Default Anyone into BMWs?

One of the very few cars that's always intrigued me and stopped me in my tracks due to it's drop dead gorgeous looks is the BMW 507. I was very fortunate sit in one and go for a "leisurely" jaunt around the Cologne, Germany area many years ago when I stumbled upon a gathering in front of "The Dom" cathedral by the main train station. I was hooked. But seeing how they are... oh...a tad out of my price range, I always thought I'd make an accurate replica. The body was always the main issue. But, I've got that resolved. Now I'm considering using a BMW V8 but know zero about them. I've owned several BMWs, but they were Z3s, 3-Series E30 and later, and one 528. All 5spds. I'm intrigued to use a BMW V8 if I decideto build one, and know the 4.0 had issues.

Does anyone here know about stand alone EFI (like FAST or the like) systems that can be retroed to earlier V8s? I figured I'd ask here before heading over to Roadfly or the like.

It would be a big project since I'd be fabrication pretty much everything. But how cool would that be?! We'll see. Still in the information gathering process.

Cheers
Dave
