i dont care about the political, or environmental bs : man wants to drop a running e38 m50 in to a running e39 chasis


you guys should be able to pull this together over the internet for this boy..

start rattleing off what you know he is going to need to make that m50 run,

thats the early version of ews, and pretty easy to by pass, He is going to need service manuals from both cars, because he is going to need the pin out data,

come on guys..

i dont mean to sound sarcastic of condescending, i think this is a unrealistic goal, *could i do it? yes in a few days at best. Do i think you should do it? NOT at ALL.. the simple fact that your even asking can it be done.. makes be question can you do it...


so where do you want to go with this? are you committed? do you have money? your friend who can weld... doesn't count or hold any weight in this conversation .. CAN You do it? yes... should you?


should you?

After reading up on Euro 3 vs. Euro 4. Would you not run into the same problem with your "540"? It would be running an engine that would not hold up to the emissions requirements in Serbia? Or do they not actually do the emissions test?

Would selling the car on the market that it's currently registered not be an option? There are turbo charger kits for M52 that may be an easier route...
