My '76 m20 MS '02 project, new updates!


Brent

Recommended Posts

I recently bought this car from my good friend Mike Koch, he had his own blog about the car, so I am going to continue it as I finish the car!

The car has a m20 with megasquirt ll setup, I am in the process of finishing the alpina style pedal box, but just finished building the exhaust and modified the cross member so the exhaust goes thru it!

Once I get the pedal box finished I can finish plumbing the hydrolics and finally move the car under its own power.

I will try to keep up to date on what is going on, I have been out of the 2002 scene for about a year but happy to have another one.

I just completed building the alpina style pedal box, it has the clutch and brake master mounted directly to it and highly reinforced pedals!

I finally finished the brake system and it seems to work very well, but I have not put it threw the paces yet, I also got my new deep dish 15x8" 0-offset wheels, installed the front air dam and modified a early rear bumper to fit and narrowed it to tuck up tightly to the body.

I'm still waiting for the turbo flares to arrive, but I will have them very soon and then start tuning and testing the car!

Yeah, he did nice work on the car, I just need to finish odds and ends, and the body and paint work!

I can build more of those cross members if there was any interest!

Hey Brent -

Excellent work on the exhaust, I'm getting close to that on my M20 project. Mike and I had been talking off the board occasionally, good to see that you'll be keeping us posted on the project and that Mike will get to see his former car when finished since it's still local.

I'd love to come by and take a look sometime. I'm just over in the West Linn area and could sure stand to see a M20 project that's almost complete.

Hey, Brent. Your car looks great! I was just wondering what master cylinder are you using for your brake setup? I am very interested in an Alpina type brake system. Thanks!!

The car now has a very good base tune on the MS and drives great, it is very snappy and quike, and the throttle response is incredible.

This is one of the most fun cars I have driven in a while!

Here are a few up dates and additions to the car!

I have since added e24 rear bucket seats and center console, made a custom spair tire delete (bead rolled sheet metal), finished the transmission tunnel and custom shift boot collar, painted and seam sealed all of the joints where new metal was added, sound deadened the interior and trunk, welded in all of the rear bumper holes and original exhaust cut out, and just been tieing up lots of little loose ends.

I have been driving the car quite a bit and it has been working excellent and has been a lot of fun to drive!

Here are some up to date pics of the car.

This car is effin pimp! There is no way, someone could rebuild a car like this for under 8k. Too bad you weren't around when I was looking for a mintgrun 2002 back in March!

Good luck with the sale( I wish it was mine)

    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
