hey on that 320i your working on, what transmission are you using (stock 320i or m3 version) and what do you do about the driveshaft, computer, etc. thaks for your helpful info.

I'm using the 83 320 (two piece tranny) I'll be
going club racing with it so, don't know yet if
it will hold up, but I have the M3 tranny if I
need it. The thing about the M3 tranny is it is
much heavier and you will need to change the
length of the drive shaft & use a flange that will
fit the M3 tranny flex disc and do something with
the shifter linkage. The easiest thing to do is
have the sensor location welded to the 320 tranny.
You will need a bell housing from a tranny that
has those sensor locations. I found a 528e in a
junkyard that had the detachable bell housing and
picked it up for that use. Don't know the exact
year, but it's the same tranny used in the M3.
