heres my question:

I've heard that you can take a
2.7L 528 (?eta?) bottom end and
put a 325is head/injection/ecu/etc.
together and get a serious hotrod
of a motor..

Is this conversion just that simple?
If I get an 87-88 325is topend and
get a same year 528 shortblock, can I
put these together or is there some
machining to be done?

Will my 87-88 donor 325is trans bolt up
to a 528 bottom, or do I have to use a
5 series trans?
