So keep up a good work!
Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

Is this head welded? I see strange things in the combustion chamber of cyl-5.

And how did you open the oil pressure regulator valve? As far as i know it's not possible to disassemble this part.

Oh, and that securing plate that holds the two shafts for the camshaft followers doesn't look OK either. Did you use the one in the photo's?

Ok, in that case great news! What kind of valve cover is that? This one has the lump on it in the middle, with the two holes. As far as I know, the 323i ove is smooth, with only the vent pipe on it??

See my topic, Dutch one, on page 120.
