    So when is this hearing protection act going to go through is what i want to know. Im tired of waiting on suppressors because the ATF wants 200 out of something that is merely a muffler. Silencers are not like what they show in the movies and it would be nice to be able to hog hunt without worrying about if i should put on hearing protection or should i try to make sure a hog isnt sneaking up on me and sacrifice a little bit of hearing. I had a form 1 for my SBR'd Sig MPX returned in 7 days with a tax stamp last year. Its not even about a background check on these things. An automatic i can understand the extended background check, but suppressors and SBR's shouldnt be on a NFA registry. Anyone who plans on doing something illegal with these things can make their own with a couple of internet orders in less than a week.

    You have a great point that it isn't exactly cheap, so my goal is to try to figure out the required P/Ns and create a reference so we have all something to refer to if we want to do this mod. The easy part seems to be the M3 steering rack assembly, as this can be gotten for a reasonable price off a salvage or ebay M3 partout. What I am more curious about is the 1M power steering pump. Since 1M production numbers are quite low and it was only used on the 1M (as far as we know), the pump would be the expensive part as it would be sourced directly from OEM. Aside from the pump, what is actually required for this swap? Hope we can try to piece together a reference guide. I've pulled up the RealOEM parts diagrams, and see that the pump itself has pulleys and such, other parts around it. I wonder if we only require the pump itself, and can swap the pulley and other parts from the original 335is N54 pump. If not, I don't see it being too much of an extra expense, but would be nice to figure out more.

    Sweet! Our friends we had over that night just bought one too. I honestly doubt I'll ever cook steaks the same way again. If you think about the hundreds of dollars you'd pay for a meal at a nice steakhouse, this thing pays for itself quickly and the results are as good, if not better. I want to try tuna again - my wife was happy with hers (she likes her tuna well done - ugh), but for me, medium rare is closer to how I'd want my tuna steak. I thought I'd be OK with well done. I was wrong. I'll see if it turns out better (lots of folks online rave about using it for fish). -Rich

    Damn was worth a shot, I guess if all else fails you could always get something like this and part out to recoup costs. https://www.copart.com/lot/41055516

    Yea, we've already exhausted our normal resources (including that website)- which is why we're now asking on forums.

    It's basically how many restaurants make steaks. You place the meat in a vacuum bag and then use water immersion and a special tool (in my case an Anova) to hold the perfect temp for the doneness you want. Because it holds water temp exact, you can never overcook and the steak comes out juicy and super tender. It won't have any searing or grill marks, so most folks will quickly sear it in a heavy pan, grill or with a torch. Anova is a brand - they were a kickstarter - just got bought by ElectroLux for $250M. Here is some more detail: https://anovaculinary.com/what-is-sous-vide/ -Rich

    This seems like a great idea - has anyone accomplished this yet? Do we have any P/Ns for what exactly is required to make this work?

    Sort of related to smoking (low and slow cooking) - has anyone cooked sous-vide before? We bought an Anova last week and I made the best steaks I've ever done before with it. Absolutely incredible. Bought Choice NY Strips at Costco (not filets, not prime grade), cooked them for an hour using the Anova to med rare and then seared on the grill. They turned out like butter. We had (picky) friends over and they were blown away too. Tried tuna steaks the next night and I over cooked them - going to retry at some point. But the strips were incredible. Going to try pork chops, a prime rib and maybe even a brisket sous-vide/smoker combo soon. -Rich
