Awesome build. Love stuff like this, mostly cause I plan on doing the same prior to going FI lol. And for those saying simply trade in or upgrade, there's nothing better than the feeling of wrenching on your car and the satisfaction of projects like this. Again props awesome job.

thanks for you comments.
Yes its was my plan to upgrade to ms43 because of all of the goodies and the 330 is a more popular car. Also this is my first car and I have learned so many things from it maybe eventually when the 3.0 liter dies im going for the s54 and turbo lol

Hello ... congratulations for this project i have an infernal machine and very beautiful. good continuation, good luck and health.
so now I've registered but for some time that I follow your project, I am doing something similar but much softer.
