Korman street use engines come with a 2 year/24,000 mile limited warranty

Korman Stock Rebuild

Our stock rebuilds are assembled to BMW specifications by our experienced and dedicated technicians rather than off a mass production assembly line. Korman engines are assembled with meticulous craftsmanship, precise machining, and detailed blueprinting. All of our boring an honing is done with a torque plate for exceptional bore roundness and long engine life. These hand built engines are available at prices comparable to a factory remanufactured units which offer only 12 month/12,000 mile warranties instead of our 2 year/24,000 mile limited warranty.

Korman High Performance Clean Air Engines 

Emissions standards today may lead you to believe that traditional high performance BMW engines have been legislated away. Not so at Korman Autoworks! Excellent power and acceleration gains can be realized within these legal constraints by improving flow and reducing the rotating and reciprocating mass of engine components. Our Clean Air Engines are fast, reliable, and clean to help you get the most out of your BMW.

Stage 1 Clean Air Engine

In our Stage 1 Clean Air engines we apply our high performance techniques to extract maximum power from stock parts while making no changes that affect Federal or State emissions laws. Our flow tested porting; polishing, valve and valve seat work promote smoother, more efficient air/fuel flow keeping the mixture much better suspended for cleaner burning and higher performance. Valve spring pressure is increased for a higher maximum rev limit of 7000 rpm. To reduce reciprocating weight and improve acceleration we lighten and balance the connecting rods, fit stronger light weight piston pins, and lighten the flywheel. Carbureted models include a Bosch Sport Coil, High Performance Ignition Wires, and Mechanical Advance Distributor. Expect a 10% to 15% horsepower increase according to model. On carbureted engines, we recommend our Weber Downdraft Carburetor Conversion.

 Stage 2 High Performance Clean Air Engines

These engines receive our Stage 2 competition-type engine treatment for maximum performance while still meeting emissions standards. Porting and polishing are more extensive than our Stage 1 clean air engines. The valves and valve seats are re-cut for improved flow, and all valves are swirl polished. For increased high RPM strength we add dual valve springs, titanium valve spring retainers, and our Korman Rocker Arms. Instead of reworked stock rods, we install our light weight chrome steel alloy connecting rods for a very substantial reduction in reciprocating weight. Lightweight piston pins are included, and the stock steel flywheel is lightened. We also include our competition type oil system modifications for improved engine lubrication along with a Bosch High Performance Coil and Mechanical Advance Distributor. Korman-Stahl headers with our thermal barrier exhaust coating are also included.

Stage 2 Competition Engines

This is our most popular M10 performance engine. This engine has lots of torque, a smooth idle and rapid acceleration to 7000 RPM. This is a solid 150HP (with our standard Korman K300 camshaft, the optional Schrick 292 camshaft yields 160HP), when used with the Weber dual 40mm DCOE’s, yet when driven with a light foot can get up to 30 mpg. With the Weber 32/36 carb conversion, this engine puts out 140 HP, yet offers the economy of the single two barrel downdraft carb. This engine utilizes the Korman K-300 Camshaft, Bosch Mechanical Advance Distributor, Korman-Stahl Header, Dual Valve Springs, Chrome Alloy valve spring retainers, swirl polished valves and Korman Rocker Arms. The connecting rods are lightened and balanced and the cylinder heads are fully ported and polished. The engine is completely balanced and blueprinted. All boring and honing is done with a torque plate for best cylinder roundness for maximum ring seal. Please see the carburetor kits below to complete your engine.

Stage 3 2.0L Competition Engine

Our hot autocross/rally engine. This is a light competition engine built for power. Don't expect 150,000 miles at 7500RPM, but it is designed to operate at that engine speed. This 170 HP engine includes the Schrick 316 camshaft, two 45 DCOE Weber carburetors, lightweight connecting rods, high compression pistons, titanium valve spring retainers, racing headers, etc. Blueprinted and balanced to competition specifications.   

Stage 3 Competition Engine- A/P# 1100 2 300

Estimated labor for removal, installation and tuning above engine-LAB 11 002 303          

Stage 4  2.2 Liter Competition Engine

This capacity is available in our otherwise stock spec motor, Stage 1, 2, 3, or Full Race Spec Motor.

The special crankshaft requires a different timing chain/oil pump/crank sprocket, a different front vibration damper/pulley, upgraded front hub assembly, custom light weight forged pistons with light weight pins, custom length competition connecting rods, special machining to the front timing cover, and machining of the block for clearance of the longer stroke assembly. It is characteristic of the dynamics of increasing stroke that there will be frictional and inertia losses at high rpm resulting in a top end increase of only 5-7%, but producing and impressive 20% or more increase in bottom end torque.  The great advantage here is a very substantial increase in acceleration without having to work the engine hard with high revs.  Smooth, strong response is coupled with increased durability.

