E30 know it all's, now is the time!

Does anyone know the measurements of the engine bay of an e30 325is? The year is 1987. Possibly considering a side project, but want to make sure I've got everything I need before jumping into it and the seller is out of town for a week. Help a fanatic out!
Thanks guys

What are you trying to fit? There aren't many motors that haven't been shoe horned into e30s already. Everything from e52s to s54 with smg, to LS1s.

My Ride: AW facelift 325i
We have an LS1 in pretty good condition from when my Dad and I restored our 69 Camaro, so I was just throwing ideas around and heard it COULD fit with some tinkering, so I figured I'd ask the pros here. Still very up in the air on everything though. I'm wondering whether I should spend the money on a NEW project when my e46 is definitely still a project. I'm thinking more on the side of the e46... Thanks for the help

I actually had even seen a e30 with an LS1 in it before on bimmerforum and youtube which is where I got the idea from, but I was hoping someone on here would be able to help me figure out how smart it is to get involved in. I'd really be paying for the car if I were to get into this seeing how we have a body shop and a friend with an engine shop just 30 feet away that let us use it for the Camaro, so hopefully this COULD happen...
