Talking

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.

Rudolph now has a Remus exhaust. After much run abouts I found a shop willing to try.Glad thats done.

Good news is here is the supercharger thread as promised
http://www.318ti.org/forum/showthrea...ewpost&t=44651

Bad news is that I hit a speed bump at 10km/hr along the way between shops and right away and since then the car has been bogging down, didnt find any exhaust leaks but the codes I read point to a cam sensor.

Will be looking into it along with the fuel lines, no vac leaks. Fingers crossed that is what it is.

How did the twin tips fit? Did you have to cut anything out or swap to the 323ti diffuser?

Wierd that it bogs just from a bump - I have hit many bumps in my m44 when I put 80k on it with no bogging from hitting bumps!

Well it had a msports diffuser or maybe whats called a 323ti one? (sorry still new to the ti ) So what I did was cut it a bit, sand it down a little, passes the 1 foot test - Its also got some custom ribs on the diffuser that I put on. Credits to Moron95 on the Bimmeforums who did those years ago for my other car.

Totally weird, I have bumped so many cars, bmws included, we have horrible bumps on our roads but as soon as I bumped with this one, it just went.. I wonder if the cam sensor was already on its last leg and just the coil inside gave up or something?? I really really realllllly hope so. Fingers crossed.. I have done all the maintenance on this car, and I am going to get really busy from next month so if the cam sensor doesn't do it, I dont know what will.