 All Korman engines are priced using your good re-buildable core. Rebuilding it yourself?

Korman stocks a wide range of OEM replacement parts, and we can also do machine work on an as-needed basis. Call us with your needs!



Our engines are based on designs tested and proven on our in-house engine dynometer. It is not necessary to Dyno subsequent engines of the same design. However, there are advantages to having your own engine Dyno tuned.

A Dyno tuned engine is fully run in before testing under load. You are not only assures of precise tuning for maximum performance, but your engine is delivered ready for immediate high performance use. You have no further break-in period.

 Korman Autoworks Dyno tuning procedures include a lengthy run-in time. During this break-in period the cylinder head is retrorqued, valves adjusted, compression tested, oil pressure monitored, and temperatures closely controlled. Then under close observation, engine speed and load are gradually increased until the engine is ready for full load testing. One more cycle of adjustment and compression checks and we begin power runs. After satisfactorily completing all power runs, valve adjustments and compression are again checked and recorded. Customers are provided a detailed Dyno chart showing engine specifications, tuning specifications, and full horsepower and torque curves. Each Dyno sheet is certified by Ray Korman.

As with Dyno testing, once the procedures are standardized, we do not flow test ever cylinder head job. For those customers desiring verification of cylinder head flow rates and precise balancing of ports, we offer complete flow testing of your cylinder head with charts of the results.

BMW Four Cylinder heads: Two valves per cylinder-LAB 11 400 400

Schrick Camshafts

Schrick cams represent the newest and most advanced designs for BMW engines. Sophisticated changes in lobe center angles and larger base circles enable reliable utilization of high lift. Their chief quality is their ability to produce a great increase in power across a wide rpm range. Clean idling and strong bottom end torque are combined with superior top end power.

Schrick 284 Cam For 4 Cylinder Engines

This is Schrick’s high torque street performance cam. It gives a strong bottom end response and continues making steady power through the full rev range. It does not require cutting for piston-valve clearance. Ideal for use as a mild upgrade camshaft for A/C equipped 2002’s. 284 degrees of duration with 9.5mm of lift. M10 >9/80. P/N 1131 4 284

Schrick 292 Cam for 4 Cylinder Engines

This is our favorite all around street performance Schrick camshaft. It is a strong step up from the Schrick 284 camshaft. With our competition Stage 2 modifications, it will produce about 160 H.P. with the dual Weber DCOE’s. It does not require cutting for piston to valve clearance and works with side draft or downdraft carburetion. It also works well with A/C equipped 2002’s. 292 degrees of duration with 10.0mm of lift. M10 >9/80. P/N 1131 4 292

Schrick 304 Cam for 4 Cylinder Engines

Considerably more power at top end than the 292 cam, these are the strongest practical autocross, rally and driving school camshafts. These are more sophisticated cams and obtain some of their extra power from more aggressive angles between the lobes and the ramp profiles. Additional piston/valve clearance must be cut. These camshafts are for use only with the Weber 40mm or 45mm DCOE side draft carbs. The use of our offset cam gear listed below is highly recommended for best tuning results. This cam uses a standard journal diameter; however a small groove must be milled by hand into the center bore to provide additional oiling. 304 degrees of duration with 10.7mm of lift. M10 >9/80. P/N 1131 4 304

Schrick 316 Cam for 4 Cylinder Engines

A semi-race camshaft suitable for both club competition and other on-track events. Nearly full racing performance but without sacrificing valve train reliability and life. Use with 45mm Weber DCOE’s and large diameter headers. The big lobes require boring the cam journals in the cylinder head. (Korman can provide this service for you if needed) This cam provides oil directly to the rocker arms, the cam oiling tube is not needed.  Additional piston/valve clearance must be cut. 316 degrees of duration with 11.9mm of valve lift. M10 >9/80 P/N 1131 4 316

Schrick 336 Cam for 4 Cylinder Engines

This camshaft is for fully prepared race motors only. Many engine modifications along with a higher compression ratio is required. The big lobes require boring the cam journals in the cylinder head. (Korman can provide this service for you if needed) This cam provides oil directly to the rocker arms, the cam oiling tube is not needed.  Additional piston/valve clearance must be cut. The Schrick 336 camshaft is used for road racing and is asymmetrical, i.e. the intake lobes have more duration and lift than the exhaust lobes. You will need our offset adjustable cam gear to set the cam timing. We won an SCCA GT2 Championship with the 336 cam and 50 DCOE Webers making 230HP. There is no stronger cam made anywhere for the M10 motor. 336 degrees of duration with 12.45mm of valve lift (intake) and 12.0mm of valve lift (exhaust).M10 >9/80.  P/N 1131 4 336

