I HAVE A E30 M10 ENGINE MY QUESTION IS HOW DO I RESET THE FIRING ORDER? ITS 1-3-4-2 BUT HOW COULD I GET THE CAR TO READ THE SAME.

1985 BMW 318i • 30,000 miles

Im swapping out cylinder heads and I know the firing order is going to be off so how could I reset the order to get the car operable

-You need to correctly set the valve timing and then set the firing order-

I understand, how do I set the valve straight I know it will have a different order because it was pulled off another bmw. How should I do both?

Get a repair manual -start by putting the engine no.1 piston on its compression stroke/TDC and align camshaft and crankshaft markings as indicated in the book-
