most of them have S50 .......I think s52 is euro engine with 321 hp......if so too expensive to maintain it here...in can

he is in US so im guessing he's refering to the US spec M3? because down there they call it S50 for 3.0L and s52 for 3.2L M3 motors...

nice ride, awesome in fact..

you need a bunch of conversion parts either way you go..i'll start you off from what i can remember..

E30 IX brake booster
E34 oil pan
E28 Master cylinder (this and the E30 one might be mixed up)
i suggest you get the M motor mounts, i think you need an E34 M5 mount and some other mount (off memory..which sucks)

and a few other parts...if you get the S52 you need OBD1 conversion parts:

OBD1 intake manifold
OBD1 wiring harness

i think theres something more, and this can all be taken off an E36 325 or 3.0L M3...also if you get a S52 i suggest getting an 3.0L M3 or 325 throttle body because the non ACS-T throttle bodies flow better. good luck*th-up*

Good work jon. The motor mounts I used are e34 m5 and e28 m5. As for the master cylinder, I am running my e30, and an e21 brake booster (couldn't get an ix one)
