There would take some serious cubic inch alterations. I have to go guys...I would love to literally show you "HOW MY SETUP" literally is.

No disrespect to any of you guys...I'll be back later. Tomorrow during the day, I'll try to get some pics.
Where'd ya go brotha?! You're avatar disappeared, you we're online at around 8am this morning...we're still waiting.

God, why didn't I think of that before?!

Opinion...great idea, do it.
Suggestions...less talk, more action. Remember, BMW stands for Bring My Wallet. What an awesome idea. Let us know how it works out.

m5james, I have a request, I see on your signature that you installed an electric fan on your 7. I'd like to do the same, but I'm not sure where the best place is to mount the temp sensor. Could you provide me with the details of your setup? I was thinking of using one of the universal wiring kits, and just pulling an s-blade fan off of a towncar.

Considering the notorious overheating issues with these cars, I just wired mine to be constant so that it comes on with the ignition. Honestly, it's not loud at all and it's just a bit more piece of mind for me.

I just thought it was a funny question. Not only does it have nothing to do with this thread, but if you're actually GOING to do it (not likely), you've asked in the wrong place. Search or make your own thread, but this thread already has a topic. It's an idea and dream that uneducated newbies like yourself ask all the time...for once I'd like to see someone **** or get off the pot. I gave you the exact answer your question deserved. If your pockets are deep enough, then you wouldn't be asking...you'd be doing it instead. It'd be easier to drop in an LSx engine. Oh, and for the record, I can think of ONE 740iL that has the S62 engine, and even then it's a show car, so god only knows how it actually drives and/or runs when driven more than 5mph from the trailer to showroom.

PS - Before you fire off telling how much of an asshole I am, I already know. My answers are the truth so prove us wrong by doing it, otherwise there is nothing else to say. Period.
