  1. The M42 got ratchet strapped to a furniture dolly when I yanked it out of the donor wreck, and I've been stumbling over it and banging my shins on it and generally cursing the space it takes up in my tiny workshop (a.k.a. closet) ever since. So I said to myself "Self, let's just get this damn thing in the car. Figure the rest out later." Installation was the reverse of removal; put M42 on '02 front subframe, put the whole mess on a furniture dolly, jack '02 up just for enough for it to clear the top of the motor, and lower the car down 'til the subframe bolt holes line up. Don't forget to
  2. Hello again, Since my suspension order won’t be shipped for some time I decided to tackle the engine. The new heart is an M42. An inline 4, Dual overhead cam, 16 valve engine from a 1991 BMW 318is. Now although Webbers and a Cam can make the same power from the original engine and it would be super cool, I wanted something dependable and something that I could upgrade in the future to make even more power. The engine was looking a little gross and although I am probably not painting the engine bay, the engine itself definitely needed to be painted. So here is the original engine an

    Me and Blue

    From the album: 1976 BMW 2002

    Had my wife take a photo while we were driving around town last summer.
  4. I need to sell a project car and am soliciting your help in determining a price. 1969 2002, no motor or transmission Its in somewhat rough shape, and will require rockers, outer arches, and a drivers side frame rail. There are pinholes in the spare tire well and will probably need a floor patch on the drivers side. Otherwise the body is straight - no visible signs of being bumped. It's in primer grey and it rolls. It appears someone rattle-canned silver and clear - both of which are peeling off. It's been garaged since I've owned it (2 years). The rear shock towers are good. The nose is good, needing just a small patch near the lower lip. The grills are there, with one vent fin needing to be reattached. The round taillights are painted, but in decent condition This is a west coast car for most of its life. I bought it from a guy in Utah that bought it from California. The car is now located near Washington DC. I've been collecting parts for 2 years for it: m42 motor from a 1991 318is and the matching 5 speed. Good compression on all 4. Includes ECU, harness, driveshaft 3.91 lsd Recaro fronts, needing re-upholstered Rear seats from an e24 6 series, black, no blemishes a/c unit and center console replacement windshield belt trim What's a ballpark figure for selling? I'll add photos tomorrow.
  5. Finishing up an m42 swap and had some questions on my options regarding purge control valve, vapor tank etc. The car (1976) did not have the in-trunk expansion tank and the tank filler was vented directly out of the trunk when I bought the car, and its been that way ever since. The m42 did not come with a purge valve. The way I see it is my options are keep venting straight out and either add a dummy purge valve or resistor to eliminate the CEL. Do the same but add a charcoal canister before venting to slightly offset the eco-damage/fuel smell. Buy a used stock expansion tank, m42 purge valve, run the vent all the way up the car to the TB and hook it up as intended. Although I am a certified tree-hugger, the last option seems like far too much work and expense for a car that will be driven occasionally at-most. Am I completely misunderstanding how this stuff works? I know a proper operating system should have slightly better mileage since it burns the vapors instead of dumping them, but is it that big of a deal? Can I add the expansion tank and still avoid running another hose to the engine bay and collect and return the vapors in some other manner? Best, Peter
  6. I am researching engine swaps, and am narrowing it down to a M42 turbo, or naturally aspirated F20c. Leaving price and install complexity aside, (both are actually pretty similar), what would be your preference. A m42 turbo runs roughly peak 200hp/200torque, while the f20c is 240hp/155 torque. The f20c would come with its 6 speed, while the m42 with a 5spd getrag 240. Thanks, Chris
  7. Time to go fulfill my dreams. The car I've been hunting for has turned up. I was planning to keep the orange car but I got the chance to buy my car back and can't give that up. Selling my 1974 and 1976 BMW 2002. I'll explain this further down the description.Please take the time to read this if you plan on contacting me. Car runs, drives, and starts up.Details: Engine: 130k mile E36 M42 swapped Transmission: E36 G250 5 speed Transmission Differential: E21 LSD Round converted from square lights Has custom fitted Legacy gauges Seats from a Prelude Side mirrors from a Porsche 914 Swaybar from an E36 Front spoiler from a MK1 GTI KYB shocks 3/4 floor pans have been replaced.