    Question about the wiring.

    I'm looking at the schematic and I see a "C101". Like this:



    Then when I'm looking at the M50 diagram I see an "X20" under the same topic. (charging)



    So, does this mean that those two wires have to be spliced together?

    I take it we're trying to retain the plug and not hack up the body harness? Like this:

    don't know if this was ever added:

    Wiki says that 944 booster has a 10mm shaft, but it's actually 12mm and has to be modified just like e21 ones.

    Point me in the right direction. There's an extra plug next to x20 plug (ABS?). Can I remove it?

    Some can't afford it. Others just like the g260 better.

    Personal preference, i think. Just wondering why you're going with the zf

    You have to use the drive shaft that matches the transmission.

    Please use the search function.

    Any reason you're going with the zf and not a g260?

    I've almost finished my wiring......except for 2 things. I used the wiring breakdown someone posted on this site, VERY HELPFUL! It lists 85-84 325i. However my car was a 318i, but it seems to be almost identical.
    Anyway, I'm not using the connector from the E36 harness....cause I dont have the body side of the connector.
    Everything seems to be fairly easy to understand BUT.....

    1- On my 318 harness, I have 2 separate wires for the fuel pump, and the O2 sensor relay.......on the new E36 harness, they're both on the same wire and relay. Do you guys just run the two off the same wire on the new harness?

    2- My old 318, had one wire for the "coolant temp sender". The new E36 harness has 2, one for the "engine temp" and one for "Engine coolant temp" so..........

    Any help would be great....even a link
    Thanks
    M10 or M42?

    "325i" doesn't specify e30 or e36. If e30, yes, it needs cut down to clear the pan.

    Extraordinarily helpful thread!

    One question though that I didn't see in the first link; I'm going to be using a motor from a 92 525i, so the oil pan etc is all taken care of already. Do I need to modify my flywheel at all if I plan on using my 325i transmission/clutch?
