    Love your build so far, thank you for all the info!! Will be starting mine soon as my car is back from the paint shop. Question on the steering column, is there any change in steering quality or feel going to that telescopic column you are using?

    Ruly: We haven't progressed as far as we would have liked. But it appears we have a real start date in 2 weeks.

    Steering shaft: not so much the column...just a thinner shaft to gain extra room thru the headers. Believe it will be similar to OEM (understand and E46 shaft can also be used although don't believe it is thin as the one we will use). This is based on others experience...of course.

    Thanks.

    Happen to find myself in Virginia where a fellow M3 swapper lives. Chris put a thread together on Grassroots Motorsports where I've been following. He was more than accommodating showing the car...goldmine if info considering his obvious success at not only a running example, but one that is a rocket!

    Big kudos to his workmanship and exercising the 383 powered car. Certainly got my blood going...perfectly timed as we are about a week out from tear down of our own M3.

    Thanks Chris!
