    What have you done on your E34 Today

    Does the front of the e34 strip away this much or did you use a angle grinder as i have to do the same as you with a engine swap . its easier bring engine & gearbox out this way than try to fish it out overhead.

    M57 diesel in an e34 has it been done?

    I wanted to do the same it works only going from old to new diesel & petrol as they have different engine mounts . so you would have to do some serious welding to go from petrol to diesel. Hope this helps what ever you do.

    Convert a e34 to a e39

    I found another guy on another website that did this but he was going from diesel to diesel where i was going from petrol to diesel so it seems engine mounts would get me as the are different mounts on the diesel block . So if i went this way i would have to cut the mounts from doner car & weld into mine which would be a bit of a job getting them in the right place.I havent given up though might try the 2.5 petrol was the 2.5i different in the 523 e39 than the 525i e39 Might be of help to someone in the future.

    chip tunning tds

    The chips are suppose to change the power band to kick in much early so you don't get the lag from take off as regards blowing the engine up I would suspect that is all down to how they are driven. I don't drive hard & only want to get rid of the lag from take off.
