We're thinking of putting it in our BMW E12
For the looks we would like to use an earlier intake manifold (L-jetronic) like this:
Is it possible to just swap the intake and leave the motronic setup?
I've seen motronic 1.3 engines (M30B35) with an oldschool intake manifold, so I was hoping this would work to.
If this is possible, so just screw the Throttle Housing etc on the old manifold, what extras need to been done? for instance, what to do with the startervalve on the old manifold?

If necessary you can take some measurements.
If it wil fit... I don't know
