    That would be interesting to know, not sure what diameter the 02 booster is.

    The stock E30 booster (non-ix) is 10" diameter. IX/E32 booster is 9"/8" diameter.

    Hmm let me check the 2002 one I have.

    Is it smaller then the 2002, that would be awesome and more readily available, so he used the E90 Master as well hmmmmm, I am liking this.

    I didn't use any washers no. You may have to run a die over then to lengthen the threads?

    Im doing the m54 swap right now and bought the same engine mounts from 6 series bmw.

    But there is no thread to the end of the stud which i trimed and schould be bolted to the frame.

    I think there is about 0.5 inch of the stud without thread

    Did you use so much washers to bolt it down?

    You'd still have to fab everything that he had to. If there was an OEM solution Jordan would have used it.
