    Was it worth spending that kind of money on an older BMW? That looks like its probably 90's right? Or are the rebuilds cheaper than getting another one?

    damn my friend did the same thing in his GTI and bent all the valves, the exhaust valves were much worse though. :o

    looks like you got her back better than before though so nicely done.

    some of the pistons broke on top but none shattered.

    yea shes a little better than before its laying down r260 to the wheels and still getting 35 mpg. Once we get the motor broke in we are going to do a few more things and get it up to 350ish
