    2.47 front diff from E46 330xd purchased. Just asked the seller if he has the 2.47 rear as well.

    I'll compare to see if these gears will go into the E53 case. If so, that will work out great. I'll throw a Quaife in while I'm at it and have an immensely expensive front diff!

    Right... the diff is the thing that can't be fixed ;)

    No, it's the diff, not the oil pan that runs into the steering rack

    24v motor mounts like an e28 m5 mounts, or something like revshifts with

    No, custom mount arms

    Unless you've seen someone do it, we don't think that will work either

    BMW ran out, so you'll need to get one from a junkyard transmission in Europe.

    The few people who've done it have either built a franken pan using the stock iX pan to run the 24V engine at M20 angle or carved up the firewall in order to fit the E34 pan between the iX rack and the firewall.

    That would be ridiculously complicated fabrication.

    question

    Alright i have some questions on this for going with a 24v swap.

    If I am able to get the euro 260g case i can use the stock driveline minus the e30 ix front dif. it will have the proper angle to clear the break booster. The oil pan will even be at the right angle for the half shaft, minus interfering with the steering rack.

    The e34 front diff, is a different ratio then the rear so it would have to be swapped, but not a big deal. From my understanding they have the same spline count, and the e34 dif mounts in the same position so it would let me reuse the e30 ix half shafts.

    This would maintain the stock brake booster location, angle for the half shafts, and retain most of the original drive line.

    so the needed bits would be:
    24v motor mounts like an e28 m5 mounts, or something like revshifts with e36 brackets (maybe e34?).
    m50 engine.
    e34 oil pan (to be notched to clear the steering rack)
    e34 front diff
    matching rear diff gearing or use a z3 gears in the e34 dif to match the original rears
    euro 260g transmission case pn: 23111228301 to go on the front end of the stock transmission

    am i missing anything? it seems like a few people have done this but have done quite a bit more than what is needed for just an m50 swap.

    or i suppose if you wanted to modify the e30 ix oil pan for the 10 degree change, that would allow someone to keep the origional e30 ix front differential. it would have to clear the steering rack and have to allow for the changed angel of the half shaft. As long as the mounting compensated for the 10 degree change, and cleared the needed part, it would mount in the stock location. That would work as well..I think.

    I want mine to be automatic based on differential driveshaft speed, and maybe lateral/longitudinal g's with a "launch" button that gives 100% lock until the vehicle exceeds whatever speed threshold I set.
    No it doesn't, so you got to have a after market ECU or something too.

    This looks cool:

    Looks like an option for square wheel/tire fitment on an iX with max effort rear wheels/tires.

    I'll just have to count teeth when I get both.

    I would like to put the DZ sixth into a BZ box, if you know anyone who has some gears hanging around.

    Yes it does, heres from a 135i for example :)
    https://www.bildelsbasen.se/?link=it...st_id=32774194

    Hmm i dont think ive read about it in english forums, but in swedish :) People normally use DZ versions in M20 configs here because it fits the engine angle. Pretty common that they use DZ on M50s too though, mostly because of better price and theres is more of them. But BZ version is getting more used because of the better gearing as i mentioned and that the angle is like the M50 etc.
    Specially the first gear is short on the DZ and most people here doesnt really like that :P

    Oh and there are more than one bellhousing at least on the GS6-53DZ, some are too big and doesnt fit M20/M50 etc. It has to do with the codes after the gearbox model, like HGA, THGZ etc.

    That is exactly what I'd expect to see based on the RealOEM info.

    Do the tags actually say BZ? Is there an English thread anywhere in which someone grabs a 335i box and counts input/output turns to estimate ratios?
