Looking for a few parts, already searched high and low.

I've called 8 different places, 10 different websites and posted ads.
I can't find a decently priced m50 swap brake booster(e21 320i, 325ix or mk1 Gti) anywhere, I get quotes of $400 after core refund and other such ridiculous prices.

So I'm looking for any booster that will work for this swap, I'm not picky just want to get it done.

I'm looking for a full engine gasket set for an m50b25TU.

Transmission bolts which attach the trans to the engine.

Clutch and flywheel.

I know I'll think of more, any help would be much much appreciated.

Start with the obvious.

http://www.r3vlimited.com/board/showthread.php?t=179577

Booster with MC for 115 shipped. Probably has bolts kicking around too.

If you don't have one, I recommend you grab his 318 ECU bracket too, I don't think yours is the same. It makes the M50 dme mount like OEM.

i have an m20 flywheel!!! and clutch disk! pressure plate is bent but you can hammer it back :p

the transmission bolts are the same...or should be. what tranny does the '84 318 use?

save yourself the trouble and find a getrag 260 tranny and its driveshaft, instead of having to mix and match the shafts. you will just need to hand bend the selector rod and get a custom tranny brace with the g260.

and look for a booster thats from an iX!!! its got the spacer on it to fit the stock holes of the body! the other boosters require you to weld the rod in them into a different length.

you can use the stock booster...if you seriously modify the intake manifold. shave it down or melt it down!

www.autopartsway.ca for your gasket needs!

^I'm using the stock e36 transmission, I think it was a 325I. The motor is a M50B25TU
