Hi guys, I'm new to the forum and my first post so please be gentle.
I've got an e30 with a m60 6 speed swap, which I'm considering swapping the guts into an e46 coupe. The reason being that I bent the front chassis rails in a crash and it's been sitting at the back of my workshop ever since, I don't really want to repair the car as I was never fully happy with it and have lost interest in it. I feel I could do a much better job with a fresh build, having learnt alot from the e30.
So, I'm looking for advice on what I can use from my old car on an e46.
Can i fit the E36 diff into the e46 subframe?
I've heard the e30 front subframe is better for a v8 swap, if that's true I can just swap mine over?
Are e36 and e46 front top mounts interchangeable? I'm using e36 struts and m3 brakes on the e30 so would like to swap them to.
The v8 engine harness and ecu is self contained, but will the e46 electrics be happy without talking to the engine?
