    Thanks Enda, was hoping you'd chip in.

    Rubbish. I was under the impression this would be a straight forward fit!

    Not sure I really want to change the gearbox. So would a prop shaft guy be able to chop and fabricate my 325 prop or do I need to get a 3.0 prop as well to cut and shut :(?

    If it comes to it, are a 328 and M3 3.0 gearbox the same?

    thanks again

    Elliot

    328 and M3 3.0 gearboxes are the same.
    The problem is the front end at the gearbox is a small donut on a 325 (large on the M3 and EVO) so there are no ready made props with a small front flange, and a CV joint for the M3 at the back.
    I used an evo prop, which was shorter to start with, and the extra made up with careful cutting, and the front of the 325 welded on.

    The white paint was something so they knew what bits to keep together.

    Here is a 328i we did in 2006
    This car was owned by t1000 and from the mods on this car and him testing them is where most of the info comes form tuning these 328i

    Now days we can make a 328i nearly as quick with no m3 cams

    I believe that you can use the Driftworks Single Mass Flywheel and an M3 clutch to get rid of the dual mass on a 328, but please correct me if I'm wrong.
    E36 Lightweight Flywheel

    You might also need an M3 selector fork, according to an earlier post in this thread.

    What were the mods on that 328 mate? That's a pretty impressive figure considering you haven't even replaced the cams.
    There are only two products required to make the universe work properly: Duct tape and WD40. 


    If it moves (and it shouldn't): duct tape. 
If it doesn’t move (and it should): WD40.

    Everything else is just stuff.

    This was the dyno from t1000's 328i which was tuned back in 2006
    And yes it had USA m3 cams fitted

    Holy thread resurrection batman!

    Guys I have been searching for days for a definitive answer to this question for my 328: I have just bought an evo LSD. I know it will need the larger diff carrier and evo drive shafts. Do I need to change anything else on the rear axle when fitting this diff?

    Pleeeeeaaaassee help!!

    To fit on a 328, you'll ideally want the complete M3 3.2 rear axle, the carrier is ready to go, the driveshafts too, and you'll also get some massive rear brakes.
    You can't swap the input flange on the evo diff, so you'll also want an M3 3.0 propshaft as that has the correct CV joint at the rear (as opposed to a UJ) and it is the correct length for a 5 speed box.
    The Evo prop is shorter as the 6 speed gearbox takes up more space.

    Great! thanks for that!

    Any ideas where I could get the rest of the axle in one piece including the carrier?

    Out of interest, could I just bolt in a new carrier, driveshafts and 3.0 prop and use the current rear axle components without any problems?

    Cheers!
