    We have it little bit harder Over here in Germany. I don't know you heared it but we have inspection department called "TÜV". it's really hard to register the modifications over stock, espacially the structure of the chassis.

    For me I think modifying the oilpan or even building it from scratch is better in my case. But I don't know, even when correctly modified, if it will work?!

    Correct me if I'm thinking false but when the diff pickup replaced further back the engine will in stock place not touching the firewall and the diff will clear the steering rack right?
    The only downside I think is the at the front drive shaft had to be shorten as well. But that's also ok for me.

    Easier to deal with than fabbing an oil pan from scratch that will support the diff. Nisse made it somehow?

    Whats about the Firewall and the steeringrack/crossmeber clearance?

    Hi dudes I read the entire thread, really amazing work done so far :up:

    I'm thinking about an ix build but have questions.
    Will this constellation work?

    M50 engine (of course)
    E34 transmission (cause of the gearing)
    E34 trans case (to control it manual like nisse)
    E34 front diff (cause stronger and taller/longer ratio)
    Wich Shatfts??? E34 I guess
    Frankenpan (to let the engine in stock position.


    from what I see the m50 pan has the pickup/mounting for the front diff more foreward than the m20 pan wich causes interference with steeringrack and crossmember. Will it work to cut off the hole diff pickup and weld it more backwords to m20 spec, to have more space to let the engine in stock position rather than cutting and smashing the firewall?

    Another question is: Will the e34 transfercase bolt on the e30 transmission?

    I think the easiest way to swap is all e30 parts except frankenpan. Then we have to live with m20 spec tilted engine wich causes interference with brakebooster and theres downside like weak front diff. Now days the diffs getting rare.

    I hope to get answers here.

    Cheers Kurt66

    so you are using a getrag 420? you gotta post pics of all this!

    get a membership to imageshack. download your pics on there. it will reduce them to what ever size you want. select "post in forum". copy the link and paste on this thread.

    She fired up!! So a few things specific to AWD 24V swap.

    1. Frankestein pan, is the easiest way if you ask me as many shops weld aluminium these days, your angle thus will not allow a brake booster smaller than Porsche fit there, the steering wheel assy is too high. And you use your current motor mounts.
    2. Any driveshaft/line shot will shorten and lengthen your shafts as you wish, I was charged $79.
    3. Please, ANYONE has to use a new CPS otherwise they should be banned before posting and asking about no start issues. Honestly I went through tons of search post, I went back and changed the CPS to a just a used one and it fired right up, I mean first kick. So that measuring of resistance on the CPS is just not reliable and emperic. I can imagine how much sorrow and money has been dumped on this issue.
    4. Good luck all.

    haha thanks the shoe fits very well, the trans is from 540i, mated with custom bell housing/spliced, actually welded on, clutch from e46 M3. The rear of tranny has adapter machined to fit and also welded on and thus TC bolted onto it. I will provide specific pics of this, but boy I gotta figure out how to reduce size of the pics lol
