diff covers are pretty comon swaps beacuse i believe they are all the same size.

not sure on the m5 pan, never heard of it

if your gonna use the MAF from a 5, make sure its a 540. or a 740 in that case.

540 MAF, M coupe diff cover, not sure about the oil pan though, do M5's come with an OEM oil cooler or something? Not sure what oil related part besides a cooler could help.

how would a motor that is a 6 cylinder fit an oilpan from an 8 cylinder? Wouldn't they be a different size?

its a larger MAF then the 6 cylinder engines and so larger MAF means less restriction, means more air in the engine means more power... (needs tuning though...)
