    Looking for opinions...EFI talk

    Got any more details on this? I'm curious how much fabrication was necessary. I've done motorcycle ITBs with megasquirt on a 16V VW, but it had a ton more room, no brake booster in the way. Plus I'm to the point I'm willing to pay a bit more for something more bolt-on, I'm tired of the car spending more time in the garage than on the road.

    Shits and giggles exhaust cutout

    I can see the appeal with a turbo. The turn down angle/rotation/location is important too. In an old Chevy, I had a V8 with pair of turn downs just before the rear axle, reverb off the road was deafening, and that was with mufflers. What if instead of a cutout that dumps in the middle of the car, you just run another pipe parallel to the main exhaust and then merged back in at the tips?

    I'm interested to see how the Chase Bays master cylinder works out. I looked at them a while back, but my concern was the pedal ratio isn't changed, so you might not get enough force to operate the brakes, unless you have He-Man legs. This one solves that problem: https://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/topic/183796-new-boosterless-brakes-now-fully-adjustable/

    Ecu harness though the firewall

    Complete price, or just the housings (no pins)?

    Crankshaft Pulley ?

    Out of curiosity, what marks are you lining up? If the pistons are 12 o'clock, where are the marks? Pics would help immensely here.

    Gauge cluster chrome trim

    My 76 had a set of chrome rings on it, guessing they weren't factory?

    Cable ties

    Anyone have a link to the W&N 10 piece kit? I couldn't find it on their site. I did find the 3 different sizes on Rogerstii site: http://www.rogerstii.com/bmw-2002-3-0cs-69mm-long-cable-tie-wiring-holder/ http://www.rogerstii.com/bmw-53mm-long-cable-tie-wiring-holder-2002-320i-3-0cs-635csi/ http://www.rogerstii.com/bmw-41mm-cable-tie-wiring-holder-2002-320i-e12-e3-e9/ Is the measurement from the center of the post to the center of the hole? The ones for the headlight wiring, that runs behind the radiator, appear to be 41mm, assuming it's not overall length, which is about 50mm
  9. I'm not sure what year/model car you have, but realoem says that part # is found on 03/66 - 07/77 http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/partxref?q=33333428125 If your braces were removed, get a measurement from the mount to the hole in the floor, I'm sure one of us can measure ours to see if they're the same.

    steering box

    I bought one of the ebay units, but haven't had a chance to test it (car is still on jackstands, but it is installed at least) I did take it apart and everything looked good. My old box looked good inside too, but the adjuster was almost flush with the nut, so I decided it was worth the $100 gamble.

    Trunk design Trivia

    What is the extra panel bonded to the quarter panel with? One of mine looks to have separated, or maybe the quarter was replaced in the past and it wasn't re-attached. Not sure if I should be worried or not.
  13. I posted this in my last blog entry, but here is almost everything I bought for my engine rebuild Parts from IE, Blunt, FCP, and ebay. Definite savings by shopping around.
  14. You say the holes don't line up, but is it close or way off?

    320i shift platform

    Thanks, seems like a bit of an odd setup vs. going straight up.
