Real 2002Ti With Weber 40Dcoe19


Recommended Posts

I am getting ready to order new venturi's and jets. When I bought the car it came with the wrong set up... 


29 Venturi

4.5 Aux Venturi

115 Main Jets

200 Air Correction 

35 Pump Jets


This would make for a super lean air/fuel mixture but the way the previous owner made this work was by opening the choke and providing more fuel that way... I know this is crazy but I am going to fix this. I need advice on venturi sizes... keep in mind that it is going on a real, numbers matching 2002ti... I wanted to use the recommended sizes in the following blog (http://www.bmw2002faq.com/topic/104213-dcoe-40-jetting-recommendation/?hl=venturi+dcoe#entry244158) it is the K206 conversion kit but not sure if it applies for the 2002ti... Please help... 


Thank you,



1970 BMW 2002ti

Your main venturi looks a little too small.  34mm ones may work better.


This has some good baseline information.  Document courtesy of Phil Ackley (Alpina Modified 2002).

Pierce Manifolds just released a new Weber DCOE "advanced tuning" DVD. It may not be on their website yet, gives some good info. The Alpina specs Jim posted are a good start but how you set the carbs up really depends on the engine and intended use. Is it primarily street or track only? Do you have stock cam and compression ratio or has it been modified? All of these and more affect what you will do. As Mike Pierce stresses in his new video, having a wide-band AFR is indispesible if you are doing your own tuning.

Alpina used TDC ignition timing for normal 2002?

This was for a stock 2002 not an Alpina motor with cam and higher compression. The Alpina motors used 3-5degrees advance.

Im asking because all cars equiped with webers should have around 15° advance at idle...

I've been patiently awaiting a response on your comment, Blaz. I have a MM Hi-Flow with '45's and about 10:1 comppression, tii dizzy set to 34degrees total advance, which results in an idle advance (@ 1,000 rpm) of about 4 to 5 degrees. I have a slightly heavier spring combo for the advance weights to keep detonation to a minimum in the 2k to 3K range (i.e. I have it flat as a pancake up to around 3k). But still, 15 degrees advance at idle would probably put my total advance at red-line at about 45 degrees. Yikes.

Lots of different views on that, and sort of like buying shoes. I'd search the Forum for "DCOE jets" or set-up or tuning. I wouldn't start drilling holes quite yet. What have you got in there now? Properly adjusted, it should idle lower than that. Key is midrange transition, about 2500 rpm.

First thing, where did you end up on timing advance? I spent a lot of time hunched over my carbs when my problem was not enough advance. Depending on head work, cam , CR and distributor choice, your setup looks a bit rich (choke and main). I assume you don't have an Alpina engine attached to the carbs. Also critical to get mixture screws nicely adjusted at idle. I'm running 30mm and 125. Prob could go 32MM. 55F8 sounds familiar - f9 is an alternative.

    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
