318i starter valve on an 02


Recommended Posts

I am converting to EFI, 318i manifold. The kit I got from FAQ has a block off plate where the srater valve goes. Anyone running without this starter valve? How does it work without it?

You talking about the fast idle valve? Mine isn't installed, so I just have the set-screw on the throttle body set for correct idle. Works ok, but the car sometimes idles INSANE Slow. I'm working on rectifying this issue because I think it's good to have some idle control. :) Even using the stock 318i item is good, although I'd prefer the later stepper motor style fast idle.
