Project Cars

Andy Kritikos was at the forefront of BMW “swaps,” and has been constructing them since the early 1980s. Here are just a few of the conversions AKG has done over the years.

Since we’ve had many requests for information on swapping M50 motors into e30 bodies, as well as swapping euro motors into e36 or e30 bodies, these pages will also help our visitors understand what’s involved in those projects.

We are now focusing entirely on our parts manufacturing business, and no longer take on any swap projects.

NOTE: the content contained herein is for informational purposes only. We do not intend it as an installation guide, nor are we responsibe for the outcome if you try to do this yourself.
