    hi to all, first of all this has been a long process i have a 91 e36 320i. with a chassis loom from a late 95 318i signature and i have changed the engine to a 7/96 m52 2.8. i changed the loom and dropped the engine in used the ews keys all the ews gear from the m52 and it started straight away and ran well. still runs well but i have a few probs with the x20 fuse box plug and CEL. i have no engine light. im unsure if my car is 0bd2 or obd1 and same for the new engine could someone please help me im pretty new to bmw's and i think i took on to much of a project to bypass ewsII. how do i tell if engine and car are obd1 or 2. and how do i get the cel to work? if i had to bypass ews again i would of put the m50 loom and ecu on the m52. any help in basic terms would be awsome thanks guys

    I'm not 100% on what your actually asking here - If the engine is running, why do you want to bypass the EWS ?

    And for the CEL, the European E36's don't have the light, and have no provision's for one.

    The only way to tell there's a problem is by code reading (Or wait until the engine stops or something, then it might be obvious theres a problem )

    i changed the chassis loom with a ews compatible one so it would run, i had a faulty maf and just guessed it was changed it and it runs perfect. but got an early rev limit at 5000. wasnt sure if the engine light worked or not but not ment to have one at all. and i was missing some wires in the c101 to the x20 took hours and hours to find the pinouts, compared them 98 percent of them match up. the exhaust flap solinoid isnt hooked up and the dual temp for the air con is there and i have no abs but the loom is there got to do a speed signal wire to the dme to fix the early rev limit
