Exclamation Motor swapping compatability...

My 84 bmw 318i e30 1.8L threw a rod on me last night and now I need to find a new motor but need to know what all is compatable with my current set up to make a swap out as fast easy and chep as possible.

Jack Dabsy will become famous soon enough
2.5ltr M20 or M50 motor 'n box would be ideal for your E30... Make sure the ECU's are included.
Few mods maybe required but all mount positions are already there !!

Eso es todo!
