You can fit an engine in coupe/sedan trunk. Pull spare tire, remove deck lid, put motor in and then put the decklid back on.

Yeah the GF was pretty good for hauling


I'm driving my brothers '95 530i right now, pretty sweet ride. Found some control arms from a part out so I'll grab those this weekend, I'm really hoping new wheels and control arms will make it drivable. We shall see. I was planning on rebuilding my 99 EJ25D block with STI stuff for silver, but it may go in the black one instead.

I guess my GM is on the back burner again.

Some pics of the carnage.





On the bright side, everything went back together pretty easily and she drives straight and smooth! Just needs more bodywork now. I found a WRX being parted out somewhat locally, and got a good deal on the control arms and the shifter trim. Gonna go back for a few more things; drivers door, maybe windshield wiper motor, and definitely the crossmember.


Oh and some things showed up.




Anyone thing that one big end is a little heavy? Should I ask my machinist if he can balance them further?

Default 5MT swap completed!

Started at 4pm on Saturday, had it mostly back together last night around 930, and completed a quick test drive to the corner and back. Let me tell ya, when you're used to turning the wheel and hitting the gas only to plow straight ahead, it's SO NICE to blip it and have the ass immediately step out!

This morning I replaced the trans fluid and did some of the wiring, just enough to get it to drive to work. Main issue right now is that I forgot to swap the VSS to the new trans, which has a 2 wire sensor. Without the speed signal my ecu is in limp mode and won't rev past 4.5k.

Here's some random pics I snapped while I was scrambling, let's start with my favorite:

Nice to see that ugly auto shifter gone, never to darken my console again.


Here we have the reason for keeping spare parts. I'm surprised it actually came out.


Honestly thought I was going to lose it trying to get around those trans cooler lines to loosen the bell housing bolts. Slowest part of the job, two bolts and a nut took 2 hours to remove! Should chopped the lines at the start.


Finally the nightmare is over. Installing the manual was a freakin' breeze! I need to tweak one exhaust hanger that intersects the new crossmember slightly, that's it.


Found the reason my radiator fans were randomly cycling while the car was off. Clearly a result of a tire battering the wheel well. Nothing was broken so I just taped em up individually then wrapped em up together and shoved em back up there.

I'm extremely pleased with the response and control my car now has, and the connection to the vehicle... Until now it felt like I was driving someone else's car.

Side note, anyone know if I can just add a stronger weaker spring to the clutch pedal? These hydraulic units are so light, after driving the 'HD stage 2' in my coupe I have trouble letting the clutch out.
