im currently in the process of restoring a 1987 280i hardtop with the aim of turning it into a street/track weapon. at the moment i have a getrag 5 speed to replace the auto and im stuck between putting in a small block ford V8 in it or keeping the six banger. does anyone know what options i have to replace the horrible Bosch k-jet system? so far i can only find the Offenhauser 4-barrel manifold, but these cost an arm and a leg brand new, not to mention fright costs. im thinking about fabricting my own triple-weber manifold, as i already got three carbies sitting around. any input at all on this would be greatly appriciated, cos the cars not doing me any good sitting around my yard lol.
