this might be a repost and sorry if it is. also how come people use the 318 for these (bigger motor) swaps more than a 325? anyway check it.

to heavy for an e30 chassis, unless you wanna go in a straight line.

hehe is it possible to do a V12 swap into a e30 chassis?

Lets say 735iL engine to e30 :D

people have done the v12 from the 750 and 850 it probably costs way to much the motor from the 735 or at least the older 735s will fit in the e30, the m30 swap isn't that uncommon

Thx, v12 from the newer 750/850's will be insanely expensive.

Thats so dodgy - what country is that car in. In NZ we have to actually have our springs captive in the back!
