    The clamp at the SC outlet looks like it's going to fall off, you may need a longer coupler for that location. Ideally you want at least a 1/4" of hose sticking out beyond the clamp to insure that the clamp won't slip off the hose of a bead and clamp installation.

    Nice job, looks clean.

    That thing is so sick. Excellent work from all the parties involved.

    Thank you!

    My diff had a slight whine to it and the pinion seal leak has gotten progressively worse. Thayer is building me a fresh 4 clutch M5 diff with their upgrade kit. Should be done and installed on Friday. Looking forward to seeing how that feels.

    Got my new plates, had all paint chips touched up and the hood, fenders, door bottoms and rockers clear wrapped with Xpel. They needed more time for the full front bumper and the rear bumper sides will also be done. (btw, MLB's Justin Verlander had his wicked 911 in getting detailed which I added pics below). Installed all 4 new rotors. Zinc slotted 355x32 rings and mounting hardware up front, 750 stop tech slotted in the rear to match and Hawk HPS 5.0 pads on all 4. I have always loved Racing Dynamics RD2's and when I found a used set pop up for a great price, I couldn't help it. Will now have 2 great sets of 19's to run and will likely do summer performance on the BC's and all season on the RD's.

    Really delighted to have been a part of this spectacular build. I recently got to drive this beauty, and man, it is something special. The S62 has fully refurbished and updated vanos, a fully balanced and blueprinted bottom end, fresh valve springs, seals and guides, all new chains, guides and tensioners, and WPC treated rod bearings. I look forward a long and powerful life for this one (dyno numbers would be good, too!).

    Thanks again for giving Dusty and me the opportunity to be a part of this.

    --Peter

    Thanks, Peter! It runs like a champ. I hope to have dyno numbers in the next few weeks.

    Thanks, everyone! A lot of people (who know me ) seem to think I will get bored and sell this one but it's the most perfect car I have ever experienced/owned and it's just going to get better. I know I tend to get rid of cars pretty quick but it's because I haven't found that one car that checks off all the boxes. I will definitely build another project as well but this is the one car out of 30 or however many that really does it for me the most. Even my dad who is a car nut as well said "This is the one".

    What did you pay for touching up all the rock chips on the front end and bumpers?

    He charges $65 to do a car at a location where he has other work. I gave him an extra $50 to come out to my house.

    It's insane how clean this car is. One of my favorite builds for sure. Hopefully my car will be this clean one day.

    Yeah, haven't touched the performance. I plan to do exhaust at some point but am happy with the car so really don't want to mess with the tune.

    Not gonna lie, I don't care for the BC Forged wheels. IMO the APEX looked the best, and I definitely liked the RDs more than these.

    Just being picky, obviously it doesn't take away from how amazing the rest of the car is.

    I appreciate it! The Apex looked good but I wanted a lip and didn't want to have to run spacers. These wheels have a similar design to the ARC-8 in general but the detail and lip/spoke design is outstanding. You really have to see them in person to truly appreciate them. It's all personal preference but I feel that I finally found the wheels I can be happy with. And the M pars of course..
