E30 engine swap with M3 s52
Wanted to know what would you need besides the engine itself, tranny, clutch wiring harness, and subframe what else do you need and where can i get a custom made subframe? any links? Also would it be just as easy as putting in an s54?

you should really talk to Stance Factory about this, especially if you want an S54, or PM Mystikal or Zimmie on the board, they run Stance Factory.

You can keep your subframe. S52 is more documented and easier than s54. Do some reading on 24v swap section (all the stickies at least) on and/or e30tech. Again, there's LOADS documented on the m/s5x swap that can give you a complete parts list and much more.

If you're looking for s54, keep in mind theres also other swaps that can do the same power cheaper. +1 on stance factory they do a ton of theses was very well.

I know someone that has all the necessary parts for the swap. Oil pan, booster, etc.
