    Sump Swap

    Thanks for reply so the oil pickup tube that runs to the sump can be changed to fit a front sump that is all i wanted to know doesnt this let you use your E34 Engine subframe to fit a engine swap no need messing with welders to fit m52 engine into a e34 with m50 engine.

    Sump Swap

    Hi just asking how this works take the m52 engine with a m50 sump is the sump on the back of the engine on a m52 if so the oil pick will be back there too so how do you move oil pickup to front if fitting a m50 sump to a m52 engine. thanks

    Turning a e34 into a e39

    Whats normal about the top half of dash on e34 you dont get a passenger airbag on the dash like on that one so its definelitly a modded e39 dash if he didnt do so many mods it might be ok the plus he has with the engine is he gets full obd2 scanning instead of ads.

    Turning a e34 into a e39

    sorry your right . I just wanted to know was it possible fit the e39 rack to replace the box in e34 sort out the play we all have to deal with in our cars.

    Turning a e34 into a e39

    Pity he didnt show the steering box to show did he swap it for the e39 or have to do some mod for the exhaust to fit.

    Turning a e34 into a e39

    Its definitely a e39 dash because you wouldnt get the e34 speedo clocks to fit in a e39 dash maybe he just got a bit of it cut-out to fit that screen.

    Turning a e34 into a e39
