I am looking to swap an engine for a 1994 318ic (current one has a lot of miles 200k and want to swap for a lower mile engine and tranny) and have a few questions.
Besides the engine itself and the tranny, do I need to get the ECU for the engine I am putting in and the odometer or can I keep the same one? I would be swapping the same year engine and one from a 318i. Would it matter if it came from a non 318i convertible?
I know this sounds like a nOOb question, but I searched the forums and could not find the anwser.
Lastly, would it be better to rebuild my current engine/tranny and if so, what is the cost (roughly) to do that at an indy bmw shop (no stealer for me).
Thanks for your anticipated responses. From the many posts I have read, there are some really smart people here who know more that I think I will ever know about BMW's.
