a friend who used to own a 72tii gave me a turbo unit from a mid 80's volvo (at least that's what he thinks it's from). says it's in good shape and he was planning to add it to his car but never got around to it. is it even possible to add a turbo unit to a 72tii (that's what i'm driving)? If it can be done i'll start the research to see what it would take.

seems to me that you would have an injector system or a turbo but not both. make sense or not?

to make the 2002 Turbo. They also ran 6.9:1 pistons and did a number of other things to make it run.

Is it wise, probably not. You don't have very good control of your AFR with a KF pump (at least compared to modern EFI), and there isn't any easy way to regulate your fuel squirt based on how much boost you have at the moment (throttle position is a poor indicator).

Keep your 72Tii stock, get a toy car, convert to EFI and then boost away.

Cheers!

not with a volvo turbo, but the 02 turbos are tii's with lower compression pistons and other "minor" modifications. Basically anything is possible with either time or money. I believe the best turbos have been the factory ones.

re-build I'd have to agree with John. If you have a tii...sort itout and drive the hell out of it. Michael is correct too. If it is a hobby you want and have the dough...anything is possible. Lack of electronics make turbocharging problematic

    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
