Angry NOOOOO!! Is My tranny blown?!?!

I just got home from school and damn it was hell driving it back... I was driving home and when it shifted from 2nd to 3rd it would shift into neutral. Or when it does shift from 2nd to 3rd the gears would slip and rev before shifting to 3rd. It sucked ass. I got stuck at the lights cuz the car was stuck on neutral and wouldn't drive. This really sucks asshole... I just had my Magnaflow exhaust installed yesterday too!! What do you guys think this it is?! I'm soo pissed off right now and sad.

you need a lot, and it is a lot of work. Unless you are really attached to your car, its better to get a new one. But heres off the top of my head the parts i used. Also, the gearing changes drastically, as the auto final drive is like 3.91 and manual is between 2.9 and 3, so that makes top speed barely 120, and a horrible freeway cruising speed rpm, so a different geared differential would be a good idea as well.

clutch kit with flywheel
driveshaft with guibo
slave cyl with hose
master cyl with hose
clutch and brake pedal housing
shifter linkage-almost $200 worth of dealer parts
possible new tranny brace
pilot bearing

Then there is some wiring to make the car start, and also to have reverse lights and cruise control. Finish with some fluids, and that should be about it.

km's dont matter that much on manual trannys, it depends on the abuse its taken.

here is an article on the 5spd swap.
http://www.bmwe30.net/cgi-bin/datacg...158&Section=11


BTW. The final drives on autos are 4.10.
120 would not be ur top speed, more like 180 or something......it can't be that low
