I have it intalled i just need to put it back in the car.. well Im kidna conserned becasue there is nothing that will support the AMF.. it will be bolted to nothing and just clamped into the hoes and thats it!
plus i have this wire that was bolted onto the air filter but i can just let that hang down and its no big deal
anyone have this problem with there 87 bimmer or older?
ok im left with no choise since there is nothing to mount the AMF on too... im gonna cut the filter top box so all thats left is the mounting things and bolt it back in and then just polt the AMF to it.. it should work
now i just gota find my dremel
just got done cutting the air filter box up all thats left is half of a side... with 2 holes , one to screw it into the car the other is to screw into the AMF I just put it in
well i hope i did everything alright... kinda scared.. it was hard to hear the hissingn sound since there is a lound bad exhaust in back, clicking noise and some kinda broken fan noise in the engine but i still heard the hissing... what will happend if i did it wrong like will the engine blow up!?!? ahh im scared the AMF dosnt really have that much support and thats also scary
ekk has anyone ever put this damn cone filter in an 87 before!?
lol schneider... calm down. Nothings going to happen. Just technically break down the engine into its components. And you need to rehook that sensor up btw.

eh right now its just hanging there

oo btw i dont know if this started happending before or after the cone filter but if i let the car idle for about 2-3 min it drops from 1000RPM to about 600RPM wtf is up with that? its kinda scary cuase it seems like its gonna just turn off or sumthin
Whens the last time u had ur Oxygen sensor replaced. MOst of the time last can cause random idling. That is somewhat normal also, the engine just runs at higher rpm's to get the oil circulating then it will drop down, I would still get a new oxygen if you haven't already.
