    • Awron's S85 engine swap kit lets you put an M V10 in whatever BMW you want to

      You should be familiar with the various BMW engine swaps Awron helps facilitate with their electronics. If not, here's a quick refresher. They have a swap kit for the BMW N54 engine and as well as the N63/S63 twin turbo V8 motors.


      Well, add an S85 swap kit to the list and if you want BimmerBoost's opinion (of course you do) putting an M V10 under the hood of a BMW is the coolest engine swap that can be done.

      For example, remember when someone put an S85 under the hood of a Z3 coupe? They basically made a German Viper.

      As for what this kit costs Awron did not provide that info. Additionally, it seems you may need to use a digital gauge cluster for this to work but it is Plug and Play with what they give you.

      Now who wants to put an S85 under the hood of a Z8?


      The engine electronics package has the following properties:

      Motor control fully OBD, EOBD diagnostic capability
      DSC disabled
      Secondary air system disabled
      Adapted configuration diagnostic ECU network on autonomous use
      Disabled engine diagnostic probes and function
      Configuration manual
      Oil pump fully functional for lateral acceleration
      Sport button is disabled (can be installed and configured to customer requirements)
      With this engine package you can take any S85 engine in operation, regardless of where it is installed. Based on the series software, we have developed software that allows the engine no longer has to rely on the complete electrical system. He jumps in all conditions and runs like a train engine.

      The kit is designed so that it provides you the opportunity to incorporate this in various BMW models and connected to the existing electrical system.

        I have a friend who has had struggling with Awron guys with this exact box (S85 into E46) for quite a long time. And it was damn expensive. He eventually got it running though.

        There was problem with the box and the harness. He had to send it back to get fixed. Its running now, not perfect though.

        Hmm I see. Why didn't you get that guy on the forum?

        How much did it cost and what isn't running perfect? Swap isn't seamless I guess?

        He's a lurker. I think he is indeed a member here. I'll ask him full story.

        It was close to 5000 euros with all the hardware and display. He was i think the first customer they had. Maybe they have up'd their game since then.