Cylinder head line boring for Schrick Race Cams

The big lobes of the Schrick 316 and 336 racing cams require boring the cam journals in the cylinder head for fitment. Korman can provide this service for you if needed. This requires shipping your cylinder head and Schrick camshaft to us for modification. P/N 11044


Korman Reground Camshafts

Our reground cams have proven to be quick and reliable for over 150,000 miles. We use only moderate profiles to avoid the steep ramp angles and greater wear associated with more radical designs. They are machined on precision computer driven cam lathes, then hardened, heat treated, and coated. Reasonably priced, sold on an exchange basis with your old usable camshaft in exchange.

Aerospace Quality Hardware

BMW uses stretch bolts for clamping the cylinder head to the block.  But for modified high performance engines, stronger fasteners may be needed. We recommend these aerospace quality head studs instead of stretch bolts. They have a guaranteed tensile strength of 190,000 PSI and can be used over and over. Stretch bolts must be replaced, they cannot be re-used. Our kits include precision ground hardened washers and 12 point aircraft nuts to distribute the load evenly. This helps to keep the cylinders more round, improving piston ring seal, compression, and power. We also have replacement stud kits for the s-t-r-e-t-c-h bolts used for the main bearing caps.

2002 Oiling System Improvements

Engine Oiling System Modifications

Strongly recommended for frequent high RPM operation. Essential in BMW engines for racing. Modifications increase oil pressure to the bottom end and provide a more even flow and more precise oil pressure through the main and rod bearings, controls oil flow to cylinder head, reducing excess pooling of oil in the cylinder head under high RPM operation. Kit includes special main bearings, new oil pump with hardware. You must ship your crankshaft to us for modification special machining.

 2002 M10 4 Cyl. A/P# 1141 1 002

Korman Competition Oil Pan

Designed for racing, we have also used many of these pans on hot street/autocross cars. Enlarged sump increases oil capacity by 2 liters. Extensively baffled, three one way flapper valves provide unmatched oil control. Can be used alone, with our Formula 2 style windage tray or our budget windage tray (both listed below). An excellent oil pan choice for 2002’s with the S14 M3 engine swap. This oil pan provides the oil capicity the S14 M3 engine needs. For M10 and S14  4 Cylinder engines installed into a 2002. Sold on an exchange basis, send you oil pan in for modification or purchase an oil pan core from us. P/N 1113 2 002

Korman Special Oil Pan 

One way flapper valves controls surging in the sump, maintains deeper oil level around pick up to preclude sucking air in hard turns, hard braking and hard acceleration. This proven design saves rod bearings. Can be used alone, or with our Formula 2 style windage tray or our budget windage tray (both listed below). A great oil pan for street, autocross and track days, especially when combined with our budget windage tray. This is a very cost effective package. P/N 1113 0002 EXC

F2 Style Windage Tray/Scraper Assembly-M10 4 Cyl.

Heidegger AG F2 style windage trays with three stainless steel scraper blades. The blades strip oil from the crank and rods and direct turbulence and splashing oil away from moving parts reducing drag and foaming. NOTE: Stock connecting rods will not clear the F2 Windage Scrapper Blade Assembly. You must use our Korman Modified, Competition, or Special Alloy Connecting Rods. Alternately, you can cut the cast balancing mass from the bottom of your rods and have them re-balanced. Oil dipstick hole must be added. P/N 1113 0 000

Korman Windage Tray/Scraper Assembly-M10 4 Cyl.

M10 w/o Teflon    M10 w/Teflon

This is our budget windage tray/scrapper assembly. It has almost all of the futures of the F2 version above at a much more attractive price. This crank scraper comes with dual independent trap doors and a second scraper.  The second scraper operates on the down stroke of the crank shaft and shunts the oil to the side of the pan. The dual trap doors allow oil to freely drain from the side of the block without becoming trapped on top of the scraper, but during high speed sweeper turns the doors swing shut to keep oil at the oil pump pick-up area. This helps prevent a well-known problem with the tilted engine design of oil traveling up the side of the block.  At the rear of the scraper a ledge has been added to help prevent oil from climbing the rear of the sump during heavy acceleration. These are for wet sump street and race engines; we also have versions for dry sump engines. Call for details. Use 2 of our P/N 1113 0 607 100 oil pan gaskets for installation (sold separately).

