Thank you guys. Your support was essential for this E34 project. Since I already got the fuel pump with the regulator of the M50, I will just put it in as this is would be original. Now I have another thing that I noticed. I live at an altitude of 1000 Meters above sea level and it only takes 15 minutes to become at the coast. At the place where I live, at morning start up, everything is excellent. However, through out the day, my idle RPM is never stable and keeps swinging between 0.6 and 1.2 approximately, and all the lights in the car goes weaker and stronger with the RPM. However, at the sea level, the idle RPM swinging is much less severe and sometimes almost not noticeable. In addition, when I am parking, I can notice a little black smoke emissions from the exhausts when I hit the gas pedal almost all the way through. I attached a video showing this behavior last night after coming back home from a 20 minutes drive. View My Video
