Tried searching but did'nt come up with anything... Can I install a 98 M44 engine in a 95 ODB1 M42 car and use the ODB1 harness/ecu/ect..? I have a 95 318ti (5spd) with a blown engine and I also have a wrecked 98 318ti (auto) with good low mileage running gear. Just wondering the best way to approach the swap. Thanks!

Everything is pretty much the same except for the ignition coil, the block and the MAF. The block may actually be the same as well, but it probably just has a larger bore size. I'm not sure if you can just swap the MAF to AFM then just use the OBD 1 computer. Remember that the M44 is 1.9L whereas the M42 is 1.8L. You may need some custom tuning to resolve this issue. I would just swap the blocks and then use all the original undamaged M42 parts with the M44 block. Things should work out nicely.
