nothing for the actual car.

per our phone call last night when I pulled the oil pan off it was full of chocolate milkshake so I need:

BMW Headgasket Kit $300
BMW Head studs $35 or $200 for ARP studs
Cooling system kit: $200
New Belts etc $100
Lightweight flywheel/clutch $600
New Tune for ECU to delete immobilizer stuff: $350
Raceland Headers $200
Custom Exhaust $200-400
Wheels: $416
Tires: $500

so the car itself doesnt need anything but wheels/tires. the motor needs lots....

plus if I'm in there I'd like to do things right which also means:
Hot Tank/Surface the Cylinder head: $85
New retainers and possibly springs for the head $550
Rebuild Vanos Unit: $200
Upgraded Air Intake $75
New Plugs: $30
Aluminum Pulley's $120
Wire Wheel and re-paint block: $25


If i'm going to do the work I want to do it right and I want to know that I will be able to drive the car all summer anywhere I want to go with it.

I'm fine with re-pulling the motor next fall again to build for boost or whatever but I want it to be reliable all summer.

Stealing caffeine should be a capital offense.

Ah, then I mis-worded myself. the car itself is set. I just need tires/wheels and possibly shift linkage but otherwise car itself is ready to go.

I need street tires as well, that's what those would be for.

if we were going to pursue driving this instead of the e46 then I'd go flared fenders and all that jazz right off the bat otherwise it will be at least another year before I do that.
