    using E46 3.2 (BMW) Engine with G50??? need help

    I am planning to use an E46 M3 3.2L (supercharged ) engine in my 355. Anyone know of a reliable transaxle? Will the getrag 5 sp handle it? What about an Audi trans? or maybe the G50 Porsche? Anyone know of any adapter kits out there for BMW engines to any of these transaxles? Has anyone ever done this? I am still in the early stages of my build, I have completely stripped and stretched the fiero chassis. I am now working on the drivetrain and could use some insight. I appreciate your responses

    what's not drivable about a BMW engine? The ebay link was for fun only, way too expensive to maintain. I am very serious about the 3.2 six or possibly the BMW 5.4 V8 out of a 540I. Anyone know of a transaxle I can use? I would prefer to use a G50 if possible, could use some insight.
