Hi everyone,

Has anybody install early type M10 engine from E30 injection or carby into 2002?

Does the engine mounting from E30 engine fit without modification, and does it straight fit to 02 gearbox?

Couple of things to consider--

1.  you'll need a 2002 oil pan and oil pump, as the shape is different on the E30 M10 engine

2.  the distributor turns backwards from the 2002's so you can't (for example) use an all mechanical tii dizzy.

3. The displacement is 200 cc less than the 2002, and the DIN horsepower is almost the same, so you're basically gaining the improvement of EFI over a carburetor.

4.  You'll need to install an electric fuel pump for the EFI, and find a home for the Motoronics box.  Both are easy as this has been done many times with both an E30 M10 engine and the M20 six.
