My Ride: e46 335ci
BMW e46 335ci N54 engine

Hello to eweryone,my name is Max Im from Latvia,reading a lot your forum,so decided to tell about my project.
I owned a car since 06,car was bought fully stock and since then many modifications were made.From the factory it was 328 and tuning was started from suspension ,I tried many different coil overs from FK too bilstein,but every set of them didnt lived long, now when the engine swap will be done Im going to buy Tein. Diff was replased with M3 diff with subframe and stabilisator bar(front bar also from m3)From the start it was oem 5 gear gearbox,but with m3 diff 5th gear was to short,so gearbox was replased with e60 525i 6-gearbox.While the car was 2.8 I have swaped there exhaust manifold from e36 M3 (uk version) and stright exhaust from stainles,used magnaflow muflers. A year ago I was lucky to by an almoust complete N54 engine in Lithuania ,but it was necesary to buy a pile of new parts because these guys in Lithuania cuted al wires and pipesalso I have bought all set of engine wires,ecu,cas key etc.From the start it looked easy to install this engine mechanicly because from the first look engines are similar,but from the second they are not First problem were with engine mounts,e46 engine mounts are in the middle of the engine block but e92 have them in the back.Drivers side engine mount is half custom and half e39 530d,right side is oem rewelded,but it was necesary to customize subframe too ,because if mount would be in the middle of turbos,it would not be enough place to make normal size downpipes.Gearbox fitted perfectly,clutch kit is oem from 335,flywheel is custom cnc made. Gearshaft is from 320d 2004.From the start I decided to make maximum power from n54 ,so made 76mm downpipes and custom made intercooler,intake will be AFE double cone. Now the process is as far as seen on pictures ,updates will be soon!
