Building a 46 ringtool/road car, anyone had any experience with weld in cages, whilst trying to minimise movement of the fuse box and ABS pump, whilst coming out to the strut tops???

I have a full weld in cage and my fuse box is in the original place , I have added extra bars to my cage so split the servo/abs up and fitted one either side but I believe until I fitted the extra bars under the bonnet off the turrets the servo/abs was fine in original position too

Impossible to run the original ABS unit so I had to relocate mine. I relocated the ECU to inside aswell but if I were you I'd just try and move it over a bit it was a pain having to extend all the wires and it's not as neat as BMW intended, if I could change it again I would.

God knows how you've got the ECU box in original location Ray that must be so tight lol.

Its definitely not impossible to run the original abs system as I did till I added extra bars to my cage, the ecu can still be fitted oem too with small mod to box, I've moved mine inside the car without cutting my loom , it just takes some time and thought Graham

Message member LSD.

He'll send you some pics of what he's done.

He's presently prepping for the coming season so it's been blown apart.

Thanks guys, I send him a message, the fuse box is defiantly the main hurdle.

Some of the non M 46s had the abs pump mounted on the ns chassis leg so I get went down my local scrap yard and picked up the mount from one of those. As for the fuse box I just moved it inside behind my dash.

Not that it matters now as Iíve already done it but Iíll be having a good snoop around your car when I see it if you donít mind? Interested to see how it was done, there was physically no way I could run the ABS it runs directly where it was mounted
