Lowly looking TI?! (confused)

Not here, else where in the BMW and car community. Plenty of room in the bay for just about anything BMW has made in the last 25 years.

I am surprised nobody has ever put in an S38b38 and added a turbo. I imagine some Norwegian or Swed has.

Ahh... Elsewhere... Ok. Dem guy's jus dont know. Gosh the division in the US these day's! Hehe

Looks like a great TI from here, great color!

Wanted a normal color but it's growing on me. interior is odd too at sand color. Might change it out at some point but not now just drive it and enjoy the stealth of it.

So it had some odd misfires one the way home from picking it up and I thought omg is the head gasket done? So first thing I normall do when purchasing a car is check the plugs and fuel. Fuel pressure was spot on. Plugs were foul'd and nasty two prong bosch which I spent 17 dollars on new single electrode NGK which I have found to be the best in 6 cylinder variants. Car pulls great in all gears with no more misfire codes due to loose plugs. If your plug is not grounded how do you expect it to fire properly. lol.

double post odd happening on some other sites too.

Ratio in the car is a 3.23 from a Z3M with a finned differential.

Was having some serious issues with it but after breaking out scan code reader it had a faulty maf and the battery was barely charged so BMW's as we know love their clean voltage. Swapped a good battery in and swapped out a kassell ECU for a TRM with just a simple tune and EWS delete.

The kassell fowled out plugs that were new so I put in it single electrode NGK, I plan to have the ecu reflashed at some point next spring. Looking at my schricks in the basement they are asking to go into the engine.
