Joey's E34 Bible. Yes you need one (and still adding to it.)

Ok after being a member of various BMW based sites for some time.
I've gathered up quite a few PDFs and html pages from different sources.
(meaning I'm not the author of any of them nor claim to be)
To create a bible or Book of Eli of sorts for my e34.

With newcomers joining and questions at times can becoming repetitive.
I decided "Hey share the wealth...Knowledge is power and should be free."


This will save you from some flaming from other members and from searching
on a few topics. Much if this is still available to view online at the original sites.
But some of the original links are broken.
I saved all of them over the years for this very reason.


So link this thread, download the PDFs and documents I've uploaded, and/or even add your own it's up to you.

UNDER CONSTRUCTION:
I organized this into different categories So the searching would be more simplified.
However this is by no means complete. I will continue to update as more info is submitted
ad /or I discover more online.

Note* As Members links are added they will be listed on the 1st post. You will receive credit for finding them.
If your the author of said links please update them for consistency so that don't get lost or broken in the abyss of the internet.
For I'll try my best to insure all the links are active. But your assistance is appreciated.


Enjoy!!!!



REQUIRED READING:
These are manuals and various documentation that all e34 owners should have.

Bentley Service Manual
E34 Shop Service Manual
Another E34 Shop service Manual
It's a little easier to read and iirc is updated via BMW. Depending on your Computer you may have to reload it (I did)
BMW Torq measurements
e34 wiring schematics There may be some differences per model.
But the general wiring is the same for all e34s.
E34 Wiring Schematics per year model The good thing about this page is they are in PDF and Zip/Rar. Nice one Dave!!!
E34 FAQ READ HERE Before Posting Questions
Like Andy's thread. This was done by my good friend Attack Eagle aka AE (not angel eyes), or know to some as Rick. Excellent read with much to offer.

OBC RetroFit
OBC IV updated.pdf
The BMW Informantion Site It's a old site but has some decent info.
bmwe34.net/ The author of much of the information. Some of the links on this site are broken. But a definite bookmark for those DIY weekend mechanics like myself.
www.e38.org/e34/ Good site with tons of links. Some links are expired but you can find them using titles via google.
Very rare Guides Articles Manuals and More for you to Download from Ozibimmer (Addam) This is a recent link from BF.C. Ozibimmer put together a list of downloadable manuals which all of us could use at some point. Good job Ozi.

The Fixes:
Just as it says. This is a list of some of the more common issues that plague the e34 platform. There are more I'm sure. But we have to start somewhere.

performance chips
e34 retrofit guide added by ZombieHunter
OBC codes Added by ZombieHunter
obc secrets added by ZombieHunter
Alpina B10 catalog.pdf This is the Official Factory Parts catalog not the brochure.


Aftermarket ECUs:

Megasquirt

my personal MS files I collected over the years. I have two rar files. Both maybe copies of each other. Twice the pleasure... twice the fun.

Megasquirt.rar
Megasquirt II.rarThe title doesn't mean MS2. It's just the second file bundle.

VEMS engine mamagement
http://DTA engine management systems
http://www.haltech.com/
Wheel decoder settings for Megasquirt I found this interactive Excel sheet lingering.
It's a decent worksheet for anyone determining wasted spark and other things in relation.

Performance chips:

E.A.T. performance
https://www.millerperformancecars.com/
Turner motorsports / Jim Comforti chips
Dinan I'm listing this not because they aren't good for the novice.
For they do well for those not familiar with software tuning. However the other mentioned chips kick the snot out of the dinan chips in performance and price.
DUDD performance chips. I swore Dima aka DUDMD from Bimmerforums has a site. But I can't find it.
Contact him directly. He's the man when it comes to Sharking a m60b40
Shogun's Remapped Chips. Shogun is a BF.C moderator plus he has a information site SHOGUN's TRICKS AND TIPS FOR THE SEVEN SERIES
I added Sho to this because he has gotten good reviews on his Remapped Chips.
As well his site, though catered to the mighty seven series has similar info for e34.
He states they are actually not performance chips. They are more or less designed with fuel efficiency in mind.

For those looking to get more power here's a nice formula to get you there.
Recipe 4 Power

Required reading for anyone going with turbo or supercharger applications:
Maximum boost


Where Did you Get that???

Here's a simple list of retailers and locations to find some items for your e34.
I may get flack from forum sponsors but the truth is the truth.
These are the best bets to get parts for e34s hands down.

Maintenance

BMA Parts
AutohausAZ
Getbmwparts.com aka Silver Springs BMW or Tisher BMW. Can't call the dealer for internet pricing. They will not honor it.

Pelican Parts
Bavarian Autosport
ECS Tuning
FCP Euro
Bavarian Engine Exchange
McMaster-Carr For all your little hardware needs.


