  1. For the 228mm setup, yes. However, bear in mind that BMW ran out about two years ago and superseded the number with the standard 325i M20 pressure plate. It will work, but it has less clamping force and fewer straps than the S14 plate. I've heard rumor that a generic aftermarket S14-strength plate is now available, but have not independently verified its performance (color me skeptical).
  2. 1) Yes, yes (especially if you are using wheel bolts) 2) Yes, how you do it is your call. 3) Yes 4) Unclear 5) Yes
  3. Monterey Or Bust!

    Love these updates Paul. Looking forward to reading about the rest of your journey.
  4. Weber 32/36 linkage question

    Hmm -- They must be bypassing Redline then (the official US importer of Weber parts). Interesting, thanks for that. Best of luck!
  5. What to do with my 1600?

    My two cents ... do both. Be straight forward and say what your minimum price would be, if no one takes it (agrees/buys/arranges shipping) by .... say two weeks, then you part the car. Bear in mind that if you part the car you may want to hang onto many of the parts till your next project. If it has a chrome-trim lower front dash, I want it!
  6. Weber 32/36 linkage question

    Yes, this would be right. Which means............. Worzella, in case you were not aware you have purchased a chinese knock-off weber carb. There are a number of threads that cover this if you wanted to look into it. IE has the parts.
  7. Introducing "PB&J"

    Super cool, looks like a great car! From what I can see it looks like a decent repaint job as well. Here's to twisty two-lane roads in your future!
  8. Header Opinions Wanted

    Actually there is a fair amount to be gained from a decent header over a Tii manifold. Jeez, its already been four years since I posted this.... Independent back to back dyno of a Tii header and system vs Stg.2 Step header and system. stock run: 94.9hp/97.1torque ie stg.2 step run: 102.65hp/105.81torque
  9. Header Opinions Wanted

    The 1.5" "STEP" header design works decently enough on street hotrod engines. JR - Just as an FYI regarding the TopEnd headers. They are the original Ireland design... over time the supplier's quality got worse. Jeff (with his new "awesome" manufacturer) designed the step header as a clear improvement and moved on. TopEnd basically just scooped in afterward and started buying/selling them. What you have now is just fine, the Tri-Y might give you a tad bit more power in the mid-range and a whole lot more sexy. Aside from the look, my favorite part on the Tri-Y is the fitment. Worked quite a bit during prototyping on getting everything to line up nicely underneath. Lastly, the simple Shorty and downpipe is still a decent option. Cross comparing the Step header, Tri-Y header, and the Shorty header .... we are looking at maybe 5hp differences at different points on the curve given your engine spec (so not huge). The strongest being the Tri-Y, but go figure it's the most spendy/sexy.
  10. Opinions Wanted! Shift Knob Design Poll

    I already make E. ..... so A.
  11. buying 74 tii -- do I need smog cert?

    It does not need to be tested upon transfer of ownership. EDIT: sonofa..... beat by a few seconds. Dave is on point.
  12. This guy just posted to the FB bmw 2002 page a couple hours ago. He changed his name to Michael Hona.
  13. Differential Seal?

    I put together kits utilizing Timken bearings for people. Rather not take away from your thread though, shoot me a PM.
  14. Differential Seal?

    Go to REALOEM.com and follow the steps to get to your car. This website is an older version of the BMW ETK parts program that BMW uses. Not only will you find a diagram illustrating the diff and its components, it will also give you coordinating BMW part numbers that you can then cross reference. ----------------------------- The items in your first link are nonsensical gibberish put there by a program, not anyone knowing anything about these cars. Hope this helps point you in the right direction. I also recommend a better parts supplier, one knowledgeable about 2002's. Generic parts websites are no place for accurate information about old cars.
  15. Are these US bumpers, why no front overhang?

    Reminds me of this classic story. https://www.r3vlimited.com/board/showthread.php?t=199066 Bill - Welcome to the FAQ and 2002 ownership!
