There is some scattered info but nothing consistent or in one thread,
Can any and everyone that installed the BMW v12 engine add info with the items we need to salvage from the BMW.

Also any parts not used for the engine but can be used elsewhere in the build can we post that info: what are the parts used for now!


I start, first you need a BMW donor Car

Dave built from an 850 and they have the EKM box, the 750 does not. Once I get a chance to test my car on the road I am going make up an alternative to the speed sensor issue.

Engine Related:
750 iL
Relay box from right front fender
Charcoal Canister right front fender.
2 DME's /1 EML right rear of engine bay.
Fuse panel from left rear of engine bay.
Oil Filter housing
Thottle potentiometer under the dash
All powersteering special connectors. Suspension lines too.
Relay box from under left rear seat.
Grab as many in-line wire connectors as you can.
Rear axles.
Power door lock solenoids
Power mirror motors

I also had a complete 850 and have kept nearly everything from the car. I even kept the heated seat pads as well as the pneumatic lumbar support bags for that extra added seat comfort. I also kept the original gauge and lights panel with all switches for getting the thing running and then I will switch over to the replica gauges, switches and warning lights once I get all of the bugs worked out.

OK Guys, this is great information . Let's also add non-donor parts that are needed for the BMW V12 set-up. Switta gave us a Napa belt and part number. What else do we need? Fuel Pump? Secondary Water Pump? Temp. Sensors? And while we have the engine out and in the neighborhood, Gaskets? Alternator? Plug Wires?

I am learning so much from this. The different parts of cars are really something that gives me a headache. Anyways, have you rebuild or finished your project car?

I used the power seat brackets from the REAR seats to mount my seats in the Roadster. Very minor modification needed and work great. They give about 4 to 5" of forward and backward travel.
