Default Just bought a ti with a swapped motor

Good morning, I'm Matt and I'm new to this forum.

My brother owns a BMW shop in Phoenix and he regularly builds unique Bimmers. I just received a 1996 318ti with a 2.8L engine. He purchased the car a few months ago without a motor and found a wrecked 328 for the donor parts. It's a pretty sweet ride.

I look forward to learning more on the forums!

Welcome!

I have a 1995 with a 2.8L M52 as well. If you have any questions hopefully I can help.

Thanks! I still need to source a 188mm diff. Did you swap the rear end in your ti?

Not yet. I've been fairly happy with how it performs with the stock ti diff so far. It's on the list though.

I have a 188 410LSD. You can use your stock axles if you use the small case flanges. You should get the correct 6cyl axles though