Weber Carburetor Conversion Kits

In design, performance, and reliability, Weber Carburetors are world renowned. Korman Autoworks offers a complete line of Weber conversion kits for BMW's. All of our Weber kits have received extensive engine Dyno development and testing by Ray Korman. This is backed up by many miles of street and track testing. Our Weber kits are sold with the correct chokes and jets for your engine and tailored to your driving requirements.

ometimes we hear rumors that Weber carburetors are difficult to tune and maintain. This is a misconception caused by improper installations or bad tuning. Unfortunately many Webers are sold for BMW applications that are not correctly jetted or have the wrong choke sizes, and often are not even the correct model Weber for the engine intended. Poor throttle linkage can cause many problems and in most cases we provide linkage of our own design. A correct Weber installation will provide smooth running at all rpm, will be easy to tune, will not require frequent readjustments, and will get good fuel economy.

Weber 32/36 Downdraft Conversion For 2002

Replaces the troublesome stock Solex two-barrel carburetor and brings a smoothness and crispness of throttle response that your 2002 never had before. This carburetor bolts directly to the stock '73 - '76 manifold and works well with standard or automatic transmissions. The Solex vacuum operated secondary opens slowly. The Weber secondary throttle area is 6% greater and the mechanical linkage opens the secondary throttle immediately on full throttle providing much quicker acceleration. The linkage is progressive so on part throttle cruising only the primary is operating, yielding excellent fuel economy. Includes carburetor, base gasket, air cleaner, and sheathed choke cable. Detailed instructions included.

Weber DCOE Dual Sidedraft Conversion for the 2002

The classic carburetor conversion for improved performance. These Webers can be installed alone with no other modifications to replace your present carburetor or fuel injection and give a marked improvement in acceleration. The Weber DCOE’s s work best when combined with the mechanical advance distributor and Stahl headers. This combination will produce a full 20% H.P. increase, as tested on our engine Dyno. With our Stage 2 modifications the Weber DCOE’s deliver 150 H.P. to 160 H.P., depending on compression ratio and camshaft selection. The Weber DCOE’s are very efficient carburetors and customers report up to 30 mpg on highway driving.



Korman Weber DCOE Kits are the most complete on the market. In addition to the DCOE carburetors, they include:

  • Korman Intake Manifold with balance ports for increased low end and mid-range torque
  • Korman custom linkage assembly
  •  breather hose
  •  intake manifold gaskets
  • all necessary clamps and hardware
  • full instructions

Manual Fuel Pump

The current aftermarket fuel pumps for the 2002 do not fit correctly onto the cylinder head. To fit the aftermarket fuel pump, you must shim the fuel pump outboard for clearance. However, shimming the fuel pump outboard reduces the travel of the fuel pump arm reducing both fuel volume and pressure. We recommend using the original BMW fuel pump. It is more expensive that the aftermarket versions, but much cheaper than burning a hole in your piston from detonation caused by lack of fuel. Not for use with Weber dual DCOE conversions, but can be used with Weber 32/36 conversions.  P/N 1331 1 265 192

Throughout our many years of Dyno testing, STAHL headers have always made the best power gains. These headers will produce a 6 to 10% increase in power on stock engines and much more on high performance engines. On stock engine customers have reported over 5% improvement in gas mileage. All Stahl headers have good sealing connections and will not noticeably increase under hood engine noise. All units will adequately clear air conditioner units except race headers. The size in inches refers to the primary tube diameter. All come with standard diameter collectors with ends or flanges that bolt directly to original or standard aftermarket exhaust systems. Competition headers with larger collectors come with straight pipe ends and no connecting flange. Stahl headers are finished in aluminum color heat resistant paint. For a more permanent finish see High Performance coatings below.

Supersprint Stainless Steel 2002 Headers

Each header incorporates CNC laser cut port matched flanges. Primary tubes are mandrel bent using the latest CNC tube bending equipment. With special tooling Supersprint has been able to keep weld joints to a minimum for added reliability. The fully appointed R&D department uses the latest in proto typing equipment along with the reliability and accuracy of a MAHA "all wheel drive" chassis dyno to verify power gains. With over 50 years in performance exhaust development they have earned the confidence of many of Europe's most respected tuners. Headers are 100% stainless steel. P/N 1883 0 403 01

Stock Exhaust Manifold Porting

A careful porting and polishing of the stock exhaust manifold. We then precisely mate the exhaust manifold gasket to the exhaust manifold for maximum flow. Especially recommended with the Ceramic Thermal Barrier Coating. An excellent alternative where headers are not an option due to emission regulations or race regulations. P/N LAB 1821 3 004

Ceramic Thermal Barrier Coating

From Aerospace technology comes this oven baked metallic/ceramic finish that is far superior to ordinary header paints. In salt spray testing where high temperature paints lasted 40-50 hours, the ceramic coating lasted over 5,000 hours. In addition to coating the outside, the ceramic thermal barrier finish also coats the inside of the pipe. The thermal barrier will reduce under hood temperatures and testing has shown horsepower gains due to combustion chamber stabilization and increased gas velocity. A great option for show room stock racers who are not allowed headers. Available in silver or black, please specify your color choice. For all M10 4 cylinder exhaust manifolds and headers.

