Beautiful. Congrats!! I know taking on a project like that has its ups and downs but Id say you finished it pretty quickly! Good work!

What are your plans for the exhaust? I hear that's when things get quite difficult...

I would love to do this on my cabrio in a year or two.

How much custom work/fabrication was it? Mainly just the remote brake setup?

Question, my brother is thinking of doing m52 swap to his e30... before you put in the motor, did you take it apart and clean it, are put it straight inside and hooked it up?

Just noticed you relocated the ABS pump...

I sorta wanted to do that to mine but....laziness struck me.

5thseries, ya i pulled the oil pan off, put on new gaskets, rear main, oil line O rings, stuff like that. if didnt leak oil, but i didnt want it to start!

duct taper, ya i would say all the fabing was just the brake set up, and it wasnt that bad to do, took a bit of time, and routing new brake lines took some time as well, but the rest was just gronking it out.
