Yes,,,,,, I had it done like i changed the M20/E30 for S38B38/E30

so the engine ,,S38B38 is an oem wiring ,, and the car was modified to talk to S38b38

a friend of mine followed the instruction on e30.de

,, an option you should consider

DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING on the car or engine,, then both car and engine can be converted back.. if something happens etc etc

do an adapter conversion

Any help please .
Hi all, this is my first post on hear and im sorry if this has been covered in the past.

I need to no what sump will work on a M88 to fit it in an E30. (the M88 one has the bowl in the middle)

We have been given an E30 that already has the M88 in it but it is fitted very badly ,So bad the front pully is out the front of the car as the engine is so far to the front!! Its shocking.
I have been asked to fit it to an E30 M3 but i need it to look like it should be there so i need a front sump as a starting point.

thanks . Robin RAW motorsport

B38 and B36 sumps should probably bolt up, don't know what modifications would be needed tho', if you look at the diagrams.
