1972 BMW 2002 M42 Swap
This was a fairly low key swap. It actually came to us have started or would it be half finished. Another shop out east started it (using out mount kit) but it got stalled out and sat. So the owner contacted us and shipped it out our way to finish it up.
The engine was in the car when it was shipped to us but we did end up pulling it out to look everything over. Good thing we did as the throw out bearing was installed backwards.
In addition to finishing up the swap we cut a coil off the front springs...yes you can do that. It's not going to burst into flames. Just understand if cutting a coil the spring rate does go up somewhat.
Not a ton of pictures on this one... If you want to see any of them (and more) in full size scroll down to the gallery.

LOVE these walker turbo style mufflers for M4202.
Exhaust all tacked up.
Welded up and ready to go!
