Has anyone done an M30 rebuild?

    If so can you post some things to watch for (gotchas) and possibly even pics? Thanks.

    My mechanic did it on my E34 535i with the robust M30 engine. I know that he changed the timing chain and the (not sure if this is the correct name for the part) guides. He also changed the head bolts. As usual, a new head gasket set was necessary (blew the original one). The head was also "shaved" at a machine shop. I know you are asking for pics, but nobody has responded to you, so maybe some of this input may help.
