1972 2002: Now with Megasquirt/ITB Goodness.


Recommended Posts

I have about 9,000 pictures of the whole build. But for now, here's the finished product. Patrick O'Neil of Midnight Motorsport in Seattle did the work. You will notice many hand-fabricated pieces. I'm taking her out for a long drive tomorrow, but so far so good.

Hey, I'm also in Seattle. Thinking about getting a 2002 and doing the Megasquirt conversion. I'd like to check yours out sometime, see how it rolls with the conversions. Just realized we're both from TX too, moved up here from Austin a little over 2 years ago.

Ha! I moved up here 4 years ago from Austin. Drop me an e-mail and come check out the car!

Not too much has been happening while I've been preparing for a new motor. (NEW MOTOR!!!!!!!!!)

But anyway, when I ditched my old license plate frame with an integral license plate light, I mounted a crappy trailer light on my bumper. I never liked the looks of it. So, I bought a proper BMW Euro license plate light. I installed that today, taking the somewhat never-wracking step to cut a big-ass hole in my bumper. Here it is. Doesn't light the plate any better, but it looks pretty Sierra Hotel!

Love your set up.

What fuel rail did you use there and is the injector spacing the same as say, a stock 318i manifolds?

Great stuff!

Thanks for the compliment. I wish I could take credit! Anyway, the fuel rail is an extruded piece from Aeromotive (I think). It was about $45-50 on Amazon. The holes for the injectors were cut by a machinist to be in the exact spot for the ITBs. The fuel rail itself comes with no injector holes predrilled.

WOw, thanks. So what holds the injectors to the rails because usually the bosch style injectors have those little clips. Do you just drill holes and then push them up into the holes?
