S54 going in!

Build022 1990 BMW E30 325iX S54 075

With the custom oil pan built the S54 could actually fit into the iX.

The engine mounts from the iX M20 are re-used on the S54 after drilling and tapping the S54 from M8 to an M10 bolt.

We used a spec 2+ M20 clutch to hold the power of the S54.

The best way to fit the engine and trans in is from the bottom. I'm not sure going from the top as one unit could even happen.
