Korman's shop is between me and some friends so I stop by to check on the build and see what they're up to with other cars. I'm never disappointed.

Here's my engine in mid build. Look at all those pretty new fasteners.

One guy bought a E30 and loved it so much he bought a second to mod. It says 318is...but that's a E36 3.2L M3 motor and the car is sitting on a E36 M3 suspension

Back to mine, they said the engine should be in my car by next week, followed by a VERY specific break-in with different oils along the way. I LOVE how specific and exacting they are. They will be working on any new projects too complicated for me in the future.
