Might be okay.Bump for me...
Thinking about saving the cash on the engine management tuning part and just having the MS43 unit coded to EU2 330 specification. Part number: 12 14 7 552 618.
Thoughts? Besides the intake camshaft and the .2 displacement difference, the engine would essentially be the same. MAF, TB, Manifold/DISA, Fuel Injectors, Headers and O2 sensors. I have a set of stock 330 cams in my basement collecting dust and can throw the intake cam in if necessary. I think it will adapt for the missing displacement and make some great numbers. Looking to get this project moving as soon as I receive the engine harness promised to me by Bavarian Motor House.
Happy New Years!
Honestly I would see how it runs with a stock 330 tune before making any other decisions. It might run a bit rich, but it'll probably actually be more appropriate than the 328 tune, simply because you're getting a good bit more air flow than with the stock manifold.Would be great if you have time. Thanks TP.

Fair enough - I understand not wanting to get too crazy with building up the engine. I only mentioned it since a good tune would cost about as much as a good condition rotating assembly anyway.I don't want to go that far. I'm quite happy with my lil 2.8. I want to see how much I can make with that before I get into internal swaps. Next step is to get that LSD and replace all the rear end bushings with the AKG 90A and weld in the TMS kit, because I'm certain that there has to be some kind of damage back there, although I'm hoping it's clean. Checked out okay with the Class Action Lawsuit, but I don't think they really looked at it that much to really be able to tell if it was cracking.
No matter, if you're still outside of DC for your internship we could meet up and do some coding. Engine harness is on it's way should arrive by the 7th. Need to get boots and I'm done.
I'm talking to Chris @ RPM Motorsports Ltd,.They are overpriced on everything. It is one man company, his name is Zach, he charged my credit card right away and did not ship the DME. After 4 days I asked to cancel my order because I can't wait more, he said he will ship within 3 days. He also charged me canadian sales tax and their terms and policy says US buyers don't pay tax.
It took him 20 days to do partial refund, he charged me %30 restocking fee and he never shipped the DME. I am in credit card despute now, zach is totaly not honest person, don't do bussiness with these bums.
