very when at idle, until it was fully warmed up it would be on the verge of dying without a bit of throttle

Oh yeah seen that, and with it being modified I think there will be a big different compared to stock, back in the 80's we had loads of 323i's, best one was the 1979 BMW 323i, that thing was fast! Used just about beat an early high compression e30 325i D reg that a friend had at the time. But then destroyed that engine I think 1988 and bought a brand new engine from coopers leicester at a cost of £2000 but the brand new engine was no way near as fast as the old one! I'm building a tribute car just like that now same colour and everything! Will be posting soon!
