Rev limit ignition rotor #s


tjones02

Recommended Posts

Now, we all must know by now that one can get any number of aftermarket electronic ignitions that have various "soft touch rev limit" capabilities.

What I want to talk about here are the original old school spring loaded Bosch rev limit distributor rotors. All these rotors should work in all '02 dizzy types....

Original equipment BMW is 6600 RPM...

BMW #12 11 1 362 221

Bosch short # 04 141

Bosch Long # 1 234 332 280 or "208" as the last 3 #'s...

5800 RPM

Bosch short # 04 030

long 1 234 332 207

Volkswagen# 022 905 225A

6500 RPM

Porsche# 911 602 928 00

6800 RPM

Bosch short # 04 024

Long 1 234 332 199

7100 RPM

short # 04 028

long 1 234 332 205

Porsche# 911 602 925 00

7300 RPM

short # 04 029

long 1 234 332 206

Porsche# 911 602 929 00

WARNING!!! Please only use rev limit rotors past 6600 if your motor is built to withstand such RPMs!!!!!!

There were and may well still be 4500 and such limits available but there's only a few reasons to really use one of those.... If you let a son or daughter drive your '02, OR want to pull a prank on a friend. :)

Super Cool info!

Thanks for posting these (though I doubt I'll ever get one - it's nice to see the numbers researched and listed!) This should definitely get put into an FAQ archive / tech tip listing!

Hey Paul, think early 911, E T and S for the 6800, 7100 and 7300...

914 2.0 for the 5800

914 1.7 & 1.8 and Type4 VW's had 5400

While the lower ones are for various Type1 VW's

Ha, 4500 rpm, just thing to pull a prank on someone. ;b....

BTW for those in the Biz. IMC carries all the ones I listed... IMCparts.net hint type in 1 234 332 209 and you get "closest matches" which lists many various rotors...

I remember IMC being GREAT for Porsche stuff - but how are they these days with BMW items?

I need a 5 speed (auto = same) 2002 speedo cable for a project - and the thought of charging the guy $100+ for the thing just turns my stomach. Think they'd carry it?

These used to be avail. through the big wholesale warehouse places, but not so much now, I guess. :-(

    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
