joshh is an unknown quantity at this point
Hey, I'm new to this board. I've been reading here for a bit but finally my friend sold me his 325e. I have alot of work to do with it.
He broke the timing belt while driving it. ghead
Yes it has several bent valves and may also need some new pistons.
Anyways, is there anything I should look out for beyond the usual with the rebuild of this car??
Thanks in advance.

Josh

Thanks, I bought the car so I can autocross with it. So the suspension and tires will be getting alot of attention.

I'll look into that. I'm still learning about these motors but I do know that with the little 4 bangers, you want very little or no back pressure.
