Methanol Injection Issues:

Yes, upon opening the final box which should have contained the remaining parts to my methanol injection kit, I realized that it was missing the controller & associated hardware. I texted the owner/manufacturer of my methanol injection kit immediately upon this discovery at 1100 pm his time last night. To my dismay, he called me back this afternoon infuriated that I texted him at such a late hour & demanding the return of his incomplete kit in return for a full refund.

Sheez, just what I needed...

That's Okay, Box it back up and send it to him. Guys like that dont need your good business. Especially if he wants to get angry at his or his companies mistake. I am a business man and whether its day or night. Money and good customer service is my priority.

Any other Meth Kits you were interested in from another brand perhaps?

In answer to your question: Not anymore!
Well, it was very close. Now, I have to remove the 3 gallon tank, the SS braided hose and manifold. I destroyed my intake during the removal & I just ordered assorted gaskets, etc. from my local bmw dealership in order to try and get this project back on track.

From my point of view and understanding of water/methanol injection, the ProMeth intake design is superior to anything else out there. Further, I already have the tank mounted, lines run, etc. My back is against a wall with respect to time. The going to get an AES controller and more or less wing it.

Sad to hear, But as always with BMWs there will be hurdles in the way. Just keep going brother!

It's slow but steady. This is a one man job. The most difficult part is the fact that nowhere exists a parts list for what I'm trying to accomplish. This project quickly turned from an engine swap into a performance upgrade and semi-restoration.

If the oil seals, o-rinds, additional fasteners (I decided to replace the ferrous fasteners also), and miscellaneous hardware arrive tomorrow, I should have all the ancillary equipment attached to the engine and the engine attached to the tranny by Sunday. Assuming I haven't forgotten anything else

The sub-frame restoration is taking much longer than I expected. Hopefully, I'll have the steering rack reattached to the sub-frame by Sunday night also.

If things go well, the power train will be installed by Tuesday. Then my vacation is over. All that should be left is the F?M3 bbk & mc which I should be able to finish up working a few hours per night on the car. I'll try and post up some pics of the motor tomorrow night

Good stuff brother, Take your time. Slow progression will be a greater outcome.

Is it ok to pull the torque converter off the transmission and empty it? I plan on changing the tranny pan and filter anyway.
