Anything is possible. You will need the engine, transmission, differential, engine electrics. I would guess a crashed entire donor car would be the best way to go. You will have to fab mounts and brackets for everything, nothing about it is a bolt in.

Please do it!..

many years ago I attemped an e30 325is sedan s54/ SMG swap.. In the end the computers said no.( For Me)

so many systems for DSC/ABS/EWS/SRS/...ECT ... ECT so many things the computer wanted to see to run let alone allow the SMG to function..

I did not have near the ability to make the software cooperate with the new chassis.. Sucks you have to do away with all the features too..

With a manual you basically set it to just run..

This was a long time ago when e46 was still in production and all this was still new..

believe a modified euro s52 harness got it to run... Finicky!
