S14 going in


Recommended Posts

Thanks all. This has been a dream of mine since I was 16. The goal is to keep the car looking as stock as possible including the patina (which I'm sure you can all tell from the photos). Mechanically the car is set up well for the increased power. The car has IE's Wilwood kit, and rear disks all running on a 320i single line master. Sway bars and H&R/Bilsteins with fixed camber plates for just a hint of added negative camber. Front subframe has been reinforced including strut braces front and rear. 


I'm going to have Patrick build me a 2.5" stainless exhaust out the stock exit (not a center exit). A discerning eye will probably be able to tell that something is different. I also need to give a shout out to Patrick for his beautiful fab work on the expanded M10 oil pan.

Last night Patrick and I were able to fire up the S14 for the first time. Beautiful feeling. We're getting down to the final list of items to hit. 


Fabricating the 2'5" exhaust

Fabricating a catch canister for the breather

Fabricating a new strut brace which doesn't interfere with the throttle linkage

A few other miscellaneous bits

Looking good. I'll be stopping by Patrick's tomorrow and look forward to seeing progress since I was there last. 


I bet bet you can't wait to get it out on the road. It wasn't easy being patient while Patrick was hard at work on my EFI conversion.

    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
