    hello, i currently own an e36 325i (m50), i have recently come by a 2001 m54 twin vanos 2.5 litre engine and am going to rebuild it, with a large turbo in the plans. i hope to buy another e36 and build a car for the turbo'd m54. the engine is not without its problems, namely the head, the previous owner had a damaged radiator and cooked it, so it is warpped (by how much i'm not sure, i plan to survey it, hopefully tonight). i have been quoted £260+vat for staightening, valve seat cutting etc ( reconditioning), is that fairly average? does anyone know of a particularly good machine shop in the herts/beds area? the wealth of information available
    on this site is staggering and i'm sure will prove incredibly helpfull in the construction of my project, and of course i will help anyone elses project along if i can.

    As you live in Luton then regarding tuning it may be worth speaking to these guys and seeing if they can recommend anybody for machining http://www.evo-s.co.uk/
