I am not sure how you plan to check or adjust the A/F ratio unless you get on a 3 or 4 gas analyzer to say the least.

I stress over and over again the importance of getting the T-bodies synched, base idle adjusted and most improtantly CO adjusted.

You will not be sorry you did this I promise. Even if you get a new AFM from BMW that is no guarantee that the idle by pass setting is correct or the spring tension on the barn door is right either.

If you want the car to run right you really need to get this all checked out and then see what your car is doing.

HTH Eric

P.S. I waited way to long to have this work done and could kick myself for waiting!
