My brother got me some velocity stacks for a late birthday present:

Not that that’s going to get me spending money. However, the results of a compression and leakdown test will!

Cylinder #: 1 2 3 4
Compression: 120 120 120 130
Leakdown: 58% 58% 60% 96%

Perfect is 150, good is 140 and poor is 130, with anything below 110 requiring a rebuild, according to the BMW ’02 Restoration Guide by Mike Macartney.

But really, 96% comes from fucking nowhere, what’s up with that? Anyway, seriously, seriously looking at what to rebuild now. I know at least the head needs to be done, but once it comes out next week, I’ll have a better idea of what to do.
