  1. You are probably right. But it would be cool to say that you have a twin turbo bmw 2002
  2. Let us know how your manifold works out. I could never get a strait answer out of them regarding which one I should use. Some have openings between the ports, others not. Jenvey tech also couldn't confirm if this has been installed on a 2002. Also the part that they don't tell you is that you need an IAC (idle air controller), or they will run rough and start hard when cold (or that is what I was told) . Especially important in Canadian climates.
  3. I just can't find anyone to work on it, at least in Toronto. $4-5K to ship it to the US (thanks to the weak CDN$) doesn't make sense. For that dough I send the car to my fabricator who can make it work for sure, and it gives me 20 more years in terms of being able to be easily serviced.
  4. While sitting in Toronto, under the most extreme lockdown in North America, I am bored as all get go. So while watching donut media I had a bit of an idea. Hybrid turbo for the 2002. Purely for the challenge of it, I wonder if you could put an electric turbo inline with a conventional turbo to eliminate the lag that people typically associate with a conventional turbo. Audi is doing it on some of the new stuff. From a programming standpoint it is a single input (on or off). Just trying to wrap my head around the plumbing and boost control mechanisms. I am thinking a PLC to control the boost on the electric turbo. The electric turbo could tuck in just before the throttle. Weight... yes, but the space between rear strut towers could hold the battery. Crazy.. yes.. but it could work. Concept Installed
  5. From what I can figure out, the rubber hits the road between the clutch plate and pressure plate. RX8 compatible clutch, with the correct diameter to fit between the BMW pressure plate and flywheel. The tilton throwout bearing give you the adjustment so that the clutch engages and disengages properly. The stroke of the throwout and the master clutch cyl is going to give you the feel. I can imagine that there will be some experimenting to see what works. I may modify the plate I ordered so that you can adjust the concentricity of the transmission. I have yet gotten the courage up to ask how to measure it. A bit of me feels like putting it in, and if my $350 transmission bites it.. oh well.
  6. I own one of these but haven't used it yet, just in case I have your problem. It may be worth looking at. Regards https://www.ebay.com/itm/UNIVERSAL-TACH-ADAPTER-CONVERTER-COP-1-2-3-4-5-6-8-10-cyl-to-any-4-6-8-Tach/141931549970
  7. Understood, I was thinking If you don't have access to a welder, these may be a good place to start. Sorry for the confusion.
  8. I feel your pain. That is why I am looking at a RX8 Transmission.
  9. I got these from blunt, they fit the bmw 2002 to Recaro seats. I figured that I can use this as a base and drill/weld on what I need. I have yet to try to install my E21 sport seats using these, I am trying to get it on the ground right now. https://www.blunttech.com/shop/1482btkt
  10. I love the idea. If you run a larger A/C condenser you may be bumping up against it.
  11. So that is the one. i was hoping that the locating rod would line up on the RX8. I am kinda getting excited.
  12. Sorry I was I was looking for the part number for the clutch master cyl, not realising that they were a set. I will call Tilton, but it looks like Tilton TIL-60-6104 is the best candidate according to RX8 forums. Regards
  13. I am sure that the folks here would appreciate a part number. I will try it with the stock one when the time comes. Setting the throwout bearing specs looks like it will be tricky.
  14. Sorry I just read this. To be more precise, you won't see much improvement in top end performance. If you aren't having problems driving it around town, then I wouldn't do anything. It does help with the driveability, but you don't get the feel of a modern EFI car. I simply got a good streetable car, a bit more performance and better cold starting, smoother power. But because I was one of the first to do this, it was all new. I learned a lot, and it is fun to experiment. As far as cost goes you are all in for about $1500 depending on how fancy you want to be with the plumbing. The just released a new "small bore" kit that may work better. I checked the specs, it is the same CFM as mine it may work better on smaller engines. https://www.holley.com/products/fuel_systems/fuel_injection/sniper_efi/sniper_efi_2gc/sniper_efi_2gc_small_bore/parts/550-866K I just updated my response after finding this. The replacement for the autolite 1100. This is a new new one. It is a single barrel 220 ish CFM carb with a single injector. This would for sure work on our cars and I feel would be great for a stock setup. The DGA carbs flow about 450 max, so if you are using all of your 38X38, then this one would be a step down. For those folks that just want a good daily driver experience, for 750 bucks it is a no brainer. No fuss no muss. There are a lot of folks that feel a 32/36 is over carbing a stock 2L engine. https://www.holley.com/products/fuel_systems/fuel_injection/sniper_efi/sniper_efi_autolite_1100_one_barrel/parts/550-552
