    Thanks, much appreciated. Rebello Racing is doing the whole build, form the engine, install and tuning. So, I truly believe this will work out for the best.

    I forgot to add some info. The new improved Darton sleeves are flanged which provide a better and tighter fit to the head gasket, but it also requires some special machineto install the sleeves that VAC has. A Special thanks to Tony at VAC for all his help. He is a stand-up guy, and very knowledgeable.

    There seems to be too much damage to my block from my engine carnage, so I am getting a Darton flanged sleeved short block from VAC Motorsports. Maybe use my old block as a coffee table.

    You could have bought a new M5 by now.

    Anybody have an in for silicon hoses? Turbo Hoses is local but very high priced. I am more interested in quality than price (but not ridiculous price). Thanks

    Coming along pretty good, thanks. VAC Motorsports installed Darton flange sleeves in new M62 block. Having new JE pistons , more aggressive cams installed with more head porting by Rebello Racing. Rebello will also install engine and do the tuning. Also maybe larger injectors and fuel pump. If no water leak is detected on WI system (aftercooler checked out ok for leaks), then logically water got into the engine when RMS blew the head gasket when they tried to "tune" my car before. Glad that nightmare is over.
