definitely do the downpipes only if your state doesn't require emissions inspection or rock out without a sticker (or buy one).

i found o2 extenders with mini cats on it from (very exciting)

ill probably get DP, these o2 extenders and their exhaust system once im closer to re-assembling the engine in a few months.

Threw the dreaded 30BD requiring DME replacement. Figuring that a bad fuel injector was the culprit, I've begun the repair of replacing all of the coils and fuel injectors. Getting these injectors out is a true PIA.

Here's where the meat of the story goes.

My car is worth maybe $12,000 at trade and $15,000 private sale running. I'll be looking at turbos and valve stems in the unknown future. I love the truck and if replaced would get another one, just newer.

My friend is a BMW technician and has offered to take the car to the shop and as a side job, pull the engine and replace every gasket and seal. Replace the turbos and valve stem seals. I've already done all of the oil cooling lines. Bascically make this engine ready for another 100,000 miles. Probably in the $8,000 range.

So, is it worth another $8k (I've just spent $1k on the new dme and $2700 on inectors and coils) on a $15,000 car. Or just get it running and see when it dies.

I would probably get DPs while the engine is out.
