ok, I was home last weekend and I wasa able to drive the turbo. Here is the problem: The car drives like a champ with an awwesome power band when its warm, but once I've been driving it for a bit and it is warm-warmish hot, then I'll give the pedal a go and it will jump feeling like a misfire, and only when I floor it. I can put a 1/4 - 1/2 throttle into it and it does just fine, but when I punch it, it does its little skip hop thing.

What are you running for a fuel pump, how much boost and could you describe that problem better? does it go, studder, go? Any odd sounds? pinging? popping?

You recently fill up with gas?

I'm using a fuel pump that is overkill for the car. My duty cycle meter at no time excedes 75% and my A/F is dead on at WOT. I use 92....excuse me...91 octane fuel with one bottle of booster (good stuff). I run 10 psi boost. The car makes no funny noises besides the fact that it won't open up. It is fine 1/4 throttle to 1/2, but anything past that makes it feel like a misfire, no pops or anything, just as if a cylinder went dead...kinda halting...hmmmm

Doug,

Are you using the knock sensor from the ford efi? If yes then your probably getting your ignition pulled back, more I think about it the more I thinks its ignition related. How are you controlling the ignition, completely ford? You may want to check out a turbo ford forum and ask the same question.

    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