 Transmission Rebuilds

Our standard gearbox rebuilding includes complete disassembly, thorough cleaning, and close inspection of all parts. We replace the synchro rings, bearings, seals and gaskets with original BMW parts. Other worn parts are replaced as needed at additional cost. The transmission is blueprinted, shimmed, torqued and pre-loaded precisely to BMW specifications using the correct BMW special tools for each task.

We have read that BMW gearboxes have inherent weaknesses in bearings and synchros. In over 39 years of experience with BMW gearboxes, we cannot agree with that opinion. We typically race all season with the same stock BMW gearbox and usually only change the synchros during between season winter rebuilds. We race several seasons on the bearings some claim are weak, and with engines double the original horsepower!Korman offers transmission rebuilds warranted for 2 years/24,000 miles for all the BMW transmissions we rebuild, even the old BMW Porsche-type synchronizer gearboxes. And, you'll be surprised how much you can save over a factory reman unit!

Five Speed Close Ratio Transmission Rebuild

Close ratio gearboxes are designed primarily for competition usage. First gear is geared higher than in a standard four speed or overdrive five speed transmission. Fifth gear in a close-ratio box is the same (1:1) as fourth in a four speed or overdrive five speed. The closeness of the ratios requires much more shifting but keeps the engine rpm up in the peak torque ranges for maximum acceleration. These transmissions are no longer available from BMW. For those of you lucky enough to acquire a used close ratio transmission, we offer a rebuilding service with our 2 year/24,000 mile warranty. A/P# 2323 1 550

Differentials with normal wear do not usually require replacement of the ring and pinion gears. Our standard rebuilding includes complete disassembly, thorough cleaning, a close inspection of all parts, replacement of all bearings, seals, and gaskets, crush sleeve, and lock ring. Our rebuilding includes meticulous attention to correct gear lash, gear contact patterns, precise pre-load of bearings and exact torque specifications. We provide a 2 year/24,000 mile warranty with our rebuilds, but expect them to last well over 100,000 miles.

If you have a limited slip differential, we can also refurbish the limited slip carrier while rebuilding your differential (additional charges apply). As BMW limited slip units wear, the percentage of lock (25%, 40%, etc.) gradually drops off. We can restore your limited slip assembly to original lock.

If you want to change your differential gearing, combining this operation with a rebuild saves you both time and money.

Differential Components

Optional Ratio Differential Gear Sets

"My first BMW, a 1964 1800 TISA four door sedan regularly beat the performance sport cars of its day in autocrosses: E-Jaguars, Lotus Élans, Corvettes, MG Twin Cams, Porsche Super 90's, and more than a few 911's! Along with very minor engine changes, a good suspension package, wider wheels and tires, and a close ratio gearbox, my most effective "speed secret" was the change to a 4.75 gear set!"

Ray Korman

 Racing Teams use different gear ratios to suit the characteristics of each track and obtain maximum acceleration. Successful autocrossers know the advantages of a quicker ratio, but as a street/highway performance option it is often overlooked. This may be because it seems more difficult than

changing computer chips or adding a suspension package. Also, many local shops and even dealers lack the special tools and expertise to rebuild and change gear sets in BMW differentials. With our racing experience we are very proficient with BMW differentials and we have the special tools needed to make modifications correctly. UPS and other carriers have increased their weight limits and can now pickup and deliver your differential at your front door. The usual diff removal or installation time for most BMW's is 1.5 hours.

Changing to a quicker ratio provides faster acceleration in all gears at all rpm's. It does not affect engine emissions or idle speed and can make up for changes in tire diameter. Some BMW models were originally geared very long for increased fuel mileage. These cars benefit the most from quicker ratios. Generally, longer ratios yield better fuel mileage and shorter ratios offer more acceleration and higher fuel consumption. In practice, the fuel difference is often slight. If you have such a long ratio you must frequently downshift to pass or accelerate quickly, then in reality you do not get the theoretically higher fuel mileage that the longer ratio would have you expect. And, if you switch to a shorter ratio for more acceleration, you may not burn much more gas than before, as you are now able to upshift more quickly into the higher gears.

In a similar way, you would expect that changing to a shorter ratio for more acceleration will reduce your top end speed and you would run out of revs in high gear. However, few cars have enough top end torque to pull full revs in high gear. Changing to a shorter ratio will usually enable the engine to pull more revs against the high speed drag resistance. Though you will turn more revs per mile, your actual top end speed may be as good as or better than before, especially if you have added some additional performance improvements.

