  1. Numbers matching '72 tii or M2?

    Mine is 2357cc with a TON of port work to the head by my brother
  2. WTB - Getrag 245 (CA)

    I have a G245 with the sensor bongs welded on for a "02" S14 conversion. 831-262-2853 Seaside Ca.

    Cool. Find another "02"for the S14. Dig the color.....
  4. Numbers matching '72 tii or M2?

    I’m using the Electromotive “Crank Trigger” system....

    Here’s a short video DC6FF2E1-BE8A-42EE-BF57-56C3C4F48BFA.MOV
  6. Numbers matching '72 tii or M2?

    I wouldn’t mod the Tii, I would find another “02”. With 1st hand experience, you will not be disappointed with a S14 powered “02”. If the motor you’re looking at doesn’t have the fuel injection system, I have that for sale. I also have adapters to mate the M10 intake manifolds to the S14 head if you decided to run carburetors.
  7. what springs are these?

    Find somebody that races "Circle Track", they will know who has a spring checker. My brother has one in Kuna Idaho. Lots of "Circle Track" guys use them all the time...
  8. 02 Oil filter gasket leak

    The last one I installed was a "Mobile 1" 102a
  9. What did you do to your 2002 today !

    Replaced the sensor that kicks on the electric fan (I figured out a couple days ago in traffic in front of Carmel high school that the electric fan did not turn on, I figured that something was wrong with the sensor). Did a 73-mile test drive. Came home to find the “Jet Needles” I ordered came in. Swapped them out, then went for another short 19-mile test drive. Cars & Coffee gathering in Santa Cruz in the morning. Then I’ll head home to prep the car for a 5-hour/210-mile fun-run on Monday with some fellow BMW folk. Gonna be a nice drive, Starting off in Marina, gonna jump on Hwy 1 towards Pacifica. We’ll head East on Hwy 92, then South on “Skyline/Hwy 35”, down to “Alice’s Restaurant”... Fun weekend ahead for logging some miles...
  10. S14 finally road worthy

    YEP. Are you one of the pissed off folk?
  11. S14 finally road worthy

    Thank you, it's been a mission of mine, my brother and a good friend Dave Lewis, to get this thing together. I'm just fine tuning on the carbs right now, waiting on the "Jet" needles for the carbs to arrive, should have them by this Friday. "Strava", it's a free bicycle/running app that I got off of my phone.
  12. S14 finally road worthy

    Weather has been PERFECT for the last couple of weeks here on the Monterey Peninsula, giving me plenty of time to “test, tune”, log some miles, an enjoy the feeling of sitting behind the wheel again. It’s been a LONG 13-months that it was down for the “S14” swap, happy to have it back.....
  13. Exhaust and Muffler Suggestions

    Go down to your local muffler shop, get (2) 2-1/4" glass packs and use 2-1/4" muffler tubing. Sounds great, should cost less than $250, and it will be a nice custom fit, you won't have to fuss with it. I ran it on my M10 and my S14
  14. Abarth Ansa vs IE Exhaust

    Go down to your local muffler shop, (find a guy who's a hot-rodder, and support him). For less than $300, get (2)-20" glass packs, use 2-1/4" tubing. The fit will be PERFECT, sounds very cool, and you won't have to fuss with it. I had the same exhaust with my M10, I have the same exhaust now with the built S14. I'm 55, been around hot rods and circle track racing my whole life, "02's" since 1982, you're gonna be WAY more happy having someone custom fit your exhaust.....
