Myth or true

When you make a M50 conversion on an e30 I heard it has a lot of vibration this that issue.

Is this true?

Hi jeremy.

When you did the conversion what 'needs' to be changed. The essentials not the options.

I mean yes the engine goes in, what else? tranny? diff? wiring harness? muffler?

TIA

I can supply you with a chip to work in an EWS system if required, as I figured out how to do this. Then you can use this "silver label" 413.
