        How much adjustment was left in the driveshaft (assuming you installed one)?

          Yes there was a drive shaft installed. As we spoke about before through PMs there is plenty of adjustment left in the drive shaft. I would say no more than an inch +/-. I thought you had one installed already once, I assumed you would already have known this.

            Anyone know if the 6 speed from a E46 330i ZHP (GS6-37BZ - TBEZ) is the same length as the E46 M3 (S6S 420G - TBAI)? The ZHP transmissions are a lot cheaper brand new. Just a thought.

              Cheaper is not always the best thing. If you are looking for the gears yes but if you are putting down more power then I would go with the Getrag

                The 6 speed from the 330i still has a higher NM rating then a zf from a e36.

                  Nah, as we discussed, a friend installed it. It didnt appear to have much adjustment left in it when I looked at it, but then again it was bolted up and the car had been driving fine, so I wasnt too nit-picky about it.

                            Yes, you can. Talk to my friend Jordan at Southbend Clutches. JordanMD88 is his SN on BFC.

                              I was thinking of doing the same thing. Use a E36 clutch and LTW flywheel but then just replace the friction disc with one from the E46 M3 6spd. Can anyone think of a reason why this wont work? The disc is the same size and thickness. So we should be ale to use this clutch/flywheel combination and also eliminate the E46 self adjusting clutch setup as well.

                                As time went on, the factory developed the car each year, making it faster, more comfortable, and capable of handling at higher speeds.
                                You don’t want this. You want the trickiest, most dangerous, oldest model you can find. Only then can you prove to the world that you’re a man.