Performance

Bimmerworld
AKG Motorsport
Racing Dynamics
BMP Design
Ground control suspension systems
KW Suspension Systems My personal preference.
Kmac Suspensions Pretty well know camber plate manufacturer. They also make other items.
Rally Road Yes it's e36 based but we can use the same calipers and brackets
Ireland Engineering Caters more toward earlier model BMWs but has interchangeable parts for the e34 (m30 cars specific)
The Wheel Sanctuary For the wheel whore or hoarder in you.
The Tuner Shop A bit pricey but nice stuff
Transwheel Best keep secret for OEM wheels
UUC Motorwerks
VAC Motorsports
Schmiedmann I stand by these guys.
Good selection of items we can't get in the US. But be prepared to pay a customs fee.
Turbo Charging Dynamics
Todd has some of the best selection of boost items for the m30b35 and other power plants
Active Autowerke
Moosehead-Engineering
TRM Tuning
Nuke Performance Interesting items. Also outside the US so expect a customs fee.
Revshift
Guten Parts More of a rare item place but they have some cool stuff.
Vogtland Suspensions
Eibach performance suspension systems
Hartge I don't know if the site still offers e34 merchandise. However the m5x and s5x crowd may find things good for them.



THE SAGA CONTINUES...

Anyone else having problems viewing these ".mht" files? I don't have a PC, so Internet Explorer web archives aren't working for me.

Thanks for the observation.
These have been uploaded to a off site.
The original pages are from various sites.
I will see what I can do to make the pages more apple friendly.

Hi. for MAC users- download the file with .MHT extension and change extension to .eml - will be able to open it with MS Entourage or MS Oulook.
Good luck!

Fixes:

DIY E34 Fuel Pump Replacement
This has been mentioned previously. But while discussing the topic.
The poster never went into detail or stated where the information could be found. I found it. This was written By Acet from BF.C
Rick's No Start Shark Page Anyone having issues with a no start for a M30 car could find this helpful.
Some of the info maybe similar to the m60 variants and the M50 cars. But it's M30 specific.
Yes it's a old page. Note* After a heads up this link is no longer active. I will continue to watch this incase it pops up elsewhere.

Piston Cleaning This was written by a BF.C member named TCarlisle. It's a very good DIY for those wanting
To clean that nasty ol' carbon off the Pistons while doing a head gasket job. I used it. It was spot on.
DIY E34 Caliper Rebuild This was written by Acet (same guy who wrote the fuel pump DIY.) Pretty thorough with pictures and good documentation.

Sorry for the confusion. It's just a update to the lists.
Each one has been added to the specified list in the first post.
Depending on how long this thread will get.
I wanted to make sure anyone can find what they need on the first post(s).

I will eventually organize it by area (ie: Engine, drivetrain, exterior, interior, etc.)

Thanks for noticing this oversight.

I linked them on my last post.

Ahh.... gotcha. In the future, you may want to specify that the new links have been added to the OP to avoid the confusion. Thanks again for the treasure trove of links

Re: Joey's E34 Bible. Yes you need one (and still adding to it.)

Hey sorry to change the subject but, new guy here, and im about to rip my car apart anyway because of little fender bender. Are there any small mods to give my car a boost? Im looking to eventually do a swap but would like some extra play for the everyday drive.

Maintenance before performance, mein Freund.

However look under upgrades. That should help you out.

I wanted to add something about the AFM adjustment for the M20 and M30 cars.
Link: bmw-e34-afm-adjustment

You can do this without a sniffer to help adjust the AFRs.
The full sweep is roughly 8 quarter turns from zero.



So if you adjust the AFM and you some how screw up the AFRs and run rich or lean. Don't fret Joey's got an app for that.

With the Car off and allen key in the screw, turn the screw clockwise till it stops.
This is full rich and for sake of argument Zero.
Get out a black marker and make a tick mark where the end of the Allen key sticks out above the AFM(assuming you have a "L" shaped Allen Key wrench)
From there turn counterclockwise 1/4 at a time. 4 turns should place you at Stoich AFR.
If you were to proceed to turn the wrench 4 more times now using the 4 tick marks you made prior it will stop at full lean. Completing the 8 turn sweep.

Warning

I am not with you while you're attempting to do this. Your AFM maybe different (I doubt it)
If you proceed to turn the wrench past the stops in either direction rich or lean.
You can very well destroy your AFM if you try to go past the stops.

I proposed going rich first due to the fact your basically screwing the AFM screw in.
It's a natural movement from which it makes it easier to adjust accordingly.
However going lean isn't as accurately defined in the sense of touch.

For those with sausage fingers who break things on grasp...Just to give you an idea of the sweep movement of the screw.
It should be fluid with very little resistance till it comes to a stop. If it feels like it stopped. It probably did.
Do not use a Allen Key Socket. You will go past the Stop. You will not be able to feel it till after it breaks.
Just spring for the BS little Home depot Metric and SAE allen key wrench set. You'll thank me later.

This method I used helped me determine where the Stoich AFR was located.

I had an recent and very last emissions issue. next year I'll have historic plates... YESSSSS.
Come to find out I adjusted the AFM too rich. I did this process (with some GSP just in case) and passed my emissions with flying colors.

notes: AFR = AIR/FUEL ratio, AFM = AIR/FUEL Meter I know it's confusing

True it is for idle mixture. However it also affects acceleration for it controls the amount of air the vane allows to pass through.

To say it's the easy way to tune your AFRs. That it is not. So thank you for alerting me to clear this up.

That said if any M30 or m20 owners are having issues with their idle mixture or if their car has a hesitation when hitting the gas.

It's an option to look at.
