The m42 swap is one of our specialties. I did the swap on my personal car about five years ago and have not had to touch anything engine related since. The m42 comes from the 91-95 BMW 318s. (91 being the best for the swap). The engine is light, high revving, economical, and VERY reliable. If you are looking for mounts check the shop link above. Or if you want to send your car to us for a conversion please contact us.
Another M42 swap for a customer. 72 BMW 2002 with lots of extras…automatic, ac, cruise, etc. This car is daily driven.
For all the information on this build follow the thread on BMW2002FAQ here.
This car came in the fall and left in the winter. This is a picture when it left but I like the picture so much it has to go first.
M42 in and done!
An interior shot…notice the automatic trans, cruise control, etc
