    I'm working on an S62 swap as well. Do you mind posting the following? Love this build.

    -Radiator fan P/N?
    -A/C Condenser P/N?
    -Condenser Fan P/N?

    -How are you liking the oil filter adapter? Where'd you source that?

    -What A/C lines are you using? They look like off the shelf lines.

    -Did the 300mm.de kit come with the brake booster push-rod? Mine is on the way and I'm hoping that's the case.

    Cheers!

    Lots more progress on the S62 swap!

    next up was modifying the 4 core Z3M radiator. The outlet and the AC compressor wanted to occupy the same space and since the compressor was there first, we decided to modify the radiator :)

    And just like that, no more interference!

    We also installed one of these nifty block adapters so that you can run a screw on filter and not have to use the huge oil filter housing. This saved a ton of space which we gladly took.

    Some heat shielding was added to the firewall.

    Radiator hoses were ordered from Pegasus (awesome website that was super useful to us)

    perfect fit!

    New fuel pump was installed. Used the same pump on the S54 car and it has worked well, so this car gets the same treatment.

    New FPR installed as well with a barb fitting.

    Parallel flow condenser installed with the biggest spal pusher fan we could find

    Very close to our first start now!

    I did the same setup on my weekend track warrior and love it, so it made sense to do the same on this car especially since we were already going to relocate the abs pump.
    The mk60 unit actually saved us some space as well, so win win!

    Started shaping the new metal. We wanted to retain the upper lip and make it look as original as possible.

    Tight on the driver's side but that's been the MO of this swap!

    Thanks, we are super excited!
    That was our thought as well. We want it to stop as well as it goes!

    Alright, first order of business was to tackle the remote booster setup. We want this car to drive as stock as it did before the swap so boosted brakes were a must.

    Factory air box brackets removed and area cleaned up.
    20180916_121803 by Brian Hardy, on Flickr

    Booster roughly placed where it will go. The master cylinder will sit between the headlights and the MK60 ABS system will be fitted as well to improve the braking and also give us a little more room.

    300MM s62 swap kit has arrived! Everything looks to be super nice quality!
    2020-03-31_02-50-52 by Brian Hardy, on Flickr

    Engine dropped in so that we can make sure we don't have any interference with the booster setup.
    20190622_193826 by Brian Hardy, on Flickr

    Pedal bracket removed and modified
    20190622_171300 by Brian Hardy, on Flickr

    Bracket made up using the old coolant tank mounting point
    2020-03-31_02-59-03 by Brian Hardy, on Flickr

    AC compressor mounted up and it's immediately apparent that the frame will need some modification for it to work.

    With the engine back out of the car, we decided to tackle the Vanos units and do a top end reseal with new plugs and all.

    In the middle of this build, the weekend warrior with a 200k mile s54 swap decided it didn't want to put out anymore. Here is a photo of it getting a fresh s54.

    That's the plan, eventually. There are a couple of paint issues that need to be addressed, so it'll get done when it goes back to the painter. Before a few weeks ago, this car hadn't seen the ground in a couple years, and I doubt I put 3000 miles on it since we got it (most of which were driving to/from the Vintage). I'll worry about the finishing touches once the swap's buttoned up.

    One of these days. We sourced a set from a318iS, but a buddy of mine bought the car and wanted it back.
