Nice work on the engine swap! They take way longer than what people would think. Little stupid things like frozen exhaust bolts and stuck connectors really take up time.

I was thrilled with the progress. But, itsa little annoying when you read DIYs on Bimmerforums saying 4 hours and nothing but metric sockets. I mean, really? Wtf are they talking about? I wasn't expecting 4 hours but it would be really cool to have an accurate description of the time and work involved.

Lol we're just messing with you, but you definitely were bringing the knowledge and keeping things moving. Also, it started raining right after you left which sucked for doing the exhaust, but nice timing for you!

Yeah dude, the rain hit me hard when I got outside of Tracy! Was scared as hell, but thankfully after a couple close calls, and couple slaps in the face, I made it home safely lol. You guys finish it?

It's 4 hours and metric sockets if you know what you're doing.


Just kidding, there are a bunch of things that take a while to do the first time. Especially the exhaust if it's rusted up.

Got a terrible phone call an hour ago, they found my cousin in a lake back up in Manitowoc. Not sure if it was suicide or if he was murdered, but what little we know is saying its leaning towards option #2. Really blows, we used to be really close growing up, lost touch for a while after his parents divorced and he moved in with his mom, and we'd recently gotten back in touch working for my uncle (his father). I feel terrible for my aunt/uncle
