Have you completed an M30 conversion in your E30? Are you knee-deep in the conversion?
Register yourself here. This way you will know who to bounce ideas off of!

I will start:

Location: Portland OR
M30B35 (from 88 635csiA)
Euro M635 lightweight flywheel (85 M635)
Getrag 280 transmission (88 M5)
Shift linkage, unsure, came out of parts bin.
Modified E36 M3 driveshaft (98 M3)
3.46 LSD (from 87 635csiA)
Motor Mounts, Home made, and going into production.
