If you wanted to hack a AWD drive into a E30 just use a X drive m54 out of a E46 325ix It wouldn't be nearly as much effort as a Honda.

Both are fun but awd handles like shit compared to rwd.
Gods chariot is RWD; the e30m was not made awd for a reason

Might as well remove clutch lsd and add viscous instead.... wait thatís what the awd 325xi has a lame Vlsd in the back.

Rwd > everything. Bmw and the gods of DTM agree

I'll just have to respectfully disagree. My sisters 1995 Camry handles like shit, the 325ix? No, it handles perfectly fine. But this isn't about FWD, AWD, and RWD. Its about putting a K24 in an E30

K24 sideways with a transaxle + transfer case in the nose of a e30?

What a miserable and horrid idea

A diagram of drivetrain inefficiency and understeer.

I owned an evo; it was the worst handling car for uphill left hairpins. Just understeers

Add up the weight of 2!!!! Front Diffs, a stupid looking transfer case that has questionable reliability and a transaxle + engine sideways in the front and you have created.......understeer.


Gods chariot shall not understeer.

K24crv setup sideways has all of the understeer, none of the 4g63 turbo and no factory lsd option. Two open Diffs attached to each other is not very heterosexual

Even more understeer

Looking forward to a swap kit!

I am really hoping that a swap kit comes out soon. I know if I really wanted to I might be able to fab up the engine mounts and just use the existing KMiata adapter plate. Was hoping it had come out sooner, just finished up an m52 swap in my eta after blowing my 2.7.... will soon be in the market for another e30 to accept a K24. Anyone know if the garagistic kit is projected to have an oil pan/intake/header solution available?

Sure, quick update for you guys.

We've been working on some new parts that will be really beneficial to any RWD K swap, including the E30. We're also moving into a much larger space this month which will allow us to finish up the E30 parts alongside our other projects.

So things are progressing, although a little slower than we'd like them to be. Once the move is complete and a couple new parts are on the market, the rest of the swap is going to come together very quickly and we'll have lots of pictures for you all.

Thanks for your continued interest and patience!

Garagistic kit will include adapter for transmission, engine arms, and oil pan. I asked specifically about all three. I don't know about the rest. And they said affordable compared to other options available else ware.

Affordable because it probably won't fit
