I have all the mechanical hooked up and 95% of the wiring. I need to know if anyone has put a m20 into a 318? I need the colour codes from the 318i harness and the colour codes from the 325i connector.I figure I will run this engine for a bit while I look for a good m50.Thing is it needs to run first..:D

But you are pretty far away man. We would have to do it by phone or scan a few key pages.

Ok This is From The Engine side of the plug on the 318i to the Chassis side of the plug on a 325i Engine.
318i-325i
White/Blue-White/Blue
Blue/White-Violet/green
Brown/green-Black/Brown
Brown-Brown
Violet/green-Violet/red(both large guage)
Blue-Blue
Blue/Violet-Blue/yellow
Green/yellow-Green/yellow(both large guage)
Greeb-Green(both large guage)
Black/yellow-Black/yellow and (smallguage) black/green
Left on the 325i side You'll have a Yellow/White wire(Fuel rate ouput)
Black(Engine speed output)
Brown/black(Check Engine light)
Plus some other wires but I never found there functions.
I never tested this plug and made the conections based on the Feature that wire did and not it's color.
