Different Types of Motor Mounts One of the last steps before dropping in a into an automotive swap is making sure the engine fits snugly in-between the motor mounts. The lower gears are all super, first gear is similarly short as in a tuned 325i, but at twice the engine power. Thus a driveshaft has to be custom made with the help of a E34 540i drive shaft.
