to AlpineWhiteE46 - well ive seen many people done that, i just want to make sure it will be bolt on mod, and doesnt require any tough job with fabrications to my car. Well my friend burnt my gear box, because when i got home the drive wont work properly but the reverse is fine, then i changed the transmission oil, all the oil were burnt badly, changed it (but didnt fix the problem) - also took it to bmw dealer for check up charged me 100 dollars to tell me whats wrong, told me to change gear box that cost 4000 only for rebuilt gearbox alone excluding labor.
to bad man working - what you said was right there was insufficient oil in the gear box i suppose, but it did burn the gear box and there was terrible gear slip. So you are saying its ok that i fit a 1995 e36 m3 engine with manual transmission into a 1994 e36 325i automatic without any fabrications? just a bolt on sort of thing? Well i will take care of those other stuffs later like the suspension and the brakes. THANK YOU VERY VERY VERY MUCH!!! btw how much would someone charge in doing such a swap?
to xsperf - im not too sure what its called.
