    I still need to buy rings, bearings, and a ton of misc. Gaskets, nuts, bolts, etc.. I think $300 more will get me everything else I need to get this bitch back together. Slow going but I can see the light!

    $300 until you check your piston squirters. You will also want the springless rear main seal ($100) as the cheap Felpro spring type leak.

    Oil squirters and rear main were all replaced brand new on my old short block with genuine BMW parts. I was just gonna swap them over to the new block.

    As much as I'd love to do a gofundme I enjoy knowing that I put together this beast with my hard earned money. I'm living off tuna sammiches, driving around my daily with no a/c in AL summer because a new compressor could be turbo parts for the m3, and my pull out game is strong because condoms / birth control also could be turbo parts. But it will all be worth it in the end!
