Nice that you did it by yourself! I'm just collecting information for my future swap. Currently have a very nice 6cyl swap setup that is in my track car, but I'll upgrade to an s54 or euro S50B30 in the near future.

Well. I did all by myself, what im telling you is take your time, i reused a lot of the stock wiring since im using the z3m s54 cluster. I needed some can bus wires from the dme to the cluster, i reused the ones from the engine temp. Reuse your engine mounting brackets. A good tip on using stock e46 m3 flywheel and pressure plate, use a 330i clutch disc. Any more info you might need let me know

I meant to ask why you stayed with the Getrag 240 transmission? They are light duty. Also how did you fit a S54 clutch in it? I had trouble fitting a M52 clutch in mine.

Im using the getrag 240 because it is what i have. No issues at all. Other thing is i dont do burnouts. Dont get me wrong i drive it like i stole it from time to time but i take care of it. I reused the starter since the flywheel share the same teeth pattern as the stock ti's transmission. Im using the e46 m3 flywheel and pressure plate BUT im using a 330i e46 clutch disc. The input shaft on the getrag 240 is smaller than the 6speed e46 gearbox. It just fit. I had to modify the slave push rod. Make it a few mm smaller but other than that is straight foward.

Excellent! Did you rebuild or modify the getrag in any way? How sticky are your tires and what size.

Nice, looks a lot like my last swap, I miss that S54 ITB percussion. Clean swap man, looks great with those OE wheels!
