question on manual swap

Hi just had a question if anyone knows if a getrag 260 5sp transmission would mate to a m52 2.5. I have been searching for a couple of days now and have found that people have had success with the 260 to m50 and etc but no definite with the m52. The reason I ask, I recently bought a e30 for a ls1 swap I'm starting and was given the 260 Trans with it. I have an auto e46 and the no reverse problem. So was hoping I could use the extra 5sp. The transmission is in good shape and won't be needing it with the e30. Sorry if this a retarded question. Thanks

yes the G260 will bolt to the M54 engine

the clutch will be interesting combo but you can use a e46 complete dual mass clutch from any 5 speed.
slave cylinder match to the g260 and same for pilot bearing and throw out bearing/clutch fork/pivot pin

alternatively the complete G260 clutch setup with flywheel and m20 starter will bolt to the M54 engine.

driveshaft the e46 330i 5 speed will mate if you change the g260 triangle to a e28/eta large unit

final drive for the G260 is a 3,73 factory so anything from 3,64-4,10 range should work ok for street use. 5th in the 260 is ~ 0.83 overdrive
