The crank position sensor on the "i" engine is on the harmonic damper as well.

Rudy has a 2.7 "i" engine, not sure how his is configured whether he swapped flywheels and damper. (e engine is heavy dual mass flywheel).

If you get this sorted out I have a tuned "e" computer from MarkD. Granted its not tuned for 2.7L but it may be a good start for you, if you're interested in it.
Just to add a note to anyone looking into this, I'd recommend not using the E front damper, not only because of the lack of a trigger wheel, but the fact that the weight and harmonics may not be ideally suited a higher revving engine may cause issues down the road, especially if the motor gets used hard.

My motor was, and to keep things simple, a 325i with 2.7 internals. Everything else on the outside was from the 325i, including harness, sensors, damper, flywheel, etc etc.
