Post S54 swap

finally getting down to the important questions.....

what mods to the wiring harness would be fully necessary for this swap to work.......if i got the harness in perfect condition with the ews and dme?? nothing damaged!

cuz all the swaps that i see on here there cutting the harness to connect it to another harness or something like that?

S54 engine DME EWS HARNESS= PLUG AND PLAY AS FAR AS WIRING GOES RIGHT?

Should be there. Only a handful of members did the swap so do exactly what they did.

All the information can be found on this forum if you search. The only hard parts are the wiring harness modifications and the programming, which are closely kept secrets by the people that have done the swap because of how much research is required.

Solidjake is trying to tell you that if you read the whole post you will find the answer to your question in some detail. They explain what they splice into and why. Just read it.

It's easier to swap it into the coupe because you don't need to worry about the rear doors. Just use as much from the M3 as possible.
