    Bear with me i'm new.. but i bought an E36 318ti fell in love n decided to swap the motor out for something a bit bigger. I found a 323i lump & box locally but iv ran into a few problems....the power steering pipe to the pump wont fit, iv been trying to source one that fits with no joy, it needs a 'banjo' type fitting at both ends my local BMW seem to think the racks/pumps are the same on both the 318 & the 323 is this right? - does anyone know a pipe that will fit?? also i'm finding it near impossible to find an o/s front engine mount bracket! Once these are in i can start messing about with the exhaust, i have a MAF meter on order & then i should be ready to try and fire it up - any help would be massively appreciated & also any tips or advice for completing the swap THANKS! Dean

    Take your pump and hose to your local pirtek or hose doctor and
    They will make one there and then
