According to the all-to-brief conversation that I had with him... the e36 transmissions fit the S14 engine (and the M20 too).

that means the 6-speed from an e36 will fit. does the 6-speed from the 5-series fit? i dunno. wish i'd asked.

bekker's or zionsville might know the answer to that question.

So where do you get a 6-speed from an E36 in the US? The E36 guys recommend against the 6-spd, especially the turbocharged folks, apparently the 5-spd is more robust.

I'm not sure if you're also aware, there's a large difference in weight between a 4 spd (reason the 2002's are wonderful, light weight) and a VERY heavy Getrag 265 5-spd. Try lifting one vs the other, very noticeable.
