Dan,

Is this engine running the B35 head and intake instead of the M106 turbo head and intake? Can the ECU be adapted for use on our modded 745s?
Thanks.

David

Yes this is a B35 head, and no this ecu would be quite the job to convert, the biggest problem is the Auto transmission. The ecu that is best suited for the 745i would be the Bosch 059, which comes in the e28 535i. this ecu is a nice control unit and is inexpensive for doing this. the only problem is the auto trany, I would have to look into seeing what it would take to make a control unit for a e28 535i auto trany work. but probably not worth the hassle, if you have a manual trany then ya no prob.
