Mein Auto: ///Motorized Vehicles
Drive by wire; should be a servo-motor on the throttle body (at on least USA versions).

Was the replacement engine an exact same year replacement, or just another generic BMW engine?

Randy,
many thanks,
same year engine but from a 520i saloon,
also kept original inlet manifold and loom.
I have re-connected the loom(s) a couple of times to verify connections but can't get fuel to pump.
