What to keep?

Hi! Names Olivier.  Been lurking around the side for a few months now, seen and read some really cool projects and info. I inherited a 74 2002 that had been hiding in the old man's garage for 20 years. Along side with a rotten 81 320i.   Just had a few questions as to what to keep if anything off of the 320 that could be used on the 2002. before I scrap the car.

The plan was to build a clean looking sleeper. Coilovers all round and really low.(luv the heist build)  Would like over 200hp and would like to keep the m10. (supposedly was rebuilt just befor it got parked). Would like to turbo it and always thought a pair of blow thru side drafts would be cool. 

So anything useful? Rear end, tranny, engine for build up, efi system.?

Im new to the bmw world but have done my share of motor transplants and builds 

Any input would be great, thanx

Just a comment on the "blow through side draughts" idea. Just sit down, pick up a small ball peen hammer and start hitting yourself right between the eyes. When it starts to feel good, you are ready to try pressurizing Weber carbs.

In other words don't even think about it. If you want ITB and Turbo that is fine but use fuel injection!!!!!!

Would like over 200hp and would like to keep the m10.

If the ball pein advice isn't your style,

then take the EFI hardware off the 320, buy a MS/VEMS, whatever,

find a mid- sized turbo, and start looking for an exhaust manifold that fits.

It's a project, but that's the way to get 200 streetable hp out of an M10.

That said, mine has 100hp, and I still like it just fine.

From the 320, keep the trans, diff, halfshafts, front part of the driveshaft,

and the mirror and clips that hold the sunvisors up.

If you search, you'll find there are probably a few more parts that work. But not

too many.

I did see a 2002 with a complete dash and AC panel transplant from a 320i a few years back at an 02Fest West. It was an impressive piece of work.

thank for the replies. i will strip and keep that stuff. as for the ball peen, i do have a few of them and i am kind of a sucker for punishment. but piont taken. From what ive read i kinda figured it would be more of a pain in the @$%# then worth.

i would keep the car for a while but kinda short on place and its really a eye sore.
