I tried a BMW 300 and couldn't get it to run well both at WOT and throttle. It was either way too rich at idle or too lean at WOT. Delk (frequent poster from a while back who used to post very cryptic messages) had a 300 in one of his cars. He claimed it worked well, but didn't know the origins/history of his pump. Also, he lived out in the boonies, so didn't need to spend much time at idle.

I know of another who tried a Shrick 292 with marginal results. Same problems I experienced with the 300.

Finally, there's several people who make 284s and 288s and reccomend them specifically for tiis. Milton had a 284 regrind from TEP. His car ran OK, but he said the gain was minimal. Of course, this must be taken with a grain of salt b/c six months later he was bolting in an E30 M3 motor.

Anyway, my rambling thoughts. . .

Good luck
'72 2002tii

Any thoughts on cams for 72 tii besides stock?

Thanks for any info/thoughts/misc rambling
