WOW!

John, very very nice. I really like that a lot. I regularly drive my dad's Euro M3 and always wondered what it would be like to drop that powerplant in an e30. What are you asking for it?

Very nice!!!! I think this so much work to take a S50 engine in a E30, but I think this car is running very well.

The Motor was imported from Europe by Will Turner of Turner Motorsport.

The conversion wasn't too bad Raven had already put a Euro 3.2 in Frank Grays E30M3.

The car runs great and works really wheel and is very fast.

The 5 bolt conversion was very easy.
There are 2 options to do the 5 bolt conversion.
1. Use complete E30M3 suspension parts and brakes
2. Front E36 Rear E36ti (Better selection of wheels with this one)

O.K. but for the E36 conversion did you use the complete E36 front suspension? What offset do you have now? Are you using the E36 brakes too?

I am using an E30M3 suspension and brakes with E30M3 wheels and my pffset is 22mm.

If you use E36 Supension and brakes you have a wider selection of wheels to choose and you offset is approx 42mm

I love the clean factory mtech look!

Q: regarding the 5-bolt conversion, again, if one where to use the e36 parts, would it be the whole assembly? just wondering for future reference....thanks

Otto;

You need to use the entire Front E36 suspension (Complete Strut Assembly and brakes.

Do you have any parts for sale from when your car was original? Like rims or tires?

Euro M3

Yes Raven sold the engine to some shop last year, not sure who or which one.

No I don't have any parts left over, however Raven has some E30M3 parts.

Call John @ 905-477-1800.

I've heard that becasue of the Euro M3s larger airbox and indivudual throttle boddies, it's much harder to throw the euro engine into the E30 than the us spec M. Is this true?

It is pretty much the same setup although with a Euro you loose the brake booster and master cylinder and you need custom work to make this work.

The US spec setup is cheaper and parts are not as expensive as they are for the euro.

Mainly what I heard was that the passanger side foot well was slightly shrunk because of the extra room needed for various parts (like brake booster). Personally, I'd rather not go about doing something like this because the car would still be used as a weekend driver with some track use as well. But the way you talk about it, sounds like everything turned out well. Do you have more pictures of the interior engine bay, maybe undercarriage?

Thanks!

What does a swap like that cost? It is always something I have wanted to do....

You need to budget $20-30K.
