Hi guys

need some advice and input...I just totalled my 85 //M635
and have a heap of twisted metal in driveway. I am toying with transplanting the 24v 6 cyl euro 310hp powerplant into
my 89 e34 535ia, with dinan stage 2 suspension....

any inputs? or ideas?

Will your transmission be happing spinning at 7000rpm? Plus you will probably need to lower the diff ratio to make the most of the twin cam.

Regards
Quentin

Ps BMW did make 100 "M7's" A friend bought a 7 series auto with the M5 engine ex Hong Kong
