    Thank you for the info.

    Porsche 944 brake booster. One post says that I just need to cut the rod and it will be good enough. Another post says it needs to be cut and rethreaded.

    Can i use my existing transmission? If so, do I need a new driveshaft? If I need a new driveshaft, I assume it is because I have to move the tranny. if so, do I then need new tranny mounts? Pretty sure I need new engine mounts - e28 mounts bolt right up? Do I need a new clutch, slave cylinder,master? If I can keep my tranny, can I keep my 3.75 lsd diff?

    Do I need a new radiator? I saw an E30 88 radiator and overflow tank listed on a swap parts list somewhere in the thread. I assume new hoses. Keep the E30 coolant temp sensor, all other sensors come from the m50?

    325ix booster is a bolton and necessary?
    as e 30 said.all ans are here......


    you can use your getrag 260...w/ your 3 73.....stock ds.


    IX booster ........



    or....... use from 320i or 944 using oe mc.
