auto to 5 spd conversion

Hi guys, I was wondering if somebody can tell me the stuff that I need to convert my 92 325i auto to a 5 spd tranny. Do I need to change the ECU? and what are the cost for this mods.

Your help will be much apreciated.

No need to change the ECU. There is a computer for your Auto. tranny, but you don't need to take it out. There isn't a whole lot of wiring going on with the swap, mostly bolts, patience, and a small hand to install the clutch master cylinder!!!!

The cost varies depending on whether you are performing your own labor or not, and the acquirement of parts.

I would usually say, " Do a seach.", but I don't know how well the subject is covered here on Maxbimmer.

Here is a parts list I did on DTM awhile back (look a few posts down):

Hope that helped give you an idea of what is in store.

you can try calling Mantis Racing in Oakville (905 844 6219) they perhap will be able to give you a quote over the phone. they specialize on German cars. as well as engine swaps on bimmer.

good luck.
