Analysis Done and Engine out !!

As you can see from the previous posts that I've managed to get ShereKhan's car and had a few ideas in mind....

-Drop an M5 V10 Engine in it
-Fix it and enhance the engine...

I went for the second option... but had to do analysis on the problem first and it is a bit surprising... note that the engine has done around 40K...

We found that the engine aluminum liners are cracked on all cylinders and have broken off in cyl 3.. and also that there is a small oil leak around the back crack oil seal (under the fly wheel) but that is irrelevant.

This is quite interesting on a BMW which has done 45k!!
