It came from Bavarian BMW Parts in Rancho Cordova, CA, which is probably the same place. No it did not come with an intake or OFH. I was aware that it would be an almost bare bones engine and went that route instead of buying one of their complete engines. I figured since I will be transferring over a lot of new parts from my old engine that this route made more sense for me. Plus I wanted to go through every single wire, coolant and vacuum hose in the old engine.Did you get your new engine from Barbarian Auto Recycling?
Don't the engines come with an intake and OFHG?
I wouldn't say it is that obvious because it looks to me like the coolant you see in the photo indicates a very slow leak because of the numerous dark and light colored rings as well as the lack of coolant towards the bottom of the engine block. In my opinion this photo only confirms why I needed to add an ounce or two of coolant a week for the last 10 months. Once I started loosing about a gallon of coolant per day leads me to believe more of an issue internally in possibly that same area.My first impression is "well, duh".
