This is a photo of Jim Butterworth's engine. The engine came from a car which was purchased in
non-running condition. Jim originally thought he might fix up the engine and put it in his 2002 tii. But he
soon came to his senses and is now performing a full-up restoration of his E30 M3 along with a suitably
enhanced S14 powerplant.
The picture shows what a burnt exhaust valve looks like. It's not pretty. This cylinder would not have checked out
very well during a leakdown test 8^) This same cylinder head subsequently received the full Turner Stage III
treatment. I assure you it looked much better after that.
