Vehicle: 1975 BMW 2002
Engine: BMW M10 (1.8L), originally converted to analog EFI.
** This engine now has BMW, GM, and Ford products
** Rajay 300e turbo charger from old BMW turbo conversion kit
Injection: 42lb/hr Merkur / port injection.
This has been a slightly daunting work in progress. What started out as a MSII conversion has turned into a nearly complete rebuild.
Some tear down pictures - or what I like to call: "Before"

The engine is finally back in / car is almost complete re-wired. I'll take more pictures and notes.
It runs! It turned over and fired the first time!
Idle air control is my hand on the throttle body right now, but it runs great! I let it warm up to 140' and watched the idle enrichment drop down.
Pretty damned amazing to see such an amalgamation of different automotive parts work together.
I'll have the charge-air plumbing done this week, and some of the wiring cleaned up. As soon as that's done, I'll post more pictures.

Good job, and I'd like to hear more driving impressions!
Yeah, everything's worked out. The turbo failed! I found a place that sells parts and opted to rebuild it. I thought about going with a new T3/T4, but after seeing the Rajay F flow specs, and how everything fits I really wanted to keep that turbo in.
Boost doesn't build until about 4100RPM, but when it does - HOLY "crap".
