Timo, the wheels are the metric size wheels originally fitted to the E28 M535i. The "device" is the fuel distributor,a part of the Pierburg-Solex Zenith DL injection system, which ALPINA favoured at the time. Pretty much identical to the K-Jetronic, which by the way also uses plastic fuel lines.This fuel injection system has proven to be quite problematic,and the fact that no new spare parts are available, have led to many ditching it in favor of a modern injection system. The system was also taken a part on my car, so there had been some problems on it also. Perhaps a reason why the
car was for sale.

Yes, I thought that they were TRX's, either 390's or 415's. Anyway they are rare, that model I mean. I haven't seen any of them in Finnish roads and even the pictures of them are rarely seen.

As I see the picture again, it is sooooooo obvious. I had a hunch that it is fuel injection related, because it looked pretty much like in Audi K-jetronic, but I didn't know that Alpina was using that kind of system too. I have always thought that only L-jetronic or motronic was used in Alpina's. It's always good to learn something new.

BR,
Timo

Stock exhaust? Try Double 02 Parts in Hayward CA. www.double02salvage.com they sell new parts.

For a hot rod exhaust, you could try your local hot rod exhaust shop.

Where are you located? Are you requried to run a cat converter?

Hi. I am new to this forum. I have an '82 633csi and I've been vaguely thinking about doing a motor swap...I've read some of the posts about guys thinking about the doing the same thing and it seems doable. But I have some questions. What are the different 745 motors? M104/6? What are the differences? Is it possible to get 350hp out of all years of 745s? Or just certain years? Since my 633 has the Ljet injection system, does it matter which 745 motor I would want? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!! Thanks!!

-Mike

Welcome Mike,

There are two turbo six motors : M102 and M106. The M102 is a 3.2l Jetronic; the M106 is a 3.4l Motronic. It doesn't matter what is currently in your car, since you will probably rip it out anyway. Yes both motors can produce 350hp. The M106 has a better torque curve and has better engine management. The M102 is easier to install and run. But if you have a choice, get the M106.
