The car will live. I am searching for a new M/S52 longblock and swap it all back together. I wanted to go boost on old motor since it could handle some, but those plans have been shelved for now

Ouch. Sorry to hear that. I'm sure you will get it back together. Does the BMW enthusiast have an S52 to spare?

No we are working on a value of the motor right now. If any builders could chime in on the cost to replace/value of the motor it would be appreciated. He is a good guy and just want to be fair to each other. I've been looking but almost impossible to find a street motor with 20K on the bearings/all internals. The quotes from shops to rebuild have been high but engine building isn't cheap nor is any of the internals. Nothing can be reused Also cylinder #6 did not have fun.

Good you can work it out as opposed to the other guy who destroyed Tony's motor.

Good luck!

Wow sorry to see the carnage of a bad money shift. Frankenmouth fun little town for a foodie, my ex lives not far away in Saginaw. So needless to say I have been there lots of times.

Yes I am thankful that he owned up to it rather then having to battle it out in court. It's better all around and I hope by next week we can come to an agreement. I'll update the thread when I've figured out what next motor wise for the car.

Frankenmuth was a fun trip. Nice seeing all the older Volkswagen in a Bavarian setting.
