Jim, how many hours do you think a shop should charge for a swap if you add in auto->manual as well?

Dependant on skill level, I would expect a shop to charge 40 hours for a full swap; possibly more if an auto to manual conversion is also done.

Hello everyone!

Yet another re-vamp of the manual has taken place over the last week.

I have added some info on the 6-speed options available out there as well as details concerning dealing with the secondary air pump (and still passing emisions).

The page count is now up to 87 pages!!! I may make 100 before I'm done...

I am holding the cost where it is too. I will continue to do so as long as posible. I have a new printer, so the per page cost is slightly less, but quality is the same.

So, step right up and order yours today! Even if you don't do a swap, it is a fun to read document, and there is a ton of useful information in there on the ti in particular.

Thanks, and have a safe holiday!

If you need more info (or want to see the car- I notice you are in CT) let me know.

There is OBD-I infor in there, but honestly, that is the easy way to do it (and the ONLY way it was done before I did mine).

I feel sorry for those who have done the OBD-I conversion (from OBD-II) who now have to go through emissions...

My Sister's house is in Enfield, and my Girlfriend is in Hamden. I work on Long Island during the week, so a meet in Hamden/Hartford/somewhere else might be a good idea for sure. The car is in Enfield right now (hybernating for the winter) but it is available for viewing, if you want to check my swap work...

There is a Ct BMWCCA meeting/dinner coming up, that my Girlfriend and I will be attending. If you are not a CCA member, join! Then sign up for the dinner. It is$30.00 and totally worth it! We went last year and I came home with a ride-on Z3 (for my niece) as a door prize... There are always tons of great stuf there! Let me know if interested, and I'll e-mail you the info.

i actually just joined. not sure when i'll be an official member or not. haven't heard anything. If i hear something, i'll let you know if i'll be going ot the banquet. kinda weird showing up knowing no body.

i'd like to go for a ride in the car more than anything... see if it's 'all that' and worth my $$$.

Weather is crappy, so it's probably not going to be any time soon.

Well...

Way back, about 6-8 years ago, I went for a ride in the 97 ti swapped (to OBD-I) by UUC.

After that ride, I was sold. No Downing Atlanta optin ever entered my mind again after that ride.

Your results may vary, but it sure is nice.

Oh, yeah! The manual is still available. In fact, lately they have been selling more than normal...

It is bigger and better than ever, with lots of recently added info and it also includes the official wiring diagrams from BMW for your ti and the donor car you plan to use (so I need that information when ordering).

Other diagrams available for a small fee if you want them for something else too.

Please see the 'For Sale' section for further info. It is a sticky post with more detail.

awesome! thanks for the reply. as soon as paypal authorizes my new CC expect another order

then comes the interesting task of sourcing all the parts, the Detroit area isn't the greatest place to find parts for "Un-American" cars

Well, two things:

1) I am traveling beginning tomorrow through the weekend, SO I won't be able to process any orders.

2) Before you buy your manual, at least have your ti (which I assume you do) and try to find a donor car as close in year as possible to the ti.

Knowing the donor car allows me to send the wiring diagrams with the swap manual. Otherwise, you have to wait and have them sent electronically later. Not a big deal, but it is nice to get the CD ready to go in your machine...

Good tip. I'm rather impulsive. It would seem I may be getting ahead of myself.
As per usual

edit: and yeah I already have my ti '98 Green, manual, 78k miles, active or base. not certain which.
