I am thinking about dropping a s52 engine and trans into an e30 two door. I was also thinking about moving th emotor mounts back a couple of inches. Is there any way to compensate for the hole that I would have to cut into the fire wall? :banghead
i really dont think that will make a huge difference in weight distribution. so are you saying now that your gonna stick with the M20 instead of the S52? i really think stroking the M20 to 3L's would be the best idea for track/street car. you start with a fresh engine, excellent power, and will be less costly to install over a M50Originally posted by tri2fiveis@Oct 6 2003, 03:58 PM
I'm really asking if there is a way to re-support the car if I cut into the fire wall. I'm not really looking to put anything else in there. Esspecialy an American V-8. I don't see the big point of putting all that weight in the front of my car. Why don't I just buy a v-12 and stick it in there?
