Running a M103 out of the car....

I am building the complete drivetrain of a 2001 300e into a streetrod. :surrender: Don't shoot
To start off, I bought a rusted but running car, so have all the relevant bits to make it run.

Then we built it into the body, but from the start knew that the injection would not fit in the engine bay, so we will have to make an intake manifold and run it off Weber sidies. That is not the problem......yet.;)

What I do need help with is figuring out what is the minimum bits required to make the old girl fire.........i.e the least amount of electronics to be bolted back on / connected to get spark....nothing on the injection side needs to work.. and using as much of what I have???

I can't figure out why the fuel injection won't fit in the engine bay, but Weber sidedrafts would. Sounds like an interesting project, nonetheless.
He's only interested in the section of the wiring associated with the spark side of the equation, since he's using carbs for the fueling.
I like the project! Too bad you couldn't replace that little Perkins diesel with a hotrodded Mercedes turbodiesel. One of these days I want to retrofit a hopped up 124 diesel drive train and suspension into an old Mercedes Ponton.
