Garagistic M6X Swap Guide - Introduction

Note from Author:

My name is Frank Macaluso. I’ve worked in the aerospace industry as a systems engineer since 2005. Personally, I’ve been involved with E30’s since 1999 and have owned 6 E30’s, 1 E34, and 1 E36 to date. I’m a self-educated shady-tree mechanic who has primarily learned by research and trial/error. I have turned every wrench throughout 2 M60 swaps which I’ve documented in an alternate, yet similar write-up. My recently performed M60 engine swap is getting more and more popular as time goes by. Finally, the M60 swap is revered due to its power output, beautiful sound, easy access to parts, impressive low-end torque, comparable price, and general support information on the internet.
