  1. Still looking, and the pan got bent up too, so I'm looking for that as well. Along with the left rear quarter which is folded slighty.
  2. Yeah I yelled "WHAT THE FUCK" right when we got hit, got really angry for a second, and then realized things happen and it's fixable. I didn't even yell at the woman who hit us, even thoguh it was 100% her fault. Thankfully she has insurance and they will cover it. If they try to total the car though for a fraction of what it's worth (which insurance companies love to do) it will be a battle. It's probably able to be pulled out, a good body guy can perform miracles, but a replacement panel will be a lot easier and cheaper in the long run.
  3. Oceanside driveline did a great job with my E30 driveshaft, rebuilt and balanced
  4. If everything else is fine, then grind away the valve cover where it's hitting, 2 gaskets will probably leak.
  5. You could try a knock gauge https://www.summitracing.com/parts/cei-102001 or google "det cans" if you want a super cheap, manual version. It's basically headphones attached to the motor.
  6. I'm pretty sure at least one of the rear head bolts shafts has oil in it from the rocker shafts. The shafts have a little passage in the notches that align with the head bolts, and I'm assuming oil goes through that hole since the shafts have oil in them.
  7. The distributor housing above that could be leaking oil, have you made sure it's not coming down from there?
  8. Thanks for the replies. I'm planning on modifying the mounts and piping so it goes in the cutout, I'm just wondering if it would look awkward if the pipes are too large
  9. I need a muffler for my 2002, and have always wanted this Ansa system with the dual tips. https://www.ebay.com/itm/For-BMW-2002-1973-1976-Ansa-BW0227-Rear-Exhaust-Muffler-Assembly/283531952593 When we did the bodywork and paint on the car, we made a cutout in the middle of the rear panel for a dual exhaust, but I don't know if it's big enough for the Ansa exhaust So can someone please measure your tips and let me know what the size is so I don't waste money buying this and having it not fit? thanks!
  10. Thanks for the help everyone, I ended up going with these pistons: https://www.maximillianblog.com/blog/10-1-mahle-pistons-for-2002s 10:1 Mahle and I shaved the pop-up down 2mm. Since the head is decked pretty far and the block was decked too, I went with the .3mm thicker headgasket too. According to my rough calculations I'm around 9.2-9.6 : 1 compression. Motor is together I installed it and got it running on the weekend. SO HAPPY
  11. Where in LA are you located? Do you ever get down to San Diego?
  12. That is good, or good enough to rebuild
