Ya the collector value is lost as itís no longer stock. But the SC does have some value. Still a high asking price but itís better than the Dakar 424K pos for almost 10K. What a joke. People see...

I would be cautious of a $700 N52 and it'll still need the typical BMW items such as gaskets, WP ($250 for N52) etc. Check around for other motors on other forums.

Rallycross is entirely different on a shock than extreme street/track driving. That's why serious offroad shocks almost all have external valving and/or built for that application. Think of what the...
