I am talking about a detail write up,, and pictures

the swapp was done in winter 2006-2007..

but i get so many pm and email about info that i think the best solution FOR ALL is to do a good detailed thread with pictures and how we did it,, and how there is another possible way,, as some other have done it

regards

Added some engine specs. It's proved useful to me in the past.

Yoshi,

Any idea what I would be looking at in order to swap an OBD-II motor to OBD-I? I've got a guy local that was two complete m52b28 from a 1997 528i which are OBD-II. Do I really just need the intake mani and wiring harness from a m50 or something? Or do all the sensors need to to come with?

Also, is it ONLY the e34 pan that can be used? What about the e39 528i pan?

Thanks!

Matt

all bolts line up
you also need the a4 MC and the 2 brake lines going to it braised to the old lines. the shaft needs to be shortened a few threads and the old piece tapped out to fit the 14mm plunger bolt
you dont need a remote res but it would help
i think i have almost 2 inches of clearence with it! will post pics as soon as i can find them (damn new hard drive)
