1976 BMW 2002 conversion with
1989 M3 S14 engine. VIN 2744236. All the handling and character
of the ’02 with the power of the legendary S14 engine! This
bullet-proof, clean burning engine is extremely reliable
and nearly doubles the horsepower of the original ’02 engine.
The conversion was performed by members of the infamous Skidmark
Racing Team (see www.skidmarkracing.net for examples of
their high quality cars) in 1999. The S14 engine had approximately
60k miles on it at the time of the conversion and I’ve added
10k mi since I bought it in August 2003.
