I need one more heater hose in place before I fill the coolant and start my engine. What do people do to connect the bypass pipe to the heater core? I have the later 18mm heater inlets.

I'd have to look at my car with the tii pipe to confirm which hose I used, but that 320i pipe appears to end up near the same place (I'm thinking it was the tii hose, IIRC.)

BTW, in those pictures your car looks great!

But one thing I see is your inline plastic fuel filter looks like it's installed backwards. Check to see if there is a directional arrow on it.

Normal flow thru that type of folded paper element is from the outside to the inside, as that presents the greater surface area on the "dirty" side.

It is in backwards and not a surface issue, but rather the paper will burst. But before that because it is in the pump suction side, will give cause for vapor lock. Pulling gas below atmospheric pressure will cause it to boil. Filter should be under pressure.

I wouldn't have caught that on my own.

a smaller angle (45° so) rather than the 90° of the 320 part. I can't seem to find a picture of a tii pipe and hose in a car, which would help immensely.
