guys could be a repost but are you aware of Simons excellent instructions on reusing the original ecus
http://v12diablo.co.uk/resources/BMW%20V12%20Using%20OEM%20ECU%27s.pdf

I have also found a few pics of people using the DK motor assembly with the motor removed, I have a spare in pieces in the shed so decided to investigate if a lever was attached to the existing butterfly coil spring return like I have seen in the pictures, and the motor removed, I really cant see why the original gas pedal pot can't be mounted somewhere at the end of a manual throttle cable so giving feedback to the ecu and the DK position sensor can just plug into the loom as original, or have I missed something

Simon is the guy I credit with me even attempting this swap. He is 'Bodger' at the beginning of this thread.
Seems like a bunch of work that is not needed as DK motor is the TPS and is needed in the system anyway.

Hi Jim, so what your saying is that the DK is the TPS, so I could throw away the original gas peddle and pot ???, as it would not be needed with no motor on the DK , I would have thought the cpu would still need a signal from the gas pedal, still trying to learn what makes this engine go.
Also do you have any thoughts on how they run this engine without any 02 sensors at all , I think my car is a English car it has no o2 or o2 relay and that has been confirmed by an old BMW tech. It's just that it seems really rich and chewed through 20 lts in 1/2 hour of idling it currently has an oil leak in the rear of the sump that is causing it to suck oil through the intake and fowls the plugs real quick, I had a job to get it going and found most of the soldered joints where the main connectors on the ecus are attached had cracked, so have disassembled and re soldered all of the ecu connector joints so at least it now runs on 12, but the ABS just comes up on screen and says error and the asc will not light up at all, any thoughts, I have checked every fuse in the car and they are all good.

The DK motors give feedback to the ecu. The pedal does too. The DK is told to move and the DK tells the ecu that it is in the correct position now so now apply the correct timing and fuel.
I know the early M70's didn't have o2 sensors. It was all dealt with by the original tune.

Remove and replace the PVC valves and make up a homemade oil catch can in the line. Let the oil drop into tube with steel wool in it and have clean vacuum on the top.
See my drawing;

Hi:
Is this the 3 Core Honda Radiator Jim used on V-12?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/TRI-CORE-FULL-ALUMINUM-3-ROW-RADIATOR-92-00-HONDA-CIVIC-EG-EK-DEL-SOL-INTEGRA-DC-/190717883913?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item2c67abf609&vxp=mtr


Any specific year?
And does anyone have pics of how they made their fan shrouds?

dB...............................

Hey dB
Better late than never I guess.. I made my own radiators.
16" tall X 14" wide cores with 1" tanks on each end. = 16"X16".
I had 2" upper and lower hose ports with a dual pass tank divider.
I added an upper and lower 1/4"NPT port to each rad. One side is drain, the other side is vent depending on the orientation it is universal.

It's not the muffler that creates the exotic sound. There are probably better mufflers to give you the exotic sound.
I removed the catalytic converters from the muffler I bought.
