Im gonna be going standalone and have most of my parts. The only thing Im asking is where can I find the wheel thats necassary for the VEMS to read the pulses from the crank trigger. I have an e car and can I find this on the i cars or where else can I get it

You would have better luck there as they dont really post in the general forum.
I think there are at least 2 members running VEMS
Good luck hope you find your answers.

You can get the front-mounted 60-2 trigger wheel and the sensor with sensor mount from the later Motronic controlled M20 engine. I'm not really sure about the years, but -85 and on should have it (or was it -87 and on ?).
I guess it's different here in Europe, I haven't come across a Motronic 'i' that hasn't had the front mount trigger wheel.

all the i models i ever worked on had a sensoir that reads off the front crank wheel

yea I have an "e" model and mine is just a wheel with a few markings for the sensor in the front to read

the 85-87 models have motronic 1.0 with 2 sensors mounted on the gearbox reading from the flywheel

My 87 eta had a crank sensor as well just no teeth on the hub.

yea it has the sensor and some markings on the wheel to indicate tdc, but i was wondering if I can use that when going standalone, or will the two sensors on the flywheel do, or will i need to get the 60 2 wheel

that sensor is just for the diagnostic purpose

you need to get the 60-2 wheel because the clutch fly doesnt have a missing tooth and it can't be decoded

The flywheel does have a tooth, except it aint missin, it a actual tooth, so I can find the 60/2 wheel on the "i" cars right

not the american 325i models. all of ours are front mounted and only the eta cars and the turbo diesel use the flywheel sensors.
