Hello all.

First off, I'm extremely dyslexic and suck at writing, it ain't getting any better than this folks.

I'm new to this forum, but belong to many other forums. I'm a performance driver and have been driving for 3 years through a performance driving school here. I'd love to race one day, but with three kids and no life insurance (cancer, was declined), I needed to play it safe.

Anyway I bought my first BMW in April. An alpine 95 e36 M3. Love it. But in sept I ran into motor problems on the track. The car had 105k on it and was in storage a year before I bought it. Past owner died of a heart attack and the family put the car into storage until they decided what to do with it.

I had no clue what happened to the engine on the track. I was told it was a money shift, but I'm not that bad of a driver to pull that off, plus it was on a straight away when it happened. After pulling the engine and looking at things, it turns out one of the springs or guides must have broken causing one value not to close. Crap!

Since I'm down to the block rebuilding it, I wanted to know if there was anything you did to improve the overall performance of the engine and drivetrain? I'm doing new pistons, rings, machining the head with new valves, springs and guides. I'm also looking at Turners stage III Cam kit. Doing a new starter, oil and fuel pump, lwt flywheel, and clutch. The only modification I made was the exhaust. I did AA track pipe. I don't want a turbo or supercharged.

I'm looking for recommendations or thoughts on:
Clutch
Flywheel
Turner stage III cam kit
Headers

Best.
