IIRC It's a part of the AC system, for the purple high pressure switch, could possibly also be towards the bumper outside temperature sensor, which were green blue in the looms I've thinned down.

Nice progress!

Thx !


Made some progress here and there..

























Im just trying to figure out if i can use a BMW E39 Fuelfume Breatherbox instead of the OEM one, cause it is much more compact or if the valve is missing and i need a separate one or if im just uwsing the OEM box when i find a used one.

It is not far from its second first start up

I was planning to get one of those bodymount shifters, but ended up doing stock style shifter mount during m90 swap to my 240. Maybe some day if you get good results using one?

it is awesome.. i found myself sitting in the car rocking through the gears making some turbowhistle and blowoff noises like a little child :D

it is pretty easy to adapt the oem shifterbag to fit it.. retropete send me the shifter to write a how to. 8t is pretty easy to install it and the gears kick in pretty tight
