Nice seeing you yesterday and congrats on the new puppy. Goldens are great dogs. I grew up with one as a kid. Hey, it looks like you managed to get the clamps for your Akra

Ask and ye shall receive...

Want to get the smog done on the E46 M3 because it's required for change of ownership, and it gives us a year...

But unfortunately she failed smog.

Squeaky clean out of the tail pipe - engine is running beautifully. The issue is that the Euro CSL SMG software prevents the DME from setting readiness. So I've flashed the transmission software back to stock and need to get readiness set. After that, the E46 M3 is going to be dyno tuned, with some custom parameters in the DME to beef up the downshifts and make it more DCT like. After that is all done, then it's time for some more surgery.

The E90 has about 350 miles on the new motor and is running extremely well. Really liking the new motor mounts. You can feel slightly more vibration at idle, but under load, the car feels more solid (especially the transmission). Have only hit about 5,000 RPM so far. It's an incredible tease.. she wants to go faster.

And the puppy.... is more than I bargained for..

All in good time. Good things come to those who wait. This will not be a quick build.
