M54B30 into E30 320i 1991

Recommended Posts

I am pursuing this engine swap and looking for wisdom and advice as to how to go about it and tips in general. Anything helps as this will be my first engine swap.

I'm putting one into an e28!

Yo make it easier I'm getting premade engine mounts for any m5X in the e28 (from e28goodies, e30 versions exist) and also a plug and play ECU plus custom harness to allow easy install:

You will also need m52 exhaust manifolds.

Have you read: https://www.r3vlimited.com/board/forum/e30-technical-forums/24v-engine-swaps/m54-s54/351110-e30-m54-swap-guide ?

Plenty of info online about these swaps,

E30 wiki

r3vlimited 

Google in general

Theres also a project swap on here that Modz is doing under the project area with the same motor

One thing to be wary is if this is your first project swap, that it might look cheap on the surface but it often snowballs, so you have to be prepared for that. Youll also probably want to sort suspension, wheels, brakes, diff out at the same time. The motor is the cheap part,
