very good!

I just read through this thread for thr first time. Fantastic source of knowledge, especially concerning interchangability between models. I thank everyone who has contributed to it over the last three years.

Hey I am currently doing this swap myself but I ran into some complications with fitment of some parts. Can you please specify which alternator, intake manifold/injectors(3.0 is bigger), and power steering and oil dipstick did you use. Everything bolts right up except for those parts. Any help will be appreciated.

I have a 2000 323 e46

This question is for mujjuman but your pm inbox is full! So hopefully you get the email notification and can get back to me!

So did you run into any issues running the b30 motor with a b25 DME? And I'm toying with the idea of doing the b30 swap but I don't know if a used motor I will purchase will include the manifold, TB and MAF, so if that's the case, then I will have to use the components from my motor.

What did you use on your setup if you dont mind me asking?

Thanks again mujjuman!
