I recall speaking to someone a few months back @ http://www.ramflo.netfirms.com. I was informed that they are working on a SC for Weber(?) for the 2002. 1st out was to be a hookup for injection in Aug of 2003 followed shortly by a hookup to the M86 crossover manifold.

Anyone hear anything yet? I'm in need of a carb and want to go dcoe45 w/lynx but have been working on my re-paint. Would love to throw in a SC at the same time.

They will be lauching their new EFI kits in Las Vegas on November 4-7 at the annual AAPEX (Automotive Aftermarket Expo) convention. Once that event is over, they will put together the SC kit for the BMW 2002. Anyone near Vegas should stop by and see their booth as I heard that it is going to have lots of goodies.

I can't wait to get one of those SC kits on my car. Should be pretty awesome.

correction to what they are planning to do (at least this is what Paul @ ramflo told me):

... they are working on a.... EFI KIT .... for Weber. 1st out was to be a hookup for injection... DGV CARB REPLACEMENT .... in Aug of 2003 followed shortly by a hookup to the M86 DCOE crossover manifold.

Then they were going to make a SC kit for the BMW 2002 utilizing their new EFI kits (hence why they waited to make the SC kits) and they were possibly going to make a DCOE carb SC kit as well if their was demand for it.

Again, this is only what was told to me as I am also wating on the SC kits.

The rumors I've heard is the the EFI is a TB injection (ala cheep chebby) and there is no intercooler for the supercharger.

A third/fourth generation Roots or twin screw will give you +150 degress (F of course) of temperature rise on your air charge (this is from the Eaton site). Without an intercooler this is a big problem.

I hope the guys at Lynx do it right, I'm scratching my head ALOT trying to figure out the bits and pieces, but TB injection with no intercooler is a poor hack.

Cheers!

Putting the fuel in before the charger has some major benefits. Unfortunately an eaton supercharger will not last long with fuel running through it! It was not designed for this. I sure hope they are not planning on what you have suggested.

    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
