      So an interesting event occurred today:

      I shipped the ECU out from my job to Eurodyne in Canada. My company provides nuclear power products internationally and government defense products to the US. Canadian customs rang up my boss today asking why they were receiving a package for Eurodyne with an invoice for a nuclear valve going to Korea. Seems like paperwork got mixed up and I've become the start of a running office joke.

      Guess my Canadian bound packages I'll pay full price for in the future...

      haha yea it was an adventure. Still hasn't made it there yet even though it was schedueled for delivery today.

      Today got another cluster in the mail. My old one's gas gauge didn't work and it was really super special in the winter- wouldn't function for about 5 minutes. Just crossed my mind how do I change the milage amount on the cluster?

      Aside from this ordered some other toys for inside the car including an A2DP setup.

      Cable and ECU are on their way back to me!

      ECU checks out, cable needed some repair- a big thanks goes out to Eurodyne's Chris Tapp

      Now to try and squeeze my car into Force Fed for some intercooler piping and hopefully after that I can finally drive this thing...

      Good news, remember the be anal about the brake-in procedures this time and re-torquing the head (don't put it on the dyno even if it's tempting). I can't wait to get my hands on it to squeeze some power out of maestro on a corn fed BT.

      Any motor break in procedures/advice? Fluids to be used/changed and when?

      Most I have seen and I used myself was non syn oil and run through the rev range to get good heat to seat the rings properly. Limiting the revs may keep you from getting a good seal. A hundred miles later, change the oil still with non syn again for 500 miles then back to full syn. There is also break in oils you can try.

      Yep, that's the way to do it!

      Just did front control arms on the BMW. First side took hours then second about 30 minutes. Nightmare.

      While I did that AAA picked my car up and now I'm going to see it at Force Fed. Intercooler piping should be getting done or at least started today. I'm sure there will be photos to follow.

      I've done these on the race car at work several times and they are not that bad with the right tools and some practice.

      Yea I learned that. Had to buy a ball joint popper fork and use a sledge hammer hard a bunch of times to remove the balljoint. Second side I got done in under an hour.

      IIRC to change your cluster mileage the dealer has to do it.
