4/12/2010 Picked up Bob's 1998 318ti today. 162k miles and a blown head gasket and probably warped head.
They only weigh 2860 lbs. Too bad they only make 138 hp @ 6000 rpm/133 lb-ft @ 4300 rpm. Maybe I can fix that.
Left rear fender has some rust. I guess I'll have to cut it off and put fiberglass fenders so I can run some real big wheels and tires.
More rust on bottom of passenger door:
no compression. Caused by area between top valves worn or melted away?
Head gasket actually looks fine with no breaks:
Pistons and piston walls look good:
Stock header looks might fine:
4/23 Used Motor picked up:
It was from the car below. Too bad I don't have the Downing Atlanta supercharger.
