    Nando’s just trying to help you understand why you were wrong in this post. Not much to misinterpret, but I agree that we’re getting off topic and appreciate the effort to move on....

    I'd definitely seen the BMP kit before I started in on all this, but at that point it was one or two very blurry pictures on a facebook post. I don't think they'd finished the first car yet. Dont forget...

    MIG welding mild steel is like hot glue compared to aluminum (to me anyway). I've already got the equipment and I'm fairly confident in my ability to eyeball weld strength. Aluminum would be a far better...

    RIP your inbox when hoveringuy finds out about you. He might already be in his truck eastbound.

    My plan for the engine arms is to make them very similar to the factory m20 steel arms... flat...

    I’m not saying an inch is wrong, I expect that mine is somewhere around 1.5” back from where ever my arms would have landed over the e30 motor mounts. I was just desperately searching for another...

    Ah. Yes. Important variables to consider are that CWLO’s subframe is (I believe, correct me if I’m wrong guys) a modified arc-asylum subframe that previously accommodated his M54. He may already have...

    Oh interesting that one of those has three bolts... and the socketed mount is directly in line with the motor mount. I would have 100% thought the socket was functional seeing only that arm.

    The easiest way I can think of to keep the plate a flat piece and provide an aluminum socket for the boss would be to enlarge the hole straight through the plate, turn a socket piece with a lip less than...

    Ok. Like I said. We need all the help we can get.

    This is the starboard (right/bottom/low) side of my block. It might be different on different motor arms, but on these (which I think are...

    No! Please speak your part, and no need to hold back. This isn’t my build thread, it’s an n52 swap discussion.

    When I say rotation I mean rotation of the engine arm *around* the interlocked...

    like I said... you’ve got me thinking about it hard. The faces on the block, and thus all four milled faces including the bored one, are coplanar, like you say.

    The bolts are significantly...

    Luke makes an incredibly good point... but it’s only one of the four bolt faces that are countersunk on each arm... (the brackets shown above only caught three, in certainly planning on using four like...

    Fingers crossed you’ll be able to say that about mine before long! My DME’s should be on your doorstep ;)

    I don’t have a reason to use those mounts... I think I have everything on track...

    I’m confused by your reference to whatever powers the pump... the fuel pump relay on the e30 is in the box on the left fender... don’t we have a full amperage, ignition switched supply from there...

    Both the Z4 and the X3 have a pin 13 to a 5A power, while the 330i does not. It’s on the top left of the diagram. This is probably only relevant to me because I’m looking at my e90 Bentley while I’m...

    RE: the e90 trans bracket. Yes. It’s absolutely possible to build a crossmember under the e90 bracket. I just decided it was easier to locate the crossmember in the original position where the floor...

    It’s so much easier clicking around connectors instead of searching the diagrams for the same number. Thanks for directing me there.

    there’s definitely a pin out difference between...

    There’s a reference in another forum that the EKP also has switched ignition? Not on the e90 it doesn’t... maybe that was a change to get fuel pressure faster while the other modules booted up?

    On the off-chance that someone has the Bentley for the Z4 (or there’s a better ETM for e90’s) id love a copy of the EKP diagram. I picked up a 16146766003 module with pigtails and I have an extra...
