Default M73B54 in E30

Hello, everyone!

I am buying a M73B54 engine these days to swap in into an e30 touring.

I would appreciate your advice and recommendations.

Thanks in advance!

If you've to ask what needs to be done, you can't do it

Anyways, it's an awesome swap and needs lots of work, good luck!
