Cool build. I definitely prefer this over another LS swap.

I'd be interested to see more of the e21 and e30!

Thanks, I plan to do a E30 S62 Life after people revival thread coming up in June.
It's in pretty bad shape right now. Kind of like my own barn find. Standby for that coming up!

Ok, so more progress today. Today we worked on the Brake Booster Vacuum Line and the Engine Ground, but also cleaned up a little the heater hose return from the firewall down through and across to the pump.

Not much to say on the booster vacuum line. Pretty self-explanatory and relatively easy hookup. Just needed to use, yes, another Oetiker clamp! Gotta love those. I did something similar for the heater hose, so make the hose a bit more single-pieceish.

Engine ground was pretty easy too. Just make a large gauge wire that goes from the engine block to the body frame. I don’t think I picked an ideal spot for the engine frame unfortunately. I didn’t have the room I wanted to drill into the frame, so when we take the motor out, I might relocate it. The video tells all, here. Again – pretty self explanatory.

As a courtesy, I watned to send you guys a pictogram of the power steering lines and how I hooked it up. Hope this helps.

Ok guys, so today we tackle the fuel system! I've decided to take the existing fuel system completely out and replace it with a known newer E46 M3 version.

So this is the old assembly from the E36 M3.


Here is the new E46 M3 Filter and Regulator. You can simply not use the regulator vacuum line. The regulator regulates the incoming fuel pressure to 5 bar, which should be more than enough for the N54.


And I labeled each of the 5 tubes (Pipes) going from front of the car to the rear of the car. Includes the 2 brake lines.


Now on to the video! It is pretty comprehensive in terms of what's entailed for the installation.
