    Euro Pre-Facelift 318i 1983

    Hi guys!
    I want to tell you a story of my E30.
    I bought it last year. It had semi-dead but still smothly running m10b18 with oil consumption of 1 quart per 60 miles if you push the pedal to the metall hah. Also this engine was converted to EFI from Lada( ECU called January 5.1)by previous owner because of worn out Jetronic system. But this ECU wasn't adjusted properly and fuel consumption was around 10mpg. But accleration was quite ok, maybe because of oil compression(15 bar in each cylinder). Still remeber the smell of oil after drag races between traffic lights.
    Now it has aluminium block m52b28 btw
    I did some ordinary mods, i will try to write about them here, but my english is not as good to write big good text. Sorry for it.

      Hi
      No, it's color from lada color palette. I don't know the true color name, but "Dark beige-brown" is written on the paint can
      Originally, my car was bronzetbeige, but everything is re-painted

        Today i would like to write about Russian EFI system- January 5.1
        Previous owner converted m10b18 to this EFI instead of Jetronic. This system is very popular in Russia because every EFI Lada has it and it's cost about 60$ with ECU and complete engine loom with maf and all the sensors( all you need to do with the loom is to lengthen some wires and fix ECU in glove compartment)
        Then you need to wire stock fuel injectors, fuel pump relay and make custom throttle body to install J5.1 TPS or install lada throttle body with its original tps(very simple). After that you need to weld a piece of lada crankshaft pulley(with reference plate, don't know how to translate it) to M10B18 crankshaft pulley to make CPS work(also need cps sensor bracket, but it's can be made from 1mm metall sheet). Finally, you should fine a place with good ground signal to fix ignition module.
        You still have all your jetronic wiring in the car, but if you unplug jetronic ECU nothing happen and car still runs and starts.
        The benefits of this ECU is
        Cheap
        Reliable
        Easy to install
        New sensors cost nothing(TPS cost 5$, CPS cost 3$, MAF 30$)
        If you set up it very well and engine is ok, stock m10b18 with this ECU can produces up to 120hp hah
        Everyone here know it and can easily adjust it and add new features (launch control, antilag, shift light etc)
        You can convert it to APS+intake air temp sensor if you want forced induction.

          I found some photos of my car that was made 3 years ago by previous owner.
          He bought the body with engine for 300$ and restored it as he could.
          As i mentioned before, we suffer from salt on our roads in winter and body of cars become rusty very quick, if you don't use anti-rust coatings
