    ILB6 IF ULB9's E34 M5 S38 Build thread

    She is dirty. But I will have more for everyone soon. Just waiting on some valve shims since some of them are a little loose after the time starting.

    Alright guys here it is. This is a 1991 BMW E34 M5. As you will see by the following pictures we replaced the engine block with new pistons. Due to a cracked pin hole for the timing chain guide rail pin. This car has been painted 1 time before but to the factory color. I didn't get any pictures of the engine in the car before it was removed. The interior on this car is only 1 of 2 ever made. It is really really nice in person. The headliner as been repaired back to stock form.

    Here are the pictures

    Awesome, absolutely awesome.

    So the work was pretty much to replace the pistons and the pan? Keeping it stock otherwise?

    The work was done to get it replace the block and new pistons. We had the head slightly ported. Also had the head decked, new valves, valve springs, valve guides and valve seats. The oil pan is original just cleaned it. All the hoses for coolant and oil replaced with stock. Water pump, all belt tensioners, all gaskets and o-rings replaced. Wiring loom for wiring replaced with stock. The car has Dinan cam sprockets, Dinan eeprom chip and Dinan short throw shifter. The car came out amazing. I will take some pictures of the interior as well. It is a joy to drive. Now just waiting on the back ordered valve shims. Damn BMW doesn't have many of the shims I need in the USA.

    Thank you everyone. Still more pictures to come.

    So where are you getting them from or are you just waiting until BMWNA gets them in?
