Needs List (incomplete) :
New home :) Have another project ready to come out of the garage and sadly just need room
Transmission needs to be rebuild: on full throttle slips in 2nd gear, regular driving - no notable transmission issues
Proper tune, currently it has a Speed Density tune - was given help from fellow co worker how to tune it and that's how it is.
     Never tuned it properly since transmission needs to be rebuilt.
I had a/c before cam swap, then moved engine 1/2 inch forward and then the hose for expansion valve to compressor was too short.
     Now.... I see it was an easy fix, but I already re used the old parts instead of just putting  hose splice in :(
Paint Job
Wheels have been separated, cleaned, failed clear coat from the barrels has been removed with aircraft stripper and not re-cleared.
    wheels have a chalky dull finish now :( takes a lot of polish to get them back to shiny.
Headliner needs to be redone
Headlight assemblies are OEM halogen, retrofitted with FX-R projectors and covers have been replaced with ebay euro style years ago, and have yellowed.
All 4 door brakes are cracking - needs to be replaced
All ABS sensors are probably original and the plastic/rubber is falling apart along with wire insulation / copper wire is exposed

Additional parts included:
Used rear sub frame - I bought incase I changed the rear diff mounting bracket
Used (black) trunk - paint in good condition, one minor dent
New A-pillars
New B-pillars
New front door vapor barriers
Stock BMW 528 rear bumper (removed when the OE rear M5 bumper was installed)
