Amazing build. You must be uber proud of it! Love that you kept and fitted the BMW engine cover. Your garage looks fantastic...

Wahey, that's 2 of these now, done mine around the same time as you but into a mk6 van
I'm running the manual bm box purely for the rate of failure of the auto e39 gm box
I had immobiliser deleted & the loaded with a 250hp map, big front mount cooler, open pipe although I am adding a small silencer

I didnt drop mine back quite as far as you though as wanted a little clearance behind the head but it's by far the best thing I've done, makes it do much nicer

I swapped axle to a 3.15 ratio from a mk7

Currently sorting the bits for going up to 400hp

Good work

This is incredible, I've not long joined so flicking through some of the projects. I love the fact you've swapped this over and managed to get it to work so well AND that it's actually a working truck. Fair play to you.

That's it a few weeks back with a tdi golf, it can be raised with the bags so height can be adjusted
