    Part of that M42 rad was for the stock airbox to fit. That engine bay is great.
    PLEASE refrain from quoting entire posts of the OP's list. We don't need the entire post replicated a dozen times throughout the thread.

        1. Engine
        S50b30US with 95k out of a wrecked M3. Has schrick cams, 3.5" maf, 24# injectors, and a besian systems vanos seal and rattle kit.

        2. Engine Wiring
        Went with the S50's harness. Chopped the X20 off and crimped on new pins and popped it all into a C101. I also stripped out all the wires that don't need to run through the harness(AC bump wires, EWS wire, pulled the 02 sensor out of the harness so it runs like it did on the M42, etc). I had issues with the EWS on the silver label ecu and war chip combo . Switched to a red label + war chip.

        3. Drivetrain
        Using the zf that came with the engine. UUC ltw fly and OE M5 clutch. Used an E30 CSB o n an E36 328 driveshaft to an e28 3.25s diff

        4. Shift Lever and Linkage
        OE E36 M3 shift carrier. Z3 3.0 shifter, UUC DSSR(straight, not bent), delrin carrier bushings. The Z3 shifter had bushing material sticking out past the main metal part of the pivot that had to shaved off to fit the DSSR I got(unsure of exact model).

        5. Motor Mounts
        revshift blue(soft) 24v swap mounts. Pretty happy with them, but the stud lengths can be a pain on the bottom.

        6. Brake Booster, Master Cylinder, and External Reservoir
        944 booster, sotck MC and res for now. I'm not a fan of the remote setups... I used stock clevis and lengthened the threads. DO NOT try to do this with a harbor freight quality die. Its just frustrating. Go spend 6.00 on a quality die from fastenall. Took me two minutes with that die. I used a stock(including hose) E36 328 check valve with a new grommet from napa.

        7. Steering System
        E36 M3 rack, E30 lines. E36 ps res mounting bracket. I shorted the large hose coming from the pump to the res a bit. Routed the smaller one over the motor mount arm then back up into it. I'd love to have a shorter tube for it coming off the rack so i can run it under the motor mount arm.

        8. Cooling System
        I hate the look of the 325 coolant res. So until I can fab a better option, im' using an M42 rad(new) with a 16" spal pusher replacing the stock aux fan and retaining the OE dual speed setup. I cut up some random hoses from advance to make it all work.

        9. Exhaust System
        raceland shorty headers. Had the tube/flange area filled in and ground out so its smoother. Fitment/seal to the downpipes sucked, so new downpipes were fabbed. This goes into a custom H pipe with O2 bung, and 2.25" piping all the way back to a 2.5" dual in/out magnaflow. Note: I had to go with treehouse racing cabs to clear the tube flange. If I had to do it again i would try out the long tubes. However, the shorties clear my IE sway bar and subframe by a mile.

        not done yet, but heres how my setup looks.

            S52B32: full conversion over to OBDI (includes S50 valve cover, coils, fuel rail, manifold). I was lucky and the head had a 3rd pre-drilled hole for the coolant temp sensor.
            Shrick street cams (intake/exhaust)
            24lb injectors
            3" stock MAF

Replaced all shift linkage bushings and 40k miles later - still tight.

                4. Motor Mounts
                e28 M5 with one .09" washer on pass side for header clearence.

                6. Cooling

                    Kamotors intake w/ E34 intake boot.
                    How do you like the kamotors intake? I'm thinking of replacing my unprotected K&N filter with one. I assume when you say E34 intake boot you are using an E34 525i intake boot? I saw a picture of your set up in another thread and it looks really clean so I may replicate it.