The following formula will enable you to calculate your possibilities, but keep in mind actual results will vary. Drag, rolling resistance, tire characteristics, spoiler packages and engine modifications all affect acceleration and achievable top end speed. And don't forget road conditions, speed limits, and radar! It is usually more practical to gear for greater acceleration than higher top end speed. You can enjoy it more often with fewer penalties.

MPH= (RPM) (TIRE DIAMETER) in inches

                (GEAR RATIO)(336)

  Korman recommends a +/- 9% gear ratio change for most street driven cars. To obtain a percentage change, divide your original gear set ratio by your proposed new gear set. The resulting percentage also equals your RPM change at a given speed.

Korman Suspension Systems

Korman suspension systems have been developed with one primary objective: SUPERIOR HANDLING. A secondary and important consideration was to keep prices as reasonable as possible without sacrificing performance and quality.

e have combined years of BMW race, rally, autocross, and highway experience with the latest technological advances available today from manufacturers of suspension components. We have focused on suspensions as a complete system. Some parts of the system, the basic geometry, mounting points, weight distribution, and the like, cannot be modified in any practical way on most street cars. The components we can readily change are the shock absorbers, anti-sway bars, and springs and some bushings. Improving any one of these can definitely enhance handling but truly superior performance can only be achieved by the installation of a complete suspension package.

At Korman Autoworks each component has been selected, developed, and tested for its capability to perform its own function, and also for its capability to work with the other components. The selection of these technically advanced components combined with the road and track testing of the complete systems is what makes Korman suspension systems unbeatable.or maximum versatility and to fit your driving needs, we have developed four types of suspension systems for the 2002: ROADSPORT, CLUBSPORT, and TRACKSPORT, and full RACE systems. Each is described in detail below.

Korman Roadsport Suspension

For all around street/highway use. Designed to be comfortable yet firmly controlled for everyday commuting and provide very substantially improved handling for winding roads and weekend club events. The Roadsport suspension is our biggest selling kit. It includes: 4 stronger 1/2" lower springs, 4 Bilstein HD Shock Absorbers, 1 set 22 front and 19 adjustable rear sway bars, with mounting hardware, polyurethane bushings and the special polyurethane bushing lube. A/P# 3110 2002 H1

Korman Clubsport Suspension

Still acceptable for street/highway use, this package focuses more strongly on “club” event handling.  Bilstein Sport shocks are matched with stronger springs that lower the car 1.5 inches, 1 set 22 front and 19 adjustable rear sway bars, with mounting hardware, polyurethane bushings and the special polyurethane bushing lube. Best performance will require rear Camber & Toe adjustment (See P/N. 33203567 for details)  A/P#  3110 2002 H2

Korman Tracksport Suspension

Includes considerably stronger springs and shocks (Bilstein Sports) than our Roadsport suspension. For the more competitive enthusiast who is willing to accept a much stiffer ride on the street to obtain a winning edge at club events. We include our front upper and lower decamber plates to modify the front suspension geometry. We modify your rear subframe (must be shipped to us) for camber & toe adjustment. Suspension Package Includes: 4 stronger 1.5" lower springs, 4 Bilstein Sport Shocks, 1 set 22 front and 19 adjustable rears sway bars, 1 pair lower camber correction plates, 1 pair upper decamber plates, and your rear sub frame modified for adjustable Camber & Toe. A/P#    3110 2002 H1S

Korman Race Suspension

Our customers have broken lap records in SCCA ITB with this package. Designed for the driver who is determined to win at club events. Superb handling, neutral controlled drifts under hard throttle, faultless tracking through chicanes and slaloms, forgiving and quick to recover from excesses. Brings out the best in you and your 2002. This is an advanced, adjustable racing system with custom valved front shocks, threaded adjustable front struts, adjustable front camber assembly with solid spherical bearings, lower decamber plates, rear custom valved shocks, and rear race springs.

The basic race suspension problem for the 2002 is that when lowered to minimum legal ride height there is insufficient stroke length and all standard aftermarket shocks will bottom out. In addition to damaging shocks and other parts, the bottoming out causes the car to break traction. Our front strut units and rear shocks are both about 1 1/4" shorter to eliminate this problem. Front springs are lightweight 2 1/4" precision wound racing springs. Rears mount in the stock location and are high tech progressive rate springs from Germany, designed to eliminate the typical rear end squat under acceleration.

