+1
Some people say the stock obd2 downpipe work, some say the front header flange has to be cut and rewelded at a different angle.

From the looks of mine it looks very difficult to fit a flange and tube without hitting the subframe even with the engine spaced up 1/2"

Hey guys, since i got my car running i thought i would share my build. Since im from Bavaria Germany parts are plenty. I just have to drive to a wrecker to get everything i need. Everything else can be bought from dealer or ebay.



1. Engine
M52T28B from E46 328ci which broke in half due to rust. got the whole thing for 1.3k, sold unnecessary parts for 800... Engine got a M54B30 intake and a tuned ECU to make it run at 239BHP. Oilpan is a E34 525 one i believe, got this second hand from a Rallye cross car. had several ground contact before so had to fix it with JB Weld. Oilpump schnorchel got re-welded to fit the new sump.



2. Engine Wiring
Bought a Adapter from Bruno Antunes on ebay, helped him do the translation of the instructions. This was a 300 part. No customization needed tho. Plug and play, runs on every E30.


3. Drivetrain
ZF 5 Speed Gearbox, E36 328i driveshaft combined with E30 automatic center support bearing. Driveshaft needed some cutting (4,7cm shorter). Differential is a E36 compact (No idea about gearing) aswell as the whole rear axle. Wheels are 17" E36 M-Spec.



4. Shift Lever and Linkage
Lever is a shortshifter from ebay, Linkage is completly OEM


5. Motor Mounts
E28 5-series Motor bearings (70mm)

right side is E36 6 Zylinder engine mount, intake side is a special part from 300mm.de called 24V Adapter. Makes the engine sit perfectly with plenty space in the bay.


6. Brake Booster, Master Cylinder, and External Reservoir
E34 525 Tandem Brakebooster and Master cylinder, same goes for the Reservour


7. Steering System
E30 OEM, no Powersteering (just because)



8. Cooling System
E46 328i Cooler, 2.5l Alloy Reservoir from China, Pusher fan from a wrecker Ford Focus or something (don't remember, just ripped it out of a shell)


9. Exhaust System
E36 320i headers, Stainless Steel exhaust system for Motorsport applications ofc flow optimized - has yet to be installed


10. Brake system

Front has 292mm Brembo special brake discs (Special cause they had to fit exactly for this project) aswell as E36 328i Brake Calipers. Got the adapters and discs from Tino's 300mm.de site, he sells whole 5 Stud conversion kits with all parts needed. In the rear i took everything from the E36 compact rear axle and replaced it with new parts.


So in total i spent over 7k in the last 9 Months. Bought the E30 as a automatic for the same i got the Coup for, swapped everything, had to wait for space and parts or tools. Did everything on my own (except for engine extraction and insertion, so in total i had help twice) No Carlift, just jackstands and alot of me beeing on the ground under the car.

Would i do this again? - No.
Do i recommend this to Novice car guysor hobby mechanics like me? - No.

Did i buy alot unnecessary parts that didn't fit? - Too many...

Is it worth it? -Hell yes.



Maybe i do a follow up story of my build.

Big headers, 3.5 inch exhaust and its doable.

Curious how my HP the Throttles are worth.
