I got a line on a 95 motor complete with harness 64000 k's for a good price. I just wanted to make sure it was what I needed.

I don't think the conversion is worth all the effort and cost when you can install my softtware on a non-M OBD-II car for $700 and get a very significant performance increase. I can even supply software for OBD-II cars with M50 manifolds.

thats tru mark, but he has an E30...so changing the E30 to OBD2 is not worth it, therefore dropping an OBD1 2.8 instead of 2.5 in E30 is better..

the difference in price between the engines and the extra parts I think the m50 is the right choice.Let alone the swaping it to odbI.
