My Ride: 325xit 5spd, E39 M5
So I'm halfway thru my m54b30 swap into my 325xit.

So installing an m54b30 into my sport package manual wagon.... simple right? Bought an m54b30 from a 330i, swapped the pan and put it all together... but while it's apart I decided to replace all the seals, all the hoses, the CCV, the clutch. The llittle things add up fast. $1500 worth of maintenance items.

So cost of motor + all the new parts = $$$$$

It started snowing here in Montreal and my 325xit is in pieces... 200miles away.


Lost of work and not feeling like working on the car


So basicaly this is a swap blues support thread.
