Very nice, love the details! Hope the POR15 holds up, I have nothing but bad experiences with that stuff after a couple of years.

Morning Everyone,

Had a few items arrive the other day.

Cargo carrier came in. This will be used on the 122 and my 325xi (currently mounted it to the 325xi).




Bought an 850 NA TB from a friend. Started cleaning it up. I guess I can swap out the plate for a 960 one that doesn't have the plastic piece for some better airflow. So if you have one, please let me know.



10 mins in the Ultrasonic cleaner.




Another round in the cleaner.


Radiator arrived last night. My current plan is to drill holes for the inlet, outlet, and mounting...










Thanks,

Good Evening Everyone,

After a day of battle, the radiator is in. Should have enough room for a fan setup. However, front nose portion by the hood latch will need cut/ modified. Will also have limited room for a intercooler. Still trying to figure what size I need for my application.





Thanks,

Good Evening Everyone,

Got the intake manifold back from a coworker. As always, he did an amazing job! Bolted up and looks good. Will get it decked and the off for powdercoating.

Good Evening Everyone,

Starting putting the front back together. I have decided to mount the intercooler behind the radiator and put the fan in front due to space.











Thanks,

Looking so good!

Hey, do you know the purpose of that plastic wedge on the 850 throttle plate?

I'm hoping it's to reduce the on/off tendency of that TB on the 2.3 liter. I don't have the plastic thing and it feels like I'm at 1/2 throttle if I just barely touch the pedal.

Looking good. Why haven't you ported the exhaust manifold at the same time that you machined it flat? The hole is smaller than even your wastegate port, and the first thing smart people do is port the manifold even with a td04 stock turbo. Let alone a larger one like what your using. Especially with a non stock intake!

No idea. Have 960 plate to swap it if I donít like it.

That’s just common side effect of going to NA throttle body on turbo whiteblocks. Plastic plate or not...I imagine it’s the same for using that TB on redblocks.
Whiteblock turbo TB is substantially smaller maybe for this reason

Some don’t like it. I do. That modification along with lightened/underdrive crank pulley we’re the only two performance mods my wife noticed on the 850

Edit... the plastic on came on early na 850s, dint remember the reason anymore

Good Afternoon,

Sorry for the lack of posts. Having a little one makes things a challenging. Haha.

Intake manifold back. The thermostat neck will be modified. Also continue to work on the wiring.

Looking great, keep going!

I know the challenge, I pulled my Amazon apart almost three years ago right after having my first daughter and now with my second daughter I'm lucky to log a few hours a week in the garage if that.
