New Pistons

Just got my pistons from IE yesterday....beautiful! Oversized for 90mm bore and 9.5:1, I think they are gonna rock with a 292 cam and my weber 38. Fantastic pieces of machine work...can't wait to use them. It's nice to have an alternative to Maxsil....thanks Jeff.

I am VERY interested in how this new setup works for you. I've already got the 38 Weber and am considering exactly the same pistons and cam that you just got. Please email at RBenson685@aol.com when they are installed and have a few miles on the car, and give me the benefit of your experience. I'm particularly interested in driveability versus enhanced performance. TIA.

I will do it. It'll be a little while, as my block is just now getting worked over and my cam removal tool is in the mail today (looks like the head is the long pole in the tent). Anyway, if you are interested in a LOT of experience/opinion, do a few searches of the forum with keywords like weber 38 or 292 cam and read all the data. I spent the better part of half a day reading everything I could before I made up my mind. Sounds like this setup is VERY driveable (It better be, this baby is gonna be my daily) and with some luck, you can get 125-130hp out of it. We'll see, as I'm gonna dyno the beast before I plug and play. With the 5 speed and 3.91 LSD, I'm looking forward to some illegal driving.......

    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
