  1. Here's a link to their site. https://www.born2drift.co.uk/shop/bmw/bmw-e30/rear-axle-shaft-adapters-bmw-e30/ I do not recall if I had to use e36 output flanges or not. Regardless, they held up very well. The inner cv is much larger.
  2. Im currently in the process of getting all the parts together. Decided to paint the block white. I'll be going NA, power goal of 350whp with cams/intake/pulleys/exhaust/tune. I went with megan racing headers and a vac single collector. I'll be running AC through a CAN module. Pusher and puller fan setup. Dual sump pan. ZHP rack, born2drift axle adapters, garagistic secondary diff mount. I'll post more as I go.
  3. Are you OBD1 or OBD2? It is set up for OBD1 and megasquirt or a 413 dme. It can work with OBD2, using an m50 valve cover and intake manifold. Definitely want a tune as well.
  4. I've decided to put the s54 in the red e30 and sell the entire powertrain. I love e30s 😁. I am at a standstill until the new piston rings come in from the UK. The ACL bearings came today, woohoo!
  5. Yes, I bought it from a guy in Poland and color matched it, brilliantrot.
  6. I'll check it out. The m54 transplant has some similarities.
  7. Thank you, Brian, for the information. The more I think about it, the s54 is better suited for an e36 chasis. The e30 has a few drawbacks, such as engine bay space, tire sizing, and rear axle. I may sell the blue e30 and supercharger kit, in favor of keeping my red e30 na and finding a clean m3 shell. There was an avus blue e36 m3 shell on marketplace not too long ago I missed out on. I need to work on my picture taking skillz, lol.
  8. So I've been busy doing some swapping the last couple years and thought I should share what I've been up to. I currently have 2 e30s, red s52 supercharged and blue m50nv. I picked up an s54 with a 420g(6speed) that has a hole in the block. The head and cylinder are destroyed from what looks like a piston going through an industrial ninja mixer. The flywheel was a bonus, lightweight with new sachs clutch kit. I found a good cylinder head. I also picked up a mystery block that supposedly had 80k miles on it. Sure enough after disassembly, it looks as though it did. I cleaned everything up and am currently waiting for some new rings and rod bearings. My goal is to sell the s52, zf310(lightweight flywheel, act clutch)supercharger kit, and mspnp to swap in an s54 turbo. FS thread soon. For the s54, I'm going to use arp head studs and the oe mls gasket. The rod bearings are ACL. I'll be opening up the ring gap a little bit as well. Any input is great. I'm deciding what kit or parts to use for this build, as well as a hp goal. Definitely want to go turbo, more tq.
