I've started the work on my turboengine. My plan is to use the tii intake manifold, and rebuild it with EFI. Haven't seen this done before, so i'm curious to know.

I have heard some done it, biggest issue is to fit the injectors. some have refabed the fuel rail.

I went to 318 intake, wich dont require any mods at all.

try looking at Nick Vyse's website links... sorry I don't remember more... other than the guy said it was a collosal pain in the arse.

My take on it would be to sell me your tii parts at a handsome profit, then go the 318 route and save a lot of money, hassle, and time, and have a setup that's easier to work on and easier to modify if you wanted to.

And that way I could put the tii bits on the race car, drop a class, and be more competitive...

and it's fun to do something a bit unusual from time to time. And most of all: I think the tii intake manifold looks much better than the 318 on this car.

and the 318 looks more modern,

(not really right)

but after messing with early 320 manifolds (which are pretty much the same style) I decided that the fiddlyness and difficulty of working with the things just wasn't worth the hassle... for a daily driver street car.

For a project, yeah, make it look the way you want it to!

but I heard about it from Pete McHenry.

I did it in 2002 with megasquirt efi, but now I'm running megasquirt II with Ford EDIS/COP programmable ignition control.

Pete had an article in the October 1992 Roundel magazine, (quite a while ago !) describing how he did it with a e21 320i intake and a M10 e30 ('84-'85) L-jetronic efi system.

click on my link above for a few more pics.

Your project looks great!

Check my page to see the result. http://personal.inet.fi/cool/grt/

Go to Streetmachine -> Megasquirt

It wasn't that difficult but fitting the fuel rail was really tight and injector holes had to be drilled and rebushed. I did it all just to make it look little more like original tii.
