Do you mean an engine from a 540? It's actually a 4.5L (or 4.4 depending on yr)

guys, dang, i was kinda hoping to throw a pile of pics up here when the car was done! its underway right now. the motor is in, but now i have to mount the brake master cylinder being the left headlight, same as the 540s and whatnot, but i need to modify all the stuff out of the 540 to work in the e30. the front crossmember also had to be spaced down, to bring the output shaft in line with the diff. since that was moved down, the steering had to be extended 1.12 inches to reduce to muhc angle on that upper U joint. that stuff is all done and works mint.
pics of it now would just be a mess! Im alsom doing all the mock up in a parts car, so i dont have to take mine off the road until all the time consuming work is done.

pics soon.
