Unless you have an old-style fuel pump that clears the manifold, you will have to get an electric pump and a pressure regulator. Also you will need some sort of linkage; Pierce Manifolds has good stuff. I went with a cable linkage kit from Top End Performance, which was somewhat overpriced, but works OK if you fiddle with it. Of course you will need some sort of air filter setup; the chrome boxes work OK, but be sure to get quality filter elements. You will need some sort of plumbing, like a T-fitting and some extra rubber fuel hose.

Don't forget your patience. Lots of it.

In addition to that, you'll need a) a water neck fitting without the flange sticking out the side towards the carbs, B) a metal water hose from a 320i that goes from the water pump towards the back of the block , and c) a water hose to go from that metal one to the heater. Oh, also, you'll have to decide what to do with the valve cover vent. I went with a small K&N but while that looks nice, it lets quite a bit of oil escape, making a nice film over most of the engine. I think some people use bottles, although ideally I guess you'd want it to go to the air filter.

For linkage, I took a trip to the bike store and used some aluminum plate to emulate the TEP linkage kit. I got the thickest brake cable I could get, a couple of other fittings, and it cost me about 10 bucks total.

i welded up the stock water neck and ran the hose straight to the rear using a plain ol pipe w/hose clamps as i didn't want to source the 320 parts at the time. worked fine.

I forgot about the water neck. I lucked out, when I acquired my sidedrafts I got a vintage TI water neck. But as the other post says, you can grind the stub off and block it. Or, a 320i neck works just fine.

As for the heater pipe, don' bother. Drink a few beers, meditate, and realize that: the 2002 heater really sucks; it leaks and rots the floor; it wouldn't keep the frost away from Georgia asphalt in summer; it takes up room; and the plumbing is a pain in the ass. Then remove the heater, sell it on e-bay for $125. Buy yourself some thermal socks.

Oh, and plug up the fitting at the back of the water punmp, and at the back of the head.
