WHat kind of performance mods can I do that smoggers won't notice. I have a 76 02 subject to San Francisco smog laws but I want to add some performance upgrades that a visual smog check won't notice. Does an electric fan make any difference? MSD box or Crane will they fault me for those? What if I move the battery I realize some of this doesn't seem like it would make a diffrence but I've already faught these assholes for some crazy things. He wouldn't pass me unless I put a mark on the pully at top dead center.

Fan delete and the Crane ignition system would yeild some improvements without increasing exhaust emissions. A proper tune after the ignition systen is installed would be helpful as well.

You may also look into a smog legal 32/36 Weber.

The MSD ignition is a good item. You can fire off a leaner mixture with it and that helps the dreaded "lean miss" that bombs you on HIGH HC's for your smog test. It also has the seal of approval from the California air quality board. A pertronix is also a good item as your timing won't drift as the points wear with the setup. By the way the timing will also remain set where you put it after you "verify" your timing after the test.

Question is how long will the MAN allow H2O to be emitted from our engines?

    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
