    After a number of years as a member of this forum and not making much progress on my restoration, I have recognise that I just don't have the time or the space to complete my DIY powertrain swapout and I need to find a competent garage to do the work for me.

    As much as it pains me to admit defeat and pay someone to do the work, I wonder if there are any recommendations of places that can install the following for me at a reasonable rate:
    - M30b34 engine c/w ECU
    - Getrag 265/5 dogleg gearbox c/w peddle box
    - Locking rear diff
    - Disc brakes all round (front vented, rear solid c/w rear beam)

    Any recommendations from people in the UK?

    Cheers

    Andy

    PS. I'm midlands based.

    I recommend you avoid Little Compton Garage at all costs - pm me for a number of reasons why

    @pat cooks would have been the go to guy as every time I visited the work shop he had an E9 getting more power or more gears put in.

    Munich Legends may do it but don't expect it to be cheap!

    I would guess that I had a lucky escape then. I am intrigued by why they might have a bad reputation. Anyone want to PM me on this?

    well thanks for the nice words guys, I have been retired for over a year now and am not missing 7 day weeks for no reward, the last 10+ years were very bad for me, the 90's were very good though, there is so much advice around it should not be hard to carry out a "normal" upgrade or conversion, I have done nothing with my E9's in the last year, have built up my WW1 motorcycle though, this winter? we shall see, picture is me on the 1914 machine gun Matchless at the tank museum Amiens 100th event last week....

    Gather all the parts, invite Don Lawrence to fly in for a week, find some good pubs to kill time with Don for four of those days.