(I have metal for the last patch.) Springs are cut Kill switch Switches to fuel pump, fan, and push button for starter Battery located to the rear Doors don't lock but you can pull the locks from the parts car. Window is cracked slightly in the corner. Paint is okay and subjective to the individual. There was a cage in it before but no longer is there a cage. The reason why I said 1974/1976 is because the vin for this one is actually for a 76 which is a pain for registration. However, I have a parts car thatis a 1974 car that you can register under. Car is currently in Registration processso I have a temp permit but that's not needed because I recently discovered myparts car is a 1974 car. Therefore, you should register it under that. Why haven't I gone ahead and done that? I found this out a week ago and have been busy since. If you are concerned about registering your car, I will help you and guide you to the right placesand do whatever I can.Parts car has an m10 and 4speed. Unknown condition but was told it runs. Icranked it and it sounded like it would turn over if the battery wasn't deadand if there was more gas. The parts car is missing a bunch of stuff like a driveshaft, interior, rear subframe and some trimmings. Comes with a ton of parts.Also have metal rabbit flares for you to weld on and a heap of other stuff.I can set you up with a guy that has lots of 2002 parts and can help you fix whateveryou need to do. He's nice, will get you cheap parts, and local. This car is not for the person who really wants to do an "out of the showroom" build.This car is great for people that like to drive quick, go fast, sideways, and freely. It's loud. It's old. It's unique. It's peppy. It's different. It's attractive. It's fun.And It can be yours for $3000. It gets you the (2) 2002s, parts, and I'll even throw in an m20 blockif you really want that too.Orange one is located in Santa Cruz and parts car is in Sunnyvale.Here is a small video of it.https://youtu.be/SY5aSHsYzB8*I have included a video and a ridiculous amount of pictures. Please contact me if you are truly interested and want to make a time to meet." If you will buy it no questions asked and will make the process quick and painless because you recognize what is here, I will happily drop the price to $2500 so you have money towards towing the parts car, registration, gas, and being helpful.

  8. For anyone with an electronic speedometer, how did you set up the sender for it? I used this Rostra unit, but it's kind of terrible. The cheap-o magnets eventually fell off and my attempt to replace them hasn't yeilded good results. So, what have others used? I remember seeing a VR sensor somewhere on the diff, but I can't find it.

  11. I've acquired a pretty straight '76 that I'm going to motor swap and build into a hot streetcar. I'm having a hard time deciding what I want to throw into it for a power plant. I have a complete and running, but terminally rusty '91 318is that I recently purchased to use the drivetrain out of. It has higher mileage at ~200k so a refresh would be required. Thoughts are with this is to strap on a supercharger or turbo to see ~250hp. My friend recently mentioned to me that he was thinking of selling his spare S14 with tranny. The motor is a full drop in from radiator to the dme. Figuratively I believe I could build out the m42 and be into the drivetrain ~3k. The s14 is roughly twice that. Is a hot NA motor the way to go with these cars? I had a e30 m3 and while it was fun the motor was pretty uninspiring under 5k. Is the extra money up front for the S14 the way to go when/if it comes time for resale? I haven't seen a M2 trade recently so in pretty unfamiliar with the market
  12. Hi to all Let me start by saying a big thank you to all the people who contribute to this forum. It is a really valuable source of info and a big help ! I have recently started my own little project that will hopefully see an M42 engine in a 1972 1602 I just had the Car back from sandblasting ( I will post photos soon ) and I am starting on rust repair. Meanwhile I am trying to make up time by getting the M42 test fitted to my parts car And that brings a few questions J First of all I am not really sure what kind of drive shaft my parts car has on. It had a 5 speed gear box and the same paten that fits the M42 gearbox. I am guessing it is from an E21 but I m not sure... I am posting a photo for sure someone will know... Anyway since it conects to the M42 gerbox nicely I am thinking to leave it on but I am not sure if it brings the engine too far to the front . I am posting a photo and hopefully people who have done the M42 swap already can offer some guidance. I dont have engine mounts yet and I will be making my own since I am a bit too far away to be able and buy some ready made so at the moment I have no restrictions regarding engine mounts. Also I am trying to lift the engine up as much as possible but the oil pan is still sitting very low. How low of a stance can you get away with after the M42 swap?? Any photos would be really appreciated Thanks!
  13. Hello guys! I am doing a m44 with m42 injection swap on my oh2. All is done (almost)! The only thing I have to do is wire all this thing and it seems a big job for me. I need to know everything and all the steps to wire this. I saw the swap notes from jake but it seems like Chinese to me. Also, Ive got the harness of the m42 PLUS the harness of the m44. On the m44 harness, I dont have the coil wires. I dont see any cut wires tho. Can someone help me ? I would really like to drive this beast before the end of summer Thank you for your future answers !

