Carb'd 7Ms are very popular in the 8th circle of hell. This is the primary market. Gordon is actually so old that he's already dead and Satan recruited him as the head mechanic to keep all those 7Ms down there running.

This thread seems like one big testament to how shitty the 7M really is. I've always known it was a hunk of crap but I never knew the extent of it.

^ That is a badass piece of work right there. Are you going to integrate a crank scraper into it?

All e46 M3's euro and US have ITB's. The owners that are crying are E36ers, I know because I used to be one of them.

 

The E36 m3 had a completely different engine US vs. euro.

Nope you are wrong Gordon. The only us spec M car to not have itb's is the e36 m3.They also dropped the 4 door M3 for the E46 chassis. I worked at BMW for over 5 years and have seen countless E46's. Here's proof for you though so you know from a US spec brochure, first paragraph, towards bottom:

On the bumpers. They're big enough to hold industrial sized solar panels.

You're the Doo Doo, figure it out! Do what 7M Front facing manifold owners do, relocate the alternator at a lower location.

is accusump the cylinder thing that holds an additional 1-3 quarts of oil and opens up a valve when oil pressure drops below a certain PSI? we use something similar on the porsche race cars we build but i can't remember what its called.

Cool. Although the new watercooled porsches are advertised as dry sump, they arent actually. On long high g sweepers, they're bad about losing pressure, thats where the extra squirt comes in.

Duax: are you talking about the oil pump countershaft bearing?

looks good duax, one less oil bearing that needs feeding, means more oil can go where its needed. +

Duax: loving the oil system mods. Looking forward to seeing all of it, you're definitely giving me a bunch of ideas for my 7m build.

Is all the machining done on the oil pump shaft or will the block need some work as well?
