Wow, I have never seen such a clean, rust free vehicle! (I never really looked under a vehicle until I bought an 80 a few years back LOL).Under coated the Tacoma today. In prep bought myself the 29 gallon 2hp compressor from HF. It gets really good reviews and didn't want to spend twice for a name brand when it probably comes down the same assembly line as this one. I used WoolWax and bought the 2 gallon pro kit that includes a nice gun and 2 containers. The guy is on here as a vendor (I think) and posted up a Mud discount coupon. The Tacoma only needed about a half gallon but I plan to spray the 80 too eventually. Unfortunately only cleaned off the FC mud today so couldn't spray it as well. It's pretty rusty though so might not until I can media blast under there first. Next time I do this I'm getting one of those full body Tyvek suits to wear. The WoolWax doesn't drip but the overspray falls to the ground and rolling around under the truck will get you covered in a this layer of the stuff. Luckily this stuff doesn't smell bad like FuildFilm. All in all I'm happy with the results.

What is it doing?Just exploring the world of Instagram. Started my build story and will be adding little by little as I locate photos taken of my journey from then until now. If you're interested: m_i_adventures
Oh, also sill throwing parts at a speed pulsation (not a vibration or wobble).
So far have replaced: Wheels and Tires (balanced checked twice now), Steering Stabilizer, Front Shocks.
About to Try: Replacing front sway bar rubbers, rebuild parking brake (hear they can get sloppy), rebalance at a different shop, re-align front end.
Wish me luck......
I had to do the high pressure fuel pump on my F25 a few months ago. I hate working on newer BMW, especially if the intake manifold has to come off.
I feel your pain. I couldn’t even get the intake completely off, that’s why it’s propped up in the picture. There’s one of those impossible to remove BMW electrical connectors on the rear of the intake that I can barely see. I gave up before I broke it and decided the intake didn’t actually have to come off for this jobI had to do the high pressure fuel pump on my F25 a few months ago.

I cracked that connection, but it still works. I had to unplug it to install my JB4 tuner. I also upgraded the boost and charge pipes as well as the intake. It's definitely quicker now, and I haven't even changed it from the stock map.I feel your pain. I couldn’t even get the intake completely off, that’s why it’s propped up in the picture.

Did it tell you it was out or was it like other diesels and you discover that the first cold day when it won't preheat and you have to coke it up to start it.I replaced a glow plug module (hell) on my e70 x5d yesterday , and took a little trip to Reddish and Flagpole Knob on Monday.
Pulsation starts at about 42mph then smooths out around 55; comes back around 70mph. It's a shake I can feel at my feet and can see the hood jumping. There is no vibration coming through the steering wheel, it`s movement that takes over the entire vehicle but moreso the front end. Also less apparent the colder it is outside. As the truck gets up to temp the pulsation is more aggressive.What is it doing?
