  1. FYI Still for sale but now with new Toyo eclipse tires and soon to be new giubo and driveline carrier bearing!
  2. So it looks like 22 lb injectors are roughly the "correct" size. Do the injector body sizes differ between the bosch and the siemens injectors or are they interchangeable? I'm not familiar with injector interchange.
  3. So I'm prepping for the EFI swap on the 02 and the only part I'm uncertain of is injector sizing. I've tried the search tool but there doesn't seem to be any concrete advice on size or EV1 vs EV6 injectors. I was thinking about using either 22 lb/hr orange injectors off a 4.6L ford or the 24 lb/hr blue injectors off a 5.0L ford. The only issue with that is EV1 or EV6 style injectors!? Does anyone know if the only differences between the two are the plug style and the 4 hole on the EV6 vs pintle on the EV1 or are the bodies different heights as well? I want to interface with the stock 318i fuel rail. Any advice would be much appreciated.
  4. So was checking out the 02 to make sure all the wiring was up to snuff and only found one issue. From looking at the forum it looks as if someone bypassed the the starter relay under the dash by connecting the black starter wire on the ignition (roughly 6 o'clock position) to the black wire with the white stripe. How it was done was rather hokey having a small gage yellow and brown wire connect the two. I'm wondering if i can just bypass the plug and connect the black starter wire to the black and white wire or if they still both need to go to the plug?
  5. They do a "visual check" for emission equipment such as an evap canister and put a mirror under the car to look for a CAT, but I don't think 2002s were ever built with CATs. If you've never dealt with DEQ guys you will find out they aren't usually car guys. You could point to a can shaped object and they would check it off on their list as an evap canister (something my buddy did on a 75 ford f100). Oregon doesn't do safety inspection on any instate vehicles, and i don't think the DMV requires a safety inspection for out of state vehicles either. "Special Interest" plate cars are smog exempt as far as I know. My other buddy has a 85 4Runner with all the emission regulation removed and a hotter cam that he put "Special Interest" plates on since he only street drives it to the OHV areas to go wheeling. If you are doing megasquirt with an EDIS I'm sure you could write a ignition and fuel map that would get an early 90s motor to pass mid 70s DEQ testing.
  6. So I can hopefully shed a little light on what they test during DEQ in Oregon. I found a heap of info when i was contemplating caving and getting a 75/76 02. I'll poke around some more and try to find the year by year guidelines but i can't seem to find them at the moment... http://www.epa.gov/otaq/consumer/12-miles.pdf and http://www.epa.gov/otaq/consumer/f99017.pdf give some year by year background. I've never run a pre OBD-II car through a DEQ test, but from what I know if you pass the sniff test I don't think they really care. I don't know how familiar you are with emission control devices but the M42 is a much modern motor and if it has a functional EGR and CAT I highly doubt you would have any problem passing 75/76 emission standards. 75/76 had an air pump that injected air into the exhaust to induce a secondary combustion process to reduce unburnt hydrocarbon (one of the things they test for in 75/76), but you have fuel injection now so you shouldn't have that problem! The only thing I'd be worried about would be producing too much NOx. The EGR system is designed to reduce NOx output, as well as the CAT (if you put a modern 3 way CAT on). Unless the motor has a radical cam and a crazy fuel map you will probably be okay.
  7. 1974 Malaga with cream-ish tan interior. Four speed with the stock m10. Was a one owner car up until 2005 right here in Portland. I am now the fourth owner. The motor was rebuilt 44k miles ago back in 1988 with all the receipts. The car came with a folder about an inch thick with receipts dating back to 1980 for service work done to the car. Interior appears to have been redone by a PO but there are no receipts for it in the pile. Its just too nice to be original... All of the body seals are also new so thats an added bonus! Overall its a super clean little rig that runs like a top!
  8. [sharedmedia=garage:vehicles:456] Proof it could be found!
  9. The definitely exist on the West coast without rot at the 8k mark with no time travel needed!!
  10. So I'm starting to realize i might need to broaden my search radius... If anyone has a car anywhere in Cali, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Montana or BC I'd be willing to make the drive. I just want to be able to make it back in 2 days!
  11. Bump! Still very much looking!
  12. Bump! Still looking! I'm flexible on the 8k upper limit especially if the car is in oregon.
  13. I fall in Portland DEQ and want a smog exempt one because I plan on adding a cam, EFI, and other mods that might not allow it to pass. Portland Metro isn't on a 20 year rolling exemption like Washington. All cars newer than 1974 have to meet DEQ standards for the year they were made.