Suspension Components

Replacement Steering Box

The quick ratio 12.8:1 steering boxes are no longer available. However, the 15.5:1 standard steering boxes are still available (as long as supply lasts). If you steering box is loose and you can no longer adjust it, it is time to replace it! P/N 3211 2 002

Adjustable Camber Plate Assembly

For competition use only, not recommended for normal street use. A spherical bearing mounted in a sliding housing on a slotted T6 aluminum base plate provides full camber adjustability and can be pivoted in mounting to strut tower to improve caster angle. Some strut tower cross braces may restrict full adjustment. Simply the best set-up for very serious auto crossing and racing.   A/P# 3100 1 875

Upper Decamber Plates for BMW 1600/2002

A pair of steel plates complete with studs and bolts for easy installation. Improves front negative camber by about one degree. Works well for aggressive street use/autocross, track day use. P/N 3106 2 054

Rear Trailing Arm Camber/Toe Assembly

Our eccentrics allow adjustment of rear wheel camber and toe in just a matter of minutes. This enables the restoration of factory alignment specifications and corrects rear suspension geometry on lowered cars.  These kits are weld-in only; you must send us your sub frame for modification. Allows for  adjustment of BOTH camber and toe.  A/P 3320 3 567

Solid Subframe Mounts

These mounts are constructed of steel, not rubber. For racing use only as these mounts are too loud and harsh for street use. Allows for the rear subframe to be moved closer to the body for additional lowering and better trailing arm angles on lowered race cars. Sold by the pair. P/N 3300 K 2002

Strut Braces

Compensate for the additional chassis loading of bigger wheels and tires, stronger suspension components, and added horsepower. Our upper stress bars bolt across the upper shock mounts. 2002's are prone to breaking welds at the radiator bulkhead, making a front strut brace mandatory for enthusiastic driving or modified cars.  We supply two different versions: the 312002T has a single square tube and it fits all 2002’s except for carbureted 2002’s using the factory air cleaner. The 3142002C fits all 2002’s except for carbureted 2002’s using the factory air cleaner. It has dual round tubes with a brace that can be bolted to the firewall for added rigidity. It also comes with a torque tube that can be bolted to the valve cover to limit engine movement. The torque tube does NOT have to be installed to use the Strut Brace; the Strut Brace can be installed alone without the torque tube.

Delrin solid bushings are designed for hardcore autocross and road racing cars. This bushing material will not deflect during hard cornering. This produces a very much more precise steering, turn in and quicker cornering. Being solid, they transmit road noise and vibration directly. Due to their harshness, we do not recommend them for normal street use.

Korman High Performance Brake Pads

These brake pads are able to maintain an average of a .50 friction level within a very wide temperature range. This gives the Korman High Performance Brake Pad astounding versatility and makes it very suitable for a wide array of various track conditions. With use of the latest ceramic technology, the Carbon based semi-metallic materials allow the pads to absorb tremendous amounts of heat and dissipate it at a very even rate, while at the same time insulating excessive heat from calipers. Another inherent characteristic of our carbon Kevlar material is how quickly the pads warm up to race temperature which

is quite helpful during restarts, and when track time is limited. Optimum operating temperatures are 450ºF and above. When used with cast iron and steel alloy rotors, this compound requires a minimal bed-in period. Throughout the entire heat range, the Carbon Kevlar material will give extremely consistent modulation and predictability smooth release characteristics up to the threshold.

Lightweight Fiberglass Parts

Fiberglass provides several advantages: light weight for quicker acceleration and cornering, special shapes for customized appearance, and no rust. Our fiberglass is hand laid and carefully reinforced for stiffness. It is finished in a smooth gel coat and ready to wet sand and paint.

The Alpina Style Flares present a smooth rounded appearance. The Schnitzer Style is more angular and similar in appearance to the E30 M3 factory fender flares. Both types are wider, allowing the installation of larger tires and wheels. Depending on offset, a rim width of 7.5" to 8.0" is possible with the Alpina Style Flares, and an 8.5"-9.0" rim width is possible with the Schnitzer Style Flares. Our fiberglass hoods, trunk lids and doors are lightweight "skins" which must be pinned in place (no provision for hinges/latches). Depressions for BMW emblems molded in. All components are available in high strength Kevlar at additional cost.

  2002 Carpet Kits-Korman Autoworks  offers interior carpet sets for most models of 02 Series sedans. The carpet did not change much except that BMW changed from a cut and bound carpet to a molded in the later years of the 2002. The floor pan did not change significantly so the same cut and bound carpet pieces can replace the molded carpet. We offer both the "cut and bound" and molded version of the 02 Series carpet.  There are certain factors that affect the carpet set. Automatic transmission cars are slightly different from manual versions because of the pedals. Baur conversions will have slight changes in the side areas because the conversion added body reinforcements that affect the carpet. Touring cars had carpet in the storage area behind the rear seats and can be bought as a separate set from the interior set.

