Hi everyone, I have some problem with my engine: something had wrecked in block and now it`s completely damaged and must be replaced, so I have 2 choises: to put in same engine M70 or to put M73 from 750 E38. So I would like to know if th`s possible because of wires, connectors or else.
And other question. Rear axle. I`d like to change ratio from 3.15 to 4.1 or 3.73. But at service I was informed that the change "as is" is impossible, if anyone knows how can I cange ratio, please let me know.
For contacts ICQ 123408276 - I`m sure will find topics to talk...
hello and welcome to the forums. what is the budget your willing to spend? is it not possible to rebuilt the engine? and if your gonna replace the whole engine go with the m73 but yes you will have to change quite a few other things.

Engine can be rebuild if I`ll change the block, but is it for a long time? hm....
For replacing engine I hope to spend about 2 or 3K: Engine costs 2k max, and I don`t know how much will be other replacements cost?
Also I have about 1.5 k to spend on additional mods,
Now I have:
- Cold Air Intake K&N
- Perfomance Chip
- Mainford from 850 CSi
- 2xRemus DTM double exhaust
- Koni Ammo
- Eibach (could be wrong writing, sorry) springs
- M wheels from M5 2002
- Recaro Seats
so what you will recomend me, i thought about nitrous, but actulally I`m afraid of geagbox... Supercharger... hmmm.... 15k I`m not ready to spend
