    This is the coding plug:





    From what I understand, if you do a 24v swap into a 318i(S) and keep its cluster, you'll need to replace this plug with one out of a 325i(S).

    Oh god, get an OBD1 intake right away ! haha


    Good work, we swapped S52's both around the same time, thats interesting.


    idk if you got yours running yet, but been driving mine around, it RIPS... best choice for sure.

    I had to space my driver side motor mount up a tad bit to get more comfortable clearence for that booster and the TPS sensor wouldn't plug in with the res in the way.

    odd because the m50nv that was in there before was fine without spacers.

    Why not use an OBD1 intake manifold? 30% less restrictive than your OBD2 mani.

    Update 6/20/2013:

    I have my power steering reservoir mounted and my lines ran. I have the line coming from the rack hooked up to the small port on the reservoir and the big port has a hose running to the bottom "inlet" on the power steering pump. The high pressure line runs from the top "outlet" on the pump to the top "inlet" on the steering rack. Hopefully this is the correct way.



    I shaved the fins off of my intake manifold and it clears my brake booster by an 1/8 inch.



    And lastly I ordered Enkei 92 15x8 +25




    Thanks for looking!

    UPDATE 6/17/2013:

    I got the motor bolted in yesterday! Feels like a big step even though instal was very easy. Took about 15 minutes with me and one other guy helping.



    Also I tinted my tail lights red. I think it offers a cleaner look.



    I fixed the cigarette problem I was having, I had pinched a wire under my driver seat.

    Going to work on the paint on the trunk lid some today, as well as space my pass. side motor mount about 3/8 inch to give exhaust a little more clearance. As well as make the driver side sit a tiny bit better.

    Power for windows/blower is *indirectly wired through engine harness which I assume you don't have installed yet :P

    Email me and I'll see if I can't help with the short

    UPDATE 6/15/2013:

    I mounted my FPR on the frame rail next to where the hard lines end. I will take a picture tomorrow.

    Also my motor is bolted into the car as of tonight. I will be doing lots over the next 2 weeks while I wait for my harness and ECU. Such as power steering, driveshaft, clutch line, etc.

    BIG PROBLEM:

    So I was looking at my fuse box and noticed I had a blown fuse, I looked up what is was and it is my cigarette lighter and power antenna. So I did some investigation with a voltmeter and found out my cigarette lighter power wire is grounding out somewhere. So I followed the wire to a wire plug above my steering column and un plugged it to check which side of the wire was grounding out... and to much dislike it is the body side of the plug, not the cigarette lighter side.

    I will be reading through ETMs after I post this to see if I can find out what is going on. Any suggestions would be AWESOME.

    Another piece to the puzzle is my power windows do not function lately.. not sure why. They did when I bought the car but not sense I put my interior back together.

    That picture is correct, trace the fuel lines under car and follow that picture..Route the fpr wherever, mine is currently attached to the m42 air box bracket. Buy a lot of fuel hose and mess with locations and replace old lines..

    Damn, okay thank you. I just put my dash all back together last night.. And can some one clarify how to plumb in the FPR. I found this picture but some one else could chime in it would be very helpful.

    Thank you! This is not a 318is just a 318i. So I will leave the plug unless it becomes a problem.
