Amazing. So much work and detail here!

Would it have been as easy to do an SMG S54 swap compared to the 6 speed?
you would need to do a body harness swap to make it easier. the body harness has the plugs and wires for the SMG modules, shifter and sensors in the cabin.

15mm spacers I believe.

Probably the sickest ZHP build ever? But I have to ask, why in the hell did you go stock headers....

Retained M54 AC compressor and changed to a different belt we got from autozone.
Thank you for mentioning that in the first post, I hadn’t noticed anyone saying there was a difference in A/C compressors.
I started engine bay disassembly for my M3 swap this morning and noticed belt width difference. I was planning on not opening my functional Touring A/C system.
And am glad to know the 325 compressor & narrow belt will work.
