What do the guards look like under the 2002 turbo flares?


Recommended Posts

What do the guards look like under the 2002 turbo flares? I assume they're chopped, but I've never seen a turbo with the flares off...

Also, what does the front clip look like under the turbo spoiler? Is there a slot cut so that the main hole feeds the radiator?

the slot in the front air dam is for the engine oil cooler

it does not feed air to the coolent radiator


black bracket is for the TOW HOOK

Thanks guys!

The Guards are as I expected, but the air dam holes go nowhere... odd? I know the round hole is for the compressor intake, but I'm surprised about the rectangular one. Mine is a twin round hole, so, maybe I'll make them brake cooling ducts, or perhaps fog light positions?

I'm assuming the little tiny hole is for a towing eye?

The center hole is for the oil cooler, the single round hole on the right side does not feed air the the Turbo air inlet. It ducts air through a 90 deg bend tube tha blows air ON the turbo for cooling. The air intake is a hole in the core support just ahead of te air filter housing on the upper right side of the engine bay.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
