S54 Swap Modifications Available

Hey guys, I wanted to move this over here because I started these swaps for S54's originally but the thread is in another section. I offer a modification service for your S54 pan and E30 subframe. The swap was designed using AKG 24v swap mounts. The modifications to the drivers side sump differ depending on the style of pan. I can make the mounts on the subframe for an E30 rack or E36 M3/Z rack.

I will have a website up soon.

Here are some pictures of the swap installed, these pictures have the simpler style pan with a side drain plug and E30 rack installed.
















Thanks for looking! Contact information is in my signature.

Hey that's cool. Ive heard about custom subframes so the s54 pan can be used but I didn't know the pan still needs modding. Do you have a way to use an unmodded pan?

For most people doing this swap, an e34 m50 front sump pan and pump, with a proper baffle is more than enough. Nice product nonetheless.

^^But the E34 pan is no good for ground clearance. At least, that's my reason for going 2-sump.

I might be too picky - but the S54 had oiling problems stock, and now you're replacing the pretty well designed oiling system with one meant for a vanilla engine and a 6500rpm redline, then expecting it to adequately supply what is basically a detuned race motor at 8000rpm.

it's a compromise some are willing to take (and they may have reasons/justifications), but I wouldn't do it personally...

I agree. Dual pickup is not necessary unless your gonna race on the track. It does add to coolness though. Ground clearance is not an issue for me with the E34 pan. Parts of my exhaust and also my custom front sway bar are lower than the pan.

^^Single sump isn't an issue at the track either. I was at Daytona for a track day when Akard was running one of the race groups. I asked how the E34 pump was treating him (on a Euro S50) and he said it was solid and consistent. I've known a few other guys that ran the same setup with no oil pressure drop in race groups on sticky tires at VIR, CMP, Road Atlanta, Sebring etc-- all high stress tracks in one form or another. Justify either how you want, it's a preference thing really (per the data). Both are solutions to the same problem.
