Anyone wanna go historic racing?

If you have a yearn to participate in historic racing, here's a fully restored Group 2 tii...and it can be yours.  Nice article, very cool car.  What's not to like about a non-turbo tii with 190 hp on board, with the suspension and brakes to match.

Love to know how they got 190 bhp using the standard plenum… oh wait might be a typo, perhaps it’s 109 bhp😜

Maybe they calibrated their dyno with Shetland Ponys?

That's not homologated, so, no.  You'd lose that protest.

240 bhp.  At the crank.  Of my truck.

190hp ??  Possibly.  Have any of you picked the memories of either Miller&Norburn or Korman from back in the IMSA-RS

days?  190+/-  probably.   G.H. Sharp had M&N motors.  He was right up there too.

Agree, with super high compression, big cam, exhaust, PUMP etc. very plausible.  I can tell you for the short (very short) period of time running a sport 300 on my tii it was very fast, honestly it felt faster than with the A4 injection.  It didn't idle below 4k, but from 4-7k look out.  That is the cool thing about the Alpina system, idles at 800 and SMOOTH power on up to 7k, easy, fun to drive.  A standard tii injection set up with big cam, would be challenging and probably not so much fun to drive around town.  My opinon (based on some personal experience).

A standard tii pump won't run with enough cam to make 160bhp.

Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see any mention of a racing pump.

 

Gordon, feel free to correct my number!

 

I can't get 190 out of a 2L 12:1 motor with 45's- but Byron can.

His piston is more domed than mine...

I didn't see any mention of a dyno sheet.

Two running things. Two broken things.

    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
