Late model e30 3.5 swap in Cali.

Hello bummer world! I've got an m50 swapped 90 e30 and with as much fun as I'm having I'm seriously kicking around the 3.5 idea. There's the German forum that has info on it. Any one on here have any personal experience with this particular swap? It looks like a fun swap but only with a position 3 mounted motor. Concerns and suggestions are VERY welcome

Not very common but it has been done. Biggest thing is the motor mounts will most likely require custom fab to sit properly. And you will need to reiforce the front subframe because of the added wieght.
