I appreciate the update, thank you very much. I'm down for the winter and have been debating on what maintenance I'm going to do.

Once you hit 100k all of the control arms both front and back usually require replacement from what I've read. I just finished doing my entire front end, haven't done the rear yet. Just FYI,...

I'll be doing a remote mount. Not enough room under the hood in my opinion. Doing a remote mount saves me from having to fabricate my own manifolds as well. The 540 is just too cramped. Remote mounts...

I'm not against buying a salvage titled vehicle, I've had several. However, I bought them for a really good deal. I'd be open to buying a 540i with a salvage title if it were closer to $4000. It...

Centrifugal superchargers are the epitome of lag. They don't reach max boost until you're at redline. A properly sized turbo will make full boost by 2200 rpm. If you want to make power, adding forced...

Fill until it overflows from the side port.
Drive for a few minutes to get the trans oil up to operating temp.
Recheck servicing level at the side port, top off as required.

It does have a big external cooler as well, make sure the external trans cooler isn't covered by debris. Mine was covered with leaves.

You wouldn't use a T78 on a 2.2 liter unless it was a drag only setup. Which is exactly what you're doing when you run twins on a 4.4. The lag will be awful.
