      Not only has that question been answered over and over again in this forum, but it's been asked in THIS THREAD.



      BY YOU



      AND ANSWERED.




      Jesus. Between this and the guy PM'ing me asking why his m50 with an e36 oil pan won't clear the subframe, I have no hope for the future of e30 enthusiasts.

              Regarding engine mounts: The green mounts worked and so do the Ireland Engineering poly e34 mounts. I've had both, and currently using the poly mounts

                            I am having a problem understanding pin #8 and #9 on the e30 harness (working on an '87 "e" model) there is no #8 or #9 pin to correspond with the 24 and 20 (respectively) on the m50 harness.

                            According to AllData, #8 should be the DME/idle control and #9 should be a speed signal, but those 2 are completely missing on the harness in the car, along with 13, 14, 19 and 20. Am I supposed to use those pins on the chassis side of the e30 harness and they were not used in the engine side of the old 30 harness?

                            Any suggestions?

                            These few wires, the ever elusive 413 ECU, and the exhaust connection to the stock exhaust is all that's holding this project up at the moment.

                            I have read a lot of the other stickies but they are so hard to follow with all the clutter.

                            EDIT: Mods can delete this post if so desired, problems traced, have to get an "i" tach and the coolant sensor from an m20 to have signal to the dash...


                            Thanks,

                                yeah, leave the damn fuel tank closed, no need to crack that can of worms...

                                This place is like catholic school, 2/3 of the students smoke weed on a daily basis, but the faculty seems to convince the outside world that drugs are just in the other schools, the resident pot dealer thinks he's cool because he has the originality to call anyone he doesn't like a homosexual, and most of the little children follow him like sheep, then there's the few with brains, you hardly ever hear from them, perhaps don't even know they exist, but they get all the sh!t done.
