    I think you can find most of that in a repair manual and I'm pretty sure you can downoad the haynes manual for free online.


      Yeah the Bentley should have the majority or even all of that info.

      I thought everyone who even thought of working on their own E30 had a Bentley?


        give me a sec. almost done


          you are going to have to convert to metric when needed, i dont have the time but here you go.

          1.Note: At cranking speed, engine temperature normalized, throttle open. 142-156psi
          2.Cylinder Head Bolts [1]

          Step #1 60 Nm (45 ft lb) .

          Wait 15 minutes!

          Step #2 Torque Angle 33 °

          Run engine warm 25 minutes!

          Step #3 Torque Angle 25 °

          3.Valve clearance for intake and exhaust should be:

          Cold [1] 0.008 in (0.20 mm)

          Hot[2] 0.010 in (0.25 mm)

          4.SAE 15w-50
          5.see above
          6.Without Filter Change 3.75 L
          With Filter Change 4.0 L
          7. can't find it. stick a gauge on your car and figure it out.
          8. assuming your car is a manual

          Look for the label on your tranny:
          GREEN LABEL* GLS

          RED LABEL* AF

          NO LABEL** 80W GL-4
