E30 m52 swap guide?
 
Looking for a parts list or a walk through i already have the m52 and zf please help?

Tons of info on r3v and an e30tech. There's even members on here with build threads. Do a quick search and you won't be disappointed. I'm just finishing up my m52 swap so feel free to PM anytime.
Anything in particular you want to know?

Here's a good place to start. Once you are done that just follow members build threads. Any hiccups along the way are usually solved in the thread and documented.

Hope that helps for now.

The swap itself is dead easy. The wiring is a little trickier, but overall still pretty simple. Are you going obd1 or obd2?

Without an engine leveler removal with trans is a pain, engine leveler at princess auto is $40 and a lifesaver. Anyone doing a swap should have one!

or just do a removable rad support. One of my biggest regrets when I did my swap was not doing that, and I will be next time my motor is removed.

That only works for one car, the right tools work on them all.
