      325e running strong.
      Complete B35 in hand.
      Looking for a good 5 speed transmission ( direct fit)


        2 e30's

        2 s38b36's

        heavily modified subframe

        g265 od

        g280 od

        Thats about it.

        and a turbo m10


          1986 325e

          -m30b35 from a 1992 e32 735i
          -g260/5(?) from a 1988 e28 535i
          -Clutch and flywheel from an e34 M5
          -e28 535i front half of driveshaft shortened 3/4 of an inch, factory 325e back half
          -Joe Funk's engine mounts
          -e30 325e transmission support

          -e34 535i engine harness and computer
          -e30 325e fusebox plug spliced on
          -e30 325e coil

          -e32 735i manifolds and downpipe mated to the factory 325e exhaust

          -e28 535i radiator
          -e34 535i hoses; upper rad shortened 2", lower rad lengthened 2"; heater core hoses modified to fit
          -e34 535i expansion tank mounted on firewall

          -Ford Thunderbird 19# skinny injectors

          -e34 535i airbox
          -e30 325ix washer fluid tank

          -No firewall modifications were needed with Joe's mounts. I did take the hood liner out, but this wasn't necessary.
          -I had to cut 2 of the lower supports off of the radiator support in order for the e28 radiator to fit. I am currently using wire ties to hold the bottom, but I will be making some sort of mount to hold it more securely
          -I had to enlarge the hole in the firewall where the ecu plug goes through.
          -In order to fit the e32 downpipes, I had to cut some of the sound deadening off the firewall. I took the metal insulator pieces off the downpipes as well, but they might fit with them still on
          -I converted to an 1995 e36 M3 steering rack while I had the engine out, there were no clearance problems at all
          -In order to fit the e34 overflow tank, I had to cut the lower support off the bottom of the tank and remove all of the harness cover studs on the firewall. Hood modification was also required.
          -I am using a m42 coolant temp sensor with no problems

          So far I have only driven it about 50 miles. I am having fuel pump problems than I haven't been able to diagnose.

          I'll update this with pics and sound clips once I get it running again.
