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.
