>Is this a front to back swap or just through the tranny?
This should be a front to back swap, as the rear ratio for the
325e is substantially different (2.79:1 or 2.93:1 for the 325e vs. 3.64:1
or 3.90:1 for the 318i).
You may want to also bring over the rear swing arms and rear disc
brakes over from the 325e.
>Any critical areas with electronics or fuel? Don't intent to swap the OBC,
>but might if it is practical.
You will definitly need the engine harness, ECU, and ICU (idle control unit).
Get the ETM (electrical trouble shooting manual) for both cars to assist
in this conversion (I'm about to start a 325e->325i conversion).
