didn't read through everything, but you didn't mention engine mounts.....

are you sure the engine will fit with the stck engine mounts?

d.maczko 06-24-2006 12:37 PM

i need the e36 5 series oil pan
motor mounts
and one other thing

Red_Rocket 06-24-2006 02:00 PM

ask over on e30tech, im sure they will know whats up, as many have done the same swap as you


d.maczko 06-24-2006 06:43 PM

e30 tech seems more geared towards turbo m20s and r3v doesnt give enough reaction
