    S85 Swap into 335 e92?

    Got a couple questions, has anyone done this?
    Curious to what would be needed to get this done.
    Right now I have a FBO E92 335i Trapping 120mph but I want to swap my AT transmission for a manual. While searching ebay I ran across a lot of S65 engine and S85 engines. I love the sound of the S85 V10 and would love to swap for one. My 335 currently weighed 3370lbs right now so I think this engine would make this car a beast.

    any info on this would help with my project.
    Thanks

    The S85 has been swapped into the E9X chassis. Manhart-Racing has done his several times.

    You would need to swap your AT for either the manual S85 trans or the SMG trans.

    It honestly makes more sense to tune your 335 as this is going to be a lot of work at considerable cost.

    Yeah I would want to go with a SMG Trans... What all needs to be done after getting engine, transmission and wiring? Coding cost a lot?

    Thanks

    You'll need to get the engine in which is going to take a bit of labor, then the transmission, wire it up, get it working with the factory DME, make sure I-drive plays nice, etc.

    This is for an E46 M3 but gives you an idea:
