakes..... paint, body, interior, roll bar to start...... and get some seat time......

Then see where this madness goes.

My good buddy has a 16 GT3...... was hoping an LSX swap would get me closer to playing with his porch-eeeeeeee.

BTW - don't buy bimmer parts on fleabay.... ended up getting some knock-off bmw emblems.... so bad they don't even line up with the bolt-holes..... off by 5 degrees... LOL.
Crazy what people will copy these days.
As in valve adjustment? No need on our S52s.