  15. Hey all, I'm going to be doing a M42 swap into my '02, but I'm a bit stumped on the electronics. Im pulling some parts out of a donor car (e36), what electrical components will I need to grab? I've already grabbed battery cables, and all of the electrical components in the engine bay are disconnected. But, the fuse box has a lot of cables running through the firewall into the dash of the donor car which aren't just a simple 'unplug'. Do I need any of that? I ask because it's going to be a big job taking apart the donor cars dash to get all that wiring out. My instinct is that it's not needed.. but when it comes to electricals I'm fairly hopeless! Thanks,
  16. Make:: BMW Model:: 2002 This is not a desperate for cash sale, I simply need to move on and pass this almost finished project to some one who will finish it and enjoy it more, I got few calls and the first question that were asked were "What's wrong with it", again there is nothing wrong with my 02 I just reached a point where I really don't want to finish it and would like to pass it to someone who will enjoy it. I've migrated to riding my motorcycle more often and will not be needing a project in my life for a while. The highlights: 1975 (no smog for you CA residents) Original Socal car still carries CA blue plates. Original Polaris, 1.5 year old paint job shines great, proper engine out, glass out stripped down to bare bones paint job. -Full suspension rehab, every thing was bought from IE and no money was spared on parts. Bilsitens Sports with cut IE stage2 springs, + stage 2 sway bars. Over $2000 in parts -All new weather stripping all around, door seals, front and back windshield, rear popup windows,trunk seal . -e21 recaros in mint condition, were in storage since mid eighties, replaced webbing with new kit from adrdvark and the seats feel like new. -M42 Engine swap, done professionally by a local shop here in Socal, it was done using JakeB swap kit, the engine was pulled out of a babied 91 318is that had a little over 100K miles, -All seals and gaskets were replaced, -new water pump, thermostat, radiator, and SPAL 16" electric fan, new starter, and clutch slave cylinder. -All new aluminum fuel lines -New Walbro 255lph inline fuel pump -2.5'' exhaust piping, with mid resonator and a high flow muffler -All gauges work, we had to go with VDO electric gauges for the speedo and tach(both fit in stock location) - Brand new AEM Wideband AFR Gauge, AFR reads mid 14's all the time. - VDO Temp gauge. - New brakes in the rear and new pads upfront. -IE stainless steel brake lines. -Underdash AC With all Brand New components, from condenser, compressor, fan, hoses and aftermarket Evap unit. Engine temp does not cross 180 degrees in 95 degrees weather thanks to the 16'' fan and the 12'' Condenser fan. - 2.5'' full exhaust system, with mid resonator and rear muffler (not too loud), but exhaust can accommodate a future turbo. What it needs to be completed: -Finish Dynamating, carpet,headliner, and the back seat reupholstered. -Door cards vinyl is in great condition but backings need to be replaced. - So all together about a $1000 and a couple weekends and you got yourself a resto-moded properly built 02 that will run RELIABLY for many years to come. -No Money was spared building this 02. I will gladly answer any questions you might have, my number is 818-703-2097 Asking $15,000 I will take as many pictures of every corner of the car if you're far away and need close ups, otherwise it would be wise to come by and inspect for yourself. Better pictures can be seen at the Flickr album in the link below: https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/
  17. I'm looking for an engine wiring harness for an M42 from a '90/'91 318is. My engine has been rebuilt and is ready for install, but apparently I didn't pick up the harness when I picked up the engine. PM me with cost if you have one for sale. Thanks!
  18. I have a known-good M42 out of an E30 318is. This was not a wrecked car or anything, the engine was pulled in favor of a recently-completed S52 swap. Here is the complete setup: -Engine (complete with intake and exhaust manifolds) -G240 transmission -Clutch, etc. -Engine harness -DME (aka "The Computer") -Air flow meter and air box Basically, everything you need powertrain-wise (except the drive shaft) to start your M42 conversion. This is a high-mileage engine (~200k), but it was a good runner; the car was driven regularly by a good friend/customer for a year before it was pulled for the 6-cylinder swap. Only issues were the standard M42 oil leaks, never any problems running. The DME allegedly has a Jim Conforti chip in it, although I have not opened it to verify. Asking $600 for everything. Local pickup in Seattle preferred, although I'm pretty sure I can find a way or excuse to get it as far south as Portland. Will post photos as I have the chance, or ask for pictures.
