Hi everyone. I fitted an M50B25 NV motor in my e46, however the motor is sitting almost an inch to the back. So now I can't bolt on the gearbox support bracket because it ain't lining up. I wanted to fit my e46 mounts, but it doesn't bolt to m50 block. I was thinking of drilling and tapping...
Just wondering if an M50B25 will fit directly to E46 engine mounts?

-clean motor (one of us is going to test compression before the purchase)
-all accessories working - that means alternator, PS pump, alternator
-includes engine harness
-includes intake mani, throttle body, intake stuff
-prefer to have e34 oil pan already(ie pulled from a 525)...
