I just bought a M20 motor from a 93 BMW 325 convertible. The engine mounts for my 1990 E34 will not fit on the block. will this motor fit in my E34?

i've heard that to put one of those in an e30 you need to change to an e34 oil pan maybe you have to do that too for the e34, put in your oil pan.:dunno: have you tried some e21 mounts?

yeah I changed the pan. My problem is the block of the motor only has holes to mount brackets for an e30. There are no holes for the e34 brackets.

Anything can be done with some work. You will probably just need to fab up some mounts for it.
