Not good-

Y'know- little known fact- the short block on E36 M3 (U.S.) motor is not entirely even (flat)!!! I had to have mine machined for a completely flat surface for gasket.
Get steel one from A/A- works much better. May also want to drill out head/block stud holes & goto 11MM studs.
Have Stage 2 w/more stuff than most folks can imagine; 40K+ miles w/turbo.
