    M20B29 w/ Triple Webers into my '71 2002

    This thread will contain the building of two M20b25's to be fit into two very different 2002's.


    THE BACK GROUND

    This project is being put together by myself of Ireland Engineering (This is NOT something I'm doing on the job, it is a pet project build with my free time.)

    I love the idea/novelty of a weber powered M20 in a 2002. I know it won't make as much horsepower as a set of ITB's or turbos, but frankly I'm not building this for big numbers, anyone can do that. The sound of three webers at WOT and the novelty of tuning carburetors are a few of my reasons in going this direction. This car is intended to be a fun-to-drive Outlaw 2002.

    ENGINE #1

    Looks like the previous driver didn't change the oil that much. The cam journals were grooved beyond the point of repair. Took a toll on the rockers as well.


    the block sitting with good company


    The car that this engine will someday reside in. My daily driven 1970 2002. The plan will be to keep the exterior as stock looking as possible (i.e. no front spoiler, etc.)


    ENGINE #2
    This engine is also in good company!


    A turbo tii!? Das ist schön!


    engine #2 and a hacked stock manifold to take some dimensions. Groma made up a set of M20-2002 motor mounts. And unlike the other ones out there these retain the same engine angle as in the E30.


    Headers to fit in the 2002.

      You may see your sway bars in there.
      Keep up the good work. I am also pro carb too

          Awesome. Was that red/yellow flared car bought from Daniel in San Jose? Im not sure if Daniel was the owner or just posting it for sale for the owner!

              Would it be possible for others to get those headers? I'll be putting my M20 driveline back into my 02 in December when the body work is done.

                      I've never understood the IE hate, been ordering parts for years almost exclusively between them and Blunt and have yet to be disappointed.

                      On topic, I love this project. I almost pulled the plug on starting an m20 swap last year but just not ready to make a commitment on what I'd like to do just yet. To me, the the complete badassery of triple carbs trumps the benefits of FI.

                          Op have u looked into the early m20 weber setup on the e21? Im sure te intake manifold from that engine would help with the fabication process
