  4. Out of curiosity, with all the smog regulations, how does anyone register hot rodded cars in California?
  5. I figure I should start a blog now that the engine swap is under way and I have collected enough photos to satisfy the masses. I (and as far as I can tell, many others in this forum) am a VW/Audi person but more importatnly a car person, I can appreciate all... well most... brands and models. Without going into too much detail I have had my share of VWs and Audis. I sold my project Audi Coupe Quattro after thinking I didn't need all the early 90's gizmos in a project car, I did like the car but the list of options is through the roof; from a heated door key hole to the 8 way heated seats. Good bye Audi Coupe. I was looking at E21s and 2002s and came across this E21, it was someone's project and the story was that they acquired an engine and bits from a E21 race car and planned to run those parts on this one. They dropped the motor in and that was the end of the project, with another project underway they liquidated this car, I got a great deal on it. Hello E21 The E21 was a wreck, it would take thousands just to get the car on the road, I knew going into it I was buying the car for the motor to do a swap into a 2002. Fast forward a few weeks and I came across this car on craigslist, it is a 1976 California car living in a storage unit in Michigan, the guy I bought it from was getting a divorce and really needed to get rid of it. The car was originally fjord blue but you can tell it has had a really bad paint job, the paint is faded and peeling off and it is showing some rust but the floors are solid, also there is some bondo but I don't know to what extent... I guess I'll find out if I ever decide to paint it. The car is bone stock, no modifications other than some fog lights.
  6. Engine is in the car but when I fired it up it ran very rough, found out cylinder 1 had no compression. Changed head gasket and tried again, fired up but ran rough. Checked air fuel with a wideband and it was running lean, very lean. Took the carbs apart and cleaned them, in the process of putting them back together. Here is a taste
  7. Harv, that is the oil feed line for the turbo coming from the oil filter housing, the return is just under the turbo draining into the side of the block. It is definitely running lean, if under boost I would expect it to run like a non boosted M10. There is a rising rate fuel pressure regulator that works. Here is the engine installed in the 2002, will have more pics soon.
  8. Thanks for the encouraging words, they are needed. Engine is installed but it had a blown head gasket, replaced that and it is now running... not very well but running, I installed a wideband (fuel/air) and it read lean pretty much everywhere, I cleaned up the carbs once before but now I'm in the process of taking them apart again to do a more through cleaning and see if it helps. published my blog today but will need to update... stay tuned. http://www.bmw2002faq.com/blog/42-poktrokts-blog/
  9. I'm doing this... I found a parts car with a turbo M10 for under $1,000 that I couldn't pass up, I started looking for a car then. The turbo is actually a kit for a 2002 so it was a no brainer, plus I really wanted a 2002. Found a '76 2002 in michigan that had lived in california all of its life, the paint is faded but the body is solid, stole it at $1800. Engine is in the car and I hope it will be on the road in a few weeks. Engine in the 320i when i got it. The car it is is going in. I guess it is time to start a build thread
  10. In case anyone is wondering these are now in my hands. Thanks MarkC!
