    You'd rather spend the extra time and money to swap that, versus buying an M20 car? Do you already have the car and M20 ready to go?

    I have an extra M52 in pieces, but they both need rebuilding

For now I'm looking for a detailed thread with this info. I searched and it threw me back to the m30 and other swaps forum and I gave up after 19 pages.
    Btw, I'm using my phone to search, so don't lynch me.
    Here is a car that comes to mind that went from m42 to m20:

    What’s going on/going to happen with the m42?

    So close!! Well, I'll be ready for another one soon. This time of the year is prime autox/track season. Not blazing hot in the heat of the day but also not freezing in the morning.

    Busted oil pan again, not looking to pay big money on one and car has sat for about 6 months now.
    Bummer, where's your skid plate! I've seen prices on those stupid pans go way up... glad I snatched one from the yard before they became a black market commodity
