Question about 1996 BMW 318
Swapped out the motor in my 1996 BMW 318i with a 1997 318ti engine. after connecting everything I have spark, I have fuel to the fuel rail, but not building any fuel pressure enough to activate the injectors. The new motor does not have a fuel pressure regulator, would this cause it to not build any pressure at all? If not, why do I not have any fuel pressure?
Must have a fuel pressure reg to hold line pressure in the fuel line could the 97 vehicle have a fuel pressure reg in the tank as part of the fuel pump assembly

Make sure the ECM (computer),it's compatible between the motors also automatic ecm and smanual are not compatible, try starting fluid to see if you got spark at the coils.,
