Want someplace to tell about all the plastic parts you broke doing your interior swap? Or what about the pics of your foot after you dropped your transmission on it? Post up the epic project threads here from all the days you've spent working on your E36.

E36 v12 idea

Hello all,

I'm the proud owner of a 93 318IS, which needs a new motor. I considered rebuilding it, until i found a 750IL motor for 250. It has 176k miles. wondering about which transmission I would need and any info any of you have about swaps. I'm no stranger to cars, but have never done a job this size..

Thanks for your time.

Hi and welcome to the tech. I'm assuming u have a E38 M73 Engine correct? If so, according to Realoem.com, the transmission that mates with this motor is this one...


Now, I've also heard of ppl retrofitting a different transmission and rearend out of a C4 or C5 Corvette, but I'm not sure what type of budget you're looking to spend either seeing as u found that motor for 250. Also, if u didn't get the Wiring harness and ECU for that motor then it will not work properly so be sure to have those handy as well. Good luck on your build and I hope this helps.
