Finally had a chance to update the Google XLS Sheet.

Most noticeable changes are around the engine section.

Box showed up with new floor mats. 12 year old ones are still decent but have seen the millage and 12 years of drives. Also got some new O rings for the coming motor work and wheel cover. No longer have break ducts so closing them off from the wheel well.

The Vanos Beisan System arrived YAY. Now I just need to get the WPC bearings and I have all the parts I ordered. Though people keep taking my bearings as they need them last minute. I have had to re-order them for the third time LOL.



Some people saw the car collection in the back ground. Here is a better shot of 80% of them. There is still another cabinet to the left and more below on the left.



Last update is a quick video having a little fun at APEX for the photo shoot HEHE.

You'll love the Beisan overhaul. Works wonders with the VANOS!

Keep up the great progress.

Ok took a few months but finally got around to removing the CSL Door cards. Gave them to a friend to makes carbon fiber to have the scratches fixed and made to look as good as new. Hopefully I will get them back next week so I can put them back into the car.

Sorry for the delayed update. Car has been finally dropped off at the shop for the head removal and other CSL parts install. Head is heading down to LA to have the CSL valves, Supertech springs and retainers, head work, and intake port match work done.

I hope to post pictures of the Vanos rebuild here in the next week or two.

Looks like my car made it into the APEX Wheel add. Nice surprise when opening the recent issue of Roundel.

Finally have some progress on the head removal. VANOS has been removed and I get to do some upgrading this weekend =) The shop said they will be able to remove the head in 2 weeks so I can send it down to LA for valve install and all the other upgrades.

After almost 3 months the head is finally off the car and off to get work done. Details of why it took so long are boring but let say just say YAY it is moving along now.

Head is finally back from Lang Racing. All first look at what a CSL head actually looks like with the shiny pointy valves installed. Can't wait to drive the car with all the changes and rock solid VANOS.

This is kind of a sad but also exhilarating post at the same time. The last of the MAJOR work on my CSL project is now down. All the is left is some little odds and ends that I will do myself in the next week or two. It took 12 years to get to this point and I never imaged when I started this journey that I would have the car where it is today.

Ok enough of the sentimental BS, show us the dam images right =P

For those looking for a shop, obviously I highly recommend them as well as use them for all my BMWs. Remember the quality of the work is what matters not just the cost. The fact they happen to be on the reasonable side is a plus. If you need any CSL or standard work done, there is no better place to go. Thanks to the gang there for finishing the CSL car.

---------------------------------

The car was dropped off to my old show to finish all the head and selected items. Below is what was to be completed this time around:
  • Remove head to be sent to machine shop / reinstall head upon return
  • Head word done by Lang Racing
  • Install CSL Valves
  • Supertech Valve Spring Kit
  • Supertech Stainless Steel Intake and Exhaust Valves
  • Complete Disassembly & Cleaning
  • Comprehensive Leak, Crack & Pressure Test
  • Inspect All Components For Irregular Wear
  • Our High performance Five Angle Valve Job
  • New Valve Seals
  • Trueness Checked & Resurfaced Mating Surface
  • Unshrouding of Valves
  • Blend the throttle body ports to the intake valves and smooth out the CNC cuts on the intake side of the cylinder head.
  • Install new front spindles (CSL King PinS)
  • Note: The CSL king pins have the same part numbers as standard accept the middle three numbers are different. When these were installed we thought we had been lied to all these years they were different. Once installed you can see the difference as well.
  • Beisan Vanos install (I did the Vanos work , they just reinstalled the Vanos into the car once the head came back)
  • CSL Cabin Air Filter assembly
  • SMG sensor replacement
  • Change over to OE BMW brake fluid for ATB Blue
  • Differential fluid change

Head tear down and removal
