E36 Transmission Conversion

First Timer here...thanks in advance for my ignorence/and or spelling!

Ok, so I got a great deal on a '93 325i (E36). As of course with all good deals, there's always a catch, in this case it's the automatic transmission which is starting to show it's age. I'm really thinking hard about swapping out to a 5 speed manual, but want to get as much infomation as I can before I make the commitment.

Looking for any advice on how to proceed if anyone has already done this type of thing, also I'm looking to eventually swap out the M50 for a MPower Engine down the road as well. Just want to make sure that I get everything straight...any advice/help most welcome!

wasup and welcome , dont worry about spelling and no such thing as ignorance....

if i were you , i would wait to do the swap and get an engine and tranny together. it will save you time and labour. ive done the M3 swap myself, its a great mod, as for the 5 speed conversion, there have been a few members who have done it. and will be able to give you some guidance on it.

you can also try doing a search and see if you come up with any relivant info.


good luck and welcome to bimmerwerkz.
