    Kassel Performance is pioneering a similar swap here in a 318ti. They have already swapped the N52 with great success, and I'll be working with them on doing this swap in my wagon, along with converting it to manual.

    i believe hes in talks with Clutchmasters to make a flywheel and clutch kit. Trial and Error fitment for a few US gearboxes (5 and 6 speed ZFs and a 420G gearbox), and if all fails, getting a box from a 330D from across the pond.

    I can find boxes readily available from the UK for 3-500 bucks plus freight. 530D rear diffs are 20-100 bucks LOL. Will be an interesting project to say the least, as a deleted M57 is leagues more reliable over the N54.

    I'll prolly start one when I actually pick up the donor vehicle from a Co-Part Auction. Kassel was really good with finding theirs so when the time comes i'll be contacting them for help.

    Im not usually the type to have a thread going for years and years. When the bulk of the heavy lifting starts, I'll be posting up lots of pics.

    I'm hoping to have some updates on my build soon :D

    It's the 'waiting' on custom parts that kills the enthusiasm....stuff just takes FOREVER to be delivered.
