The Sikky LSX swap kits are designed for use with the LS series of motors (LS1-LS9) and the T-56 transmission. Our kit requires no modifications to the factory cross member or subframe and does not hang below the crossmember when installed. When using the Sikky kit it’s a direct drop in solution. The Sikky motor mounts are CNC machined billet aluminum versus the mig welded sheet metal mounts that other kit manufacturers provide. Our products are built to the highest standards. Every component offered in the kit was completely designed in-house by our team of engineers from the ground up. Unlike our competitors that retro fit off the shelf bushings and other parts from different manufacturers, our urethane transmission and motor mount bushings are designed specifically for these applications. We build our oil pans with a 1/2″ thick flange and back plate to provide superior strength that will outlast and outperform other pans available. All our products are tested under rigorous track conditions to ensure our customers are provided only the highest quality parts available.
Vehicle: 1984-1991 BMW E30 3 Series
Fitment Notes: Required to run E36 steering rack and run eye ball arms for header clearance. The headers also require the use of our low profile steering shaft. Below is a link to the required steering shaft –

The factory master cylinder needs to be removed or replaced on this swap to allow clearance for the engine. With this we offer two different solutions.
Power Brakes – Our Hydroboost system for the E30 allows you to convert your factory braking system over to a hydroboost system. This system utilizes the pressure in your power steering system to allow for easy (more of a factory pedal feel) when you are using the brakes.

Manual Brakes – We also offer a brake booster delete kit for the E30 for customers looking for a lighter weight combination. This also allows for less clutter in the engine bay for a cleaner look. Brake pedal feel on this will be still and require a moderate amount of pedal effort to slow down the vehicle.

Transmission and Shifter – This kit requires use of a LS1 style T56 or 4L60E transmission. With the T56 this kit will allow for the shifter to come through the factory hole, allowing for easy and factory looking installation / operation.
Wiring – With use of a Wiring Specialties harness in conjunction with this kit, all of the factory gauges can be operational to allow for an OEM look and feel.
