looking for a carburetor for for an M30
hey guys, got a strange request. Im gonna be supercharging my e28 535, and I dont feel like running a piggyback or standalone ecu. also, a carb will let me run more boost, and with a standalone ignition box, everything should run great. So I heard that some e12s came with a carbureted m30 in them. This would fit my needs perfectly.
Anyone know where I can go to get my hands on one?
You'll have to look further back - E3/E9
No US E12 came with a carb. You'll have to search for an E3/E9 2500/2800CS or Bavaria motor or parts, or go to European sites to find it. And of course you'll need the intake manifold.
Personally, if I was doing this, I'd go turbo rather than super and look for the parts from the E23 745i. IMHO it would be much easier, since there is a 745i community to help.
Euro 630, like a GM quadrajet. Perhaps on some
Euro 530's also. Manifold stateside is rare and expensive.
