Yes, it will bolt up. But a different drive shalf might be needed.

It's a 6 speed btw.

the man wants you to THINK they'll bolt up. But really, that's only what they want you to think.

^^trevor is right, the trans will bolt up no problem (including the SMG, but the management for the SMG will be difficult to set up). It would be a 6 speed, not a 5 speed.

would the m3 tranny put too much stress on the motor as it's built for a more powerful motor?
