I Have just completed my BMW E36 318i Turbo Conversion, I have made all the necessary changes including an uprated ECU chip which compensates the fuel air ratio.
It all seems to be working fine, however, after running for a while, once the car warms up it just seems to cut out. It will restart again after about an hour. t seems like the engine is flooding but I am not sure!!
Is there some sort of safety cut out device if the engine over-heats?
Is there anybody out there who has had the same problem or who knows what my problem is?

Please help me!!!!

On the E36 M52 engine, there isn't one as far as I can tell. For the 318's engine, it could be a different story, I do not know.
