1991 BMW E30 318is M52 B28 Swap

This Alpine White E30 had a M42 engine with low compression so the owner decided to take this opportunity to make a big upgrade! For this build, we swapped in a M52B28 from an E36 and took care of several other odds and ends along the way.

With over 150 hours invested. This project represents one of the best formulas that can be had for a street E30 chassis.

Build List:
- M52B28 with 24v Modifications
- TCE Oil Pump Safety Nut
- Getrag 240 Transmission
- Modified M20 Flywheel
- Full Koni Suspension
- Custom Driveshaft
- 3.73 LSD Conversion
