  1. It took me a long time to use tapatalk, but once I signed up for it I checked it 8 or 10 times a day. Tapatalk encouraged me to participate much more in in the FAQ and fortunately, or unfortunately led to many purchases for parts that I would not have otherwise made. Apparently I missed Steve’s request for comments on Tapatalk or I would have strongly expressed my use of the app. I miss tapatalk and would encourage that the FAQ sign up for its use again. My mailbox is so full of useless emails that I have to spend a long time cleaning up my mailbox.
  2. Best inertia switch source is from any Ford product. The inertia switch is located on the drivers side kick panel or in the trunk.
  3. I know they are not on your list, but Jim Rowe at Metric Mechanic does a great job with 2002 cylinder heads. Recommend that you also consider having your head rebuilt by Metric Mechanic.
  4. It is amazing to see the prices for cars with questionable VIN’s. It makes those of us with matching VINS on all 4 places as built feel good about our cars although I doubt most of our great 2002’s will ever sell for this kind of money. I am surprised that no one has discussed the Schwartz 72 tii with 5 speed also currently listed on BAT. Someone has spent BIG BUCKS on this car with good Metric Mechanic stuff, but the body integrity appears to be questionable. It looks like an unfinished project car. Photos of the body before the driver quality repaint would help a lot for determining value. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  6. These are great! Highly recommend. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Everyone seems to use H&R springs with HD, NLA shocks and not the Sports. are there issues with running the Sports and H&R springs?
  8. Interested. I installed H&R springs on my ‘76 with bilstein Sports and liked them a lot. What did you replace the H&R’s with? what shocks? i am currently running Miller and Norburn springs with Bilstein Sports shocks.
  9. Yes, you will need the water bypass piping as you are replacing the entire intake manifold. You will also need a tii or e21 water manifold to replace the one you currently have installed as yours has a fitting to connect back to the intake that is not needed. I tried some of the linkage workarounds described but ended up using the TEP linkage. With those linkages, gas was either on or off and power came on so quickly it was scary. Installing the TEP linkage is just like installing brakes on a bicycle. You just need to shorten the cable housings about half to reduce cable length and all will be well. Have fun!

  10. I gave mine away to someone that had worse seats than what I had. He was very appreciative. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. What Steve did cannibalizing an old OEM radiator was what I did with my W&N radiator. I just have not installed it yet Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. It’s only money! Remember the mantra: I don’t hang out in bars, I don’t chase wild women (anymore), I just play with cars! Merry Christmas Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. You don’t want to add it up. It will scare you to death! Prices for nice 2002 parts are going straight up. Back in the days of BMW MOBIL TRADITION, you could actually buy individual fasteners for a few cents. Now you have to buy at least 10, 20 or more and the price has gone up considerably. Belt line trim was $160 for a complete set. Now it is $160 a piece X 10 pieces and they don’t fit. Prices for high demand items like mud flaps and Euro or Italian Turn signals and Horn buttons have gone thru the roof. With prices this high for nice spare parts, it would almost be cheaper sometimes to buy from BAT than build it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. Yes it is cheaper. It cost me about $100/50 Euro. For the conversion. My radiator guy brought the fitting straight out and up to clear the compressor, not to the side like the W&N radiator. He also painted the radiator with the standard gloss black mixture of enamel and gasoline. i have since cleaned the glossy paint off and repainted with Eastwood Satin black radiator paint. i have some clearance issues so I gave not installed my radiator yet. The W&N radiator is a little thicker than my current E21 radiator and the fan would hit the radiator on the passenger side. I plan to install the radiator in the spring. if I cannot get clearances, My new and modified radiator will be up for sale.
  15. Merry Christmas! I ordered a W&M Radiator and had it modified by a local shop so it would fit around my AC Compressor. I would recommend ordering the correct Radiator for AC. Although it costs more, I think you will be happier in the long run. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
