Thinking about rebuilding one of these with a M20 2.5 motor using the Eta bottom end [makes it a 2.7]

anyone out there ever messed with these? i have had 2 E30s and they share some parts, so i'm not too worried about taking on too much.

to be brutally honest it's a pipe dream at the moment, but i wanted to have a discussion about it. :)

i have owned a few etas and the engine /box are controlled via sensors which might prove to be a problem

i think the manual box bolts straight onto the eta bottom end [E28 525e] so this shouldnt be an issue. :)
