    You can't rebore any BMW built after 1981 because they all have aluminum cylinders plated with Nikasil. The Nikasil is much harder than the rings, so at worst, you'll need to replace the rings and...

    That pop does sound like the sensor. That's good, they're cheaper than an ICU. However, the sensor, while a standard part, used to be available from Honeywell (via third parties like Newark...
