Looks like a TD5 belhousing, but could be wrong as the picture does not show a good pattern view because of the odd angle.

One things for sure. It's only going to mate to a DOT approved engine, so a 300Tdi or TD5 is definitely out of the question. I was ecstatic when it arrived because It was quite the ordeal getting it here. After it reached customs in New York it sat there for a couple weeks until it was sent back to the UK and then sent back to the USA and then finally made it through. It was sent via Parcelforce. The seller Black Country 4X4 was fantastic to deal with. The matching new flywheel and clutch took only 2 days to arrive via DHL from carparts4less.co.uk, who was also fantastic.

I'm going with an R380 short housing, but I'm actually more curious about all the trouble with customs. Why would a bell housing cause problems?

So what is it? A stubby will work on all 4 cylinders engines but not on the 300. It will but it isn't proper. The 200 tdi isn't dot/EPA approved so based on what you say I am not sure if I am right.

Now the real question is which engine will you be putting in front of it. M52 6cyl? M57 diesel? M62 V8?

This is the tracking number you can enter on USPS's site: EK226700853GB. I can only guess customs sent it back. The paperwork was in order so the reason why is a mystery to me.

I'm going to mate it to 3.0 M54 out of a 2006 X3. More power than the V8 and (fingers crossed) better on gas. I have a friend who regularly gets over 30 MPG on the highway in 2 of his BMW's with the same engine.

What are you doing for engine management?

I have always been very interested in the BMW R380 bellhousing and am honestly surprised no one has pursued it further.

For all the drama that has been made of the Duratorq 5cyl being made "EPA approved", there has been the option of installing the M57 turbo diesel from a 3 series or X5 for several years now using factory parts and nobody has even raised an eyebrow.

I will make a build thread once the work starts getting underway. I'm using the MS43 ECU from an 01 3-Series. I sent it to a tuner to disable things like EWS, CANbus, Dynamic Stability Control, etc. I haven't found anyone who is able to flash the MS45 from the X3 and from what I can tell the only major difference is that the MS45 supports Sport mode which changes the electronic throttle sensitivity when activated.
