I have hesitated to post here, as usually I am able to find some kind of
instruction guide somewhere via google, but I am seriously stumped and un
able to find the info I really need.
Some quick history: i have a 87 325is e30 m20 2.5liter with conforti TMS
chip. all other upgrades have been replaced with turbo componants (headers,
I ordered a SPA Turbo bmw 325 turbo kit not realizing it was for 95-99 year
325i's (e36) . rather then returning it, I chose to modify to make it all
fit and stuff. The manifold was converted easily however now because the
only way to fit the "log" style manifold made for an e36 was to flip it over
so that instead of the turbo being mounted on the underside of the manifold
at the back of the engine (closest to front window) it is mounted on the top
of the manifold at the front with the compressor at the front and the
blower behind it ..so my first question.
Q: is it ok that the compressor and blower have traded positions?
Now the reason why i need all this help is cause my kit (spa turbo) came
with no instructions.
so i am just winging it. and for my next dilema that is completely stopping
completion, is that;
A) I have no idea where all the hoses go, i don't know which are supposed to
be hooked up to vacuum before throttle, after throttle, etc etc So what
would i need to connect to where
there is one vacuum on the BOV, there is one for stock FPR, and one for the
new AFPR and also there are connectors on a couple pipes for the intercooler
piping. what are they for:?? ALSO there are 3 holes on my wastegate, the
larger one on the bottom of the wastegate i assume is for the boost guage,
but what about the other 2? one smaller on bottom and one large on side.
AFPR...do i hook that up to my stock FPR? it also has vacuum line...it will
goto same spot as stock FPR for vacuum ?
ok so with that out of the way, next i really could use some help figureing
out which tube piece goes where in order where should the BOV tube be
placed..etc etc anyones 2 cents are welcome
