My original thread got pretty long so I am starting a new one here. After taking my time to prepare for the engine install (I removed the old motor four months ago!), I am finally ready. Mike, OCCoupe, is assisting me tomorrow and it's going in the way it came out, over the fender. Don has been invaluable in guiding me and answering innumerable questions. I painted inside the front valance, installed new condenser and fan, stripped out unneeded wires in radiator panel area, opened up the harness near brake booster to splice into the ECU harness, cleaned frame rails, installed new lower firewall pads (pretty cheesy item from BMW), cleaned brake lines, retaped harness, etc. I will post pics after we get it in but I thought some might like to see the monster torque wrench and crank tool we will use once motor is installed.
