BMW M6X V8 E30 AND E36 CONVERSION MOUNTS
It's here! Our M6X motor swap conversions for your M60/M62 swap into your E30 or E36! These motor mounts allow you to put BMWs M6X series V8 into your E30 or E36. That means the V8 from your E34 540i, E32 740i, E39 530,540, or M5. No hacking of the car is needed (completely reversible). E36 conversions will require a custom oil pan.
Subframe spacers come with every kit, however, they are actually optional in the conversion. The spacers will lower the subframe to keep the drive-line straighter and giving more under-hood clearance for the BMW plastic covers as well as if you decide to use the E32/E34 radiator reservoir. We recommend using X5 headers in the E30 conversions. For more tips and the whole conversion write-up. Click here for more details on the M60/S62 swap.
We fully endorse the MACALENT LLC swap guide. This guide is extremely detailed! It gets down into the details, part numbers, order of items, and tons more! It goes into detail on the swap so that any shade-tree mechanic can do this swap in less than 1 month with a $1000 investment (assuming they have the car and drive-train already acquired). This is the best investment you can do before starting the swap. Click here to buy the manual. Please keep in mind the custom nature of these parts. Please allow about 2 weeks for delivery.
Please note: X5 or milled down oil housings are required.

Other M6X Swap Parts:
Boosterless Brake Setup
The brake booster relocation is the hardest part of swapping a V8 into an E30. 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, clusters engine bay, and requires the removal or relocation of the complete abs setup including brake lines.
If you also purchase 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, it's all hidden! Simply mount the reservoirs in your engine bay and that's the only give away. We recommend using masters with a 5/8" bore front and rear. These are the most compact masters and the smaller bore means that effort will be bearable. The general rule of thumb: Bigger bores: Minimal pedal travel/stiffer pedal/higher pedal effort (5/8 Brake Masters should only be used with aftermarket BBK setups such as Willwood 6 pot calipers or Tilton calipers). 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 Transmission 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!
