    Hi,

    New to this forum and already enjoyed reading a few of the very many threads.
    Clearly a lot of knowledge on this forum.

    Project is building a lightweight car circa 550-600kg but using BMW 4 cyl engine and mechanicals. So, looking into the tuning options of the M42/M43& version/M44 and the various known issues of them, guess a lot of reading to come.

    Hope I won't be asking to many stupid noob questions.

    Thanks for welcome.

    It will be a little time before it gets into the nitty gritty details but gradually building the wish list, and first decision is which of the engine blocks to go for.

    Favourite at the moment is the M42 94/95 year, looks a good solid engine with plenty of potential incremental power to be had.
