Anyone done this? What pistons might be good for use?<br>Is it possible to keep the 1.8 head? Or must the injection be the early type and throw on an E21 or earlier?<p>Can the intake manifold from an ealry be retrofitted to the fuel distributor etc from a late(80-83) K-jet system? Any improvement in flow? Possible head arrangement would then be limited to any of the M10 heads correct?<p>Thanks, let's livin up guys, I know we are all here and we are all alive.<p>Jeremiah Grover

I often hear of a 2 liter crank in a 1.8, but I rarely (if ever) hear of replacing a 1.8 head with an E21 or earlier head. But then again, I'm in CA where if you have the 1.8, you can't go to an earlier head an stay emmissions legal.<p>Check out:<br>http://silkpresence.com/BMW/engine/Late320i-2.0l-conversion.html<p>It will give you some information on rod-piston-head compatibility issues, though not precisely the S14 into M10 information you want.<p>Hope this helps a little. I know from the 02 board that you are way beyond me on these issues.<p>At least someone responded, right? ;)<p>ljp

Really I am only trying to keep up with those who are sick race/engine/power freaks(all BMW) or who can't afford a Bimmer fast enough already. Sort of a product of my environment, but it keeps me on my toes informed on the best upgrades for my tuning skills,money,and preferences.<p>Jeremiah Grover<br>70 2002(retired early)<br>83 320iS<br>71 R75/5
