I used to have a ' 89 325i auto, but i sold it off last year to buy a better looking and slightly faster '87 325e manual. I have been driving around in the 325e for about a year now and a nice 325i engine has been more or less given to me. I have decided to take out the eta and put in the 'i' engine.
I want to make sure I have all my parts before I start. The things that I have or will be getting shortly are:
m20B25 engine w/ intake manifold, exhaust manifold, injectors, air flow meter, cold start valve, o2 sensor, 325i ecu, oil cooler
325i exhaust system
325i tach face
new belts, hoses, fuel lines, tensioner, water pump, plugs, oil pan seal, valve cover seal,
i am not sure about my clutch or flywheel . . . i think i read that i need a 325i flywheel and clutch to match the engine. (Would I be better of grabbing a 325i tranny?
Would it be smart to do the guibo now too?
New engine and tranny mounts?
What seals and gaskets will I be needing?
Any idea how well the wiring harnesses will match up?
As for equipment I have jacks, jackstand, an overhead crane for a hoist, all the tools I ought to need, and some I won't.
Any tips are welcome on this project.
