Alright so anyone that has been keeping up with my threads once in a while about the engine swap on a 1990 325Ci knows that its been in the shop for a while getting "tuned up"


heres my situation. yesterday I was sitting at home and I thought wow it doesnt even seem like I have a bmw anymore....


the last problem the car had was it slipped out of gear when driving away from the shop last time. its an auto tranny i dont know whats wrong with it but they said that the pump inside the transmission was failing. because there was no fluid being pumped around. I went to the shop and told them i wanted my car back working or not and asked them what they had done on it since I was there last. they said "nothing". I am taking the car home now and im going to do a auto to manual swap. Ive been quoted 800 dollars for everything from a local parts house does that seem reasonable. Or is there any chance i could do something to this auto that is in there to get it to run and then i can drive my car thats all i want right now is to drive it.

thanks ahead of time for any help

-Casey

I REALLY hope u know what your getting yourself into with a swap like that. Putting a manual in an auto is a lot of work. You'll probably have to start by figured out where to mount everything, then break out a torch and other assorted goodies, 'cuz while i've never done one on a bimmer, i have on chevys, fords, and one mazda(read, many, many swear words), and they were a bitch!

you dont actually need to weld/cut anything.. e30 tranny swaps are pretty direct, just takes a long time to swap everything out.
