However, I did pull the motor out of a '66 2000TI, and it was equipped as follows:
-45DCOE 15/16's with low serial numbers, setup as for 1800TISA;
-large, black cylindrical air filter, with one paper element and intake horn at each end;
-121T head, apparently ported/polished at the factory;
-an unusual camshaft-- no number on the forward flange (where usually there is a "1", "2", or "3", and the flange seems to be hand welded (with beautiful craftsmanship) to the shaft;
-standard sized valves for 2-liter motor;
-cylinder bore is the same as the 2-liter motor;
-pistons have crowns, with recesses for the valves.
-exhaust manifold had some sort of whitish ceramic coating on it. Unfortunately I didn't grab the manifold before the wrecker towed the car away.
If anyone has any information as to how this setup ended up in a 2000TI, I'd like to hear about it. I noticed on the Schnitzer website, http://www.ac-schnitzer.de/englisch/sport/historie/index.htm that Josef Schnitzer won the 1966 German Championship in a 2000TI. Perhaps in '66 BMW setup some of the 2000TI's with the TISA equipment to get into the race?
