(Thread Starter)
Has any one transplanted a V8 engine from a 5 series into a E36 ?

Is it a cost effective move , or is it alot of work

What sort of mod's need to be done ?

Any info would be helpful

not exactly true. You have to have alpina VINs that match the B8 E36 vins.

all you need are some exhaust parts, a wiring harness/ecu and engine brackets.

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

Look at this website ( http://www.sebastiaanvanbaarsen.com/v8.htm ). Frank de Jonge (he's a member here) can tell you more about this e39 M5 swap! Another Dutch member here ( Boost ) did the same with the e34 M5 engine.
