        The number and size required varies slightly by chassis, year, and options. On the '88 M3 I wired this evening I used 12x small(191), 2x medium(193), and 2x large(195), I don't typically count but I was already at it. I know the 318 I wired last week took 1 more medium and at least 1 less small but it was a later chassis so it had the ABS pin in the 101 but no oil temp b/c it wasn't an "M". The easiest way to know what you will need for sure is to flip your chassis's c101 over, pull back the boot and count.

        In the picture below the left most(BR/GN) uses a 191, middle(GN) uses a 193, and the right most (VI/RD) is a 195.

                      The "T" I used was a factory piece that the E30 has in the back, underneath the car. This eliminates having a different pitch/ thread/ diameter as factory. Hope yours works out

                        Hi Guys,

                        I'm currently working on a built m50b30 swap. My car was a '89 325i e30. The engine is very close to the firewall and I don't know how should I connect the heater hoses. I'm using e28 535i mounts with washers on the driver's side.







                        Another problem is that the engine is not sitting perfectly straigt in the engine bay. The front is a little bit close to the passanger side while the back is close to the driver's side and the whole engine almost hits the firewall. Unfortunately it is not visible on the picture.





                        How can I solve these issues? Any idea would be appreciated!

                            Do I have to run an oil cooler for a 24v swap? I know my m42 didn't have one...

                              No, oil capacity is ~6QT on these engines, you are good without it.

                                I cant find the part # for the 2002 brake resevoir. one of the last things I need. I found the blue cloth hose 21521163714 but Im sure I need two fittings in addition to the resevoir itself.

                                edit: thanks Jeff!

                                Here are the part #s to get the 2002 remote resevoir setup
                                (1)- 21 52 1 163 714 = Blue Cloth Hose
                                (1)- 34 32 1 112 388 = 2002 Brake Fluid Reservoir
                                (2)- 34 32 1 102 282 = Angula Pipe
                                (2)- 34 31 1 121 911 = Rubber grommets for the reservoir

                                second edit:

                                you will also need two new grommets for the reservoir also. that werent mentioned anywhere else I looked
