    BMW 1800 TISA

    The car used to belong to Arthur Porter in CO. He did the restoration and added the fancy graphics. It will be VERY interesting to see what it brings.

    Terry has been working on some details for the last week. Here is where we're at with a few. The gauges we ordered have arrived and he has them in the dash insert. I went for a retro look with satin rings and a Euro type face. We were able to combine 4 gauges in the left unit- fuel level, oil pressure, oil temp, and water temp. Terry test fit the rear wheels and the spacing looks pretty good. We will be putting 195/50-15s up front, and 205/50-15s in the rear. We will be using a coil on plug set-up for the ignition. He has all the details worked out for this set-up. Stay tuned for more updates!

    Time for another update on this project. Terry has the S14 in and tied down. I think I mentioned that he had to fab custom engine mounts to get the engine located down and back where we wanted it. he also installed the remote oil filter and a cool double pass oil cooler up front next to the radiator: At the back end the fuel tank is in, plumbed, and wired. We had the FI expert come by the shop and go over the installation. He gave Terry a list of parts we will need to get the system working. Once those arrive Terry will install them and the FI guy will come back and do the fine tuning.

    Mike- great to get to know you better. Hopefully we can re-connect at a race this summer.

    Good stuff Andrew. It was good to see you as always, I'm just sorry we didn't have more time to talk. It seems like every time we began a conversation somebody wanted me to go do something. Hopefully we can catch up at a race this summer.

    Fun weekend. Great seeing so many of you. Video is uploading as I type. Look for it soon.
  10. I received a link from Michael Mitchell at the BMW CCA Foundation Museum of an interview he did with German TV about the 2002 and The ICON exhibit. All in German but still pretty cool: Mary and I are headed back Wednesday for the closing party. Full report, photos, and video next week!

    Time for another update on the building of "blue 72". Terry has been busy with proper fitting of the engine. He fabricated some custom engine mounts to move the engine back a bit more. This should give us ample clearance to the radiator: He has also been working on plumbing the brakes and wrapping up installation of both front and rear suspension: With racing season beginning in early March I am hopeful that Terry can get things pretty well buttoned up before he gets REAL busy.
  12. Let's hear it for those privateers- like Peter Koepchen! He's my hero.
  13. I think folks covered the reasons why the 02's didn't do very well. I'll only add the following image of my car in period doing its best to keep up.
