It all depends how comfortable you are wrenching on your car really


A 5 speed swap would need :

Time
Patience
5 Speed trans
Differential (i think or else your revs would be crazy high)
Master cylinder (Clutch and Brake pedal)
Driveshaft
Flywheel
Clutch kit

theres probably more but thats all i could think of right now Its deff doable though


The classified would be the best place to get some parts and whatever that could be shipped is a good option too (unless you dont mind paying for shipping and handling for big heavy parts)

Pelicanparts.com is a good site for OEM parts

Check the sponsor sticky has almost every site you could find parts at

Chip (miles_trail) is selling a complete 5 speed swap package for a great price.

Thanks guys for the help!!
And also is there anything else that is major i should look over and what suspension should i look into?
Your choice of suspension depends entirely on what you plan to use the car for.
This car will be my daily im building a 240 hatch with a 350 stroked for the track
For street driving, I'd go with H&R Sport springs and Koni STR.T shocks/struts.
Ok I've gotta see what a $125 BMW E36 looks like... Pictures soonish???
yeah ill put pics up soon nothing was really wrong with it just small things and now the tranny.
I have the tranny and all the assorted bite to install it, you would just need to supply the stuff that wears out (clutch kit, think, mounts etc).
