    Default Mercedes-Bmw (W201 with M50)

    ! Build complete for finnished pics: Showroom-topic

    Hello, well start of this project was pretty damn long and this is going to have shitty pictures of filthy parts and cars.. story short:

    Bought MB W201 190E with 1.8 Automatic?!, abused it the winter and wanted to make some cool car for summer. Soo i endup buying 800€ E34 525i with M50B25, the engine runs nicely(well did) and now for some photos:




    And this is where it needs to go:


    and here is some parts i got for it.



    And sorry for those who would like to see something cool to be built, this is just slap it in and go type of build. And for cleaning and painting the parts NAAAH! more sleeper look when they are all crappy outside but in working order

    cause of? less power more litres? M50B25 is damn fine engine. (M103 3.0 = 177 or 185hp? compared to M50b25 = 192hp) M50 is kinda M104 territory..

    Well a M103 is a simple swap where minimal fabrication is needed. If you are willing to do all the extra work to get the bmw motor to fit, go right on ahead. More power to ya. Literally lol.
    I just like how you're using the w201 for the swap haha.

    Soooo today... i've learnt some new thing about W201 chassis, and well those are not good things..


    "so it fits nicely!", NO



    but well as i removed the headers, and sliced the metal next to engine it kinda fitted.. but i still have some issues with the Merc steering rod?! thingy on the middle.. but i think i can solve that by modifying the oilpan..

    good day otherwise, oh also i need to cut the driveshaft tunnel to fit "normal" shifter

    and then the engine mounts...


    some griding and welding needs to be done...

    Exami, be sure to not put the engine too close of the firewall to let room for the exhaust. It's an error I made with my 2JZ.

    This is awesome. My friends and I always joke of swapping an S14, E30M3 engine, into my Cosworth 190e.

    Nice to get some open minded reactions/comments... hopefully next weekend i get the car started, that would mean i got some custom parts done... starting from engine & gearbox mounts + wiring... after that is only custom exhaust + custom cooling + custom driveshaft todo oh and center console + instruments

    I've set a date "end of this month" when this car needs to be in driveable condition(some small bits can be missing but has to be ready for road.)
