This is my personal project to build a DD with a bit more UMPH. I bought an 85 528e with a bad engine but a lot of upgrades. I then bought a wrecked 99 camaro with a 55k miles LS1/T56 (6 speed). I parted out the camaro and kept the engine, trans, wiring, etc to use in my swap. In addition to the engine swap I replaced all the suspension components, wheel bearings, brakes, etc etc. So under an almost 30 year old car lives a brand new car.

I will eventually update the info here with the entire build but here are a few pictures.
Cleaned up the engine bay….newly powder coated subframe
Lots and Lots of wiring
