S54 Swap Sedan Video Series

Hey guys, i am in the process of swapping an s54 into my 1999 328i sedan, and i
am documenting it all through videos on youtube. So far here are parts 1 and 2
of the series.

part 1


part 2


I hope you guys enjoy and i hope these videos may help others trying to tackle
this swap. Feel free to ask questions or give advice on my videos. This is my first
time swapping a motor in a BMW so this is a learning process for me. Ill try to be as detailed and in depth as possible.

Lots of work left to do and more videos to come.

From my research , this is all the wiring that has to be done .

The electronic pedal must be used and that's it. Also a few pins need to be moved as you can see in this table.

according to hackster its not accurate https://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=1120893

still waiting wiring info from him, probably still ironing the kinks on his 323i S54 before sharing.. https://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...687&highlight=

would appreciate if you can share the wiring info when done and parts list for those who don't have the whole parts car..
