Update time

So from previous posts i have had issues with my 1984 318i, horrible miss fire from idle to about 2500 rpms. after that it will rev and drive like a rocket ship. now then on the what i have done to the car in the last month:

all new vac lines

tested tps

tested mas

new intake manifold gaskets (stud was stripped out, also one gasket was put on backwards which blocked half of the intake port, all fixed up)

new cap

new rotor

new plugs

new wires

No back to the bad, none of which fixed my issue. it is a little more peppy on the road once i get above 2500 rpm (mostly due to the blocked port and stripped out stud). however my issue still remains. the next step is to start replacing fuel components. it is running VERY rich when running between idle and 2500 rpm.

but here the weird part that makes me think its not fuel related. it runs PERFECT when ice cold. once the car starts to get to operating temperature that is when it starts to run bad. so if anyone wants to throw out suggestions feel free.
