Here I am! Thanks everyone for the compliments, its in good shape, and so are the mechanical except for a few leaks and preventive maintenance I have been doing and those are coming to an end soon.

So today I replaced the leaking m44 engine oil pan. Pics below. See what I did do was, on the 4 corners where the engine front/rear cases are joined, as the Bentley suggests on the 6 cylinders. Then I went a step further and put a small bead of red RTV after the gasket, around the edges of the pan, so it holds up well for another decade or so.

Its a simple process on the 4 cylinder; I have done it on the 6 cylinder and the 4 pot process goes a bit faster imho or maybe I am just very good at it. I dropped the front subframe which took maybe half an hour after getting the car up on jack stands, supported the engine later by my engine support beam. Once the subframe was dropped, I took off the pan; there are a few bolts on the dipstick side that are a bit fussy to take out, but overall you can have it all off in a two hrs at most really. Then an hour to clean up everything depending how much time you want to spend to clean up, my car must had gone to a few golf courses as it has a lot of mud under it that I am still trying to get rid of. Finally I put the pan back on, blue locktight it all. I'd say all in all a 4-6Hr job at most for those wanting to do it, very simple. Hardest part may be getting the darn steering wheel guibo joint back on, hence I left it for the day. Tomorrow I will do the oil filter housing as well.

On a Side note, I have finished building the supercharger prototype setups I was working on. Actually managed to fit the 1.4L SC14 roots supercharger that we use for our 6 cylinders, all while retaining the stock manifold! Making it the largest displacement supercharger fit on a M42/M44. I will go start a thread on it in the forced induction topic with lots of pictures and videos.
