You do have a point. Trade the 2001 for a late model and there could be many advantages with careful planning. With the factory 6-speed MT there's no hunting around and labor involved in the...

Look at my signature. While it's auto to 6-speed, it's essentially the same process. The benefit is you don't have to deal with deconstructing the auto part.

The drive line is different as are the...

Are you absolutely certain the leak is coming from the RMS and not the housing?

The housing can have weird sealing issues because you are trying to seal right angle surfaces at the same time. I...

Yes, ZF to ZF. You cannot got ZF to GM unless you want a butt-ton of headaches. Worse than going manual IMO. GM tranny uses different wiring harnesses.

I'm over 28k since this mod. In the last 8k miles I haven't burned more than half a quart. This is amazing because before this mod I was sucking down 1 quart every 1200 miles.

Yes you can get cruise control without the EGS installed. That's how I did it.

You need to have the clutch switch installed to do it. It stops the engine from over-reving when you press the clutch...

I'm 20k miles into this mod and for me it was the holy grail. In 20k miles I've only been down 2 quarts. Before this mod I would have burned 12-15 quarts in the same distance.

Interesting that they did all the R&D work and it's still not on their site for sale for the E46. From the sounds of it they may not have completed their homework assignment.

Somebody here swapped the front seats but I doubt much else would fit since the chassis/body are different. Some other pieces might fit like steering wheel and shift knob, maybe but not much else.
