You have my favorite color ti. Any pics of the engine bay, what did you do with the secondary air pump and down streams o2s?

Thanks friend!

I just omitted the secondary air pump because it goes where the battery is in the ti. The downstream o2 sensors are still hooked up, but not sure if they do anything at this time. I’m still learning the order of operations on these m52’s.

Right now I’m focusing on the fact that it’s not shifting into 4th gear.

There is a pic of the engine bay toward the end of the first page.

Cool. I just picked up a 99 alpine white with a blown head. I'm swapping out everything from my 328i in it. Prepping the 328 for my l99 swap.

Now that sounds serendipitous!

I havenít updated in a while because Iíve been having crazy troubles with the transmission. When I got everything up and running I took it for a test drive and it wouldnít shift into fourth gear. It seemed to be shifting late and kind of hard. The craziest thing is that if I put it in one, it would shift through 1, 2, and three. I racked my brain for weeks trying to figure out what happened. I scanned the Internet relentlessly. I found one thread about a guy with the same symptoms that mine had. He ended up changing the transmission computer and it fixed it. I didnít think it could be that simple, but I changed it out, and the damn thing is just perfect now. Moral of the story: do not plug-in or unplug a transmission computer with the battery connected. It can/will fry the computer. Thanks for your support and your knowledge base.
