Done this a couple of times. I time-sert the block every time I take a
m54 head off as it is really easy for DiY’er with a torque wrench to strip
Threads when you put it all together.

Do the coolant pipes and oil filter housing, CCV and Intake gaskets While intake is off

On the x5 I install head with exhaust manifold bolted on, and I remove the washer tank for better access.. I use an engine hoist to lower it in..a 2nd set of hands helps..

Elring gasket
