Also remember that the 540 uses a unique diff input flange compared to all other e34s.

It is the same flange as the e38 740 and e39 xxx

Thanks, I agree with a 1:1 fifth gear a 3.91 rear is way too high , thanks for that.

I can't find the correct gear ratios for the M60B30/60 5 speed online ...

the color above looks like granite silver.

Not sure if it was answered but you want the B40 mafs, the b30 is smaller (same mafs used on b30 and m50b25).

When i had my 530iT i swapped a b40 intake manifold, throttle body and mafs (and software), it's been shown to be worth about 18-20hp at the wheels on a b30.

I bought a set of staggered M-Pars from Taffy yesterday which should go on the car with some new tyres this week. Probably Toyo T1R or Yokohamas depending on what's in stock.

Hi Mike,

I'll buy a new MAF anyway, dirt cheap for the M60B40 , $220 ex USA from pelican parts.

Cool

Nice.
I also wanna see Your Red M5

It is said that if you line up all the cars in the world end to end, someone would be stupid enough to try and pass them.
