I think I would have had a look inside that #8 cylinder to see what damage has been incurred.

It looks as if you did not replace your knock sensors hence the long black lead hanging down in front of your engine on the 5-8 side in front of the thermostat cover. If your knock sensors do not work, your timing will automatically retard 3 degrees(ie your engine will not run as you are expecting)

Got to find someone with a bore scope. I repaired the knock sensor connectors and reinstalled them.

13 hours of driving and $1200 yielded a 1987 928S4 parts car. It痴 largely complete except for front seats ECU and rear spoiler. It came with very clean D90s and what appears to be 91 muffler, leather dash and door cards. Now got to wait for the snow to melt before I can get into it.

Just the price of the headlights and foglights would make it a good deal.

What is it going to be like to get the end product to pass vehicle inspection? Isn't that really hard in Japan?

Wow! That's a really great question.

I'd also like to see more pictures of the 3 gauges in the console of the parts car. What are they?

Actually the Japanese inspection is mostly a tax grab. The hardest part to pass is the headlight aim. I知 serious. Oil leaks, bald tires, worn brake pads all ok. All I need to do is fill out some papers to indicate the engine swap. I値l probably sell this car cuz I need the money. There is another 928 nearby waiting for its owner to die. Sadly the sunroof was left open and it has a hit on the right rear. Come to think of it is should keep this one and sell that one.

I have seats but shipping from SoCal to Japan will be very expensive.

Pushing the roller around at night on gravel in partial snow yields better pictures!! And a more comfortable work space. Less chance of me dinging my neighbors drift car.
