I'm very impressed with your work! Could I ask a few questions about the engine. What work has been done to it and what will be the spec when finished? What cam is that you've bought?

Cheers (I'm also planning to strip and rebuild a hot M10)

Thanks wizor!!!

The cam its a exact copy of the bmw 300º motorsport camshaft, i balanced the entire bottom of the engine, crankshaft, pistons. etc.

I increased the compression ratio a little bit, and i fitted double valve springs (inner and outer), also i`m going to fit an electronic ignition,sport exaust manifold , and an electric fan.

Another good idea its to fit a 02`s five speed close ratio gearbox.
