    Hey Jason what about any updates on the a/c and cooling hose kit? I know when we talked a few months back you made it sound like they were just about to hit the production phase.

    We keep striking out trying to find a RHD car. We had a "front cut" ordered from a local importer but it never materialized. Every RHD car we look at is a rust bucket.

    I just ordered the whole LS e46 swap kit from you guys last week, and the first round of parts should arrive tomorrow. Amazing customer service too, by the way. Can't wait to get it all installed! Now if only there was a wiring harness solution, that's the part I am really dreading.

    Are you going to offer an E39 kit?

    contact Jesus Freak. He already has a kit, it's well made and the price is far cheaper than Vorschlag could ever hope to be.

    I assume this product is DOA?

    Interested in one as well. Would go well with everything else I've converted to AN fittings and lines.

    Not DOA, but in line behind a number of other parts (mainly suspension stuff) that are going into production.

    Any idea when you might have E90 LS1 swap parts available?

    Hello. My son and I are working on an E36 323is conversion to LS1 with auto. Our biggest question is the rear diff....is there an M3 or other LSD unit that will bolt in and handle up to 400 hp? We're doing this on a fairly limited budget and would appreciate any advise available. Thanks!!

    While we normally don't tackle LS V8 swaps when the factory makes a V8 version of the same chassis (E92 M3), we are starting.... just starting to get a few questions about the E90 and E82 chassis. We are looking at them for LS swap viability now.

    Honestly the E36 M3 188mm rear differential unit is a great unit to work with. You can pick up an M3 rear subframe/diff/suspension for about $500-1200 "brake to brake" from a salvage yard. That bolts into any E36 non-M and gives you the limited slip diff, upgraded halfshafts, upgraded control arms, and M3 spindles/brakes. Or just buy an M3 diff and swap in the whole unit, or have your 188mm open diff converted to limited slip.



    We put 500 whp though one of these 188 M3 units for years, using 315mm Hoosiers and even standing starts. For serious road course use I'd add a diff cooler, but otherwise your 400 hp goal seems well within the limits of this completely bolt-in unit.

    Here are more weights from the the 1999-03 Mustang Cobra 8.8" aluminum rear housing (62.9 lbs, at left) and the "medium case" BMW E36 housing (76.9 lbs, at right). The weight for the "large case" E46 M3 unit is above, at 100.4 pounds. All of these weights are complete housings with the factory rear covers, factory gears, and factory differential units. The BMW housings are heavier because they are cast steel - which is stronger than aluminum - but what usually breaks is the actual ring gear.



    Ask around but there are some folks on here who have built a kit to swap in the larger 210mm BMW "large case" differential unto an E36. Its a little "home brew" but hey, if it works, who cars?

    good luck,
