    I can't recall, but I'm almost positive there is no Mtech2 airbag steering wheel that fits an e30.. Maybe an e36 but it won't work for an e30.

    Would this work? I would just need to make an extra cut. http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-Brake-Pe...80645171649%26

    I just had a thought, sense my car is an airbag car.. can I run a M-Tech II airbag steering wheel and have the airbag system still work with the front crash sensors. The car currently has the whole airbag system except the little white pin and spring.

    So I just went to swap my 3.25 lsd in my car, and had to swap the e30 diff cover for that to happen....... well the diff cover in my 1991 318i is smaller than the 3.25 lsd. So I believe when I locate the correct diff cover it will still bolt in. Can anyone confirm this? Because arent all late model e30s the big diff?

    UPDATE Problem:

    I got my motor from a wrecked car and both the motor mount arms were broken, I have been ordering through Pelicanparts but they do not seem to carry the mount arms, does anyone have a part number for them? Thanks! And still working through the wiring while waiting for parts, will be putting the 3.25LSD in my car this evening most likely.

    Also I am going to ordering a new driveshaft center support bearing as mine was totally shot after 263k miles, I will be using the m3 driveshaft, but I still need a 318i e30 center support bearing correct?

    one is the x20, as you surmised. the second smaller one, with 9 pins (or thereabouts) is the x6031, which contains mostly emissions equipment but also the VSS signal (pin 3.. although some people get the VSS from x20pin9), and the one with the least pins is x6011.


    spend time with the ETMs. i know it's daunting at first, but eventually it becomes very easy to read.

    OBD1 is even harder to start up - it has no check engine light code scanner to tell you what exact items are wrong.
    Having OBD2 allows one to plug in a bluetooth OBD2 port and diagnose the car while running with your smartphone; Torque application is incredibly helpful when you have issues with any sensor - OBD1 harness is designed to allow one to mix up plugs - crank position sensor plugs right into the oil pan level. Quite a bear if you are trying to figure out why the engine will not start!

    S52 is much better ran in OBD2 original form; even the OBD2 intake manifold with small diameter runners is preferred if you BMW factory OEM driving car with matching low end grunt.

    these pedestrian single throttle engines are terrible on top end RPM's compared to the Individual throttle engines built by BMW to be high rpm mills. Pointless to stress it out when the gains are really minimal.



    I race a e30 24v+ obd1 converted OBD2 engine + m50 manifold with a few different chipsets (we have 3 spare DME's all with different chips) every bolt on possible is installed as its a full race only car.
    bimmerworld TB with 3.5" maf + 21.5lb injectors, Dinan Big bore throttle. Turner and TRM chips.....)


    I Daily drive a 98 M3 with 100% original S52; recent built head.

    ********************************************
    i'll take the original BMW setup complete with original M52 intake manifold and original 3" afm/ OEM S52 dme any day over the franken managed item with hella mods. its not even close :)

    More on topic I would love someone to point me in the answer to these questions.

    And is a e36 bentley the best manual out there for the car? I have one for my e30 and it is great.
    you might try contacting Dave Markert for some help/ direction ( 328ijunkie) he is a proponent of OBD2 installs He also works with TRM for ecu work
