View Full Version : If it wasent for bad luck!!!
Well my eta is less than what i need as i have found. The engine has had it and so has the u joints and diff. I have the parts to fix it but then I am into a engine swap again. This eta is a 85 so it has the square c101 plug not the round so it has to be cut and rewired. Similar to the 318i. We all know how that went...........:(
So i have 2 lumps. I wish I was closer to the gta I could just drop the car and other engine off to bimmersport and get it installed.I was told the e to I swap was alot easier due to less parts and wiring ect. Any comment on that fact?

WOW it never stop...Just put the i engine in there and enjoy it for now.
Til you sell the car and get a newer E30
I have to get the pin to pin wiring for the square to round plug.Other than that it is all the same pretty much

good luck on the car
I know the swap is a bit easier due to similar mechanical parts but the wiring is just as hard as the 318i was. Unless i have all the info and i can verify it from a second source i wont do it.

my car is not done nether so feel your pain too
the last e30 sat unfinished for 2 years. I will not do that with this one.

isn't there any e to i swap info avaiable on the net ? i'm supprised rev doesn't have something
almost everything i have found only details the ease of the 86 and up e to I swap. Due to the round plug on the 86 and up cars. I should be able to find something. Just a matter of looking harder I guess
