Picked Up Some Interesting Parts. Thoughts?


Recommended Posts

I went to a mans house today who had posted in a local online classifieds that he had a few spare 2002 tail lights and turn signals. Turns out he had some other stuff that he wanted to get rid of.

Picked it all up for a good package deal. Guess I have to figure out how to install some of this stuff and what else I need. I wonder what the performance different will be.






I'm picking up a spare 2002 engine and transmission later this week from him.

Good haul Hellrot

couple a nice boxes o-goodies.


Do you plan to bolt those right on (after cleaning, rebuild etc)? And is your engine modded otherwise?


I ask because I've gathered that all that induction without other mods may not produce what you'd think it would. I think at the least you might need hotter camming, better exhaust, but I think, and others will correct if i'm mistaken, to fully realize those weber's potential an increase in compression may be needed. Assuming stock is not already high(ish). Maybe that's what the spare block is for? (wink


i have no first hand experience, tending to rock it stock myself. but that is only due to lack of funds and skill. this is just what I've read preparing for the big what if....


Also, did he say he used those on BMW? i ask because bayless (now Mid-west BAyless) deals with fiat and lancia mostly I think. On the paper beneath the rebuild diagram, it looks like it says Lancia in pen. Maybe those came from a Lampredi twin cam. Maybe a fulvia? It may not even matter. Cool looking intake regardless.


Anyhow those are my thoughts for what its worth.

Congrats on the loot.

I am quite excited with the goodies.


As it turns out he also has a spare m10 and 4 speed transmission with 60k Miles on them. I am going to pick them up this week. I think my plan will be to refresh that engine and install all these goodies on it with an ireland engineering cam. Then at some point I can just plop it in!

    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
