i have a stock 1.8 liter motor out of a 82 320i and im looking to upgrade the fi but i don't want to go full electronic on it like a mega squirt, i just want more fuel to the motor since i am eventually going to be turbocharging it, i think ive heard somewhere that volvo parts will fit on it to give it more fuel, but can someone explain to me what i can upgrade and where to get the parts thanks

I think the k-jet fuel distributors off turbo volvos or V8 Mercedes will work for fuel flow. That said, there is a reason most people go EFI; modified k-jet really is a patchwork thing at best; to make sure it doesn't lean out under boost, it will have to be set insanely rich down low. Personally, IMHO if you are going turbo (as I hope to) save the money to do it properly.

Just my $.02 on it

Update to 318i EFI, ljetronic. Works great and you can always upgrade to aftermarket EFI or MS. Ditch the kjetronic.

way back when....

folks would use a larger displacement motor

fuel distributor, and block off 2 of the injector

line ports. The trick is finding a fuel distributor

that delivers more fuel quantity per injector

at any given air flow sensor setting.

So fitting a 6 cylinder motor fuel distributor

on a 4 cylinder air flow housing

(see early turbo SAAB, early 240 VOLVO tubo)

and a different fuel pressure regulator also

needed for an altered warm-up regulation pressures -

during cold start, warm-up curve, and ending warm

motor pressure. ........... bla bla bla
