Engine love

Build028 1970 BMW 2002 M42 Restoration 154

The engine had already been swapped before being sent to us, so not much heavy lifting to be done here. It was running already, so all that was left was to clean up some of the under intake wiring, add various hoses for this and that, and make it pretty.

Powder coating the intake and valve cover does a lot to make this build look sharp. Especially with that wrinkled finish. Add a custom in house plasma cut coil pack cover, and you'll find yourself feeling a bit under dressed when you pop the hood. It's like a suit and tie only affair.

Not much to say here, but it sure is nice to see. To the untrained eye, these M42 engines seem like they should be in there from the factory.