Synthetic transmission lube MTL (Manual Transmission Lube)

Safe for brass synchros, as it lacks the reactive sulfurs found in most GL-5 oils that cause damage to the early factory brass synchros. Eliminates notchy shifting, even when cold, High performance gear protection and longer synchro life. Recommended for most BMW transmissions except the late models that require an ATF style fluid. Per quart P/N 110023MTL

MT90 (transmission lube) 75W90. A GL-4 gear oil (similar to SAE 5W40/10W40 engine oil viscosity) that is safe for brass synchros, as it lacks the reactive sulfurs found in most GL-5 oils that cause damage. Recommended for GL-1, GL-3, and GL-4 applications, as well as where most special synchromesh fluids are specified. Per quart P/N 1100MT90

D4ATF Our most versatile ATF, use where Dexron III®, Dexron II®, Mercon® and Mercon V® fluids are recommended, provides a GL-4 level of gear protection. Also used with manual transmissions and transaxles like the T-5, T-45, T-56 and late-model BMW which specify an ATF fluid. This ATF has excellent cold weather operation. Per quart P/N 1100D4ATF

Synthetic Differential Lube

Redline Synthetic Differential lubes are fully-synthetic formulas created from polyol ester base stocks and offer excellent lubrication under extreme conditions. They have a high viscosity-index (VI) to provide relatively constant viscosity and film thickness with varying temperature changes along with superior shear stability and reduced oxidation compared to other synthetics and conventional gear oils. Redline exceeds API GL-5 specifications and is engineered to provide the highest degree of protection and improvement of differential efficiency for better mileage, longer drain intervals, and less wear.

75W90 our most popular Red Line gear oil. Contains additional friction modifiers for suitability with clutch-type limited slip differentials - for most BMW LSDs, no additional friction modifiers are required. Per quart P/N 11007590

75W90NS For BMW owners who want the benefits of using Redline 75W90, but who do not have a limited slip differential, we offer the 75W90 without the limited slip additive for use in open differentials.                                   Per quart P/N 11007590NS

75/140 Contains additional friction modifiers for suitability with clutch-type limited slip differentials - for most LSDs, no additional friction modifiers are required. Per quart P/N 110075140

Gasoline additives & cleaners

Redline gasoline additives cleans injectors, carburetors, valve and combustion chamber deposits, along with pollution control valves with a concentrated blend of the most powerful high-temp and low-temp detergents available. They clean to nearly 100% efficiency in one treatment and reduces the need for octane by up to two points. Redline also contains a synthetic upper cylinder lubricant for exotic fuels. Use one 15oz.bottle per tank for most effective treatment of a neglected vehicle (one bottle treats up to 100 gallons) and use the 4oz bottle for continued use (one bottle treats up to 20 gallons.) Redline gasoline additives and cleaners are safe for continual use.

Grease and Engine Assembly Lube

Redline CV2 grease

Outperforms the best conventional or synthetic greases and lubes. It withstands extreme temperature and pressure in wheel bearings, U-joints, and high-angle CV Joints. Redline grease has excellent high-temp stability, extreme-pressure protection, and water resistance and is used in a variety of applications with operating temps from -100°F to 500°F. Along with a strong resistance to oxidation and corrosion, low evaporation and oil separation with a minimum effect on rubber seals, its synthetic fluidity allows increases in bearing life by up to 200%. Redline CV2 grease will darken after high-temp use, this is NOT detrimental to performance. 14oz tube P/N 110056CVMOL

Redline Assembly Lube

Used by Korman Autoworks and many of the best engine builders, engineers, and technicians in Formula 1, GP2, Formula 3, NASCAR, NHRA, and WRC. Redline assembly lube prepares engine wear surfaces and prevents metal to metal contact before adequate lubrication can be supplied by the oiling system. Unlike other assembly lubes, Red Line's will not plug filters after initial engine start-up. Redline assembly lube provides 3x greater film strength than conventional black Molybdenum Disulfide greases and is an excellent rust and corrosion inhibitor, which allows for long-term parts storage. For use on camshafts, lifters, pushrods, piston skirts, main and rod bearings, and bolt threads. Recommended and used by top camshaft and drivetrain manufacturers. 4oz can P/N 1100LUBE

Water Wetter

Reduces or eliminates both the bubbles and the vapor barrier that form on hot metal surfaces to reduce coolant temperatures by up to 20°F. It has superior heat transfer properties as compared to any glycol-based antifreeze alone. Water wetter is compatible with either new or used antifreeze (including DEX-COOL and other long-life versions) and improves the heat transfer of both ethylene and propylene glycol based systems. Use one bottle per cooling system; just add to your existing anti-freeze mix. Racers can use Water Wetter along with plain or distilled H20 to reduce temperatures also and lubricate the water pump.
