    He is using new stock retainers since they are stronger than the titanium retainers. Haven't looked into guides or tensioners yet, I'll do that now.

    They are getting the head gasket from VAC. I'd love it if Mike would come chat. I have a lot of parts from them on this car.

    Yes the stockers will last longer. There is no real need to talk to VAC they may start selling you many over the top unneeded products(not a shot at them, but thats what happens usually with most companies). Some people like the new sun belts, EVO sport cams, or the schricks. The Schricks will not can you the most power, but will give you a little better low end tq for the street.

    What cam would you suggest? I was looking at the sunbelt cams, but I haven't yet decided if they are worth the price. They are clearly more aggressive though.

    This is not true Click here to enlarge We stock and sell more BMW engine internals than anyone in the world, so the collective knowledge base is pretty strong - people call us for that reason. Well, and the fact that we usually have everything engine related in stock. (including stroker cranks and other expensive stuff)

    OP: Sorry I have evidently been under a rock and totally missed this boss thread. Can you email me at mike@vacmotorsports.com or PM me a way to contact you?

    People like the sunbelt 2's for track cars, and some like the sunbelt 1's.

    Seems a bit high though, do you think that is a fair price for used cams?

    So I'm buying the sunbelt cams (assuming the guy responds) and having Jordan tune the car. Hopefully I can make some good power.

    I think they are like 1700 new or something retarded like that. You could always go for schricks they go for about 600-800 used, and about 1100 new. I don't think they make the top end power like the sunbelts.

    Yeah, the shop my car is at has a set of schricks for $800, but I really want these sunbelts. I'll post an update if the deal goes through.

    P.S.

    I will now be selling all the panels that I have made for my car.

    Door panels, trunk panel, center console panel, glove box panel, heater core delete panel, and radiator panel (for guys who delete the AC).

    It's nothing big, just trying to make money solely to put back into the race car. I have purchased the domain and I hope to have the site up soon and start getting a few orders. While I will be very busy with school, this should be a nice little thing I can do with my spare time to make a little money.

    Yeah, just trying to get some soon. The new cams will require injectors and a tune. Hoping for ~255whp.

    Well, the car is at Autobahn South and they've already started tearing it down. The car was leaking coolant at the rear left corner of engine due to a worn out head gasket, so it is being replaced with a VAC multilayer gasket. While the car is apart, sunbelt stage 2 cams, supertech valve springs, and a new tune will also be installed. I can't wait to get the car back on the track and see how it runs!