  19. Hi all, have not been around much lately. I have traded my current engine (M10 with sidedrafts) for a M42 swap. Engine, harness, transmission, engine mounts, transmission mount, radiator. Most of what I need should be there. I am in a bit of a pickle. Maybe someone has been through the same. In all honesty, I posted this sentence almost a year ago, when I took my 02 to storage because of an oil leak. I don´t really enjoy the car as much anymore. I guess I would take the 02 out every now and then should i decide to keep it. Local cars and coffee, getting ice cream with the wife and odd trips around town. I hesitate to sell it at all because of the potential investment it might be. Anyway. There are a couple of options. 1.1: Minor rebuild(gaskets, re-ring, service carburettor, a new rocker(one cracked), hoses and other bits and ends) and keep the car 1.2: Same, but sell the car 1.3 M42 swap and keep it There is a huge price difference here. I could most likely sell on the M42 to pay for all the work need to to on the stock engine. If I go M42 swap I would need to apply the Norwegian DMV to do an engine swap, and upgrade the cars brakes, suspension and such to 2002 Turbo to be road legal. Best case its $5-7000 in parts. If I sell it after the build, I would be lucky to break even, and all my hours would be free. Current condition: BMW 1602 1974, Euro-spec 2-owner car, no rust, new fenders, nose, rear arches, front floor, inner fenders and parts of firewall in 2011-2012. Repainted, decent. All in all, I would call it a 15-footer. Not great, but no inherent flaws. Also has Bilstein sport suspension and stiffer springs, stock height. Coilovers front(IE parts, home made). All new bushes in suspension(polyurethane). There is a build thread in the archives here. "My yellow -74" I think. What would you do? I am fairly certain that if I go with M10, I will use it a lot less than if I go with M42. If I do M42, it would be two years at least until it is on the road again, Actually, it really helps to write this down. Going with the M10 is the only sane option, is it not?
  20. Hiya, I am currently looking at trying to find a m42 driveline to swap into my 2002, Id obviously need all the bits and pieces to make the swap work. Id either do cash OR I have a ugly but running e30ix manual 2dr id trade for a good drive line. its rusted and its a blue and white ugly combo, but it drives and AWD system works well with no chain slip plus a manual 2dr so even if you decided to part out you can make back the 800-1200$ that a m42 drive line would be worth+time . I am not interested in selling the e30ix at this time only trade. let me know if someone out there would make a trade like that or has a m42 drive line in the Glenwood springs area. Thanks
  21. Getting a late start to this build thread that was started at the end of December 2018. I will post a bunch of items now to catch up, and then it will possibly slow down a little (hopefully not to much). I am hoping to have it on the road this summer. This is what it looked like when I brought it home Dec 10th.
  22. Folks, I am trying to free up some funds to finish my 1972 2002. I'm almost done but it's time to build a nice m10 for my car and I'm looking to sell some lingering projects to make funds. This m42 engine was built by my brother when he worked over at Evosport roughly 10 years ago. He built this engine at Evosport (he was the engine builder there) and then he ran it in his personal e36 318 sedan for about 50 miles but he was not happy with performance of the engine when linked to the low-flowing factory m42 intake manifold so I traded him for a complete S50 and took this engine with plans to link it to ITB's or DCOE's and run it in my 2002....... Engine details: M42 iron block 12:1 compression JE pistons. Pauter rods. Schrick cams. Ireland ported head. Custom tube headers for 2002 usage. I recently learned that racehead Australia makes an ITB kit see it here: http://racehead.com.au/products-page/throttle-body-kits/bmw-m44m42-complete-itb-kit/ I bet those intakes on this engine would give the S14 guys a real run for their money. Buying a "good used engine" is a huge leap of faith, I understand this so I am willing to take the engine fully apart for perspective buyer to show internals/condition, we can even do it together if you are local, of course that will require some new gaskets, etc to put it back together, if you are interested DM me and we can work something out. I have a shop near DTLA where I can show this engine anytime. Price....$3000. Engine was built back then at a high cost and has low miles/use. I'm trying to build a fairly trick m10 for my car and would be open to a trade for a "hot" m10. If you are interested, DM me. A box full of random m42 spares is also included with purchase/trade. Dust on engine is shelf dust, all ports, etc were tapped/plugged for storage.
  23. For what it's worth the fastest way to install an M42 in a 2002 is to mount it to the subframe out of the car, slide it under the jacked up car, and raise the whole thing from the engine bay with an engine crane. One person can do it in an hour or so (of course, there's still the wiring, plumbing and accessories to hook up). See more in my project blog at: http://tx02.blogspot.com/2013/04/m42-installedagain.html
  24. I got a M42 swapped 1974 2002tii. After running hard for 30-60 minutes or so, the engine will feel like it is hitting a rev limiter at like 4000-5000rpm or so and gets worse if I keep driving it. If I let the car cool down it will run fine for a bit. I've swapped ECU's, coil packs, MAF, even the entire motor with engine wiring harness. I suspect it is an electrical issue since it only happens when the motor is hot, Any ideas? Suggestions? -Scott
  25. So I have a 76 2002 with an E36 M42 swapped into it and for some reason it won't rev past 4k RPM. What could that be? I've called a few shops and they told me it's either the coil packs, timing is off, or it's the crank position sensor. I figured it's not the CPS because it starts, runs, and drives, just doesn't rev past 4000. Anyone else experience this or know what could be the problem?
