    '86 e30 motor swap

    why has your 325 got a b20 in it. Would you not be wanting to put a b25 back in? or are you racing in the 2.0l BMW class ??

    Local parts Pricing & Availability

    https://store.vacmotorsports.com/mobile/cp-carrillo-forged-piston-set-bmw-m52-p1067.aspx Just a link I had in my phone. What are the factory mahle pistons made out of? Do you have the piston/pin weight to compare. I would think that the mahle pistons are a hyperutectic with high silicone content.? Depends on what you want to do.

    Looking to buy a welder

    I have a multi-function machine from boc. IT has a mig torch, tig torch and a arc torch. I have only used it on mig so far and it works well. Cost me a grand. it will not tig alloy. this unit will not allow adjustment of the wire speed, just the volts. some find this hard to use, but i dont know any better so its not an issue for me. Paid a grand for it directly from BOC. You will also need a helmet, gloves, clamps and magnets flap wheels and stuff. Leave about 3-350 to get started with this, and a 15a plug in teh wall. Check what the shed is wired with. IF you have 2.5tps tile it should then just buy a plug from bunnings and swap it over. i have made gates and modded my sub frame. When i start my body repairs i will put out the tig and learn how to use that also. there are other machines out there but i chose teh BOC unit as boc will keep spares for many years. Most of the units in the price bracket are made in china and i had concerns regarding parts long term. Also look at bunnings for the coregas swap a bottle scheme. Cheaper than BOC. 190 deposit(refundable if you take it back) on the bottle and about 120 per bottle on a swap basis after that.

    Doing a m5x swap is not a massive amount of work. Basically Google will be your friend. They are basically the same as swapping in a motor in a e30. So search e30 swaps. It has has had some playing with in the past. It should have mechanical injection. It may have a m20 out of a later car with motech or it could have been retro fitted to the original 323 motor. Impossible to tell with out a lot of looking and numbers.
