View Full Version : Front axle support dimensions needed

09-20-2005, 06:46 AM
Could someone please take a measurement or two for me? I have a project car using an S50B30 engine from a '95 M3. Rather than totally fabricating a homemade way to mount it to an old 2002 front axle support, I wanted to get a rough idea if a correct front axle support from an e36 with an M50/S50 would fit and then I would just need to worry about getting it bolted in correctly.

For anyone with no engine in their car, I would like the following measurements please: Width of the front axle support; width from bolt holt hole to bolt hole on each end. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Also, where exactly to the engine mounts bolt to the front axle support?
