Installation is being performed by a reputable BMW shop in Atlanta. The car is being kept inside at this time. BMW claims the previous engine damage was caused by my dropping a bolt or something when installing a charge pipe. Either way, it will be getting a stock engine and will be driven 800-1000 miles, have the oil changed, and a sample sent to BlackStone Labs for analysis."
...I figured but didn't want to assume. We all know it's a rare motor. For 36k I'd take the car with the blown motor. Looks like it's too late now.
