    I'm doing a engine swop, a M52 into an E30.
    My m52 has a EWS, so is a coded key to the ring around the ignition barrel.
    Can I do away with the EWS by bypassing the wires in the loom, or do I have to use the ignition barrel and key from the E36 and put it into E30, are they interchangable ?

    This wiring is so complicated it's doing my head in.

    Cheers Neil, Got the EWS module, where is the DME programmed for code table in the wiring
    The M52 is a 1998 328i sport.
    Nearly stripped all the 328i and dont want to get rid of the shell with ant bits I need still on the car

    Then it will be EWS 2 without rolling codes which makes life easier . You might want to do some research on an EWS delete chip if you can find one for your M52. You can install this to by pass the EWS in the E30. Otherwise you will want a blank DME for the code table to be programmed one time only from the EWS module you are about to transfer

    Great Neil, It's all a bit over my head, but I get the jist of what you are saying.
    I'll need to get everything I may need off of the 328i and then when the E30 is getting wired I can get someone who knows auto electrics to sort this out, it'd be good if I could get a chip to bypass the EWS.

    Tape the key securely into the antenae ring.

    Just add the EWS box, transmitter, key/antenna ring to the E30's wire harness. Continue to use your key on the steering column and doors as it is, and you're set.

    I'd take out all the plugs with as much wire as possible from the donor car, that way its easy. Bentley manual should do for wiring.

    My race car is set up this way, no bother, AND if you want, removing the key from the antenna means NO ONE is going ot easily drive your car off.

    Yeah, sure, if they had a salvage dme,key,ews box they could swap all three items and drive off... but thats a lot of work, and a lot of planning ahead, and they'd have to know ahead of time your car was swapped.

    Good luck!

    The 328i runs a Siemens DME which is the flash type. You cannot get an EWS delete chip for these. You can only get a delete chip for Bosch motronic ECU's....
    A blank DME is the only way for these....

    Seconded above....


    I have been lookin into this recently as i wanted to put a 328i engine into my E36 325, as I have the engine, loom etc but im not gonna bother because of the EWS issues....

    This site is a brilliant source of info for your conversion. After reading, it seems they do keep the EWS with there conversions...
