Wow, this is so minty. I love the attention to detail.

Makes me want to do this level of detail work on my e46 now!

Had a day to mess with the motor again.

Cam follower installation and cleanup along the way. Time consuming to keep everything in their original order, but it was worth it.






Cams installed



VANOS Side






I decided to glass bead blast the VANOS body too.






Rebuilding the VANOS. New seals, rattle fix and redrilled pump disc







I decided to continue the S50B30/2 theme into the metal valve cover. It's obviously covered by the plastic beauty cover, but this looks... so... damn... good... Opens up the possibility of running without the plastic cover (S54 have coil pack cooling issues).





VANOS was coated in CarPro DLux. Really helps repel water, oil, etc.





Hazet pin removal tool set arrived. Hopefully these are applicable to BMW.

Very fine work! Hopefully, the car will not be too nice to drive.

Looks amazing, BR! Really glad you decided to go w/ the zinc coating on the hardware, it provides a great contrast.

Can’t wait to see this sucker wrapped up!

That glass beading does wonders.

I already wanted an s54 in my car but this makes the want even more real.

Great work, Brent!

Good lord how do you get things so clean! I scrubbed and scrubbed my head to get the varnish off and just gave up.
