        Anyone running an m50tu with a g240? I've heard both good and bad things about the setup. A g240 should be able to take the power, they have shorter gearing/closer ratios than a 260, and I think they're smaller/lighter.
        The first car I ever rode in was an e30

          I have a G240 on my M50 and I love it, if you get a chance to drive a 318is pay attention to how light the throws are and how nice and notchy it is

              I drive one every day ;). My dad's 325i has the stock shifter so it's an unfair comparison, but I have no bad things to say about my transmission.

                      how much do you shave on the M20 flywheel to work with S52 and G260 combo?

                        m20 flywheel has to be shaved 1/8" to fit.

                            1. Engine: 95' S50b30US. S52 valves and retainers. replaced most wear items.

                            2. Engine wiring: E34 525i wiring harness w/ repinned C101 plug for a factory look.

                            3. Drivetrain: ZF320 5 speed trans / e36 328i front driveshaft / stock trans brace / 320i trans mounts / S2.93 (great MPG and overall daily driver use, but want something shorter)

                            4. Motor Mounts: e28 535i engine mounts.

                            5. Brake Booster: e21 brake booster, res and master cylinder

                            6.Cooling system: M20 late model radiator, e36 rad hoses, late model expansion tank, 16in electric pusher fan

                            7. Exhaust: SuperSprint replica longtube headers > Y-pipe > 2.5in mandrel bent straight piping > thrush 28in resonator > magnaflow muffler

                            header fitment issues i ran into were the headers were ever so slightly touching the cross member. The biggest issue for me is one of the headers is touching the firewall which causes some vibration in the cabin. Not bad, but kinda annoying at times. overall the exhaust sounds quiet at idle but rips at WOT.:up:
