Sounds like you should start with the electrical system; fuses, battery and ground connections, etc. Then I'd clean up the IAC and MAF sensor and throttle body. Look for vacuum leaks. Which e34 motor? You might want to post or search in their forum. Transplants always have the same problem; which set of specs to use? If it's well documented you'll likely figure it out. If it's not, there will be some guessing involved. good luck.
