oh shit i just replaced the headbolts, all 14, I got the old ones out no problem and the new ones went in ok at first, Torque them from the middle to the outside just like the OFFICIAL BMW mechanic told me in steps of 25 ft/lbs, 50, then 75. Fuck the middle one cracked at the top of the block before the head before i even got near 75 ft/lbs. I got so pissed, also after that i couldnt get any of the rest to torque to 75. They all just kept turning, not like it was stripping but more stressing and stretching the bolt. When i went around the block just now i revved up to 5k ( i know i shouldnt have but should have done a breakin again But i was and still am incredibly aggitated and pissed ) and on the release of the throttle I heard PING Then the oil can symbol light in the dash started to blink. Fuck i think im going to sell my car. I cant stand this, i think im going to cry. What should i do? Should i try and blame this on BMW? I did follow his instructions to the point. Also i took off a nice section of my ring finger when it cracked, I liked that section of my finger too...

well it may be time to get a new block fox. i dont know if you truly love your wheels...but if you do why would you sell it. im sure you can buy a block or whole engine assembly for your ride.

LoL i wish. Naw, whats gonna happens is Zotz (local bmw and porche specialist) is gonna take off the head, remove the bolt and put everything back together again. Also they are gonna replace the timing belt which needs it badly for it is very squeeky. While they have the head off im going to have them replace the cam to perhaps a 256 or 272 whichever is best. As of now im trying to find out if 272 is to aggressive to be a streetable. What do you think?

why not? I know you lose some lift but the longer duration should make up for it no? Cause i dont have the money to shell out for a 500$ new cam
