E30 m60 swap kit

The m6x e30 swap kit.

Introducing the Garagistic LLC M6X swap kit. This is the complete kit to make your e30 a threat to moderns. Allows the bolt up of a few of BMWs mighty V8s found in 540s 740s X5s and M5s. If you speak BMW code, that translates into m60, m62, s60, and s62. No hacking of the car is needed (completely reversible). Some components will also work for e36 bmw v8 conversions.

Please keep in mind the custom nature of these parts. Please allow about 2 week for delivery. Available in both steel and aluminum! To be used with ,e28 m5, e34 or e38 motor mounts. X5 or milled down oil housings are required.

Each item may be purchased separately if desired (or as complete kit).

E30 M6x mounts

Allows the bolt up of bmw m60, m62, s60, s62 v8s into the e30 chassis. Factory oil pan may be used. Subframe spacers included in every kit. Use of subframe spacers is optional. The conversion will work without them. However, they keep the drive line straighter.

E30 boosterless brake setup

The brake booster relocation is the hardest part of the v8 into e30 swap. The factory booster is in the way. Some choose to use e32/e34 booster setup and relocate behind the headlight. This is costly, requires lots of custom work, clutters engine bay, and requires the removal or relocation of the complete abs setup including brake lines. With this boosterless brake setup bracket, swap time is shorter, and swap is cleaner. Our boosterless brake bracket allows you to use Wilwood or Tilton pedals/master cylinders. Everything is relocated tightly and neatly under the dash in the factory pedal area. When the conversion is done, its all hidden! Simply mount the reservoirs in your engine bay and that's the only give away. We recommend using masters with 5/8" bore front and rear. These are the most compact masters and the smaller bore means that effort will be bearable. General rule of thumb: Bigger bores: Minimal pedal travel/stiffer pedal/higher pedal effort. Smaller bores: Long pedal travel/softer pedal/less pedal effort. All grade 8 hardware included. Pedals/master cylinders are not included and must be bought.

6 speed transmissions extension brackets

When swapping in a bmw 6 speed transmission, the additional length of the transmission means you cannot use your factory transmission brace. You will need to "extend it". To do this, you need these pre-cut trans bracket extension brackets. Simply weld them onto your factory brace and you 6 speed is mounted!

Please note that this extension is not required when doing the 5 speed. The factory trans brace will work as is.

E30 V8 rpm module

Your factory RPM gauge will not be accurate when you do the conversion.  The DME signal must be modified and a 4 cyl BMW coding chip must be used. We offer a "RPM signal modifier" or as we call it, a RPM module. Simply wire it inline and your RPM gauge will be accurate. Needed for any v8 swap in an e30.
