Different Pedal Assembly for 2002 EFI Conversion


Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

Does anyone know of a pedal box from any other car, or a gas pedal that works well when doing an EFI conversion on a 2002? I did buy a Jegs gas pedal that comes with a gas pedal and cable (which a lot of old classic hot rod cars use with EFI), but I'm wondering if there's something else that looks more stock BMW...

Well, you could go all electronical and use an E46 pedal- that's stock in every E46.

 

There isn't anything really that duplicates the stock setup, being floor- hinged and all.

Porsche and VW both used that method, but with a different execution.

Most people use the stock pedal and bent rod, and then modify it after it comes '

out of the stock box, and that works as well as anything.

 

I hate hanging pedals because working under dashes and in doors is crappy.

I dislike the pedal box because there's just not a lot of room down there.

Maybe I'll design something that hinges out of the console- but then,

where would all the air conditioning crap go?

Thanks for your input Toby. It sounds like you may have some engineering skills... Initially I thought the best way was to use the stock firewall mounting points and use something like what others have done, pictured below.

 

But no one has engineered anything and is selling any of these to any of us doing EFI conversions. I am going to install an ITB setup soon on my rebuild. In the meantime, my engine sits without an intake while I try to figure something out. I still believe that the firewall mount idea using the stock 2002 setup with an additional lever of some type would be the simplest way to go if (someone with some engineering skills), could develop something.

I've thought about trying to adapt the e30 pedal setup to a 2002, but it would require a lot of fabrication.

 

A few people have used tilton or Wilwood aftermarket pedal assemblies.

 

Most people just adapt the lever on the outside of pedalbox to use a cable.

If going electronic throttle, this one looks interesting because it rests on the floor.  The 02 floor angles up about 50 degrees.

A radiator shop is a good place to take a leak.

 

I have no idea what I'm doing but I know I'm really good at it.

I hate to be the “well actually” guy, but the 323/328 were drive by cable.  325/330 went to electrothingy.  
 
fitting the cable assembly may actually be an option.

Isn’t this what happens with an M42 conversion? Mine is cable and the pedal is stock through the firewall (as far as I can tell) I then have cable from there to the throttle body. I’m sure someone will tell me if I’m mistaken. I’ll see if I can find a picture of mine.

Not very good but the car isn’t with me at the moment.

I use a stock pedal and stock lever.
Just some stuff from a motorcycle shop and a couple of standard parts and a little bracket is all you need.

Why do you feel you need to change the pedals.  Are you doing DBW? 

 

This one below is like butter, and I haven't even adjusted the piviot point to give it a better throw. I installed a I.E gas pedal just to finish things off.

I used to have a hand brake cable out of trash bin (from Peugeot) - h/b cables lasts as long as the car as throttle cable :) Then went Tilton style b/box & E21 throttle cable.

 

M2 has S14 cable, a bracket welded to firewall & short rod from lever. Works too.

Thanks all for chiming in. I don't want to do DBW because that just adds more complexity. I suppose I just want the best stock looking, well functioning way to use the gas pedal that connects to a mount of some type that converts to a cable. I already have a great Lokar cable.

 

Anyone out there with some engineering skills that would like to contribute some time for all of us doing EFI conversions? Maybe we all need the firewall piece that converts the gas pedal push rod to cable...

    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
