Just a quick update on the Vorshlag Forum Build Thread for our BMW E46 “Alpha” car LSx V8 swap project, showing the header progress from the last few weeks. Getting close!
Cool project would like to be kept updated on this transformation!! Would like to see a completely street machine with all bmw options!!!
I have a RHD E46 02 330ci Convertible, I am looking to put a LS3, a T56 5 speed, I have a M3 LSD centre ready to go, so can you or do you sell conversion parts like, engine mounts, gearbox mounts (these wont change from LHD or RHD) exhaust headers (will these fit into RHD), is the sump you are using from Holley, and can you advise about the electrics. I would like to keep the BMW gauges, A/c, etc, however I dont need T/C and if I do I can run it through a Motec or Haltech EMS. Am I better off to do a Haltech or Motec EMS as the engine controller, will it make the conversion between the BMW computer easier. If not how far have you got with the compatability issues between the Can bus issues, is there light at the end of the tunnel. I have 7 other guys asking if I complete this can I do similar conversions for them. I would appreciate any advice.
Nothing we are making in our E46 LSx kit will fit RHD cars – sorry. The tolerances are just too tight, and the engine is offset away from the LHD steering shaft to make it all fit. You are better off going with custom built headers, mounts, and the rest. Sorry.
Hi guys from australia.
I am purchasing a lsx at the moment for my e46 323 1999 bmw.
I have followed your site for a while now,so any chance of a kit soon or even some prices for what you can provide.
