Adapter? How about making a custom driveshaft Corvette front, Bimmer rear.

I think Zimmie has the right idea, I swapped out a 4 cyl for a 6cyl in a Jeep CJ7 years ago. I thought it'd be a piece of cake since the 4 and 6 are almost the same (less 2 cyl). ..BS...I won't do it again. You may as well get a V8.
